All the recent time spent at home, away from hair salons, have caused a lot of us to take matters into our own hands. While dying your own hair at home can be convenient, it can also be extremely damaging. We are not professionals, so we often find ourselves applying harsh box dye or bleach without addressing the effects. Sure, the colorful quarantine hair trends are cute, but bleaching at home can leave you with extremely dry, brittle hair. Continue reading to find out several tips on how to repair your color-damaged hair.
- Protect your hair from the sun. With summer in full swing, beach days have become a daily routine for us all. However, you may not know just how damaging the salt water and sun can be to your hair. You may have noticed that you are often left with “crunchy” hair after a dip in the ocean. This is because the salt water tends to dry out your hair’s moisture, leaving it drier and more brittle than before. Too much sun exposure can also have drying effects on your hair and fade your hair color. One simple tip to solving this problem is wearing a hat. Hiding your hair from the sun can immensely help maintain its moisture. Another step to take can be, applying a hair mask or conditioner immediately after a day of sunshine and swimming. FYAB’s Hair Vitality Conditioner maintains a thick consistency that is perfect to restore much needed moisture back to your hair. Bring this conditioner with you to the beach and run some of it through your hair after swimming in the ocean to notice an immediate difference in your hairs texture.
- Use a sulfate-free shampoo. Shampoo’s that contain sulfates often tend to strip too much moisture from your hair. Along with dry hair, sulfate shampoos may also leave you with a dry, itchy scalp. FYAB’s Hair Vitality Shampoo is a sulfate-free, vegan formula incorporating key ingredients such as caffeine and swiss apple stem cells, to promote healthy hair. Finding a good sulfate-free shampoo that contains natural ingredients can help transform your hair to smooth and vibrant in just a couple of washes.
- Incorporate leave-in products. Your hair can get thirsty without any leave-in products, just as your skin appears dull and dry without any moisturizer. One tip to restoring your damaged hair’s shine is to work in a serum or mask into your hair-care routine. Try a DIY natural hair mask with ingredients rich in vitamins and minerals such as; avocados, honey, coconut oil, eggs, and bananas. Investing in an effective, rich serum that provides extreme moisture, is also a vital step in restoring your hair. FYAB’s Hair Vitality Serum is perfectly formulated to address thinning, compromised hair while demonstrating reparative benefits after consistent use.
- Schedule regular haircuts. If the bottom of your hair is left looking dull and straggly then you are most likely left with split ends. I know that split ends can leave my hair feeling frizzy, making it difficult to simply brush through. Split ends can give your strands a tired look, keeping up with frequent trims can be a simple way to rejuvenate your hair. Getting frequent trims doesn’t mean you have to lose length. You can simply clean up the split ends, which will even result in faster hair growth, as it can be difficult to grow out your hair after it splits.
