Ok ladies (and guys), this is an article most of us can relate to! I am sure most of you have at least one flat iron, curling iron or blow dryer which gets used weekly or more. Even if you use a heat protector on your hair, repetitive use can dull or cause split-ends on your lovely locks. What to do? Read this article for best products to try and home remedies, to help add some moisture to your hair and bring back a silky texture.
Tried and loved products: below are a few products I’ve used which worked for me. They range in price, so you can find one that fits your budget. Â Though it worked for me, I can’t guarantee it’ll do the same for you. So use this as a buying guide, and if one doesn’t work try another.
If you prefer going the do-it-yourself route, here are a few recipes:
Mayo and eggs hair masque:
Use about a cup of mayo (less or more depending on hair length) and whisk in one full egg. Blend together and simply apply to dry hair. Completely saturate hair and cover with a shower cap or plastic bag. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and rinse off. Shampoo hair as normal, Â dry and style. You can use this treatment weekly or every other week to treat and prevent damage. An alternative to mayo is an avocado.
Olive oil and vinegar treatment:
This treatment can also be used weekly or every other week. Work olive oil into hair, from scalp to ends. If you have time, give your scalp a light massage with the oil. Leave on hair for 10-15 minutes and rinse off using apple cider vinegar. Â Regular vinegar works fine as well. The vinegar helps add shine to hair and removes the oiliness of the olive oil.
Quick conditioner fix:
This is a simple remedy which you can use every time you shower. All you do is shampoo hair as normal, Â apply conditioner and leave on hair for 3-5 minutes. Doing this provides much needed moisture to your hair and will keep your hair tangle-free. You want to be sure the conditioner you use works with your hair, so splurge a little. Â One that I have been using and highly recommend is Biolage Exquisite Oil Creme Conditioner– it is lightweight and seriously leaves your hair feeling silky soft after you use it.
