Looking after your hair
Here is HHD's advice to help you prevent your hair from becoming damaged.
Using the correct products is an important method in looking after your hair.
Re-consider what shampoo and conditioner you should be using. Many drugstore products contain chemicals such as sulphates which actually cause more damage to your hair. Also make sure that your conditioner doesn't include silicon which can clog up the pores that produce natural oils and dry out your hair.
Spraying heat-protectant on your hair before using your heating tool, including blow dryers, straighteners and curlers, lessens the amount of damage. However it is important that you avoid using any heated tools if your hair is damaged, until it is in a better condition.
Protect your hair from the sun. If you are often out in the hot sun, then protect your hair by wearing a hat or bandanna; doing this can also help to protect your skin from getting burnt.
If you don’t like wearing hats, apply products that can protect your hair from the sun, such as protective leave-in conditioner, or watered down sunscreen.
Try to avoid using products that contain alcohol if you are going to be out in the sun, as these can damage your hair even more.
