Avoiding Potential Hair Damage
Swimming, going to the beach, and windy car rides can result in frizzy, tangled, dry, and seemingly unmanageable hair. Trying to reverse the damage can lead to more if you are unsure about the proper way to de-tangle and condition your hair. Here are some helpful steps to help get rid of your tangles.
1.Load up your hair with a moisturizing conditioner in your hair while in the shower. The conditioner will help smooth the cuticle on the out side of the hair which will result in less damage. Work in the conditioner until the hair starts to feel slippery.
2.Detangle the hair by using a wide-toothed comb. Gently comb through from ends to scalp until all of the tangles are loose.
3.Shampoo and condition the hair. Using a deep conditioner to prevent further damage is a smart option at this step. Redken offers the Strength Builder Plus mask and Pureology serves up and luxurious treat in their Strength Cure Mask.
4.Comb and then brush hair. Combing the hair first will help to prevent breakage.
5.Let the hair air dry. The hair has already suffered enough; heat drying it after the trauma of tangles may add to the dryness of the hair. If you truly must blow-dry, make sure to use a heat protecting product. Redken’s Pillow Proof Primer is a good choice as it will protect the hair up to 450 degrees.
