How to Cure Heat Damage
If your hair has already suffered heat damage you’ll have to access the severity of the damage. Is past the point of no return? Sometimes, heat destroys the hair strand and the only surefire way to get rid of the damage is to cut it off. If you’re lucky, the damage is only on the surface, and you can try to fix your hair without a major cut.
After you shampoo and condition your hair, take a good look at it. While wet, does it break off with the least little tug? Does it look spongy? Once it dries, is it still breaking off if you so much as touch it? If so, this damage is irreversible, and really should be cut off as soon as possible. If your tresses aren’t yet at this point, you can try emergency measures to restore them. You’ll need:
- Deep conditioning
- No heat
A protein treatment is first. Protein ranges from mild to strong treatments. With heat damage, you’ll need one of the stronger varieties. Either visit your stylist to have it applied or you can try our Strengthening Amino Masque at home.
After using our deep conditioning masque it’s best to follow up with our Balanced Moisture Conditioner. While protein strengthens your hair, helping to fill in gaps of the hair cuticles that have been worn away by heat and manipulation, it can leave your tresses dry.
Follow up a deep condition by trimming or dusting your ends. This will even things up and get rid of any brittle ends that can affect your hair’s overall health.
Finally, avoid heat as much as possible while your hair recovers. Wet sets, wraps and natural styles are better during this recovery process. You may need to repeat your protein application in a month or so, or you can try gentle protein products that help maintain your hair’s strength. Alternate these with regular deep conditioning treatments. With good care, your tresses may recover from heat damage, but remember that it will take time, effort and patience.
