What is Damaged Hair + What You Can Do About It

If you've ever looked in the mirror and noticed your hair isn't as lustrous and healthy as it once was, you're not alone. Damaged hair is a common concern for many of us, and it can happen for a variety of reasons. But fret not, because in this guide, we're going to explore what damaged hair is, what causes it, and most importantly, what you can do to bring your locks back to life.

What is Damaged Hair + What You Can Do About It

What is damaged hair?

First things first, let's define what damaged hair actually means. Damaged hair is hair that has lost its natural structure and vitality. It often appears dry, frizzy, and dull. You might notice split ends, breakage, or a lack of shine – all telltale signs that your hair is not at its best. 


Common causes of damaged hair

Now that we know what damaged hair looks like, let's delve into what causes it. Knowledge is power, and understanding the root causes can help you take steps to prevent and repair damage.

Heat Styling: Frequent use of hot tools like straighteners and curling irons can weaken hair's protein structure, making it prone to damage.

Chemical Treatments: Coloring, perming, and chemical straightening treatments can strip your hair of its natural oils and leave it brittle.

Environmental Factors: Exposure to harsh weather conditions, UV rays, and pollution can take a toll on your hair, leaving it parched and lifeless.

Poor Hair Care Habits: Over-washing, using harsh shampoos, sleeping with wet hair and not conditioning properly can lead to dryness and damage.

Lack of Moisture: Hair needs moisture to thrive. Without it, it becomes brittle and prone to breakage.
