3. Don’t skip the heat protectant.
On that note – if you don’t use a heat protectant before styling your hair, you’re going to have a bad time.
“I often see people styling their hair without a protectant, forgetting that heat damage is irreversible,” says Natalie Ann.
This will only cause breakage, frizz and damage, so put that heat protectant on before hitting your hair with anything hot!
4. Use strong hair treatments.
“People underestimate the power of powerful hair treatments to prevent damage to their hair, moisturize it, reduce hair loss, and reduce split ends.
“I recommend a treatment from my own hair care line (Natalie Anne Haircare) – Charcoal Repair Mask Deep Hydrating Treatment ($49.95) – to my clients, especially after bleaching or coloring.”
5. Don’t wash your hair with hot water.
Exposing your face directly to hot shower water is no big deal, but did you know the same is true for your hair?
“Hot water can dry out your scalp, leading to itchiness and dandruff,” says Natalie Ann.
It explains…so much.
“Hot water weakens the roots and can also cause frizz, breakage, brittleness and flyaways. Always use cold water on your hair to keep it healthy.”
6. Protect your hair from the sun.
yes, friends. This is also a word!
According to Natalie Ann, protecting your hair from the drying effects of the sun is important for all hair types.
