How to Keep Your Hair Healthy and Make Haircuts Last Longer
What Causes Hair Damage?
5 minute read
If you’ve ever found yourself with major split ends after going too long between haircuts, or you’ve noticed your hair getting brittle after dyeing it, then you probably know that damaged hair is frustrating and expensive to deal with.
Unhealthy hair typically stems from one of the following causes:
- Too much heat
- Product build-up
The Importance of Trimming Your Hair Frequently
Whether you’re looking to improve your hair health or just want to prevent future damage, trimming your hair regularly is one of the best things you can do. Hair damage often starts at the ends and moves up the hair shaft.
With the CreaClip, you can cut your hair at home, saving time and money that you’d otherwise be spending at the salon. Simply gather your hair as if you were pulling it into a ponytail, clip the CreaClip over it and slide it down to the desired length. Then trim straight across or use point cutting — holding the scissors perpendicular to the hair and cutting in small, angled snips.
How To Keep Your Hair Healthy
If you just got a fresh haircut and want to keep it looking great, there are simple steps you can take to prevent future damage and help your haircuts last longer!
There are many products and treatments that promise to improve your hair’s health, and some of them can definitely make a difference. But before you invest time and money into trying them, take a moment to think through your hair care routine and figure out where you can replace your current habits with healthier ones.
For example, did you know that washing your hair every day can strip it of its natural oils? Try washing your hair a little less frequently, and when you do, use a gentle, hydrating shampoo.
If your hair is dyed, make sure the products you use are safe for color treated hair. You can also make your color last longer by washing your hair less often and rinsing it with cool water.
If you use heat on your hair, make sure you apply a heat protectant beforehand, and try setting your styling tool to a lower temperature.
My Hair is Already Damaged: Now What?
If your hair is already damaged, you should keep in mind that hair is a collection of dead cells that don't repair themselves. The easiest way to fix a problem like split ends might be to trim them off with the CreaClip and allow your hair to regrow.
Even so, there are steps you can take to bring softness and shine back to dry, unhealthy hair. Many of the common types of hair damage have to do with lack of moisture, which you can fix with hydrating conditioners, hair masks and oils. There are so many different products to choose from, so look for ingredients that address your unique concerns.
No matter your hair type, you can use the CreaClip Prep Spray as a daily leave-in conditioner. It also contains nutrients like Provitamin B5 and protein that will help your hair grow shinier and stronger.
