And of course: hydration, hydration, and… more hydration!
To start, we will ask you a question: do you know what your hair looks like inside? Maybe you didn’t know that hair is made up of a series of scales. To give you an idea and get an idea, think of the tiles on a roof. The point is that when those layers or scales of the cuticle are aligned, one on top of the other in a compact way, the core and the water it contains are protected, and the hair looks healthy and shiny. But with the passage of time, chemical processes such as discoloration or a dye, the sun, or simply the lack of care, these scales open, and the water inside comes out. The result? A dehydrated, damaged, curly hair, without any elasticity and lacking shine. Therefore, the first step is to close that cuticle and put the “tiles” back in order, one on top of the other.

To the rescue! Get your damaged hair back with these three tips
Very good. We are so glad you made it this far! That means you want to take care of your hair again and make it the same as a few months ago. Relax, everything has a solution, and your hair will recover perfectly with a bit of time and care. Let’s go with those infallible tips!
Start with a micro-cut and cut one centimeter a month
The first thing to do is to fight against the breakage of the ends since your hair seems much more neglected and spoiled when the ends look broken and lifeless. We understand that you may not want to give yourself a good cut in that long hair that you have had so much trouble getting. No problem, there is a solution to repair damaged hair gradually. To do this, go to the hairdresser once a month and ask your hairdresser or hairdresser to do a micro-cut for you. This consists of cutting about half a centimeter every 3-4 weeks, at least until your hair recovers noticeably.
The reason for this is straightforward: the tip of the hair tends to break very quickly due to external factors such as brushing, cold, ironing, or drying. By cutting it, it becomes stronger, preventing it from breaking and making the hair look healthy and uniform.
In short, we usually remind you: a regular visit to the hairdresser is necessary to keep your hair healthy and in the best hands!
Be careful with the heat if you want to avoid frizz
The heat opens the hair cuticles, letting out that moisture that we talked about at the beginning, which makes your hair hydrated and healthy. When you use the iron or the dryer excessively, your hair is porous and becomes more brittle, frizzy, and dry. This will reduce the shine of your hair considerably, and your mane is not soft to the touch.
If you like to use the iron to straighten your hair or make waves, you can toggle use with a collected or braid. These hairstyles are always flattering and never go out of style. That way, you will give your hair a break, and it won’t be damaged as much.
A suitable shampoo and mask for extra hydration
Although sometimes we do not give it the importance it has, using a shampoo and a mask adapted to the needs of your hair is essential. If your hair is curly and dehydrated, you will need a product that gives it the extra deep hydration it needs to start recovering.
