As much as we all want to achieve beautiful, luscious and healthy hair, the dilemma of dry and damaged hair is a common hair concern many face. With stressors such as colouring, styling and heat application, keeping hair from damage can feel like a never-ending battle.
Our team of experts are here with their top tips on how to bring back the natural shine and prevent further damage to your hair.
Firstly, it is essential to know the causes of dry and damaged hair. Hair strands are coated with natural oil produced by the scalp to keep the hair hydrated and moisturised. But with the constant use of harsh shampoos, hot tools and other chemicals, these natural oils are stripped away, leaving the hair brittle, frizzy and dull.
To counter this, choosing hair products that are gentle and sulphate-free is essential. Using the right shampoo in particular can do wonders for your hair and prevent damage. The Josh Wood Colour Miracle Shampoo and Conditioner Fory Dry and Damages Hair has been developed with dry hair in mind. The duo works to protect and prevent damage to the hair and has been developed with the unique shine Complex of Quinoa Extract, Green Walnut and UV filters to protect hair colour vibrancy and deliver intense hydration.
Regular conditioning may not be enough for severely damaged hair so don’t forget to regularly deep condition your hair. Using the Josh Wood Colour Miracle Mask at least once a week will help repair and revive your hair. Apply the conditioner generously to your hair, focusing on the ends and rinse off after 5 minutes. For an extra treat leave on your hair over night.
Secondly, regular hair trimming is also essential to maintain hair health. Damaged ends can lead to further breakage and hair fall, resulting in an overall dry look. Trim your hair every 6-8 weeks to keep your hair healthy, smooth and shiny.
For healthy hair you must also cut down on heat styling. As tempting as it may be to use those hot styling tools, excessive heat can strip your hair of moisture, making it dry and brittle. Try using no-heat styling methods of applying a heat protectant when using hot tools.
Lastly, nourishing your hair from within is the key to damage-free hair. For those who regularly colour, try swapping to a gentle nourishing colour such as the Josh Wood Colour Miracle System. Formulated with groundbreaking technology to deliver condition deep into the shaft of the hair, meaning for the first time, the more you colour your hair, the more you improve its condition.
