Look Past the Surface –Analyzing Types of Hair Damage

Disclaimer: If you wear hair extensions, it’s best to consult a hairstylist at Hair Extensions of Houston before signing up for any hair treatments or using any hair care products.

You do your part by using hair masks regularly, taking breaks from heat styling, and extending the time between hair coloring appointments. Yet, your hair dares to lack moisture, luster, and density?! It’s time to sneak a peek into the real culprits of hair damage to work towards a solution.

Split Ends

Hair strands tend to split, making the hair rough and weak. Because hair with split ends tends to have two or more heads, it often tangles. An easy way to banish split ends is to trim your hair every two to three months.

Hair Loss or Thinning

First things first, the two terms mentioned above aren’t the same. Hair loss is the noticeable increase in hair shedding, while hair thinning is wider partings and more scalp showing. Both of these issues can be triggered due to many different reasons; for this reason, it’s best to head to a dermatologist who can analyze the condition of the follicles to determine a reason.

Color Damage

If you want to grow out of color damage, you will have to wait to get rid of the bleach and color!

Consulting a professional hair colorist before coloring your hair minimizes the damage caused to the hair strands due to artificial coloring or bleaching. This is because they place the integrity of your hair first and suggest the proper use of color chemicals. Often, hair colorists also recommend color-safe products for aftercare to counter the loss of moisture and prevent color fading.

Chemical Treatments Damage

Unfortunately, the damage done by chemical treatments, such as perms and relaxers, can seldom be healed or fixed. They tend to strip the hair, making it prone to breakage. If you’ve already been there and done that, your best defense for preventing further hair damage is to increase the supply of nourishment to the hair roots and shafts.

If you bleach or color your hair, you must wait for it to grow out of your hair to permanently remove the damage.
