Already the lockdown is taking its toll on our hair. All over tiktok there have been numerous trends of people giving themselves DIY haircuts and dye jobs. Sometimes at home salon treatments turn out beautifully, other times they can be a bit of a disaster but one thing that is always going to be completely fool proof is the moisturising treatments that help us to maintain our hair’s natural shine.
How I’m Saving My Damaged Hair
I don’t know about you but my hair has certainly been through a lot over the past year. Between bleaching it twice, toning, straightening, and blow drying on a regular basis I’m not stranger to split ends, breakage and dullness.
Ever since I bleached, balayaged and highlighted my hair one year ago, the thickness and softness has never been the same. I honestly am convinced that colourists are lying when they tell you that the work they do doesn’t damage your hair because mine has been drying gout and shedding like crazy ever since I highlighted it. It’s terrible now how empty I feel whenever I run my fingers through my hair sleek and shiny hair because the thickness is just not there anymore and each time I so much as touch my hair I end up yanking out massive clumps of it.
You shouldn’t get me wrong however, shedding is completely normal especially in the warmer months but dryness and extreme breakage on the other hand is a sign of chemical/heat damage. That is exactly why I’ve really stepped up my haircare routine lately with the goal of restoring my dead ends back to the long, luscious locks that they once were.
For this post I’m sharing my haircare regime with you guys in the hopes that it will help you too if you’re experiencing haircare woes in the same way that I am.
