The first mistake people often make with hair care treatment is over-styling by applying too much heat or too much product. Straighteners and curling irons weaken your hair, causing breakage and split ends. Excess product can weigh hair down, making it look dirty and greasy and thus causing us to wash more frequently, leading to dry and brittle strands.

To achieve a more natural look, try techniques that are less stressful on your hair, such as rollers or blow drying at a low to medium heat setting.  These techniques will facilitate a healthy recovery, leaving your hair looking stronger and silkier. Fortifying treatments can also be used to expedite the process, as it is important to moisturize your hair just as you do your skin! Use a leave-in conditioner like Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge Moisture-Wip Leave-In Conditioner to make sure your hair receives the hydration it needs. You can also apply a heat protector before styling, such as the Tresemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray to prevent hair from future damage.

Be on the lookout next year for our Revitalizing Scalp Treatment which is designed to open hair follicles and promote hair growth!
