Whether it is from heat styling or chemical treatments, dealing with damaged hair can be both frustrating and embarrassing. You want your hair to feel silky, but it instead feels very dry. Although repairing excessive hair damage can take a long time, it does not mean you can't disguise the damage in the process. Here are several ways you can disguise your hair damage.
Get your hair trimmed
Getting at least half an inch trimmed off your hair can really make it look better. Trimming your hair will get rid of some of the split ends, making your hair look healthier and less tangled. Make sure to get your hair trimmed at least every two months.
Condition your hair with olive oil once a week
Olive oil is really amazing for your hair; putting olive on your hair can make it feel softer and look more beautiful. It is definitely my favorite deep conditioner. Just warm up 1/4 cup of olive oil in the microwave and apply it mostly to your ends. Leave it on your hair for 30 minutes and rinse it out with shampoo.
Get a demi-permanent hair color
If your hair is pretty light, you should consider dying it a shade or two darker with a demi-permanent hair color. Coloring your hair darker will make it look healthier and more shiny. A demi-permanent hair color does not contain any ammonia, so it will not damage your hair.
Apply a shine serum to you hair
A little shine serum can really make it look like you have healthy hair. It can disguise dryness, add shine and tame frizz. After you get done washing your hair, apply shine serum to just the ends of your hair. Applying too much of this product can weigh down your hair, especially if it is thin.
Following these tips can really help mask hair damage while you are in the process of repairing your hair. As you are repairing your hair, be sure to stay away from heat styling tools and chemical treatments because they can make your hair even worse.More from Katya Gordeeva:
