3 Ways to Protect Your Hair After a Shower
When it comes to hair, we know exactly what it’s like to be caught up in the vicious cycle of damage, treat, rinse, repeat. Luckily, we also know a thing or two about how to minimize wear and tear to keep our hair looking healthy 24/7 (even in harsh winter weather).
Our #1 recommendation? Protection. Preventing damage by protecting your hair is hands-down the cheapest and most effective treatment out there to make your hair look and feel healthier, softer, and smoother, every single day. If you’re looking for tips on how to start protecting your precious strands right away, try these:
- When you step out of the shower, wrap and dry your hair with an old cotton t-shirt instead of a towel. Wet strands are much more fragile and prone to breakage, and the harsh fibers of a towel can be too aggressive. Your hair will air dry with less frizz and stay healthier overall.
- Be mindful about the kind of brush you use on damp hair. The wrong brush (something with too much tension) will stretch the hair and cause breakage. We suggest a Sheila Stotts extension brush to detangle because it doesn’t pull on the hair.
- Always use a heat protectant before styling. We recommend our Hair Oil which has a super-smooth finish, keeps your color from fading and expertly protects hair from heat damage.
Damage already done? Don’t panic, 10 minutes with our Treatment Masque will repair and restore your hair so that you can start over.
