Brittle, burned or damaged hair? Find out the most common causes and the best solutions to repair them

Table of Contents

Brittle, burned or damaged hair? Unfortunately, it can happen very often to find themselves in these situations compromising their beauty and health.

Many people often dream of having perfect hair like that seen in the pictures, thinking that any hairdresser can reproduce the look and get the same exact color. Over the years, we have met many desperate women and girls seeking help with the words“I need a miracle” or “please help me.”

When we founded our salon, the main goal was to help women maintain beautiful and healthy hair, but we never imagined that we would have such extreme demands, as if we were a kind of hair first aid station.

Most clients who enter our salon say phrases such as: -“They have ruined my hair, can you help me?” -“I just came out of the hair salon and I don’t like the result.” -“After years of highlights, my hair is destroyed.” -“I wish I had hair like when I was 15 years old.”

Often these people keep jumping from one hairdresser to another, spending large amounts of money and continuing to ruin their hair. We want to be honest: we do not perform miracles, but we rely on our in-depth knowledge of hair biochemistry and our years of experience in the field.

If you follow our advice with confidence, both in the salon and in home hair care, your hair will return as shiny, smooth and beautiful as it once was. Patience and proper care are the key to achieving the desired results.

Causes of brittle, damaged or damaged hair

There are many different causes of brittle, damaged or damaged hair. Some of the most common include:

  1. Use of harsh chemicals: styling products, hair dyes, harsh shampoos and other hair products containing harsh chemicals can damage hair and make it brittle and brittle.
  2. Exposure to heat: Frequent use of hair dryers, hair straighteners and other high-heat styling tools can cause hair to break and dry out.
  3. Air pollution: air pollution can have a negative impact on hair health. Pollutant particles can settle on the hair, making it dull and weak.
  4. Poor nutrition: a diet low in nutrients can have a negative impact on hair health. Lack of important vitamins and minerals can cause them to become dry and brittle.
  5. Stress: stress can affect hair health. Chronic stress can cause hair loss and make it weaker and more brittle.

6 wrong things done by the hairdresser that ruin your hair

Many people face problems with damaged hair, brittle and burned hair…but are often unaware of the root causes of the problem. Here are six reasons why your hair may be damaged:

  1. Too frequent bleaching: If you used to bleach your hair often, your scalp and hair may have been damaged beyond repair. Bleaching can weaken the structure of hair and make it brittle and brittle.
  2. Adherence to the application time: the application time of chemical products on the hair is extremely important. If the hairdresser did not follow the recommended setting times, your hair may be damaged. Also, if you leave the product on the hair for too long, the hair may be burned and damaged.
  3. High-volume oxygens: using high-volume oxygens to lighten hair faster can be an attractive option, but it can also cause permanent damage to the hair. Using chemicals that are too harsh can weaken hair and cause breakage.
  4. Plex-based products: plex-based products are specially created to protect hair during chemical treatments. If your hairdresser did not use Plex-based products during bleaching, your hair may have been damaged beyond repair.
  5. Hair test: before proceeding with any chemical treatment, it is important for your hairdresser to assess the quality of your hair. If your hairdresser did not do a lock test before proceeding with the bleaching, your hair may have been damaged.Contact us to schedule a consultation.
  6. Keratin after bleaching: If you did a keratin treatment right after bleaching, it may have caused further damage to your hair. Keratin is a treatment that can make hair smoother and shinier, but if the hair has been damaged by bleaching, it may not be able to withstand further chemical treatment.

In general, it is important to have a good understanding of one’s hair and its structure, as well as to rely on experienced professionals and use high-quality products to keep hair healthy and strong. Prevention is always the key to avoiding hair damage and achieving satisfactory long-term results.

How to prevent hair damage caused by high heat styling tools

Frequent use of high-heat styling tools, such as hair straighteners, blow dryers or curling irons, can cause damage to the hair, making it dry, brittle and damaged. However, there are some precautions you can take to prevent this damage and keep your hair healthy and strong.

  1. Use a protective spray: before using your flat iron, hair dryer or curling iron, spray your hair with a protective spray that will protect it from heat and prevent damage. Which one is the best? Find out here.
  2. Use the right temperature: each styling tool has an adjustable temperature. Be sure to use the right temperature for your hair type. In general, fine and delicate hair requires a lower temperature than thick and strong hair.

  4. Take care of your hair: keeping your hair healthy and moisturized is the best prevention against heat damage. Use moisturizing and nourishing products regularly, and remember not to expose your hair to overly harsh heat sources, such as water that is too hot in the shower.
