How to Prevent and Repair Damaged Hair

As much as I love my hair dryer and curling iron, I can’t deny that they damage my hair. After prolonged use, the ends of my hair look/feel dry and my hair has an overall dull appearance. Combine heat styling with environmental and lifestyle factors and we’re talking about some seriously damaged hair! Enter Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Ultimate Repair!
Hair loses Keratin over time. Gliss is formulated with Hair-Identical Keratin to replace the lost Keratin. This strengthens your hair and creates a smoother surface. The patented technology repairs up to 10 layers deep!
Gliss Ultimate Repair Shampoo and Conditioner won the Allure Best of Beauty Award for best shampoo and conditioner for damaged hair, so you know it’s good! Ultimate Repair is designed to be used daily for beautifully stronger and smoother hair.

How to Prevent and Repair Damaged Hair

Between washing, coloring, heat styling, brushing and product buildup, our hair goes through a lot! Here are some small changes you can make that will prevent damage to hair:

How to Prevent Damage to Hair
Use a deep conditioner
Using a deep conditioner once a week is an important step, especially if you have dry/damaged/color treated hair. Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Ultimate Repair Anti-Damage Mask provides deep reconstruction of hair structure with Keratin and gives you up to 90% stronger hair.
I apply the The Ultimate Repair Anti-Damage Mask to my hair from the ears down. It makes my hair so soft and shiny. It also really cuts down on frizz!
Allow some air dry time before blow drying

After showering, blot your hair dry with a towel. Let hair air dry until it is 75% dry and then finish with a hair dryer. Not only does this make this blow drying progress faster, it’s less damaging to your hair because it’s exposed to heat for a shorter period of time.

Switch your pillowcase

This is a small change that can make a big difference! Hair slips over silk and drags over cotton, so using a silk pillowcase cuts down on breakage and frizz. It also cuts down on knots and bedhead. An added bonus? Silk pillowcases are also better for your skin.

Don’t over-wash

Washing your hair too often strips away the natural oils and can make it dry. Depending on the length/thickness, it’s recommended to wash every 2-3 days.

I wash my hair every 2 days and I use a dry shampoo on the in-between days.

Don’t use too much heat

Many curling irons and hair straighteners have temperature settings that go above 400 degrees.

Don’t wear the same hairstyle everyday

Tight hairstyles like ponytails, buns and braids damage you hair because they pull at the scalp. It’s best to give you hair a breather and leave it down. If you must put it back a loose low ponytail is best.

Don’t brush wet hair

Wet hair is much more fragile than dry hair, so it has to be treated carefully. Brush hair out before you shower to remove any tangles. Once hair is wet it’s best to use a wide-tooth comb.

Avoid salt/chlorinated water

This one can be hard to follow, especially if your summers are spent in the water. Before going into the pool or ocean I always put my hair in a high topknot and make sure that I don’t dunk my head.
