- Dry and Frizzy Hair
If you have dry and frizzy hair, you know how difficult it can be to manage. Your hair might feel brittle, straw-like, or staticky. Fly-aways are also common. Many of us wash our hair with too hot water, which can strip the hair of its natural oils, leaving it too dry. Hot water can damage the hair shaft, causing split ends and breakage. The heat from the blow dryer can also damage hair, especially if you blow dry your hair when it’s very wet. Lastly, you are likely to damage your hair if you use curling irons, straighteners, or blow dryers daily.
First, try washing your hair with cooler water. This helps preserve your hair’s natural oils. Also, use a deep conditioning treatment once or twice a week to hydrate your hair and make it more manageable. Hair products can help tame dry and frizzy hair. Look for products that contain natural oils, such as argan oil or coconut oil. These oils help nourish and protect your hair. You can also use a leave-in conditioner or serum to control dryness and frizz. We recommend you take a break from the heat of blow dryers and other styling tools when you can.
Finally, our Olaplex treatment repairs damage from coloring and heat styling as well as environmental factors that leave your hair brittle and dull. The treatment also locks in color to prevent fading and brassy blondes.
- Oily and Greasy Hair
Oily or greasy hair is a problem for some people, particularly those with fine hair. Your sebaceous glands are responsible for producing oil, and they can be triggered by hormone imbalances, stress, and even diet. When the scalp produces too much oil, it can make the hair look greasy, oily, and flat.
If you have oily hair, you might need to wash your hair more frequently to keep the oil under control. Also, use shampoos and conditioners designed for oily hair. These products help absorb excess oil and leave your hair looking and feeling clean and fresh. You can try using a dry shampoo. Dry shampoo is a powder that absorbs excess oil and leaves the hair looking clean and fresh. It’s a great option for days when you don’t have time to wash your hair.
- Limp and Lifeless Hair
If your hair is lacking volume and body, it might be due to a few factors. First, your hair might be too clean. If you wash your hair every day, you can strip it of its natural oils, leaving your hair looking flat and lifeless. Another common cause of limp and lifeless hair is damage. If your hair is damaged, it might be weakened and lacking in elasticity so it’s difficult to style your hair and add volume.
For limp and lifeless hair, try washing your hair every other day instead of every day. This adds volume and body to your hair by retaining its natural oils. Also, look for volumizing shampoos and conditioners. You can try using a root lift spray or mousse. These products can help add volume and body to your hair, making it easier to style.
- Split Ends
Split ends are a common problem for people with long hair. When the ends of your hair become frayed and split, it can make your hair look unhealthy and damaged. One common cause of split ends is heat damage. If you use heat-styling tools regularly, you are likely damaging your hair. Another common cause is chemical damage from having your hair colored or chemically straightened.
Cut back on heat-styling. If you must use heat-styling tools, be sure to use a heat protectant spray to protect your hair from damage. Look for deep conditioning treatments and leave-in conditioners. By hydrating and nourishing your hair with these products, you can make it more manageable.
A fresh haircut can also get rid of your split ends, so be sure to get one regularly. Lastly, our Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment keeps your hair smooth and free of split ends for up to 12 weeks.
