Often take a shower before work and find yourself frantically tugging at your wet tresses with a paddle brush? We don’t blame you, you probably don’t realise the permanent damage you are causing to your hair.
1..There are tons of “split-end menders” on the market that will magically stick my hair back together.
Once the damage is done, there is no product that can glue it back together, meaning the only way to delete the damage is by a trip to the salon for a trim.
2. Your hair is at its weakest when wet.
Dry hair has a protective coating of natural oils produced by your scalp. Therefore when freshly washed and wet, it is most prone to split ends and breakage.
3. Styling your hair when it’s damp saves time and isn’t bad for your hair
Well obviously this does save minutes on your morning routine, however as (mentioned in point 2) your hair is so delicate when wet, the direct heat can cause serious breakage. You should NEVER try to style wet hair with a straightening or curling iron. After blow drying you should have a good feel around the roots and the ends of your hair with your fingers to ensure the hair is completely dry. Once you’ve confirmed it is dry, blast your hair with the hairdryer on the cool setting for one minute to set the style and give it added shine, then continue with your stylers. It may take a few extra minutes, but it will save your hair from serious damage in the long haul.
4. By using a wide tooth comb or a detangling expert such as the Tangle Teezer on wet hair, you can prevent further damage and not spend your entire life in the salon chair.
A Tangle Teezer has uniquely designed teeth that flex just the right amount to detangle, smooth the hair’s cuticle and protect the inner cortex from damage!
