Does your hair feel stretchy? Are the strands looking limp and lifeless, too? You might be wondering what is it about your hair that makes it look unhealthy, but these are common indicators of any of the following: 1) your hair might be over processed from chemical treatments, 2) or it lacks protein. Either way, there is a way for you to revive your hair and make it look healthy again.
Now that you have determined what might have caused your hair to look limp and be stretchy, the next step is to fix the problem. The simplest method to restore your hair is to use a protein based conditioner. Make sure you use a good one to ensure that your efforts pay off!
A weekly or bi-weekly deep conditioning treatment is what your hair needs. This guarantees that the treatment will be absorbed deep into the hair structure fortifying it from within so your hair will look vibrant instead of limp. For the other days, make sure you use a good conditioner, detangler, or rinse.
When you are conditioning hair, always follow the instructions written on the label. Also, try to regulate your use of conditioners because over-conditioning your locks can also have its setbacks. This will weigh your hair further causing it to look limp while the excess protein can cause locks to become overly dry.
Use a clarifying product on hair every two weeks. This will help to eliminate any excess product buildup or residues from environmental pollutants that can also be damaging to hair over time.
A final word of warning: those who have coloured or chemically treated hair should check into the conditioning product to determine if it is good to use on these kinds of hair. This will help prevent any damaging effects from the chemical reaction or lose the colour or effects of the chemical process.
