Straight, straighter, straightest, broken?

Posted on: April 13, 2009

Do you love to straighten your hair? I know I do! But could straightening your hair lead to breaking? And I’m talking about (gulp!) big chunks, not just split ends here. (Straightening addicts look away!) yes. But there is hope, don’t throw away your straight iron yet! You can straighten your hair without losing it, but you have to be careful.

Following the tips below will make your hair, healthy, shiny, soft, and most importantly, break free. First of all, don’t straighten (or curl) your hair everyday, the messy look is in, use it to your advantage. Also you should use nourishing conditioners and shampoos, like my favorite, Herbal Essence Hydralicious self targeting condition and shampoo. And even though it sounds kind of gross, don’t shower once a week. If you shower everyday you can strip your hair of essential oils, making it dry, brittle, and giving it a higher chance of breaking.

Lastly, periodically before you take a shower, take some olive oil from the kitchen, rub it between your hands and coat your hair, leave it in for ten minutes and wash thoroughly (it’s like a spa treatment for your hair, without the spa price!) If you follow those tips it will keep your hair strong, straight, and wonderfully attached.
