4 Simple Ways You Can Repair Hair Damage and Reduce Breakage

Hair damage and breakage can be a frustrating and persistent problem for many of us. Whether it’s due to heat styling, chemical treatments, or just the natural wear and tear of daily life, damaged hair can lead to split ends, frizz, and dull, lifeless locks. But the good news is that with a few simple changes to your hair care routine, you can repair and strengthen your hair, promoting healthy and beautiful locks.

Here are four ways you can reduce breakage and promote healthy hair growth:

1. Protect Your Hair From Heat

Heat styling tools like flat irons and curling wands can cause serious damage to your hair. The high heat can weaken the hair shaft, leading to breakage and split ends. To protect your hair, use a heat protectant spray before using any hot tools, and limit your use of high-heat styling methods. When you do use heat tools, be sure to keep the heat on a low to medium setting, and never hold the heat in one place for too long. We recommend using the Keune Style Heat Protect Instant Blowout.

2. Use A Deep Conditioning Treatment

Regular deep conditioning treatments can help to hydrate and nourish your hair, reducing breakage and split ends. Look for a deep conditioning treatment that contains ingredients like argan oil, keratin, or hydrolysed proteins, which can help to repair and strengthen the hair shaft. Apply the treatment once a week, and leave it on for at least 15 minutes before rinsing it out. We recommend using the Keune CARE Vital Nutrition mask for the ultimate deep conditioning. 

3. Limit Chemical Treatments

Chemical treatments like colouring and perming can be damaging to your hair, especially if they are done frequently or if the chemicals are not handled correctly. If you do opt for these treatments, make sure to follow up with a deep conditioning treatment to help repair the damage. Chat to your Azz Hair Design colourist at your next appointment for a deep conditioning treatment.

4. Handle Your Hair Gently

Avoid yanking or pulling your hair when brushing or styling, as this can cause breakage. Use a wide-toothed comb or a gentle brush to detangle your hair, and avoid tight hairstyles that can cause tension on the hair shaft. When you’re washing your hair, be sure to use a gentle shampoo and conditioner, and avoid scrubbing your hair too hard, as this can cause breakage.

By following these simple steps, you can repair hair damage and reduce breakage, promoting healthy and strong locks. 

Remember, healthy hair starts with a healthy hair care routine, so be sure to treat your hair with care and love, and you’ll see the results in your beautiful, radiant locks. Happy hair care!
