Ask Mischo Beauty…
I’m starting a new series on the blog where I’m inviting readers to send me their beauty questions. If you follow me on Twitter, then you know that the invitation already exists there (I tweet it daily!) and so naturally it should exist here as well. And so this week’s question comes from a follower on Twitter, who says:
“My hair is damaged really bad from all the times I bleached and dyed it. What can I use on it?”
Well I’d first suggest stepping away from the bleach and haircolor. Your hair needs a serious break! A series of deep conditioning protein treatments, along with very special care and attention, should have your hair back to health in no time. In case you didn’t know, hair is 91% protein (which is it’s foundation) and so protein conditioning treatments will help to rebuild and strengthen the hair’s structure. When using a protein treatment, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s directions – overuse could result in breakage. A few of my favorite protein treatments include:
Also, be sure to follow the protein treatments with a moisturizing conditioner – your hair will appreciate all the hydration it can get! When your hair is back to health, trade the protein treatments in for moisturizing treatments and establish a healthy haircare regimen. Oh, and I’d suggest staying away from heat styling (flat irons, curling irons, blow dryers, etc.) for as long as you’re able. I hope this helps. Please stop back by and let us know how it’s going! Love your hair.
