Damaged hair

Hair damage happens when friction, heat, and harsh chemical treatments attack your hair’s protective outer layer, or “cuticle,” and create cracks on the outside. When the outer part is cracked, the cuticle stretches or opens, causing dullness, dryness, frizziness, and brittleness, making hair prone to damage and breakage. This process will continue if you do not think to treat your damaged hair.

Damaged hair problems

Damaged hair can cause many problems, the most obvious of which is hair loss. Before dealing with the most effective methods of treating damaged hair, we have a brief look at the types of damaged hair.

Damaged hair types:

  • Cloudiness and dryness

Damaged hair is deprived of natural oils on the outer layer of the hair. The absence of oil on the hair causes it to lose its shine. Chemical shampoos whose harmful ingredients are not controlled can strip your scalp and hair of their natural oils. Therefore, washing your hair less and using shampoos suitable for your hair type is better.

Damaged Hair and treatment
  • Hair tangled and knotted.

Damaged hair can be prone to tangling. Raised cuticles create friction between hair strands and cause them to tangle. Lack of moisture in the hair can also aggravate this situation. If you have this problem, remember to use a wide tooth comb. Comb your hair from the bottom so as not to put pressure on the roots.

  • hair blowing

When the cuticle is not smooth and in its natural state, it can cause frizz. Frizz can appear in all parts of the hair. Air humidity and damaged hair cause frizz.

  • fragility

In addition to the above problems, the lack of moisture and fat in the hair structure can cause hair brittleness. Especially if you suffer from frizz, your hair becomes thin and fragile, and sometimes you see a piece cut off.

Causes of hair damage

There are many reasons for hair damage, and your damaged hair can result from one or more of them. In this section, we explain these reasons.

  • Heat tools for hair styling

Heat during hair styling, such as straightening, curling, or blow drying, can open the hair cuticle and make the hair porous and brittle. What you should do is blow dry your hair from a further distance. Before using heat tools, use a hair protection serum or cream against heat. Also, ensure you towel dry your hair well before styling it.

  • to dechlorinate

The act of removing the natural color of hair is called bleaching. Dechlorinating material oxidizes hair pigments or melanin and, in this way, causes the hair to become discolored. Because chlorine is a chemical substance, it changes the structure of the hair; even if it is done correctly and in principle, it still damages the hair. After bleaching, the hair becomes dry and frizzy and turns into damaged hair.

(In the article “White Hair In Women / Third-Millennium Findings” We have discussed in detail the causes of white hair and its solutions in women.)

Heat tools for hair styling
  • coloring

Dyeing is another negative factor for hair. Dyes, like bleaching agents, are chemicals that sit on your hair for a long time and absorb moisture from your hair. By coloring, your hair will become dry and brittle. After dyeing, be sure to use special shampoos for dyed hair.

  • Sunlight and pool chlorine

If you are a person who likes sunbathing and swimming, we must tell you that exposure to sunlight for a long time, as well as chlorine and disinfectants in pool water, can damage your hair. Use a hat or handkerchief when under the sun, and do not neglect a unique hat for swimming.

  • Improper washing

Another reason for damaged hair is improper and wrong washing in the bathroom. If you pour the shampoo directly on your head and wash your hair shaft, you gather them up and pull them to other parts of the hair; we must say that you are damaging your hair with your hands. The concentration of the shampoo alone is too much for the hair, and you need to dilute it and apply it to the hair before using it. The friction created between the different parts of the hair when you wash it wrong will cause the hair to become brittle, and eventually, you will have damaged hair.

 For basic hair washing, first massage and wash the hair roots, and for the lower parts and the stem, take each part in the form of a rope and press gently and repeat this process for each part. Alternatively, put your hair between your hands and pull your hands towards the ends of your hair.

Hair coloring
  • Excessive hair makeup

Styling the hair excessively with hair dryers, hair irons or curling irons, and other thermal tools can damage, weaken, and make the hair brittle. Using many heat tools on your hair will quickly damage your hair.

  • Sleeping with open hair

Your relaxed hair is pulled on the pillow surface with every movement during sleep, and this friction damages your hair. To treat your damaged hair, if you have long hair, braid it before going to sleep, and if you have short hair, use sleeping caps. Using a silk pillowcase will also help reduce this damage.

  • Vitamin deficiency

Another reason that may cause hair damage is the lack of vitamins and minerals in the body. Our hair needs various vitamins for its health; without one or more, it gets out of balance and damaged.

vitamins for healthy hair

Damaged hair treatment methods:

  • drink water

Drink between 8 and 10 glasses of water daily to treat damaged hair. Water is a healthy drink full of properties for the body that should not be neglected. Water is beneficial for the health of the body, such as the digestive system, skin, and hair. Lack of water causes dehydration of the hair tissue, resulting in dryness and brittleness. Drinking enough water will give you healthy, shiny, and fresh hair.

  •   Medicine Treatment of damaged hair

One of the methods of treating damaged hair is medical treatments such as PRP and mesotherapy. PRP is one of the minimally invasive treatment methods. This method treats damaged hair, hair loss, sports, and inflammatory injuries. In this method, they take blood from your arm and put it in a machine where a particular process is done. Then they inject blood into your head. However, mesotherapy is the injection of vitamins and nutrients into the scalp, gradually strengthening your hair. For damaged hair healing with these methods, consult a specialist doctor.

  • Vitamin therapy to repair damaged hair

As you know, we need some vitamins and minerals to have shiny, shiny, and healthy hair. The most important are vitamin A, vitamin C, biotin, and iron.

Many people start taking supplements to get these vitamins. It is worth mentioning that according to recent research, marine protein supplements are the best way to damaged hair restoration.( In that regard the article “Supplements For Hair Loss In Men” would be useful )

  • Adding omega-3 and antioxidants to the diet

  Marine proteins make hair strong and shiny, repair damaged hair and treatment of damaged hair.

The following foods are rich in omega-3s:

  1. Salmon fish
  2. tuna fish
  3. Oyster
  4. mackerel fish
  5. Sardine

The following foods are rich in antioxidants:

  1. walnut
  2. Red beans
  3. blueberry
  4. broccoli
  5. tomato

It would help to have healthy fats, like canola oil, for healthy, shiny hair. 

Omega 3

  Hair hydration

  • Remember the softener!

The shampoo is formulated to clean the hair, and the conditioner to hydrate, condition, and shine. Using a conditioner after washing the hair with shampoo is better for treating damaged hair.

After washing, use a hair oil or serum.

After hair drying, an oil or hair serum prevents hair from frizzing, protects them from environmental factors, and also causes damaged hair restoration.

  • Oil therapy

If you are interested in the natural treatment of damaged hair, you can use nourishing and beneficial oils for hair. Oils such as argan, avocado, coconut and olive suit this.

  • Massage your scalp

Massage increases blood circulation in the scalp and helps hair growth and damaged hair healing. So get used to massaging your scalp every day. For this, put your fingers on your head and gently rub it using circular movements. This also helps to reduce stress and headaches.

Massage your scalp
  • Use natural products

The ingredients in your shampoo or conditioner may worsen your hair instead of helping it. Use shampoos and conditioners that nourish your hair with natural ingredients instead of over-cleansing and damaging your hair.

Look for a sulfate-free shampoo. Sulfates are strong cleansers and are not suitable for damaged hair at all.

Use silicone-free conditioners. The silicones make hair look shiny and smooth, but over time, they build up on the hair, making it look limp and dull.

  • Cut your hair regularly.

If, with all your efforts to heal your damaged hair, you still did not get the desired result, or the hair was so fragile and damaged that it could not be treated by any method, the only solution is to cut your hair. Shorten with healthy and new hair growth, repair old hair, and treat damaged hair. Cutting your hair will eliminate split ends and give your hair a fresh look.
