Styling your dry or damaged hair is often a nightmare! And parties rarely do them any good! How not to damage them further? Protective hairstyle or loose hair: what to choose? So many questions that make the subject a real headache... But not anymore! Madam President takes the bull by the horns and answers all your questions!
Your natural hair: your most beautiful treasure
The basis of the foundation for dry or damaged hair: letting it live its life naturally.
All they ask for: to be accepted. Yes , your straight hair is chic. Yes , your curls make you look angelic. Yes , your afro cut is magnificent. Why torture them with heating products and other devices? 0 heat, 0 straightening/straightening/curling... And 0 petrochemical products! If you want to use it, check your labels: the dryness and brittleness of your hair may be coming from these (false) friends!
In short, opt for natural hair and take care of its texture: it will quickly recover! To style it day after day, you can alternate hairstyles: braids, bun, scarf... All hairstyles are suitable for dry and natural hair provided they are accompanied by a suitable hydration and nutrition routine.
You can even let them breathe by detaching them! Be careful, however: in winter, scarves, coats and other hats rub on the hair and weaken the hair fiber (unless you have the good taste to dress exclusively in silk and satin). The ideal is therefore to keep the “hair in the wind” tip for your less covered outfits!
Do you want to curl or straighten your hair?
We see you eyeing straighteners and curling irons! To turn your dry or damaged hair into fabulous hair, we have found some tips for you to avoid these enemies of the hair fiber.
Straighten your hair without damaging it
For incredibly straight hair, rather than the famous straightening/burning iron, we recommend hot combing, which will not damage your hair. Be careful, it still heats up, so don't forget to feed them with a suitable conditioner and regularly give them nourishing and moisturizing masks. In addition, as you know, curly, frizzy and frizzy hair is particularly fragile and therefore needs to be pampered.
Another tip: the wig. Straight hair as you want, and the color you want, without going through the permanent color box: happiness.
Curl your hair gently
Do you want your straight hair to become a cascade of beautiful, bouncy curls without a curling iron? It's possible ! You will find many tips for larger or smaller curls at MissouMakeup or Laura Millow for example! All without any heat, isn't that magnificent?
For waves worthy of the Little Mermaid, you can also braid your hair and let it set overnight or for a day. Guaranteed effect! In addition, braids are ideal for styling dry and damaged hair: they minimize breakage by limiting friction.
Protective hairstyle: friend of your hair
Slicked back braids (often used as a protective hairstyle for frizzy hair) give your hair time to grow without being exposed to excessive manipulation. Ideal for styling your dry or damaged hair! Bonus: they save you time. Plaid braids are not the kind you take out every day! No more 45 minutes in front of the mirror to do a loose bun.
But be careful, not combing your hair does not mean neglecting your hair! Slicked back braids require as many shampoos, masks and conditioners as loose hair. In a while, when you remove them, you will see great growth... And hair in better shape, which will have taken advantage of its rest to get a new look!
Don't overdo the good things!
However, you should not keep a protective hairstyle for months: 2 to 3 weeks maximum! The duration will depend on your hair type, its porosity and its fineness. The more fragile your hair is, the less you need to extend this hairstyle: it can suffocate the scalp and hair, and exert too much traction, thus increasing hair loss when unstyling. Protect, yes, but not too much!
Whatever the case, taking care of your dry and damaged hair requires hairstyles... And treatments adapted to your porosity and your problem! Don't let the problem drag on: if it has deficiencies, your hair unfortunately cannot fill them without your help! And above all, don't hesitate to cut your ends to help them start growing again.
Don't be afraid to go to great lengths with food supplements either. Resolution N°1 and Hair Boost will stimulate the growth of your hair and slow down its loss. And we don't forget anyone! Pregnant and breastfeeding women can therefore turn with their eyes closed to Mama , prenatal vitamins pimped to do good for their hair.
Finally, men and children are not left out! For them, we created Mr. and Little President . With Madam President, everyone has their own cure!
