Our hair is not immune to damage. While some of us are blessed with thick and voluminous hair, others suffer from weak or super dry hair that is prone to breakage. Besides the natural conditions of our hair, applying heated and styling tools, hair dyes, or bleach on our hair can also cause a significant amount of damage to our hair.
In this article, we cover the different types of hair damage issues and the best hair care solutions you can include in your hair care routine to revive your hair!
What are some common hair damage issues?
Even if you do not style your hair frequently, there are many external factors in our surroundings that potentially hurt our hair. For instance, intense sunlight, humidity, winds, and cold air can all negatively impact your hair, even towns water supply, through the use of chemicals infused to clean the water.
The Iles Formula Signature Collection protects your hair against any environmental assault and optimizes your hair condition with sulfate-free, silicone-free, and paraben-free ingredients. It’s the perfect 3-step-system you need for a simple yet high-performance and nurturing hair routine.
Furthermore, using hair curlers, flat irons, or blow dryers can result in various degrees of damage to your hair. High temperatures can potentially harm your hair because heat will strip water molecules and natural oils from your hair and cause the keratin proteins in your hair to become altered. Combined with a loss of hydration and a change of the hair’s innate chemical structure, hair that has been damaged by heat appears dry, rough, and lusterless.
Other than the heat, bleaches or hair dyes also have harmful effects on your hair. To achieve a lighter shade of hair color, one needs to bleach one’s hair first. Bleach, on the one hand, is a substance that breaks into your hair shaft to destabilize pigment molecules and to fragment these stable molecules into smaller components that be washed off from your hair. This can be detrimental to your hair health since, in the process, the fatty acids that originally existed to protect and strengthen your hair get destroyed and removed from your hair as well. This damage is irreversible, and your hair will practically lose its liveliness.
Hair dyes, on the other hand, usually contain harmful chemicals such as peroxides and ammonia, which explains why they give out a pungent smell when applied to the hair. Permanent hair dyes are known for their penetrative effects, and in some cases, certain chemicals in hair dyes, including para-phenylenediamine, can even result in hair loss.
For all types of damaged haircare, we would recommend investing in high-performance haircare like Iles Formula as these formulas cater to ALL hair types. The more damaged the hair the more phenomenal the performance. The repair is instant from the very first use.
