The streamers have settled on the ground and the Christmas trees have been moved to the curb – party season is officially over! Now what? Now it’s time to take care of yourself as you start the new year with a BANG! In our world, this self-care extends to your hair.
Hair recovery after the festive season is no joke. From indoor heating and smoke to overindulging in party food and replacing water with champagne, we can safely say that your locks have been tired out. They’re in dire need of tender love and care, and we can help!
In this guide, we’ll share advice on how to repair damaged hair. Our team of Rossano Ferretti (RF) pros have put their heads together to share expert tips on how to revive your tresses after a vigorous party season.
Take a break from heat styling
Looking fabulous can take its toll on hair, especially when you use hot styling tools to get “the look”. Once the raucous of the party season has died down, we say – PUT DOWN YOUR TOOLS! This is the best answer to the question “how to repair heat damaged hair?”
Give your hair a break from heat-styling. Hot tools such as curling wands, straighteners, and blow-dryers can leave your hair dry, broken, and vulnerable to harsh elements (think smoke and air pollution).
Allow your locks to air dry naturally as often as possible so that they have a moment to soak up and indulge in the healing products you apply.
Read our article “How to create heatless beach waves” for ideas on how to style your hair without applying heat.
If you simply have to use heat to style your hair, then apply a heat-protective product beforehand – like our Dolce Satin Glow Booster – to reduce damage (and colour loss).
