Heat damage is a problem that most of us face, but one that’s easy to treat with the right products and know how. For some expert tips, we turned to hair stylist Dhiran Mistry (who counts makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes as a client) for his solutions on preventing and healing damaged hair.
First and foremost, it’s important to use quality hair products that are designed for your hair type. This means looking for shampoos, conditioners and masks that are free of harsh chemicals and contain natural ingredients. Avoid sulfates and SLS if you can! It’s also important to make sure you’re not overwashing your hair, as this can strip away natural oils and leave your hair dry and brittle. Instead, try to wash your hair no more than two or three times per week. “You also want to put something in your hair to protect it before using hot tools,” says Mistry “Serums and oils are best. I like Shu Uemera’s Absolute Nourishing Oil and Bumble & Bumble’s Invisible Oil.
When it comes to styling, opt for a tool with adjustable heat settings and try to use the lowest setting possible. “My top tip, don’t use a dryer, straightener or curling iron for too long!,” suggests Mistry. “If you’re trying to create a look—like a curl—and it’s not happening, don’t go over it and over it. Just move on to let it cool and come back later.” For overprocessed or heavily colored hair, Mistry recommends treating it with Olaplex, K18, or an-house salon treatment like David Mallet’s Tokyo treatment.”
Lastly, protect your hair from the sun by wearing a hat or scarf when you’re outdoors, and head to the salon regularly for trims.
