For thinning and damaged hair you would probably turn to a hair regrowth kit. Usually the best component of hair regrowth products is minoxidil. It is the only FDA approved hair loss treatment. While you are using the kit you would also need to keep in mind some basics of hair care, for ensuring better results.
Color treated hair
How you choose the dye, how you dye your hair – these are some of the things that will affect the condition. Most dyes are safe to use, however, how you use them is the question. Every dye comes with instructions such as how long to leave it on before washing it off. Follow the instructions carefully. Do not leave the dye on your hair for too long before rinsing it off. Choose a colour that is not very different from your usual hair color, so that you do not have to overuse the product to get results.
Straightening and perming
All chemicals used for these processes must be tested to see if they are safe to use on your hair. Apply the product to a small portion of hair and if there are no allergic reactions, rashes, or damage to hair you can apply it to the rest. For straightening hair you would probably use a flat iron. It is recommended that you do not overexpose hair to high temperatures. Avoid using these products too frequently.
Shampooing and conditioning
Are your shampoos and conditioners safe? Do they give the results you expect? Or do they damage your hair? Can you rely on these products for the best hair care? If not you might want to use some other products or switch to safe alopecia products that will help you get the best out of your hair care routine. The hair regrowth kit might contain shampoo and conditioner that are safe for damaged hair, since these products aim to resolve alopecia. These products are free of sulfates, and they also offer protection against environmental factors such as UV damage and the heat of styling products.
Ultraviolet damage protection
As we have already seen, some conditioners and shampoos are able to protect hair from external UV damage. You can do a lot more to keep your hair safe. When you’re going outdoors under sunny conditions, even on a cloudy day, don’t forget to cover your hair either with a hat, or with adequate sunscreen. You’ll also need to reverse the damage that has already been caused to your hair through ultraviolet rays. To do that, you will need to use the right hair loss products. Also, keep your hair hydrated, by using a good quality conditioner, possibly the one that is available with a hair regrowth kit.
Trim hair regularly
Small measures can go a long way in keeping your hair gorgeous and pretty. By trimming the ends, you would be reducing the possibility of split ends. Split ends are not just ruinous for the hair as far as appearance is concerned, if left too long, split ends affect the entire length of hair strands and could lead to alopecia. Also, in order to prevent split ends you would have to brush hair carefully and gently. Do not allow hair to become dry. Dry hair leads to many problems.
Keep hair moisturized
Using a high quality conditioner helps. You would also need to look at styling products that are safe. If possible use a styling product, such as a styling mousse, which contains keratin amino acids. These products will help your hair by moisturizing it. So you can wear your favorite styles without damaging your hair in any way.
