When it comes to curly hair there are a lot of things that can easily damage your hair that may lead to a change in your natural curl pattern. Some of the top causes of damaged tresses is frequent use of heat and harsh chemical treatments. Instead of doing the big chop and starting all over you can repair your hair to restore back to it's natural curl pattern with proper care. Schwarzkopf GLISS® Hair Repair™ products feature a patented Hair-Identical Keratin technology that detects even the smallest damage inside hair cells, repairing damages up to 10 layers deep. Keep reading to find out how you can repair severe hair damage with a few easy steps alongside a simple curly hair style tutorial below.

SHAMPOO AND CONDITION.
First things first, we have to remove any buildup with a good cleansing. The Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Ultimate Repair Shampoo repairs damaged hair by replacing any lost keratin. Our hair naturally loses keratin over time and is further damaged by everyday activities. Weak and damaged hair requires intense repair and patience to recover those curls. After the hair has been stripped clean, the next step is to condition your hair with Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Ultimate Repair Conditioner.

RESTORE.
Since activities like using heat and combing your hair can cause cuticle damage to your ends, it's important to apply an intensive protein treatment at least once or twice a week. As I mentioned earlier, applying too much heat to your hair can actually alter the structure of your curls. With the Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Ultimate Repair Anti-Damage Mask there is potential to help your curls bounce back to normal. When hair is blow dried and flat ironed, moisture leaves the hair. Which is why deep conditioning is a a very important step in getting your hair to return to normal. For maximum results, I recommend to apply the hair mask, cover the treated hair with a plastic shower cap, and either sit under the dryer or wrap around with a warm towel for at least 15-30 minutes for an intense treatment.

PROTECT.
Although excessive heat usage may be my top reason for hair damage there are actually many more factors that come into play such as too much sunlight, swimming at the beach or pool, dyeing your hair, perming or relaxing and the list continues. As seen in the picture tutorial above I braided and twirled my hair and used pretty hair pins to style my hair. Believe it or not but both of these actions can damage my hair. Elastics and hair pins are not the gentlest on your hair. They can snag and cause breakages, especially at the ends of your hair where it’s weaker. Next time spritz the area with Schwarzkopf Fiber Therapy Leave In Conditioner Spray to safely remove the pins or elastics. Obviously you need your hands to style your hair, but after you are done no more touching, too much of it causes breakage as well.

DID YOU KNOW?
You should strongly consider getting yourself a satin pillowcase if you have curly, fragile or damaged hair. Sleeping on a cotton pillowcase can create friction between your hair and the roughness of the pillow leading to hair breakage. Where as a smooth pillowcase will allow the hair to slide right off and won't suck out all of the natural moisture your hair has. But it doesn't stop there. Did you know that you’re often catching your hair underneath the strap when wearing a shoulder bag? I never thought that my stylish cross-body bag was causing split end breakages.

I went natural about 6 years ago, meaning I stopped chemically straightening my hair with a relaxer. As much as I try to go heat-free it's pretty much impossible for me as I always like to switch up my hair styles. There is nothing wrong with using some heat on curly hair, but the rule is to make sure you use a heat or thermal protector to reduce the risk of damage. Remember, it's important to treat injured hair with care. That means more conditioning and moisturizing treatments. Good thing is that The Ultimate Repair Shampoo and Conditioner won the Allure Best of Beauty Award - best shampoo and conditioner for damaged hair.   Even if your hair isn't damaged, the Schwarzkopf GLISS® Hair Repair™ can be used for an everyday solution as well to help maintain clean healthy hair.
