If your hair has consistently been dry for more than 6 + months without a trim and usage of products that promote dry hair ;
It usually means a few things:
-that even with a trim, the hair is permanently damaged from dry hair.
Meaning: even with having a hair regimen of consistent trimming and hydration treatments, the hair will only have to grow and GRADUALLY be cut to the healthy part of the hair. Which grows from the root. This can take approximately 1-2 years depending on how much damage the dry hair has done to the hair shaft.
Also! Split ends run up the hair shaft, when we wait too long to trim our ends; split ends continue to run up the hair shaft and cause breakage and damage to the hair.
How does this happen in the first place?
-Wearing braids or extensions for over 4-6 weeks can cause dehydration of the hair.
-Applying color to dehydrated hair only causes more damage and not to mention; drier hair. No matter how professional the product is, permanent color is a chemical, and chemicals applied to dry hair causes more damage. ESPECIALLY when a client continues to use incorrect products (products that lack hydration or products that have protein) at home between visits to the salon.
Using products that have “protein” do not help or promote hydrated hair. Therefore, if you're experiencing dry hair, using protein will NOT promote hydrated hair.
PROTEIN is for professional use ONLY. Due to the fact that protein is lower than the pH of hair itself, it can seal the dryness of the hair because protein seals the cuticle of the hair. Causing the hair to break or become more dry the more it is improperly used.
FYI: Dry hair BREAKS.
Professional stylists have an eye for when PROTEIN needs to be used in the hair. Therefore, leave the protein to be used by your professional stylists.
