Heat Damage

Heat is one of the most essential hair styling tools used. In our quest to make our hair beautiful we often don’t realize the damage we are causing. Heat damage can be your worst enemy. Before you give me the side eye, I know you love it when your hair looks great. We love that feeling too!

Having hair that turns heads for all the right reasons sure does make us feel great. That’s why we invest so much of our time into blow drying our hair perfectly. Often we use our trusty flatirons to create that beloved ‘just out of the salon‘ look.

But ladies, there’s one thing we know all too well about daily styling. It can create that hated heat damage! Seeing your lush hair turn into dry, brittle strands is heart wrenching. Quite frankly, it can freak you out. In fact, verging on hysteria is often a truer reflection of what is going on inside your mind!

Before you start to wallow in your damaged hair misery, let’s get one thing straight. Where there is a problem there is almost always a solution. Heat damage to your hair is no exception to that rule.

Who knows, you might one moment have your eyes on the screen as you read our blog and the next minute you’re gazing at your ‘has definitely looked better‘ hair. Don’t worry, we’re going to let you know what to do to transform your hair. Before long, you’ll fall in love with your healthy hair again.

What are we talking about? How do you get healthy hair after experiencing heat damage?

Nature’s remedy is hair oil. It is designed to give your hair what it so desperately needs. We know you are obsessed with your hair, the good thing is Obsessed Hair Oil shares your passion! This type of hair therapy could be the best thing that has ever happened to you. But first, let’s understand what the signs and symptoms are of heat damage.

  • Dull Hair: We all have days when our hair is not as shiny as we would like it to be. However, if your hair appears dull and lackluster for several days, your hair might be damaged due to heat.
  • Lack of Moisture: Water is essential to healthy hair. If you hair is lacking moisture, this can be a sign of damaged hair. You might want to try water only hair washing, a heat steamer and knocking back plenty of water as it is good for your.
  • Rough, Fried Hair: Run your fingers through a strand of your hair. Does it feel rough or smooth down the length of your hair? If you observe a difference in texture from one strand to next your hair may be damaged. You might want to start using leave in conditioner.
  • Split Ends: When you look at your hair strands and they are splitting into two, maybe even three you have split ends. One of the biggest reasons for this is heat damage.

Nature Knows How To Heal Heat Damage

These days our daily lives are bombarded with harsh chemicals and toxins (read more about chemophobia). The last thing we want to do is force our hair to join the party. Oil as a moisturizer is crammed with the goodness of nature. It knows how to heal our hair from the inside out. Let’s take a look at a few of nature’s goodies.

Hair oil can solve a lot of your problems. However, before I explain why essential oils are so great, I am going to give you five pointers on reversing heat damage.

  1. Get rid of your flat iron and blow dryer temporarily.
  2. Eat foods packed with protein and give yourself protein treatments.
  3. Drink lots of water. Spray your hair with water mixed with Obsessed Hair Oil for moisture.
  4. Styling products can make your hair dry due to buildup, so use clarifying shampoo.
  5. Cut the heat damaged ends off. If you are not comfortable cutting your own hair, have a hair stylist do it for you. Remember, whenever your hair is extremely damaged, it cannot be reversed without a trim. When your ends aren’t trimmed, the damage will travel up your hair shaft and make matters worse.

Now that we have that out of way be sure to keep your hair hydrated and moisturized with Obsessed Hair Oil. It is full of all natural ingredients that are great for your hair. Let’s take a closer look at what I mean.

Joyous Jojoba Oil SAYS NO TO Heat Damage

Manufacturers only started adding Jojoba Oil to cosmetics in the 1970s. People ‘in the know‘ have been benefitting from this natural plant for much longer. This oil is crammed with vitamins and minerals that your hair will love. Vitamin E, Vitamin C, B vitamins, as well as copper and zinc are all found in Jojoba Oil. In fact, it has the ability to moisturize your scalp. We all know what grows from the scalp – our precious hair.

Jojoba Oil and your hair could certainly be lifelong BFFs, if you let them. In fact, since the oil moisturizes your hair follicles, it works to prevent dryness. If you have heat damage, run your hands through your hair and you’ll know exactly what dry hair feels like. In fact, did you know that dry hair can lead to hair loss? That’s right, if your hair is suffering from heat damage there is no time to delay. Give your tresses exactly what it needs to thrive again.

Regal Rosemary Oil Fights Heat Damage

Do you love to cook with rosemary? It sure is able to liven up a humble chicken dish into something rather exotic. It’s not just your taste buds that can benefit from Rosemary, so can that dry hair of yours! In fact, the word ‘rosemary’ comes from the Latin meaning ‘dew of the sea.’ Doesn’t the meaning conjure up ideas of your hair being drenched in goodness? Rosemary Oil has healing properties, which your hair is going to really love you for.

Other oils may give your hair more of a conditioning effect. Rosemary Oil can heal your scalp as well as your hair in a rather magical way. Sure your big issue is the damage your hair is dealing with thanks to heat. However, Rosemary will do more than tackle that problem alone.

So, what else can it do? Glad you asked! It also could:

  • Increase your hair fullness
  • Help your hair to grow more quickly
  • Prevent premature greying

I would say this is something that all of us ladies are always on the lookout for.

Did you know that Rosemary Oil is also packed to the brim with antioxidants? We all know that antioxidants are a ‘happy word’ for our body. Carnosol, one of the antioxidants found in Rosemary, is nearly as potent as eating goji berries. That’s right, your hair and scalp are sure to adore Rosemary Oil just as much as you will.

Precious Peppermint Oil KO’s Heat Damage

The peppermint plant is a cross between spearmint and watermint. You likely already know that peppermint is known for having calming and soothing properties. What you may not know is that it is used to cure countless illnesses as well. Indeed, Peppermint Oil sure is one of the incredible goodies that we find in nature.

So how about your hair, could this oil really make a difference?

It sure could. In fact, it’s recognized the world over as having great benefit as a hair treatment. I’m not recommending that you pour Peppermint Oil on your scalp and wait for the magic to happen. Why? This oil is strong and when used directly it can be too irritating to your scalp.

It is most beneficial when mixed with the right blend of other essential oils, like Jojoba Oil and Rosemary Oil, which you will find in Obsessed Hair Oil.

What can your hair hope for if you introduce it to this oil?

Having a dry scalp is not fun. You may have noticed that having heat damage and a dry scalp can go hand-in-hand. It’s time to break that friendship up once and for all. Peppermint has the ability to make your scalp less dry. It balances oil production, so you won’t end up with a big greasy mess on your head.

As I mentioned, when used in the right mixture, essential oils for hair growth can stimulate your hair follicles. Your hair can grow to its full potential. Your hair will benefit from increased nutrients thanks to the increased blood circulation and oxygen supply to your scalp.

Life May Not Always Be Perfect, But Your Hair Can

We’re not telling you to get rid of your hair dryer, straighteners and other hair tools that uses heat. After all, we wouldn’t tell you to do something that we wouldn’t be willing to do ourselves. We know you want your hair to look amazing. And for most of us, that takes styling and products. But, come on, you’ve got to give your hair something to combat it with.

Joyous Jojoba Oil is crammed with vitamins and minerals that can help your hair to be well-armored in the battle against heat damage. Regal Rosemary Oil or ‘the dew of the sea‘ knows how to drench your hair in healing goodness. Precious Peppermint Oil can get oil production as well as dry scalp issues in check.

We know that your life may not always be perfect, but your hair sure can be. Whatever you do, don’t let heat damage get the upper hand!
