If your hair is fried or suffers from split ends, sun damage, tangles, and broken brittle pieces, it's time to take charge of your hair's health. It's easy to forget that our hair can be very fragile. Exposure to the sun, hair dryers, flat irons, and even daily brushing can take its toll and leave you wishing for a time machine.
1- De-Gunk Your Tresses
The products we use, and even the water we use to remove the products we use, can cause your hair to have a less-than-healthy sheen. Build-up is a serious issue with hair and can cause it to be limp, lifeless, and even cause your ends to split and feel brittle.
Getting this built up gunk off your hair is the first step in repairing damage and having healthier hair. A good clarifying shampoo, a baking soda clarifying treatment, or an apple cider vinegar rinse are great options for removing product build-up, hard water deposits, and mineral build-up on your hair.
How often you need to remove build up really depends on the products you use and the water coming out of your tap. Most people could use a clarifying treatment at least once a month.

2- Protect Your Hair From Sun Exposure
One of the biggest culprits of hair damage, color fade, and brittle ends is sun damage. If you're not protecting your hair from the sun's UV rays, the time to start is now. And even though we are more exposed in the summer, don't forget that the sun shines all year long.
After a long day of sun exposure (trips to the beach, hiking, outdoor sporting activities) it's a good idea to give your hair a nice long hydrating treatment to keep damage at bay and help your hair stay in tip-top condition.
