Around Christmas parties and social events multiply and obviously we like to have nice stylish hair, right?! This last weeks I indulged more than usual in curling may hair just because every girl in this world wants to look like a Victoria's Secret model for one night, or at list try to get close.  I'm perfectly aware that I stressed out my hair a little too much so I planned a heavy-duty hair routine to restore my locks from heat damage..and why not share these tips with you in my blog?!

Here's some rules I followed to reduce heat damage

1-Deep moisturize your locks before using curling wand or flat-iron, use your best conditioner or mask.

2- Use some heat protectorPersonally I like to spry leave in conditioner also straight after  curling my locks to immediately sooth heat damageI use two product: the Anti-Frizz Hair Shine Spry and the Volumizing Spry both from Maternatura an organic italian brand. the Anti-frizz spry covers the hydrating needs that a stressed hair.

3- Keep your hair moisturized day after day. I like to massage my strands with a couple of drops of oil before going to bed to ensure extra moisture and prevent breakage due to dishydration and damage. Since I use a modest quantity they are absorbed overnight and there's no risk of greasy hairMy favourite oils in this case are Brocoli oil (has  marvellous anti-frizz proprieties ) and Pracaxi (light weight but effective).

4- Oiling. Oils are my thing  has you might have noticed!! a couple of hours before washing my hair I like to have a good oil mask to deeply moisturize my hair. My favourite oils of the moments are Vatika oil (coconut oil + ayurvedic herbs) Virgin Coconut oil or Amla oil. I like to massage these oil especially on the final part of my hair were the curling wand may have left some damage.

5- Use delicate shampoosAvoid SLES or SLS and use delicate shampoo to preserve natural hair's oils (which are essential to prevent hair damage or breakage).
