Dr Oz: Hair Damage Prevention Tips
Dr Oz was joined by Jennifer Goldstein, Prevention Magazine’s Beauty Editor, who said that people damage their hair every single day without even knowing it. Main culprits include styling products that give off excessive heat; another way we damage our hair is by not trimming the dead, split ends on a regular basis. Also, the more you process your hair with dyes and shampoo, the more damage you may be doing to your hair.
Dr Oz and Jennifer did a sponge experiment to demonstrate their point. Three sponges were used to represent the oil our hair contains at the ages of 30, 40, and 50. An audience member squeezed the contents of the first sponge (30- year-old hair) into a dish and a lot of oil fell out. Then the audience member squeezed the second sponge (40-year-old hair) and some oil fell out. When the audience member squeezed the third sponge, (50-year-old hair), barely any oils fell out. This demonstrated that as we get older, hair tends to dry out, giving it a lifeless, dull appearance.
Dr Oz: Damaged Hair Remedies
To keep hair from looking dull and dry, Jennifer Goldstein recommended that you not wash your hair every day. It is not necessary and frequent washing strips your hair of the natural oils. You should also never flat-iron your hair on a daily basis (one to two times per week is okay). I loved it when Jennifer, the Beauty Editor, injected that, notwithstanding the best practice, she in fact uses a flat-iron every day. I guess the tip was meant for everyone else! Jennifer also recommended a few hair products to keep your locks strong and healthy, which are as follows:
Dr Oz: Caviar Anti-Aging Shampoo
Caviar Anti-Aging Shampoo is a moisturizing shampoo that should be used in place of regular shampoo.
Dr Oz: Josie Maran’s Argan Oil Hair Serum
Josie Maran’s Argan Oil Hair Serum is a product that protects the hair from excessive heat that comes from blow drying and flat-ironing.
Dr Oz: Redken Time Reset Corrective Defense
Redken’s Time Reset Corrective Defense is a leave- in treatment to protect the hair.
Dr Oz: Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition
Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition is a triple protection conditioner that may be used after every washing.
