Highlights. Ombre. Ombre highlights. Chalking, straightening, bleaching... we put our hair through a lot. And in return, our hair puts us through a roller coaster of emotions. One day it’s perfectly behaved, falling exactly where we want it to: the next day it’s boycotting our head, making us hope that the shaved look one day becomes trendy for women. Then there’s the catch-22 of hairstyling: the more brittle and unruly our hair is, the more we have to tame it with heat and styling products; the more we style our hair, the more brittle we make it; repeat.
Haircare is dramatic, Girls.
It’s time for a quick biology lesson: to start, the hair shaft contains a bunch of teeny tiny layers, like the cuticle, cortex, and medulla. Whenever you color your hair, one of those layers is opened and exposed, which means it’s more vulnerable than normal to heat (from the sun or from tools) and styling.
