What Happens When You Heat Style or Chemically Treat Your Hair Too Often?

One of my friends loves to play with her hair colour. Some days her hair would be fiery red, some days blond with strikes of green, and when she gets bored, she is back to black. She also likes to style it often, wavy for summers, noodles curls in winters, and whatnot; and when it comes to attending a party, she goes all out by getting a perm and styling her hair the most fashionable way possible.

Then with all the fun, came the drama when her hair started to get dry, frizzy, and damaged. And now, she wants her old, healthy shiny hair back.

Here, you would agree that this is the story of most of us, who like to style our hair. Isn’t it? Before, you look for the solution, have you ever wondered why this happens? Allow me to explain, as for that you need to understand your hair first.

“95% of our hair is made of Keratin (protein), which is composed of three layers, - Medulla (the core), Cortex (the middle layer), and Cuticle (the other layer).”

Medulla - The innermost layer is called the medulla, which is made up of sugar and amino acids, glycogen, and citrulline.

Cortex- The middle layer, called the cortex, surrounds the medulla and contains keratin bonds that help maintain its elasticity. Additionally, it contains melanocytes, which are special cells that produce melanin pigment, that gives hair its colour.

Cuticle- The outermost layer, called the cuticle, is covered by a thin layer of lipids that repels water and gives hair its shine.  

Now what happens when you apply heat or chemically treat your hair?

When heat or chemical is applied to your hair, hair cuticles open up and your hair starts losing moisture. The cuticles remain open and become wide-spaced, failing to retain moisture in the hair. This means your hair has become highly porous.

When you apply heat and chemicals over and over again, at first your cuticle starts damaging and falling off, then the heat/harmful chemical reaches the inner layers of the hair, damaging them as well, making hair brittle.

 Here’s an image for your better understanding.

From the image, you can see that harmful treatments and heat not just damage the cuticles, but also the inner layer of your hair strands. After becoming brittle, your hair loses its strength, starts breaking easily, and results in split ends.

After reading and seeing this, I am very sure that you will limit heat styling and chemical treatment on your hair. But this can help you prevent further damage to some extent, as you should not forget that your hair is also exposed to external elements, like the sun, changes in weather, and environmental pollutants.

Then, what is the solution?

While you should limit heat styling and chemical treatment on your hair, you should also focus on repairing your hair. If you are wondering how you can do that, worry not!
