Is your hair damaged?! How to know

Saturday, 24 January 2015

A simple test to learn about hair condition

What this is testing:

Hair Damage

Why this is important

When your hair’s outer layer is damaged, care is needed to protect it from further, more severe damage and breakage.

What You’ll Need

A hair strand, 175 ml glass of water, clock that can count seconds

How to conduct this experiment

Step 1: Take a clean (shampooed only) hair strand from the middle to back of your head.
Step 2: Roll the hair strand into a ball and place it in a glass of water
Step 3: How long does it take the hair strand to sink?
If the hair strand sinks within a couple of seconds, your hair health is poor, and your hair is damaged. Your hair needs products that help repair and protect weak, damaged hair.
If the hair strand floats for over one minute, your hair condition is good and your hair is mostly in good shape and you can count on healthy looking hair. It needs continued conditioning to keep it manageable and protected against damage.
