Demi Lovato "Giving Hair a Break"

    Hair chameleon Devi Lovato announced this week she is "giving her hair a break" and returning to her brunette roots. The young star is known for her dramatic styling choices and can usually be seen sporting colorful locks, but she may not be aware of the potential damage she is causing to her hair.

Many consumers don’t realize that chemicals like bleaches and dyes fundamentally change the structure of your hair, making it weaker and more susceptible to breakage and damage. Overusing these treatments can lead to severe breakage, hair fallout, loss of density and volume and, if bad enough, even traction alopecia. 

    The good news is that in most cases the damage your hair will sustain is only temporary - but it will take a while for the damage strands to grow back. The best advice is to avoid dyeing your hair too frequently - however, you can also try boosting your hair’s health by using low level laser therapy a few times each week or taking nutritional supplements like biotin, marine-derived proteins and polysaccharides.
