Ways Hair Damage Occurs & Tips on Prevention

by Brianna Thompson

At The Warehouse Salon, we understand that your hair is constantly exposed to elements that can cause damage, even when you take care of it. From the environment to chemical treatments, heat styling, pollution, and mechanical friction, there are many factors that can harm your hair. That's why we've compiled a list of 5 ways your hair can get damaged and tips on how to prevent it:

The Environment

Exposure to the sun, chlorine, wind, and cold weather can all cause hair to become dry, brittle, and discolored. To protect your hair from environmental damage, our salon offers leave-in treatments that contain UV protection and our stylists can recommend hairstyles that will protect your hair while you're outside.

Chemical Services

Coloring, straightening, and perming can all alter the natural structure and pH of hair, making it more prone to breakage and split ends. At our salon, we use only the best and safest chemical treatments, and our stylists are trained to provide guidance on what services are best for your hair type. We offer a revolutionary repair treatment called K18 that repair the hair structure inside out in just 4 minutes! 


Heat Styling

Constant use of heat styling tools can cause hair to become over-processed and damaged. Our salon offers heat protectant treatments to minimize damage and our stylists can recommend heat styling techniques that will limit the use of heat styling tools, while still giving you the look you want.


Polluted air can build up on the hair and scalp, leading to dryness and dullness. At our salon, we offer shampoos and conditioners that are specifically formulated to protect your hair from environmental damage, as well as weekly deep conditioning treatments and hair masks.


Mechanical Friction

Constant brushing and combing of the hair, tight hairstyles, and rough bristles can all cause damage. Our stylists are trained in the best techniques for gentle styling that will minimize mechanical friction and protect your hair from damage.



    By understanding the ways in which your hair can be damaged, we can help you take steps to protect it and keep it healthy. Using quality hair care products, seeking professional guidance, and being mindful of your daily habits can all help to prevent hair damage and keep your locks looking beautiful.
