Having to deal with damaged hair can be quite a bother, to be honest. The paradox is this: the same products that make your hair look lovely harbor the potential to cause damage. It can be a struggle when styling damaged hair because our hair goes through a lot, mechanically and chemically. However, all hope is not lost. There are a number of flat irons for damaged hair that allow you to straighten it while keeping damage to a minimum. Furthermore, in this article, we would like to share with you some damaged-friendly hairstyles that could help you prevent breakage and still help you maximize your glam. Let’s get right to it:

Smooth Chignon

This is one simple hairstyle you want to try out. Smoothen your hair with a brush and form a low ponytail at the back of the neck. Hold it with an elastic band. Add another elastic band a few inches from the bottom of the ponytail. Making an allowance under the ponytail’s elastic band, slide the end of the ponytail through it. Tuck the end back inside the row. Secure the chignon on the right and left with a hairpin.

Twisted low braid or bun

This one is a classic. Start by tying your hair into a ponytail, then separate the ponytail into two equal parts. Gently braid each bundle of hair and tie it off at the end with an elastic band. Repeat this for the other part. Now twist both braided units together. Remember to remove the hair tie that was used to hold the tip of each individual section and tie the new twist with a single hair tie.

Bun or braided ponytails

This is a swift and straightforward style. Start by making a ponytail, high or low but ensure that it is not too tight. Secure it with an elastic band. Loosely braid the ponytail and gently wrap it into a bun. Remember to secure it with a hairpin. 

Half-crown braid

Do you like how it looks like? Grab a section of hair from the side of your head. Make loose braids of each section and bring the braids together at the back of your head. Secure their ends with a hair clip.


This style combines both braids and buns. Start by creating a high ponytail. Braid the ponytail just about halfway through the length of your hair. To make a bun, wrap the ends of your hair around the origin of your ponytail. Allow the braided part of your hair to lie at the base of the bun while the unbraided part forms the bun. Use some hairpins to secure the bun as needed.

Ponytails with ribbons

Ribbons add a really nice twist to ponytails. Brush your hair toward the back of your head. Ensure that all bumps are smoothed out and that there are no knots. Wrap your hair into a low ponytail. Wrap a ribbon around the hair tie, and begin braiding the ponytail. Be sure to incorporate the ribbon into the hair as well. This helps to create an artistic intertwining effect while trying to cover up any damages. You could try finishing off with a bow if the ribbon length permits.

Beauty in simplicity

This list can be continued with much more complicated hairstyles, but the simple things are sometimes most effective. Use these fantastic yet straightforward styles this season, and your hair will be most grateful to you for the extra care.
