5 Tips For Repairing Damaged Hair

If your hair is dry, brittle and showing signs of damage there a few things you can do to help restore it to health. Healthy, luxurious hair is often considered a keystone for many a womanís beauty. Because of this itís good to consider some of the simple, fundamental steps to repairing damaged hair.

  1. Stop Damaging It - This may seem virtually obvious, but a lot of people donít think about it when they are seeking to heal damaged hair. Many people donít think about color treatment, hair drying, curling irons and styling products as part of the problem but in reality they are. If youíre looking to restore health to your hair, put a cease and desist order to some of the above. Stop coloring it for a moment, donít use hairspray and let your hair air dry. Donít use a curling iron, take showers that are just warm and not hot and blot hair dry rather than roughing it up with a towel.

  2. Change Shampoo And Conditioner - If youíre buying your shampoo and conditioner at the grocery store there is a good chance youíre buying harsh chemicals with a lot of perfume. These products often are full of sulfates which dry hair out and damage it further. You are better off to look for shampoos with more natural ingredients and ingredients that are beneficial to your hair. Choose high quality shampoos that are gentle to help restore your hair. When shampooing, apply only a small amount to the scalp and work your way down. Donít ball your locks on top of your head and scrub this way as it can induce more breakage. The best shampoo and conditioner for damaged hair most often are formulated with Keratin or Emu oil. Keratin rebuilds and strengthens protein bonds, and Emu Oil adds nutrients and penetrates for improved moisture content in the follicle.
  3. Conditioner - Invest in a deep conditioner and one that is meant to restore moisture or repair damage is best. When applying it, start at the tips and work your way up the shaft to the roots. This will help to insure you get conditioner throughout your entire locks and will concentrate it on the split ends first. Leave in conditioners are also great to consider because they can help to restore health to your hair.
  4. Hot Oil Treatments - Most hair that is damaged is damaged from lack of moisture. One of the best ways to get this moisture back into your hair is to use a hot oil treatment. You can purchase one already packaged at a salon or you can use oil from your pantry such as olive oil or coconut oil. With a treatment youíll want to warm the oil up, spread it through your hair evenly and cover with a shower cap or towel. Let it sit on your hair for at least fifteen minutes or longer before shampooing and conditioning. You can do this as often as twice a week for damaged hair.
  5. Get A Trim - If your hair is full of split ends itís a good idea to get a trim. Damaged hair that is truly frayed and splitting wonít easily get restored to a healthy state. This means getting a trim may be the best bet to restoring health to your mane. Often, the simplest and easiest solution can work with the best hair products for damaged frizzy hair. Sometimes you need to "punt" and start over and that's exactly what a trim can do for you. Despite all the conditioning, treatment and effort just cannot put together the pieces and a trim of frayed, frizzy ends is the first place to start.
