Whether you color your hair, or it just seems to be damaged all by itself, fear not – our experts have got the best tips and tricks in the book to help you with how to take care of damaged hair.
Choosing the right shampoo and conditioner won’t be the solution to all your damaged-hair-problems but it’s a good place to start. Choose nourishing options like our Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang Shampoo and Conditioner.
Washing your hair too often can strip your hair and scalp of essential oils that help keep them healthy. Generally, washing your hair every 2 to 3 days is recommended, although knowing how often you should wash your hair will depend on your hair type and your lifestyle. Spritz your hair with some of our Murumuru Butter & Rose Dry Shampoo if you need a touch-up between washes.
Make conditioners your new best friend
The cuticle is the outer layer of your hair designed to protect your strands. The cuticle can easily be damaged by factors such as heat, color, and pollution, leaving your hair vulnerable to breakage. Conditioners help to close the cuticle, thus reinstating the protective layer of your hair, as well as providing your tresses with the moisture it craves. Our experts recommend incorporating a leave-in conditioner, like our Argan Oil & Lavender Leave-In Smoothie Cream, into your weekly routine for nourished, healthier hair.
Get the chop
Not sure what to do with damaged hair? This may not be the answer you’re looking for, but if you’re wondering how to fix damaged hair, then sometimes a simple trim is the answer. We’re not suggesting a dramatic haircut, but trimming your hair allows you to get rid of broken and damaged strands, as well as split ends, encouraging healthy hair growth. For more tips, check out our article on how to get rid of split ends.
Use hair oil
Hair oil is a great way to help repair damaged hair. Thanks to the usual components of fatty acids and vitamins, hair oils not only add moisture to your hair but help to provide protection against pollution and heat damage. Our experts recommend using our Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang 3-in-1 Benefit Oil, specifically designed to help repair damaged hair and prevent split ends.
Heat is the enemy of damaged hair (and, as we said earlier, may also be the cause). Try using a cooler setting on your hairdryer or, better yet, just air dry your hair naturally. Trust us – your hair will thank you for the break! Struggling for inspiration? Why not check out our heatless hairstyle tips?
And there you have it! There’s no need to worry if your hair is dry and damaged – as we’ve explained in this article, there are lots of simple solutions to this common problem.
