How to Repair Damaged Hair

Damaged hair can be caused by a number of factors. Repair damaged hair from the inside out and the outside in with these expert tips for damaged hair repair.

Healthy Hair vs. Damaged Hair – How to Spot the Signs of Damaged Hair

The main signs of damaged hair include split ends, hair breakage and dullness. In contrast, healthy hair is shinier, thicker and less prone to breakage. Normally, we lose between 50 and 100 hairs every day. However, if your hair breaks easily and you are losing more than 100 hairs in your hairbrush or shower drain, your hair could be damaged. Fortunately, there are actions you can take to repair damaged hair.

Most Common Causes of Damaged Hair and Hair Shedding

Hair shedding and damaged hair can be caused by overstyling, too-harsh chemical hair products, hair color treatments, heat-styling such as blow-drying and straightening, shampoos with parabens and sulfates, and environmental factors. Damaged hair can also be caused by internal factors such as poor diet, stress, aging, medication, post-pregnancy, menopause and smoking. To repair damaged hair and reduce hair shedding, try a hair growth supplement to nourish hair follicles from within with vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. As a damaged hair treatment for damage due to overstyling, harsh chemicals and heat-styling, reduce your use of heat styling tools and cut down on overstyling with tight braids and other elaborate hairstyles that cause damage and breakage to hair.

How to Repair Damaged Hair with Hair Care Products

If you have damaged hair, hair shedding or split ends, the correct hair care products can help repair damaged hair. Use a gentle shampoo and a moisturizing conditioner that are SLS-free and SLES-free (two sulfate-based chemicals common in beauty products), and are also free of parabens, artificial colors and artificial fragrances. Also, repair damaged hair with a shampoo and a conditioner that contain the majority of ingredients derived from natural sources. Minimizing the harsh chemicals in your hair care products such as shampoo and conditioner will help nourish hair from the outside and help keep it clean without stripping hair strands of essential oils. In addition, choose a conditioner that contains argan oil and hazelnut oil to soften hair and leave damaged hair silky smooth.
