What you need to know about hair repair products

Blonde hair

As there is a whole host of different hair repair products out there, it is important to find the ones that can treat your specific needs. No two people’s hair is the same, so simply opting for the most popular salon brand that states something like ‘frizz control’ isn’t likely to give you the results you want. While it’s no secret that well-formulated products can meet the needs of many users, you may not find the best one for you without doing a little research. As these products won’t repair your hair overnight, it’s a worthwhile idea to find something that not only works, but one that you can use consistently to maintain results.

Treating dry hair

You may be experiencing dryness if your hair is over-processed, which usually occurs with colouration, heat styling, or even from using relaxers. When this is the case, your hair is likely lacking protein and essential oils that may make it less elastic or brittle and eventually break. To prevent further damage from occurring, conditioners can come in handy.

Hair repair products like leave-in conditioners and hot oil treatments containing olive oil, avocado oil, shea butter and argan oil are best known for their moisturising properties. Look out for deep conditioners that have humectants and emollients like glycerin, peptides, propylene glycol and sodium lactate, too. (1)

Best products for damaged hair

Split ends can’t be repaired and once they occur, the only way to treat them is to have them cut off (this is widely advised in the hair care community). If your hair is damaged beyond simple dryness, using the above products will still be helpful, but regular haircuts will be a must. (2)
