Revive Your Damaged Hair At-Home With These 4 Fuss-Free Treatments
Constantly keeping up with hair trends has us going through extra lengths just to achieve picture-perfect, beautiful hair. It becomes a never-ending cycle of hair dyeing, bleaching and constant hairstyling, but we willingly do all of this even at the expense of damaging our hair.
Unhealthy hair care habits also contribute to hair damage. For instance, when hair is not effectively nourished or protected before the process of styling, hair is more susceptible to damage — turning brittle, and getting split ends. The good thing is that there are available treatments to reverse the effect of hair damage, and these are easy steps that everyone can incorporate into their daily hair routines.
1. Try a DIY Mask
If you’re experiencing minor hair damage, preparing a hair mask fresh from your kitchen can do the trick. Below are some of our favourite recipes that are easy to make with readily available ingredients.
Greek Yogurt With Honey and Coconut Oil
If you have frizzy and unmanageable hair, this hair starter pack can do wonders. The combination of yoghurt, honey, and coconut oil gives deep conditioning to the hair for moisture that’s deep within.
To make, prepare a teaspoon of honey and coconut oil and add to two tablespoons of yogurt. Mix well and apply to hair. Massage the pack thoroughly to your scalp and hair and keep it there for a few minutes. Wash thoroughly so you won’t leave any smell behind. For best results of shinier hair, do this once a week.
Almond Milk and Coconut Oil
Protein is an essential element of hair structure and luckily, almonds are a great source of this! More so, these nuts also contain tons of vitamin E which is rich in antioxidants that can have a positive effect on healthy hair growth. If you’re suffering from dry hair and an itchy scalp, this mask is perfect for you.
To make, blend the following ingredients together: 4 egg whites, 5 tbsp almond milk, 2 tbsp coconut oil. Work the mask into your clean, damp hair. By covering your hair with a shower cap, let it sit for 45 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. You can do this mask every 2 weeks until your hair is moisturized and you achieve your desired results.
2. Applying Oil Before Or After A Hair Wash
Did you know that hair is most vulnerable when wet and the products that you use when washing it removes the oils from your strands? Coating your hair with oil after washing leaves your locks softer, smoother, reduces the chances of damage, and protects your ends from getting dried out while still leaving you with a clean scalp unlike when you apply oil to your hair before washing.
There are different kinds of oils available to use for hair, but coconut oil has long been known to make hair grow longer for several reasons:
- It moisturizes the hair and helps reduce breakage
- It protects the hair from protein loss
- It protects the hair from environmental aggressors like wind, sun, and smoke.
Coconut oil tends to be on the thicker side making it perfect for those with coarser hair. But if you’ve got thinner, limp tresses, use coconut oil sparingly or opt for Pantene’s Collagen Miracle Treatment Shots for an intense moisture boost that won’t end up weighing your hair down!
3. Use A Protein-Enhanced Shampoo
If you constantly experience dry and damaged hair, chances are, it’s caused by the heat-styling tools you frequently use, plus your exposure to daily pollution. These factors strip away natural nutrients from your hair that can lead to some serious damage.
Here’s your new go-to product for damaged hair — the Pantene Total Damage Care Shampoo has a unique Pro-V formula, which penetrates deep into the core to restore proteins to the hair that has lost its nutrients. If your hairstyling game is strong, this shampoo works harder to repair the 10 visible signs of damage: dry hair, breakage, split ends, tangles, dullness, brittle strands, rough texture, frizz, and unmanageable hair.
4.Use A Damage Repair Conditioner
Applying conditioner means supplying your hair with moisture and nutrients that are stripped from your hair every time you shampoo. Conditioners also leave a protective coat that locks the moisture in from scalp to hair strands, so it leaves hair smoother and healthier looking. Thus, conditioning your hair should be part of your daily hair care routine.
If you’re looking for a hair care product to revive your damaged locks, go for a damaged hair conditioner like the Pantene Total Damage Care Miracle Conditioner. Damaged hair tips like split ends lose more protein at the roots. This is what the product addresses by repairing damaged hair from deep within the core and working its way to the outermost layer. Pantene’s Pro-Vitamin B5 technology helps prevent protein loss and protects hair from damage caused by frequent styling and chemical treatments so you can enjoy stronger, silky-smooth hair again!
After shampooing, use Pantene Total Damage Care Miracle Conditioner daily and watch your hair grow stronger and healthier. Unlike other conditioners that just cosmetically treat the signs of damage, Pantene Pro-V repairs damage from within.
It’s surprising that the fight to reverse the effects of damaged hair can be simply done at home. Of all the treatments mentioned, Pantene products are the most intensive option that protects all hair types from further damage with every wash. Pantene Total Damage Care Shampoo and Pantene Total Damage Care Miracle Conditioner are loaded with miracle ingredients that target the issues of damage so you can enjoy the picture-perfect hair that you’ve always wanted!
