Information on Hair Repair
Hair damage can be difficult to know what to do with. Bleach, sun and over styling can leave us with split ends, breakages and overall fragility. Many of us long for the days when we felt thick, strong, soft and healthy hair under our fingers! Especially if you have thinning hair, you want it looking its best. Damaged strands often look as troubled as they feel! What’s more, attempting to aesthetically mask the damage with a blow dry can only make things worse.
Fortunately, there are now all manner of specialised applications, seeking to restore your hair’s beauty. The right shampoo, conditioner, mask or oil can step in. With more of us styling our locks, many innovative solutions have been formulated. However, you should take care - overusing a chemically loaded product might cause more harm in the long run.
Can I Repair My Hair Naturally?
Yes, you can! Nature is unbelievably rich in organically reparative factors. Hydration is as important to plant’s strength and growth as it is to your strands, and their extracts can give your hair some much needed love. Natural oils, waters and extracts can help to smooth strands. They protect them from harm, sealing moisture for a softer sensation. Also, try allowing your tresses to naturally air dry. Hair styles that embrace your essential texture rather than relying on heated applications can really help.
Shampooing And Conditioning
Washing your hair is more than an essential - it’s a great first step in repairing your mane! Look for shampoos that use a light, gentle approach, to avoid stripping hair of much needed natural oil. Those enriched with botanicals like purifying Sage can gently cleanse without chemical intervention, while Chamomile can soothe from the beginning. If you want to avoid washing too much, the occasional spritz of dry shampoo to already dried hair can help as well.
When it comes to a regular conditioner, look for those packed with natural oils to care for your hair shafts. Jojoba Oil has long been used to condition hair, locking in moisture with Vitamin E to protect. Shea Butter and Coconut Oil are also truly wonderful repairative factors, both of which have an ideally light and absorbable texture.
How About Masks & Oils?
Hair masks, many of which are best applied once a week, are a fabulous extra aid. They’re even thought to help with hair growth! As they are truly intensive, they’re often enriched with heavier oils like Olive. Within Olive Oil you can find Squalene, a component also found in human sebum. Extra botanicals like Soybean and Shea add further moisture, while Rose rebalances hair’s pH. Left on for a longer period than conditioner, over time they can leave your hair looking and feeling repaired.
Oil treatments can be washed out or, for a truly intensive approach, left in while hair dries. Pure Moroccan Argan Oil is becoming highly popular, as it powerfully soothes, calms and nourishes with a rich fatty-acid composition. Many other applications blend different oils together, to reap the benefits of a selection.
