Hair Products - Treatments for Damaged Hair
It is not hard to notice the difference between the full-bodied, healthy hair and the damaged mane. Damaged locks are dry when touching, dull, brittle and look fried. They lack elasticity, flexibility and shine; usually their ends are frizzy and split.
What damages the strands?
The most common causes are external - bleaching, coloring, perming, using of relaxers and ignoring to neutralize them, heating tools, excessive sun exposure, chlorine water, etc.
On the other hand, causes of damaged hair could be diseases, unhealthy diet - missing nutrients, stress.
Unfortunately, it is actually impossible to repair damaged hair. The easiest way is to cut the damaged locks, but if you are not ready to say "Good bye" to your tresses, you should prepare to give them consistent care. The treatments will bring back the look of vitality to the damaged strands, while the regular hair trims will eliminate the damage insensibly, maintaining your locks at the desired length.
