How to Treat Damaged Hair: Tips and Shampoo Recos

Let your damaged hair recover by following these hair care tips. Plus, check out the new shampoos that are designed to repair, nourish, and protect your hair.

Damaged hair often manifests as dry, dull, and frizzy hair. You may also find that it’s difficult to style and it gets tangled easily. Hair damage can be caused by several things, and one of them is excessive combing and brushing. The friction between your brush and your hair causes the hair cuticle—the outer protective layer of your hair— to break down, and this damages your hair little by little over time.

Bleaching is also one of the common causes of hair damage, as this process opens up the hair cuticle to allow the new hair color to come in. This leaves your hair brittle, dry, and prone to further damage. Aside from bleaching, chemical treatments like perming and rebonding also weaken and dry out your hair.

But don’t worry! You can repair damaged strands by using the right products for your hair, like the new Dove Keratin Tri-Silk Serum Shampoos. They are formulated with a powerful combination of keratin, fiber actives, and serum ingredients that instantly repairs damage, deeply nourishes and protects, and leaves your hair extra beautiful. Each shampoo from this range can complement various hair repair tips. Check them out.

How to Repair Damaged Hair

1. Fight frizz.

Frizz is one of the first signs of damage, because it means that your hair cuticles are starting to break down. It’s common to have frizzy hair in a humid country like ours, because salt and water droplets in the air tend to get absorbed by your hair. The result? Those tiny bumps you see on an otherwise smooth hair surface.

To tame frizz, use a shampoo that helps make your hair smooth and silky, like Dove Straight & Silky Keratin Tri-Silk Serum Shampoo. It has Amino Essence to boost hair health and deep nourishment up to the core of your hair fibers. It nourishes hair bonds and makes each strand smooth and soft.

3. Trim your split ends.

The tips of your hair tend to be drier than the rest of your hair. When you see frayed tips, it’s a sign that split ends are starting to form. Remove them by taking a small section of hair that’s about an inch wide. Twisting it lightly and use a sharp pair of scissors to trim the small strands that are poking out. When you trim your split ends, you keep them from going up to your hair shaft and causing from further damage.

After you’ve trimmed your split ends, keep your hair from getting dry and dull with the help of Dove Nourishing Oil Care Keratin Tri-Silk Serum Shampoo. It has a unique blend of weightless Nutri-Oils that restore your hair’s smoothness. It also nourishes your hair, controls frizz, leaves your hair extra glossy and extra bouncy.

You might not notice it, but even your pillow can affect the state of your hair. The friction between your strands and your pillowcase can cause frizz and breakage, so make sure to use one that’s made of a soft and smooth fabric like silk.

Your hair will also benefit from a shampoo that helps prevent breakage and hair fall such as Dove Hair Fall Rescue Keratin Tri-Silk Serum Shampoo. It has DynaZinc complex that nourishes your hair from the roots to the tips and fortifies the hair fiber to make your hair extra strong, resilient, and healthy.
