We Asked ChatGPT How to Fix Damaged Hair and The Results Are Impressive

Would you follow a haircare routine designed by AI?

Recently, the temptation to use AI for everything has taken over the world, and we can’t stop playing with the tool. Beauty lovers ask the program for makeup ideas, the best skincare products, or the ideal haircare routine. We asked ChatGPT how to fix damaged hair, and the results were surprising. Let’s find out how accurate the responses are and their pros and cons regarding hair care.

Below are the answers we received:

“There are several ways to fix damaged hair, depending on the extent of the damage. Here are some tips that can help:.”

  1. Trim your hair regularly: Regular trims help remove the damaged ends and promote healthy hair growth.
  2. Use a gentle shampoo: Use a mild, sulfate-free shampoo that won’t strip your hair of its natural oils.
  3. Deep condition your hair: Use a deep conditioning treatment once a week to help nourish and repair your hair.
  4. Avoid heat styling: Heat styling tools like blow dryers, straighteners, and curling irons can damage your hair. Try to limit your use of these tools or use them in a low-heat setting.
  5. Protect your hair from the sun: Sun exposure can damage your hair, so wear a hat or use a hair product that contains SPF.
  6. Use a wide-tooth comb: Use a wide-tooth comb instead of a brush to avoid pulling and damaging your hair.
  7. Eat a healthy diet: A diet rich in vitamins and minerals can help promote healthy hair growth.
  8. Limit chemical treatments: Hair treatments like coloring, perms, and relaxers can damage your hair. Try to limit your use of these treatments or choose a gentler alternative.

“Remember, repairing damaged hair takes time, so be patient and consistent with your hair care routine.”

Let us give these answers our human touch and verify or debunk them.

Cons of ChatGPT as Your Hair Advisor

Con 1: AI isn’t always correct

We can say, for example, prompt 1 is true, but not quite. We can refute that hair doesn’t grow from the ends, but the roots and a healthy scalp is more important than dry ends. Trimming ends is more for aesthetics than for the actual science of hair growth. Additionally, Prompt 2 is false because people with oily hair types can benefit from shampoo formulas with sulfates.

Con 2: ChatGPT doesn’t respond to you personally

Yes, AI gives generic answers by scanning articles on the web with similar keywords. AI knows nothing about your hair type or how to fix it; the advice is quite random. Sometimes, AI-generated texts don’t even pass the plagiarism check, so let’s not pretend you’re talking 1-on-1 with an expert.

Con 3: AI isn’t fully up to date yet

If you use ChatGPT, remember that its knowledge cutoff date was September 2021, so it can’t recommend the newest products or solutions. But besides that fact, AI isn’t good at spotting trends because its ability to analyze information, in general, is limited.

ChatGPT can’t recommend the latest products because they’re new, but we can. If you want to know how to fix damaged hair, for example, we suggest you try Dove RE+AL Bio-Mimetic Repair Coconut + Vegan Keratin Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner with nature-derived active oils. These oils imitate the hair’s natural protective process while strengthening your damaged tresses.


Pros of ChatGPT as Your Hair Advisor

Now, let’s talk about the advantages of using AI as a beauty advisor because they are real.

Pro 1: AI works really fast

If you’re limited with time (and who’s not?), you can get direct answers from AI to your exact question in seconds, unlike search engines that require research between a few sources. However, one can benefit from searching and researching since we learn about the topic this way. The fact that you’ll receive more accurate information about how to fix damaged hair from search engines is higher than from AI.

Pro 2: You can specify AI results

You can always specify your question if you’re unhappy with AI’s answer. For example, if you’re not a fan of long hair routines, you may ask for 3 step instructions:

Or, if you have chemically damaged hair from bleach, add the keyword to your question:

Con: Oils are not recommended on dyed and bleached hair, as they can alter the new color.

If you really want AI to generate certain content, it’s not as easy as it may seem. You’ll need to be patient, ask accurate questions, and verify the results you’ll get. Keep in mind that the AI’s responses are one-size-fits-all results. In this case, Its answers excluded testimonials, studies, and research conducted on each hair type.

3. You can teach AI 

So, in general, using AI is fast, simple, and a lot of fun. But it’s not always correct, accurate, or personalized enough to follow its advice. But rumors have it (actually, AI creators say) that you can learn and train AI by regularly asking and narrowing your questions. For now, let us leave all hair questions and solutions to the real experts, people who deal with clients daily and that actually study hair.
