Style It Out: 3 Products for Styling Damaged Hair
1. Repair and replenish with a hair mask.
Shampoos and conditioners are the baseline of haircare for any hair type, but if you’re styling damaged hair, you’re going to want to replenish your strands in the shower with an added conditioning boost before you get to styling. That’s why you should always have a hair mask in your shower caddy! Using a hair mask at least once a week can help soften, smoothen, and repair your locks from all of the stress and tension it suffers from daily. One of our top picks for hair masks is Nexxus Keraphix Damage Healing Masque. This mask contains black rice extract with a carefully balanced blend of proteins that include keratin, collagen and elastin to wraps strands with an ultra-fine film to help restore the protective barrier of your locks. It leaves your hair more aligned, flexible and smoother to the touch while moisturizing deep into your strands.
2. Keep it cool with heat protectant.
If you have hair that’s in distress, one of the worst things you can do is styling damaged hair without using a heat protectant. Putting a hot straightener or curling wand directly onto bare strands, without any protection, is a recipe for split ends, frizziness and overall damage. Whenever we’re styling our hair, we always use TRESemme Get Sleek Heat Protection Spray to keep our strands protected and in control. This ultra-fine spray is formulated to resist heat up to 450 degrees, and works to prevent any unwanted moisture loss while making your hair look silky smooth.
3. Do some damage control with hair oil.
It’s always a good idea to apply some hair oil as your final styling touch. Styling damaged hair can be strenuous to your locks, and hair oil can help control your locks after the styling process. Keep your locks frizz-free and glossy with ApotheCARE Essentials The Mender Hair Oil. This oil works specifically for damaged, distressed hair by replenishing nutrients and smoothening roughened cuticles. It’s grease-free formula absorbs quickly into your locks, leaving it weightless and full of beautiful sheen.
