How to Treat Damaged Hair

We all suffer from damaged hair now and then. Colored, straightened, chemically treated, teased... it goes through a lot, so it’s no wonder it can sometimes be left crying out for some love. Bring damaged hair back to its silky, healthy-looking and feeling best with our guide to ultimate hair repair.

1. Fortify colored hair.

Coloring can weaken hair. Now obviously we couldn’t swear off experimenting so make up for it with a shampoo designed for colored hair such as Dove Color Care Shampoo and Dove Color Care Conditioner to provide it with nourishment and help your color stay vibrant for longer

2. Turn to treatments.

Brittle hair needs to be fortified to make it strong and healthy-looking again. Try Dove Advanced Hair Series Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil, which nourishes deep inside the hair strands, restoring hair’s healthy appearance and making it shiny and soft

3. Turn to oils.

If we could only take one hair product on holiday, it’s hair oil. It helps prevent hair absorbing salt and chlorine, plus it’s perfect for taming frizz and keeping our locks looking sleek and glossy – even on humid days. Try Dove Advanced Hair Series Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil

4. Sun screen.

Speaking of sun, your skin isn’t the only thing that needs protecting from it. A hairspray with a protective UV filter will help shield it from damage, as well as keeping the sun from tampering with colored hair.

5. Beat the heat.

As for thermal styling – always spritz a heat protection spray over hair first to help protect it from the stress of your tongs, hairdryer, rollers or straighteners.

6. Nourish hair.

For extremely damaged hair, use deep conditioning treatments such as Dove Advanced Hair Series Quench Absolute Intense Restoration Mask at least twice a week until your hair is on the mend to help keep it strong and resistant to breakage.
