Pollution, straightening irons, hair dryers, over-exposure to sun and wind - these are just some of the factors that can contribute to serious hair damage.
But can damaged hair actually be repaired?
With so many brilliant products lining the beauty shelves, the answer appears to be a resounding yes.
Here are some hair repair treatments to try.
Aveda Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment
Enriched with castor, jojoba and meadowfoam seed oils plus quinoa protein, this restructuring cream penetrates to help repair, seal and smooth the hair shaft. Use it two or three times a week for gorgeously, glossy locks.
Korres Nourishing Almond & Linseed Hair Mask
Ultra moisturising, this product is ideal as a conditioning treatment for very dry and damaged hair. Almond and Linseed extracts combined with Shea butter, help the hair retain its moisture, while increasing its resistance against breakage and split ends. Whack the mask onto damp hair after shampooing and massage gently. Leave for three to five minutes before rinsing thoroughly.
L'Occitane Repairing Mask for Dry & Damaged Hair
Suitable for coloured and chemically treated hair that has been sapped of moisture, the nourishing formulation replenishes moisture reserves and restores its fibre, making for stronger and healthier-looking. Smooth the cream through the hair from the mid lengths to the tips once or twice a week depending on the level of damage.
Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask
Particularly effective for fine, brittle hair as well as over processed and excessively damaged locks, this oil-based mask penetrates into the hair shaft to help prevent damage caused by chemicals and other environment elements like the sun and the wind.
