How to Strengthen Damaged Hair!

Hair can be damaged by the environment, styling or chemical treatments and also hairdressers who claim they are color specialists. If you have damaged hair, it may be brittle, dry, or lack shine and movement. While hair is not living and cannot be repaired, you can stop further damage, strengthen the shaft of the hair and increase shine and softness with proper hair care, gentle styling, and homemade hair treatments. Adding protein and moisture to the hair can help it to stay soft and healthy.  I suggest you use the Kalea Rose Passion Conditioner and Treatment for over processed hair. When the hair is degraded you will lose elasticity, in your styling and the hair will also lose its luster!  Shampoo your hair less frequently. Opt for less-frequent shampooing to allow the hair to retain more of its natural oils and avoid stripping moisture from your damaged hair. Use conditioner alone between shampoos to keep your hair soft and shiny.

Use a conditioner every time you wash your hair or get it wet in the shower. Opt for a rich conditioner with protein, emollients and humectants. Look for one with ingredients such as silk or soy protein, avocado or shea butter.  Apply a deep conditioner once a week. I also recommend Virgin Olive Oil for the hair (buy the product at the health food store). Shampoo and condition the hair, towel dry and place a good amount on the hair, comb it through and let it stay on the damaged hair for a few hours. Make sure to shampoo it out. Do this several times a week and you will notice a considerable change in a 30-60 day period.

Choose hair styles that do not require blow drying, straightening irons or flat irons. Opt for styling products without alcohol and look for those containing moisturizers and humectants to keep your hair as healthy as possible. Follow this regime and you will see your hair become revitalized again and the elasticity become normal.
