How To Fix Damaged Hair

It happens to even the best head of hair: dryness, dullness, breakage, and split ends. Everything from over-styling to weather can be a factor. At any time, you may find yourself wondering how to repair damaged hair.

Here, six easy tips to strengthen strands and keep them healthy from here on out.

Go Crazy With Conditioner

Consider conditioner your unsung hair repair hero. Used so often, you may forget that it’s regularly softening and hydrating your strands. To effectively fix hair damage, look for formulas with hair repairing claims that fit your hair type . For those in the fine to medium camp, Brazilian Joia™ Strengthening + Smoothing Conditioner uses Sol Seal Technology™’s keratin-like, plant-based microcapsules to repair and help prevent future damage, including dryness, frizz, and split ends. The formula is sulfate-free and lightweight, so it won’t weigh hair down. After just one use, it’s clinically proven to repair 58% of damage and mend 76% of split ends.* More than just a staple, conditioner is the star of your routine.

Turn Down The Heat

From pretty beach waves to glossy blowouts, hot tools take your hair from dull to dreamy. But, overuse causes signs of heat damage, including dryness, breakage, and flyaways. Prevent this by lowering the temperature on your blow dryer, curling iron, and straightening iron. Most hair types see the same results with a mid-range setting. Apply a heat protectant before using tools, too. Milky Leave-In Conditioner protects up to 450 degrees, while simultaneously repairing split ends and fighting frizz.

Pay Extra Attention To Wet Hair

Hair is most delicate when wet, especially for fine and curly hair types. Once out of the shower, gently blot with a fluffy towel, microfiber cloth, or soft t-shirt to reduce split strands. When it comes to detangling, brushes can cause breakage. Instead, our limited-edition wide tooth comb gently glides through all types and textures. We also suggest avoiding elastic bands until hair is completely dry.

Smooth On A Hair Mask

When it comes to restoring hair, a conditioning mask performs wonders in just a few minutes. Thicker than your average conditioner with a higher concentration of ingredients, a mask can be more effective at nourishing . Triple Brazilian Butter™ Hair Repair Treatment uses Brazilian butters and Sol Seal Technology™ to intensely hydrate, nourish, and increase resistance to breakage. After one use, 90% of respondents said their dry and damaged hair felt dramatically more moisturized.** It’s the ultimate ten-minute transformation.

Give It A ‘Leave-In’ Treat

A leave-in treatment can be key to fixing damaged hair between washes. Simply spray on Milky Leave-In Conditioner and let it go to work. A lightweight mist for dry or damp hair, it locks in moisture, fights frizz up to 72 hours and quenches thirsty strands. With so much ease and versatility, it’s perfect for your low-maintenance routine.

Split Up With Split Ends

Need a solve for split ends? Look for sulfate-free formulas that address this concern, like Brazilian Joia™ Strengthening + Smoothing Shampoo. After just one use with Joia™ Shampoo and Conditioner , it’s clinically proven to mend 76% of split ends***. Healthy fats smooth cuticles, fight frizz, and strengthen dry, brittle hair. Regular trims at your salon also help keep split ends at bay. Stylists suggests a simple “dusting” every 6-8 weeks to snip off damage. If you missed a salon visit or need a quick fix, turn to a serum or oil. Clinically proven to repair split ends***, Brazilian Glossy™ Nourishing Hair Oil is our favorite hair pick-me-up when getting ready or on the go.
