Having damaged hair is one of the most common complaints hairdressers hear about and with hair colouring, heat styling and both indoor and outdoor air pollution acting as major contributing factors, it’s no wonder. Admittedly, sometimes when the hair is in total disrepair from excess bleaching or similarly harsh treatment, it can be better to cut your losses by ditching those dead ends and opting for a gorgeous LOB or Pixie cut, focusing instead on the condition of your scalp to allow fresh, healthy hair to grow anew. However, for those of you longing to keep your length, there is hope – but it doesn’t come in the form of the synthetic ingredients you’ll often find touted as the natural additions to chemical products.
There are many big cosmetics brands who claim to be harnessing the power of nature in their haircare by allegedly including some of our favourite hair heroes: Aloe, nettle and a variety of natural oils to name a few. But unlike our products that really are made with these ingredients straight from nature, theirs are more often than not synthesised, which takes away so much of the goodness. When you combine that with the fact that they then throw in toxic ingredients that seriously damage locks (particularly fragile ones), you’re fighting a losing battle with the wrong weapon.
When dealing with very damaged hair. its also a good idea to keep you scalp in check, to encourage healthy new growth. For this, indulge in a weekly scalp treatment:
- Warm 1 pump of our Scented Hair Oil in your hands
- Massage deeply, really getting that circulation going, 30 minutes before washing
- Cleanse your hair as usual
