Hair that is dull-looking and dry with split ends is in dire need of care and attention. But do not despair, our hair care and styling tips will restore your hair to its natural beauty in no time at all
Environmental influences like heat, sun and wind can damage hair. Once the cuticle layer around each hair is damaged, hair easily loses its moisture leaving it dry and brittle.
Help for Damaged Hair
Certain hairstyles like curls, braids or a sleek style give your hair a break from blow-drying and heated styling tools.
Special hair products will help your hair recover quickly from damaging influences. So the choice of shampoo is especially important. Shampoos for damaged hair contain ingredients, which repair and regenerate hair. Repair ingredients include oils, keratin and panthenol.
In addition, be sure to use a conditioner for damaged hair. Conditioners seal the hair after shampooing and will protect hair from additional damage.
Apply a small amount of hair oil to your dry or wet hair on a daily basis for silky shine.
Do not use hair bands with metal parts as they will cause additional damage to your hair.
Modify your hairstyle daily. This allows your hair to recover as it avoids damage in the same area repeatedly.
Hairstyles for Damaged Hair
Usually, damaged hair lacks moisture, lustre, bounce and volume. Under such conditions, wearing updos works well and allows your hair to recover. Below, we describe two hairstyles which are particularly suitable for the transition from damaged to healthy-looking hair.

First, wash your hair using shampoo for damaged hair. After working conditioning products through your hair, twist the damp hair into a chignon at the back of your head. The conditioner will work its magic on your hair while you carry on with your day.
Tip: Do not twist your hair too tightly. Undone looking chignon styles are particularly popular and avoid too much tension on hair and scalp. Apply an extra portion of conditioning spray on the styled chignon. You will notice the extra shine when you undo it.

Braiding your hair achieves two goals; it does not require the use of damaging styling tools, and most of your hair is not exposed to environmental influences such as sun, heat or wind. Braiding damp hair is also a way to create waves without the use of heated styling tools.
Tip: Wash your hair using shampoo for damaged hair. Then loosely braid damp hair and arrange the braid as desired. You may like to unravel the hairstyle just a little bit. Finally, apply conditioning spray to the braid and especially to the hair ends.
