As a consequence of lifestyle changes and increased ignorance, damaged hair has become the new normal. The damage, if not taken care of, further causes hair loss and other hair problems. The primary factors contributing to hair damage are increased hair styling, chemical hair treatments, and absent hair care routines.

Gone are the days when our mothers used to oil our hair now and then and apply natural hair masks to strengthen the hair roots. That was when most people had long lustrous hair instead of dry, brittle hair with bald patches. However, even if the definition of hair care has changed over time, there is still plenty of scope for hair repair by following medical treatments and employing natural remedies.

Read with us to know how to fix damaged curly hair and repair damaged hair.

Can Damaged Hair Really Be Repaired?

It is never too late to start following a hair care routine to enhance hair quality and protect them from further damage. The ways to repair damaged hair include taking medical treatments, at the same time employing natural remedies. The earlier you start your hair treatment, the better condition you will get back your hair in.

Some ways to repair damaged hair are:

  • Opt for leave-in hair treatments: Leave-in hair treatments are round-the-clock protectors for your hair. They guard your hair every time since you don’t rinse them out like shampoos and other products. Just like other hair products, leave-ins can be purchased based on the hair type. A leave-in used for colored hair helps keep the color longer by providing UV protection to the hair.

    A leave-in used for frizzy and unruly hair helps keep the hair moisturized, smooth, and more manageable. The best application of leave-ins is when the hair is damp, neither soaking wet nor dry. After applying the leave-in, you must also comb your hair with a wide-toothed comb to ensure even distribution.

  • Consider professional treatments: Sometimes, DIY hair masks and hair care routines won’t do the trick. It is when you must consider taking professional hair treatment for damaged hair. The in-salon treatment consists of the most active ingredients that can cure all kinds of hair, from over-processed or weak to brittle hair.

    The stylist can provide you with a complete hair treatment starting right from the shampoo bowl to conditioning. Since these treatments are powerful and use basic chemicals, you will witness the changes immediately after application.

  • Use bond preserving formulas: The maximum damage occurs when a chemical is used in the hair for either coloring them or doing keratin treatments. The process of hair color and lighteners to work is for the hair structural bonds to loosen up. Once these bonds become loose, they become more vulnerable, prone to breakage, dryness, and damage.

    The best way to avoid this is to use a bond preserving formula to the hair color protecting the hair bonds from weakening. These formulas also strengthen the hair to protect them from future damage occurring due to coloring. Therefore, these become extremely important for maintaining good hair health when opting for chemical hair services.

  • Choose the appropriate shampoo: To treat damaged hair, you must use a sulfate-free shampoo. Further, shampoos containing natural origin ingredients will be beneficial in treating damaged hair. Besides this, you must refrain from over-shampooing your hair.

    If you have an oily scalp, opt for dry shampoos on the second or third day instead of a conventional hair wash. Always use cool water to rinse your hair after shampooing since it helps the damaged hair by causing the hair shaft to lie flat and by closing the hair cuticle.

Can Damaged Hair Be Repaired Naturally?

It is possible to treat damaged hair naturally if you start employing natural remedies timely. At all stages in life, oiling hair and using natural hair masks are paramount. These are some of the natural remedies that act as the best hair treatment for dry, damaged hair:

  • Use hair masks and hair healing masks: To preserve and regain your good quality hair, you must indulge in using hair conditioning and healing masks. Hair masks contain naturally sourced ingredients, essential oils, vitamins, and moisturizing ingredients that help strengthen the hair. These masks are generally thicker than conditioner ensuring they stay put on the hair, allowing the nutrients to penetrate deeper.

    Hair masks help refill the gaps that have formed on the surface of damaged hair. They also keep providing nourishment to the scalp even after rinsing. You can easily pick a mask suitable for your hair type and apply it twice a week. The higher the stay time, the better results you can expect.

  • Minimizing pool water and sun exposure: Chlorine water does more damage to your hair than you can ever imagine. It not only makes the hair brittle and fragile but takes a toll on the hair color. Thus, it is necessary to wear a swim cap when going for a swim, especially if you go often. Besides this, excessive sun exposure also damages the hair. You must protect your hair from direct exposure to the sun by wearing a cap or a scarf. Further, after swimming and sunning, you must moisturize your hair and use conditioning formulas to minimize damage.
  • Reduce hairstyling and heat damage: THairstyling using curlers, straighteners, and blow dryers can ensure an excellent hair appearance. However, the damage caused by heat makes the hair dry, brittle, and prone to breakage. In most cases, excessive styling or high-temperature equipment is the reason behind damaged hair. Hence, minimize hairstyling as much as possible. Further, most people do not need such a high temperature while styling if they do not have very coarse hair or thick hair that makes managing heat important. Even when necessary, you must opt for air-dry formulas or use a heat protection product to protect your hair from thermal damage.
  • Handle wet hair with care: Hair is the most vulnerable when wet. It is time they are sensitive and prone to breakage. You must handle them well and avoid using a brush on them unless specially designed for the purpose. It is best to use either a wide-toothed comb or your fingers to untangle the hair.

    Further, avoid vigorously rubbing the hair just after the shower. You must instead use a fluffy towel gently on your hair or a microfiber cloth. It helps avoid friction that might cause stress on the vulnerable hair. Further, refrain from using an elastic band on your wet hair to keep them away from further breakage and damage.

  • Trim the split ends: Another reason for hair damage, especially damaged and unruly appearance, is split ends. When hair becomes split, they gradually start unraveling from the bottom up causing a frizzy mess.

    To prevent split ends, you must take good care of the hair by using conditioners, hair masks, and leave-ins on your hair. Further, to get rid of the split ends and stop them from doing any hair damage, you must get your hair trimmed every few months. Without losing a lot of hair length, you can get the ends trimmed to keep your hair unfrayed at the end.

  • Keep your scalp hydrated: Just like the skin, our hair needs moisturization to look pleasant. Dry hair is the primary reason behind damage and breakage because if there is not enough moisture content, it will be brittle and fragile.

    If your hair is dry, you must follow a moisturizing regimen of a hydrating mask, shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in products. You must also ensure that your water intake is up to the mark so that the scalp remains hydrated internally as well.

  • These are some ways to treat hair damage in no time. However, consult a hair specialist if you do not see any significant results after following these natural remedies for a long time. The hair expert will prescribe you suitable hair treatment and hair products after performing a thorough scalp analysis.

Does Coconut Oil Help Damaged Hair?

Massaging the hair helps in bettering the blood circulation at the same time strengthening the hair roots. Coconut oil consists of the necessary hair nutrients that provide conditioning. It also nourishes the hair follicles thereby, strengthening the hair. Therefore, coconut oil is extremely helpful in treating damaged hair.

Besides coconut oil, you can also use coconut milk as a natural conditioner in your hair to make your hair strong and enhance growth.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
