Everyday Conditioners That Repair
Whether your hair was damaged by heat, chemicals, sun exposure or brushing and combing, taking steps to address the problem every day can help to restore softness, silkiness and strength to your stressed locks. After you shampoo
, you can apply a salon rinse-out damage repair conditioner with ingredients that fill in weak spots on the strands and supply hair with moisture to help it regain flexibility. Leave-in conditioners that do not need to be rinsed after application can be used after you have towel dried your hair and on days when you don't shampoo and condition
to rejuvenate and restore the strands.
Conditioning Treatments for Strengthening
Professional stylists often recommend deep conditioning treatments for damaged hair, and you can purchase many of the same conditioners used for these services for home use. Deep conditioners have intensive formulas that deeply hydrate hair while reinforcing the strands to address damage. Like a daily rinse-out conditioner, a salon deep conditioner is rinsed out with water, but it is usually left in place for a longer period of time to allow the hair to fully benefit from its ingredients. Normally, deep conditioners are used periodically, such as weekly, semi-monthly or monthly.
Protecting Hair from Premature Aging
Your hair naturally changes with age, but it's possible for its color and texture to be affected prematurely by exposure to the ultraviolet (UV) radiation of the sun.
