How To Repair Damaged Hair

StyledByAveda Tanvii.com 5

When it comes to hair, smooth and shiny is my ultimate beauty goal. But every now and then I get derailed from my goals either due to coloring or over styling. Lately, the reason has been the color and change in weather. There has been excessive hair fall which has got my danger antennas up. 

Some of the other signs from damaged hair I had noticed were dullness, dryness, unmanageability, roughness, and split ends. And until last month, I felt I was suffering from all of them. I decided to take charge and started first with them home remedies (hair oil and hair masks) following up with deep conditioner and shampoo. Lately, no matter which shampoo I tried my hair fall would not stop but having read positive reviews I decided to give L’Oreal Elvive Repair 5 hair care products a shot, with much reluctance, I must add.

A month later, I am happy to inform that there is a noticeable difference in my hair-fall and overall health of my hair. Below are some of the actions I took to repair my damager hair back to life:

1. Switch to a system of hair care products formulated for damaged hair. Look for a shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask formulated for damaged hair, like 
Make sure to gently massage the shampoo into your hair rather than harshly rub it in. Swap out the conditioner for the hair mask once or twice a week, leaving it on for 3-5 minutes before rinsing out. You can even use it as a pre-shampoo hair mask for added conditioning or detangling.

2. Pay attention to how you heat style. If you’re going to style your hair with a blow-dryer, curling iron, or flat iron, you should use the lowest heat setting, limit the amount of time your heat tool touches your hair, and try to use these styling tools as infrequently as possible. When you do heat style your hair, make sure to apply a heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, first.

3. Air dry hair when you can. You don’t have to sacrifice your style. Spritz the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray onto damp hair, then let your hair air dry for beachy-waves. For more defined waves, braid your hair after spraying it, then undo the braid once your hair has dried.

4. Be gentle when hair is wet. Don’t reach for a brush right after hopping out of the shower. If you have straight hair, allow your hair to air dry for a while before combing it—very, very gently—with a wide tooth comb. Meanwhile, if you have textured hair or tight curls you should always use a wide tooth comb to comb hair—and you should do this while hair is damp. Also quit rubbing your wet hair with a towel. Instead, either wrap your hair in a towel, which will help absorb the water, or simply let your hair air dry.

5. Keep it loose. As far as hair styles go, opt for loose hairstyles instead of tight ones, or wear one that doesn’t require you to pull on your hair. Need some ideas? Here are my go-to-hairstyles I wear year-round. When tying your hair back, use a rubber band that is covered and specifically designed for hair styling.


I have seen positive results in using the Elvive Total Repair 5 products in the past few weeks and am trying to incorporate the above tips in my own lifestyle. Let me know if you find this post helpful and in the mean time you can enter L’Oreal’s #StopWaiting sweepstakes here for a chance to win big.

Some of the top causes of damaged hair include excessive use of heat tools like blow-dryers and curling irons, brushing your hair while it’s wet (since that’s when hair is at its most fragile), over-processing hair with color, and pulling your hair back into super-tight hairstyles.

Now that you know what causes damaged hair, you can put together a hair care routine to help prevent damaged hair as well as revive the appearance of hair that is already damaged.

  9. I haven't used these products yet, but they definitely sound intriguing. My hair was damaged for years because of box-coloring and bleaching and using so many heat tools. But thankfully, my hair dresser has gotten it back to a really healthy state. However, it's always good to continue using quality products to maintain it!
