Hi, guys! I received a couple of messages about fixing chemically damaged or even burnt hair. Is it possible to make it healthy again? As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, it might be really difficult. Hair that was damaged or bleached hasn’t got the ability to regenerate (it’s not a living tissue, but just a protein filament). There is no one perfect way that will bring health back to your hair. But there are a couple of methods that will help hair to look better. However, you need to follow them regularly- time is definitely your friend in the case of chemically damaged hair.
Adding oils and other emollients to the daily care can visibly improve the look of your hair. These substances cover hair to keep it hydrated and they protect it against damages.
Use some proteins in the conditioner or mask. They will temporarily fill elements that are missing in hair’s structure. Remember: balance is the key- it’s quite easy to overuse proteins.
It’s necessary to regularly cut damaged part of the hair. Otherwise, split ends will travel further up and make hair look even worse.
Yes, your hair really needs that. It’s like a watering a very dry plant. The humectants are hygroscopic substances used to keep hair moisturised.
Silicone serum is another haircare essential. It protects your hair from bad environment factors and keeps hydration in your hair. One drop of serum is usually enough to keep hair healthy for longer. Remember- it must be alcohol-free!
It’s a new but very popular method already. Olaplex is definitely a good idea if your hair was damaged recently. I couldn’t see a big difference after the treatment, but my hair’s condition wasn’t so poor when I tried it. I would probably notice a big change if I had Olaplex treatment straight after bleaching.
Repairing damaged hair always takes some time. It could be a very tough and frustrating problem to solve, but proper and well-balanced care is a key to success. It’s also very important to avoid destructive factors like heating, intensive bleaching etc. That will help your hair to recover and grow healthy.
