The 6 Products You Need to Repair Damaged Hair

Whether it’s from color processing or hot styling tools, damaged hair requires more TLC, which may involve adding a few extra steps into your normal routine. But, it will pay off. Strong, healthy locks are always more beautiful than frizzy, lackluster ones, and these six products can help you get them. 

1/6

Living Proof Restore Shampoo and Conditioner

Use this duo to rejuvenate dull, tired and broken locks that look dry and brittle (the brand claims they increase hair’s resistance to breakage by up to nine times). A unique moisture-controlling molecule, PolyfluoroEster, restores hair’s protective layer, shielding strands from damage-inducing elements. The result: stronger, smoother, shinier hair. $28 each, sephora.com

2/6

Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Mask

Every woman with damaged hair needs an intensive hair mask in their beauty arsenal. This ultrahydrating one is packed with the brand’s signature macadamia oil, as well as argan oil, both of which are rich in omega fatty acids that encourage healthy hair. Use twice a week—after shampooing, apply and leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse out. $36, macadamiahair.com

3/6

Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair

Chock-full of certified organically derived quinoa protein, which helps repair damaged hair from the inside out, this daily leave-in treatment keeps strands protected from environmental and heat-styling stress that can leave your hair looking and feeling subpar. $29, nordstrom.com

4/6

R+Co One Prep Spray

Think of this spray as a primer for your hair, the same way you’d use one to prep your skin for makeup. It will help detangle and smooth your strands so they are ready and better protected for styling. Plus, it works to balance the porosity of your hair, which allows the products you put on afterward (think styling creams, hairspray etc.) to better adhere. $20, randco.com

5/6

Oribe Split End Seal Beautiful Color Treatment

We all know that split ends can be the determining factor as to whether hair looks beautiful and healthy or dull and stringy. Designed for color-treated hair that’s been damaged due to processing, this split end–mending serum works to bond frayed ends together while preventing new ones from forming. $46, oribe.com

6/6

Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray

Superhot styling tools can destroy hair, and in some cases, even break it off completely. With its extremely high level of thermal protection (up to 428 degrees), the brand claims this spray reduces hair breakage by 87 percent while boosting it with moisture and nutrients for stronger, smoother hair. $25, beauty.com
