During my most recent hair cut and colour, I was chatting with my stylist about hair damage repair remedies. I wanted to know how I could hydrate my hair at home and how do I get REALLY healthy hair. She gave me some amazing tips to fix hair breakage and they’re surprisingly simple. I’ve put them to the test over the last month and I’m sharing the details below.
What is the Best Product for Hair?
If you want to hydrate your hair at home, these three products will provide the best hair moisturizing treatment:
Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3
Olaplex No. 3 already had a cult-like following, and for good reason. It’s a treatment known to reduce breakage, repair damage and protect hair structure.
Evo The Great Hydrator Moisture Mask
This intense hydrating treatment was created to deeply moisturize, soften, reduce frizz and add shine while helping to detangle and improve manageability.
R+Co Centerpiece All-in-One Hair Elixir
The Centerpiece elixir is a lightweight, multi-tasking styling spray that is packed with rich oils to detangle, help fight frizz and hydrate while repairing and fortifying hair.
What is the best hair repair treatment?
Now the trick, (and I feel like it’s a bit of a secret weapon) is HOW you use these hair products to make your hair healthy. Rather than use them separately, COMBINE the Olaplex No. 3 and Evo Hydrator Moisture Mask. You read that right. Combine them using a ratio of about 1:3 or 1:4 Olaplex to Evo.
This will maximize the strengthening benefits of the Olaplex (and use less product) while being locked into your hair cuticles by the intense hydrating treatment of the Evo Moisture Mask. It’s a game changer. And of course, use them properly. Ensure you dampen your hair, towel dry it, then massage the hair product throughout. It’s recommended that you leave it on for a minimum of 10 minutes. I leave it on for as long as I can, usually 15 minutes. Shampoo and condition your hair as usual.
Once you’re out of the shower and have towel dried your hair, spray on the R+Co Elixir and comb through. The all-in-one elixir does just that: heat protectant, damage-deterring detangling treatment, a styling cream or serum, and a finishing product. Plus, it smells AMAZING.
How do I get really healthy hair?
In addition to these amazing hair repair treatments, there are a few other ways to get really healthy hair.
Wash your hair less
I went from washing my hair 2-3 times per week to now washing it once a week. Constant washing strips hair of its natural oils and is the fastest way to damage it.
Change your diet for healthy hair
Add Omego 3 and other healthy fats like fish, eggs, avocado, and nuts to your diet to really see your hair shine. You’ll notice it right away! And cut out sugar, processed food and junk. The first place a bad diet shows up is in your skin and hair.
It might seem counterintuitive but if you go for regular trims, your hair will look healthier and grow stronger. If you’re looking for the best treatment for dry, damaged hair try the repair remedies above and let me know how it worked for you.
