8 Products To Use If You’re Serious About Repairing Processed Hair

Keeping processed hair healthy and moisturized can be a challenge. As you probably know, color can dry out and leave hair brittle. Additional heat styling can zap any remaining moisture that is left. Luckily, there are some great products on the market for adding moisture and repairing processed hair. Here are some we recommend for rejuvenating your colored locks.

Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask

This top-rated recovery hair mask has users gushing over its ability to smooth frizzy hair and be light on the pocketbook. The product is rubbed into hair and allowed to sit for around thirty minutes. Then the hair is rinsed to reveal silky hair.

Alterna The Science of 10 Hair Masque

Alterna Ten Hair Masque is a thick recovery cream that is massaged throughout towel-dried hair. After it is rubbed into the hair, it is combed through for even distribution and left on for up to five minutes, then rinsed. It’s an organic, botanical-based formula that is exceptional in recovering and smoothing dry, over-treated hair.

Aveda Dry Remedy

This hydrating mask can tackle even the driest hair. Aveda’s Deep Moisture complex penetrates deep into each strand of hair to deliver an intense and long-lasting moisture. This once-a-week product is massaged into hair from roots to ends, allowed to sit for up to five minutes then rinsed off. The finished result is healthy-looking, smooth hair.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Night Cap Overnight Perfector

One celebrity that is known for her amazing hair is Jennifer Aniston. She has helped to develop this brand of products called Living Proof that makes stiff, dry hair manageable and soft. Because it is applied and allowed to sit overnight, it works against environmental stresses while you sleep.

Redken All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner

You may think of shampoo and conditioner as products who aren’t exactly friendly to damaged hair. But this shampoo and conditioner duo contains argan oil, which helps to do double duty and make hair silkier and softer.

Julien Farel Vitamin Condition

Treat damaged tresses with an extra dose of vitamins to help repair damaged hair. Instead of being a mask, this product serves to replace your conditioner.

Kevin Murphy Born Again Masque

This rich, thick cream helps to build strength in your hair that has been stripped from highlighting and bleaching. It is a cream that’s applied once a week on towel-dried hair. It’s massaged into the hair then rinsed off. It is full of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin E and B5 that help to leave hair repaired and manageable.

L’oreal Total Repair Extreme Ultra-Concentrated Urgent Repair Care

This repair care product is applied on a weekly basis. Just apply after shampoo and conditioner then rinse. Since damaged and dry hair is most likely damaged just below the hair’s surface, it can result in weak, porous hair that causes split ends. This product helps to strengthen the hair against the external aggressions that cause weak hair.

While sometimes it seems that damaged hair can be a lost cause, there are so many amazing products on the market that can take hair from flab to fab. By investing extra money and time into your hair, you can get it back on track to looking healthy again.
