Many of us suffer with dry, damaged hair at some point in our lives. There are many reasons for this; heat damage, over processing through colour or hormonal changes causing our hair to snap.
Some of these things are out of our control but we can help our hair by using the best treatments for dry hair.
Firstly, you need to know if your hair is dry or if it is breaking. If it just feels dry and rough and lacks shine, the damage is only on the surface and you need moisture to help repair and smooth the cuticle. If your hair is snapping off and is very brittle the damage is to the cortex of your hair, and you need a conditioner that will penetrate to the cortex (the inner part of your hair), not just sit on the cuticle (the outside of your hair).
If your hair is just dry and lacks moisture, we recommend Moisture Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner by Joico. This can be used daily and helps inject moisture into dehydrated hair.
Our favourite mask for dry hair is Hydrasource mask by Matrix Biolage. This mask is enriched with Aloe extract and leaves hair feeling smooth and conditioned. Use this mask weekly, after shampooing for best results.
If your hair is breaking off and snapping, we recommend K Pak Deep Penetrating Reconstructor by Joico. This mask has been voted best hair repair treatment 15 years in a row! Its powerful combination of amino acids rebuilds and re-fortifies every strand of hair. It works right in the cortex of the hair, meaning it literally repairs the hair from the inside out. Use this mask at least once a week for best results.
Strong Sexy Hair is the complete range for damaged, breaking hair. The four-step range of shampoo, conditioner, core strength mask and core flex leave in treatment is enriched with Aloe Vera and Mango Butter. This range helps stop breakage by 80% after one use.
For people in a rush use Matrix Miracle Creator Multi Tasking Treatment. This spray in conditioner does not need rinsing and helps prevent damage and is heat protective. Simply spray into your hair after shampooing and conditioning and comb through.
