Hair Treatment Ideas to Repair and Protect
Every day, we expose our hair to so much stress. Whether it’s heat from blow drying or styling tools, chemicals from hair color, chlorine or saltwater, or something else, our hair puts up with a lot. And after a while, it can all start to take a toll—in the form of breakage, split ends, frizziness, dullness, and more.
But there are plenty of ways to fight back! We’ve gathered 6 of the top hair treatments to help you repair, protect, and strengthen your locks! Test out a hair treatment below to repair existing damage and prevent future damage to your hair.
Pre-Shampoo Hair Treatment
A pre-shampoo (or pre-wash) hair treatment can come in the form of an oil, conditioner, mask, or butter. Just as the name implies, you apply one of these to your wet hair before washing it. Most of them require you to leave them on for 15‒30 minutes before rinsing, shampooing, and conditioning like normal. They are designed to help hydrate, smooth, and tame your hair.
Deep Conditioner or Mask
Similar to the pre-shampoo hair treatment, a deep conditioner or mask is designed mostly to add moisture to your hair. The difference here is that these are meant to be used after shampooing and conditioning—but still rinsed out so they don’t weigh your hair down.
Meant for use after you’ve showered and towel-dried your hair, leave-in conditioners can help detangle and smooth your hair. They can help eliminate frizz and nourish your hair to make it much easier to manage.
Leave-in Products for Dry Hair
Similar to leave-in conditioner, there are a number of other leave-in products that can help smooth, repair, and detangle. These are made with less dense ingredients to help avoid weighing your hair down or making it look greasy.
Oil Hair Treatment
Coconut oil, olive oil, peppermint oil, and jojoba oil—among others—are really useful as once-a-week (or every other week) hair treatments. You can find DIY instructions on how to use these oils online, but for best results, plan to warm up the oil and let it sit on your hair under a cap. Once you rinse it out, your hair should be feeling sleeker, stronger, and much easier to manage.
Hair Treatment Vitamins
Believe it or not—you can actually repair, protect, and strengthen your hair from the inside out. Your hair needs vitamins, nutrients, and hormones in order to grow and maintain its healthy texture and shine. By taking hair treatment vitamins, you can help support this healthy function.
Bonus: The vitamins and nutrients that support healthy hair—like keratin and biotin—can also help improve the texture and appearance of your skin and nails!
