Less Is More: Why Too Much of a Good Thing Can Be Bad for Your Hair

October 18, 2021

Too much of a good thing...isn’t always a good thing. Take your hair, for example. Doing too much of what you consider to be healthy habits can backfire on your locks, leading to dry, dull, damaged hair and even hair loss. Yes, good hair habits can cause hair damage. Not cool, we know!

 

It’s a delicate balance to take care of your hair properly, especially aging hair that needs some extra love. But we have to be careful not to show our hair too much love. Too much washing, brushing and styling can lead to undesirable outcomes, and that’s something no one wants. Here’s what we mean when we’re talking about hair health.

Damaged hair not only looks dull and unhealthy, but it's also likely to feel dry and rough-textured. Thankfully, it's possible to stop these trends in their tracks and prevent future damage. Repairing conditioners help damaged hair by moisturizing and utilizing protein to rebuild gaps in the strands.

How Does a Repairing Shampoo Work on Damaged Hair?

May 21, 2021

If your hair is frizzy, dull, and unruly, it could be because it is damaged. Chemical treatments, high-heat styling, and the inevitable passage of time converge to weaken the structure of your strands. This leads to unsightly split ends and breaking along the hair shaft, which also thins your hair and makes it harder to manage. 

Although nothing can completely bind your strands' layers back together or permanently fix your split ends, repairing shampoos can go a long way toward helping. These hydrating products smooth your hair’s outer layer to improve shine and moisture retention. They also work to fortify your strand composition against future damage.
