One question we get over and over
again involves repairing damaged
hair. It usually goes something like this:
Even if the damage you've done to your hair can't be completely
repaired, it often can be mitigated so that, at least, you don't lose
your hair. We can't guarantee that the following techniques will
repair the damage. But, they will give you the best chance.
First of all we recommend a deep conditioning treatment. You can
find some here
. Treasured Locks Hot Hair Repair and
Deep V Conditioner (both avaiable on the page linked to) are two great
choices. Used along with a conditioning
that allows the product's ingredients and warm moisture to
penetrate the hair shaft, a deep conditioning treatment done every
couple of weeks for a while can help quite a bit.
In addition to the deep conditioning treatment, we suggest (as always)
that you wash with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. Also,
make sure you are moisturizing your hair regularly between
washings. Two or three times a week is not too much for most
African American hair. We like our Treasured Locks Nourishing
Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner for that. If your hair is
pressed or you flat iron you hair you might want to use Treasured Locks
H2G Hair Growth Serum instead (doesn't contain water that would cause
your hair to revert).
There is no magic cure to repair any damage done to your hair.
But, by following these steps you can possible reverse some of the
damage. And by doing regular maintenance on your hair, avoiding
overlapping chemical treatments and using a minimal amount of heat you
can prevent the damage from occuring.
