What really causes bad hair? In short, all roads lead back to damage. Damaged hair happens as a result of mistreatment over time. The cuticle gradually wears away, exposing the inner cortex, which slowly degrades. This leads to visible damaged hair, including hair breakage and split ends. But don’t worry! You can still fix damaged hair if you follow the steps below.
3 Ways to Fix Damaged Hair
Step 1: PREP YOUR HAIR
Pantene’s shampoos and conditioners, like the Repair & Protect Collection, add a special layer of protection with the antioxidant damage-blocking technology that helps prevent the buildup of damaging minerals.
Step 2: TURN DOWN THE HEAT
Heat is one of the most damaging things to your hair. Minimizing damage by air-drying hair up to 80% before turning on the heat, and hold the blow-dryer several inches away from hair. If you use a flat iron, pass it through hair quickly so that the heat is not concentrated in one area for too long.
Protect your hair: When you do need to use heat, use damage protectors like Pantene’s BB Creme to protect strands.
Step 3: GIVE YOUR HAIR SOMETHING SPECIAL
Repair treatments, like Pantene’s Overnight Miracle Crème, can temporarily help repair damaged hair between washes so you wake up to restored, silky hair.
