10 Simple Ways To Repair Damaged Hair

Styling, colouring, and other environmental factors can take a toll on your hair, resulting in lifeless and damaged hair. With the right approach, you can reverse damaged hair and restore healthy, nourished hair. 

Here at Phimedy, we believe in healthy hair that shines from within. That’s why we have compiled 10 simple steps to repair damaged hair.

1. Don’t overwash your hair:

Frequent washing can strip off natural oils, resulting in dry hair. Consider washing your hair 2-3 times a week. It is advised to use lukewarm water for washing your hair, as hot water will do no good and instead make your hair more dry. On days you don't wash your hair, opt for using a dry shampoo to keep it looking fresh and clean.

2. Regular trims are essential:

Trims help maintain healthy hair. It is very important to cut those split ends, as they indicate damaged hair. They travel upwards, causing breakage and making your hair look frizzy and unhealthy. Don’t fear getting a trim; even a small amount can make a big difference! Removing split ends will not only make your hair look healthier but also prevent the damage from travelling up the hair shaft, leading to more severe breakage.

3. Be Gentle When Detangling:

Never rip through knots with a brush! Always use a wide-tooth comb for detangling brushes and start from the ends, working your way up gradually. Additionally, consider using a detangling spray to make the process easier and less damaging.

4. Healthy Hair Starts from Within:

Make sure you're eating a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals that promote hair health. Foods high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, walnuts, and flaxseeds, can help strengthen your hair. Healthy hair starts from the inside out.

5. Use a Gentle Shampoo and Conditioner:

One of the first steps to repairing damaged hair is to switch to a gentle, sulphate-free shampoo and conditioner. Look for products that contain nourishing ingredients like keratin, argan oil, and coconut oil, which can help strengthen and moisturise your hair. Avoid shampoos with harsh chemicals and opt for those specifically designed for damaged hair. Try Phimedy’s Strength Boost Shampoo.

6. Go Easy on Heat Styling:

It's hard to resist those curling irons and blow dryers, but high heat is one of the biggest culprits for hair damage. To repair your hair, try to reduce your use of these tools as much as possible. When you do need to use heat styling tools, always apply a heat protectant spray to shield your hair from high temperatures.

7. Protect From the Elements:

When spending time outdoors, wear a hat or scarf to shield your hair from the sun's harmful UV rays. You can also use hair products that contain UV filters for added protection. Additionally, consider using a hair serum or hair oil to create a barrier against pollution and harsh weather conditions.

8. Give Your Hair a Break:

Tight hairstyles like ponytails and braids can put stress on your hair, especially if it's already damaged. For a gentler alternative, try looser styles like loose buns or headbands. Even better, consider protective styles that completely cover your hair and minimise manipulation. Braids with extensions and twists are all great options.

9. Sleep on Silk:

Cotton pillowcases can actually cause a lot of friction against your hair as you toss and turn throughout the night, leading to breakage and frizz. Switch to a silk or satin pillowcase to let your hair glide smoothly and wake up with less bedhead.

10. Consider Professional Treatments:

If your hair is severely damaged, it might be wise to seek professional help. They can assess the damage and recommend targeted treatments or products to get your hair back on track. Professional treatments can be more effective than at-home remedies, offering longer-lasting results.

With these simple Phimedy-recommended tips, you'll be able to restore your hair's youthful shine, strength, and manageability in no time. Be patient, and give your hair the time it needs to recover and thrive. With a little love and attention, you can achieve healthy, beautiful hair that turns heads!
