Raise your hand if…
I am sure you saw a pattern as you were reading that. If you did raise your hand a lot and have healthy hair you are an anomaly. However, it is safe to say that for the rest of us we have unhealthy, frizzy/fuzzy, or possibly difficult to style hair. Generally speaking, wear and tear impacts the outer layer of hair. Whereas chemical services effect the inner layer**. It’s a lot easier to prevent damage then it is to reverse it. That is why we love Aveda’s Damage Remedy line. It helps to combat environmental, physical, and chemical damage. The main ingredient is a protein called quinoa which helps to strengthen the hair strand. It also has naturally derived oils to boost your natural hairs defense system. In the line there is a shampoo and conditioner for everyday use. The Intensive Restructuring Treatment which is a deep conditioning masque which replaces your everyday conditioner. Daily Hair Repair, a multi-use product, is a great heat protectant (super important). Split End Repair will help to smooth down the cuticle, add protein, and help prevent future split ends. However, if the ends of your hair start to look like a witch’s broom the only true way to fix your hair is a good old fashion haircut.
**Interesting fact… Some people have 2 layers to their hair where some have 3 layers. What?! Yes, everyone has a cuticle which is the outer layer. Then we all have a cortex, but some also have a medulla. No, not the medulla oblongata. Generally, a person who has the medulla layer has thick and/or dark hair.
