Repair Damaged Hair

The sun not only causes damage to you hair, but if you color it, it can also cause the color to fade. The sun combined with the chemicals in hair dye dries hair out immensely. Drinking plenty of H2O can keep the body and hair moisturized, but sometimes you need a little extra help. Kiehl’s has a great product for that. It’s called Sunflower Color Preserving Deep Recovering Pak ($26). It hydrates your hair while preventing the color from fading.

This conditioner contains Sunflower oil and Apricot Kernel oil to help not only prevent damage, but also repair what’s been done. If you like the treatment you’ll probably also like their Sunflower Color Preserving Shampoo ($18 & $28) and Conditioner ($19 & $30) . The Kiehls products contain natural ingredients and go a long way protecting the skin and hair.

The Brazilian Blowout

Dry, damaged and frizzy hair can be a major pain, especially in the summer when the humidity makes it almost impossible to keep your locks smooth. On my last trip to the hair salon I came across a pamphlet about Brazilian Blow outs. It couldn’t have been more eye-catching. The Brazilian blow out offers healthier hair after just one treatment with no damaged being to your hair what so ever.

The blow out is supposed to give you frizz-free hair for up to 12 weeks. While the treatment takes up to 90 minutes to complete, if the results are as great as promised then the time is well worth it. Along with the treatment, there is a line of products especially made to maintain the strength of your hair. The website doesn’t name a pricee for the treatment, but it’s supposed to be around $350. Of course it’ll most likely also depend on your type of hair and length. This is a large investment to make in your hair, but if nothing else has worked then it might be a good idea to give this a try.

The competitor of the Brazilian blowout is the Japanese straightening method. Both treatments are said to bond damaged hair leave you with a frizz-free scalp. Although both methods straighten the hair, the Brazilian says it will leave you with natural body and volume. Some reviews on the Japanese straightner say that you get more of the pin straight look and will lack in volume.  Before trying either of the treatments it’s best to do your research and consult with a stylelist that specializes in it.
