Fixing Hair Damage in 2022

Heat tools and chemical treatments are the main culprits of hair damage, but other factors can be involved, too, including environmental exposure and even hair type.

Address the cause first, you’ll need to decipher what type of damage the hair is displaying, and what the source of the damage is. If the hair is extremely dry and brittle with no shine, it needs moisture. If the hair breaks easily in addition to being dry, it also needs protein.

Ask questions about what may have caused this damage: Was the hair over processed from chemical services? Were the hot tools used with too high of heat? Is exposure to the sun or other elements a factor?

What Products to Use? Depends on the hair type...

Less heat styling and fewer color services are two ways to give the hair a break, but that’s not quite enough to fix damaged hair. 

There are lots of products available on the marketplace–and even recipes for home treatments–claiming to repair damaged hair, and they fall into three general types you can pick:


Moisturizing Treatments, Protein Treatments and Bond Builders.


What is a moisturizing hair treatment?

A moisturizing hair treatment does to hair what lotion does to the skin—it penetrates the hair cuticle to hydrate and soften. Moisturized hair will look and feel healthier, and will be less prone to damage overall.

Effective moisturizing ingredients include:

  • Avocado oil
  • Almond oil
  • Rosehip oil
  • Aloe vera
  • Argan oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Sunflower seed oil

Moisturizing treatments can be used weekly, or more frequently if the hair is severely damaged, we have the following available:

What is a Protein Hair Treatment?

Protein treatments “boost the hair with a variety of nutrients and proteins to help reconstruct and strengthen hair strands.” Basically, protein treatments fill gaps in the outermost layer of the hair—the cuticle—to harden it, which in turn improves the elasticity, strength and overall appearance of the hair.

Protein treatments should be used more sparingly than moisturizing treatments. It depends on the hair type and type of damage, but in general, in-salon treatments could be used quarterly or even annually, while at-home treatments can be used monthly. We have the following Protein products available:
What is a bond-building treatment?

A bond-builder works similarly to a protein treatment, but it penetrates deeper than the cuticle, reaching the hair’s core to repair. Bond builders work by “linking broken protein bonds in the hair both during and after chemical services to make your hair stronger.” We have the following bonding products available:
