How to treat damaged hair

We all suffer from damaged hair now and then. Coloured, straightened, chemically treated, backcombed... it goes through a lot, so it’s no wonder it can sometimes be left crying out for some love. Bring damaged hair back to its silky, healthy-looking best with our guide to ultimate hair repair.

    Fortify coloured hair

    Colouring can weaken hair. Now obviously we couldn’t swear off experimenting, so make up for it with a shampoo designed for coloured hair like Dove Nutritive Solutions Colour Care Shampoo and Conditioner to provide it with nourishment and help your colour stay vibrant for longer.

    Turn to treatments

    Brittle hair needs to be fortified to make it strong and healthy-looking again. Try our Nutritive Solutions Intensive Repair Conditioner, which with regular use, progressively nourishes deep inside the hair strands.

    Turn to oils

    If we could only take one hair product on holiday, it’s hair oil. It helps prevent hair absorbing salt and chlorine, plus it’s perfect for taming frizz and keeping our locks looking sleek and glossy – even on humid days

    Beat the heat

    As for thermal styling – always spritz a heat protection spray over hair first to help protect it from the stress of your tongs, hairdryer, rollers or straighteners

    Nourish hair back to life

    For extremely damaged hair, use a deep conditioning treatment like our Dove Nutritive Solutions Intensive Repair Treatment Mask at least twice a week until your hair is on the mend to help keep it strong and resistant to breakage
