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 and feeling 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 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 Daily Treatment 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
