About the Expert
Hi, I'm Jeremy Clark, professional hairstylist and salon owner, and today I'm going to talk to you about how to repair damaged hair. At home, it's important to look for a shampoo that has nourishing ingredients, something like the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo. It has olive oil, avocado oil and shea butter and these are all things that are going to really moisturize the hair and really help keep the elasticity. Elasticity is important because that is the hair's ability to stretch. The olive oil is going to nourish the interior of the hair, the avocado oil, the middle layer, and the shea butter will smooth out the top layer. And this is really important because your hair needs to be healthy on the inside as well as protected on the inside. For those of you at home that may color your hair, or do any sort of thermal styling be it flat ironing or blow drying, it's important to remember that you need to use a deep conditioner such as a protein conditioner to really fill in those ends, and you can combine the shampoo that you use with a deep protein conditioner, something that will help patch up those ends, and also remember to moisturize. One thing that's important to remember when doing a deep protein conditioner is that you can over proteinize the hair which means the hair will actually become so strong that it becomes brittle and it can break easier. So you have to combine that with a moisture or treatment. So when using a deep protein conditioner, always remember to follow it with a deep moisturizing conditioner. That'll help keep the hair soft and healthy. One other tip, you can always use a little bit of heat to help your conditioners really penetrate into the hair shaft. The heat helps the hair open up and accept whatever you're putting into it. If you do these three things, your hair will end up beautiful, shiny, bouncy, with lots of body. One trick I like to do at home is using a shower cap over the conditioner. You can actually heat it up a little bit with a blow dryer and then let it set for twenty minutes, then rinse it out and that'll really, really deep moisturize your hair. There ya go, that's how to repair damaged hair. I'm Jeremy Clark, thanks for watching!
