The Best 18 Hairstyles For Damaged Hair

 

Damaged hair can be a source of deep frustration, especially if your hair used to be healthy and beautiful some time ago. This is why, I want to show you which are the best hairstyles for damaged hair, so that you can make your hair look decent while trying to make it healthy again.

So before I get started, let me show you some products that really helped my pretty damaged hair.

What to consider when choosing a hairstyle for damaged hair


 

    1. HAIR LENGTH

best hairstyles for damaged hairProbably the most important thing for 80% of us is the hair length. There are a lot of people who would try all the treatments in the world just to repair their damaged hair, but would never ever agree to cut their hair, even though that would make the process much faster.

This is why, before looking for a hairstyle, you should think about how much of your hair length you’d be ready to give up. It could be a few inches, it could be a bigger length or even nothing. Yes, you’ve read well, there are people who, no matter how damaged their hair is, wouldn’t agree to cut any inch of their hair.

Anyway, it’s each one’s choice, so remember that the first step is thinking about a length that you wouldn’t regret.

 

   2. DAMAGE LEVEL

Another thing that matters when choosing this kind of hairstyles is how damaged your hair is. This is not because you couldn’t choose a certain hairstyle, but because your hair might not look very well with it.

So, the less damaged your hair is, the more options you have. Obviously, for a very damaged hair you won’t have a long list of hairstyles to choose from, but there still remain enough, I would say.

However, this is just a temporary hairstyle, so don’t worry too much about it, after starting treating your damaged hair you’ll probably not need it anymore.

 

   3. HAIR TYPE

Yes, that’s right, your hair type is also very important before picking up the right hairstyle.

  • best hairstyles for damaged hairCurly hair tends to look thicker than it is in reality, so even though your hair might be deeply damaged, it will probably not look that bad, because of its volume. However, in case it still looks with no volume, the only thing you have to do is to brush it a bit, but just a bit.  In this way, it will seem much thicker. This is why, if you have curly damaged hair, you will be able to choose from a wider range of hairstyles, because they won’t look very bad on your hair.
  • Straight hair usually looks more damaged than curly hair, actually it looks as bad as it is unfortunately. I mean, if your hair is very damaged, it will also look so. It’s hard to hide this without choosing a new hairstyle, that would suit it better and would make it look thicker.

 

The Best Hairstyles For Damaged Hair


 

  1. Under Shoulder hairstyles

In case you’re a self-confident courageous person, you might want to take a look at these ones. I thought it would be very hard for someone with damaged hair to cut all her hair and try directly a pixie haircut, so this is why I skipped that type and went straight to the under shoulder hairstyles.

I like to call an “under shoulder” hairstyle every type of haircut that doesn’t reach the shoulder length. It could be a short bob, it could even be an asymmetric haircut that doesn’t hardly touches the shoulders, as long as it’s not longer, it fits into this category. However, I wouldn’t consider the pixie hairstyles as an “under shoulder” haircut, I consider them as belonging to another category.

I’ve tried to select pictures of different haircuts from this type, as you can see many are with celebrities, and you can’t deny that they look great. So keep in mind that this could be a viable solution in case your hair is very damaged.

    2.  Medium (Shoulder length) hairstyles 

These are the perfect choices if your hair isn’t severely damaged or if you simply don’t want to cut your hair very short. There are many people with healthy hair who prefer this type of haircuts, because they are very easy to maintain and they are long enough to allow you style your hair in different manners.

For a damaged hair, a medium haircut would be great because at this length, hair is quite easy to treat, and it can also regenerate, so it has bug chances of growing back healthy and beautiful.

Either you go for a straight, fringe haircut, like Selena Gomez or Naomi Campbell, or you choose a curly hairstyle like Rihanna, medium hair will always look great and less damaged than it really is.

     3.  Past shoulder hairstyles

In case you wouldn’t cut any inch of your hair for the world, there are some options for you too, fewer that’s true, but there are some. However, you should try to keep your hair at the minimum length possible, and by this I mean the minimum length you like. 😀

A good alternative for long damaged hair would be to make some loose curls using different methods without heat, and then easily brush them. In this way your hair will look thicker and end split ends will be harder to notice. Here are some examples:
