Best hair treatment for damaged hair

best hair treatment damaged hairStyling your hair everyday could actually do it a lot of harm, as you already know, probably. This is why it would be good to try some treatment in order to restore your hair’s health and shine. But which is the best treatment for damaged hair? Something from natural ingredients or a treatment bought right from the shop?

The truth is that in our era there are so many treatments everywhere that we have so many to choose from! We can get one from the beauty shop, from the drugstore, from the pharmacy or even from our home, using natural ingredients.

These are all great alternatives but, as far as I’m concerned, I believe a home-made mask is best hair treatment damaged hairalways the best. You may say that it’s very complicated making it, that the consistency it has is not always the most desirable or that you have to keep it on for a very long time. Yes, that’s true…

But the advantages it has outweigh all these issues. The most important thing is that you know exactly what ingredients you add, unlike the bought treatments, that often contain alcohol, parabens or other extremely dangerous ingredients that could do you more harm than good.Β Home made masks also contains natural, fresh ingredients, and we all know that natural is better than anything.

Therefore, I usually prefer to make a hair mask myself than using one bought from the shop, I’ve tried both versions and I prefer the first one. However, hair treatments from beauty shops are also very good for damaged hair, so it’s all up to you πŸ™‚

In one of my previous posts I’ve presented you the best hair masks for each type of hair. In case you’ve read that post, you may remember that I insisted on using a lot of oils in order to moisturize the hair that is dry and damaged. These are exactly the ingredients the best treatment for damaged hair is based on.

Because they both have nutritive proprieties and work better together than separately in this case. They will properly moisturize the hair and they will also repair split ends (also masking them).

So, except those two oils, you should also add some honey, which is one of the best solutions for damaged hair. Though it will make the hair mask a bit harder to apply, it’s definitely worth it because it will also add shine to your hair, besides hydrating and repairing it.

Something I always add in my hair mask for damaged hair are Vitamins A and E. If I don’t take those vitamins as supplements, I believe it’s good to apply them at least on my hair, in order to make it thicker and to help it grow faster (obviously my biggest obsession :D).

You can also add an egg, both the yolk and the white, if you want to make the maskΒ less thick and easier to apply.

So, let’s find out how to prepare the hair mask:

Depending on your hair’s length and thickness (the longer/thicker the hair, the higher the quantity), you should add around:

3 spoonfuls of olive oil

3 spoonfuls of castor oil

10 drops of Vitamin A and 10 of Vitamin E

2 spoonfuls of honey

one egg

These are the quantities I usually use for my shoulder length hair, so if you have longer hair, you definitely have to change them a bit. But don’t worry, there isn’t a certain quantity you have to add, any of those ingredients can’t harm you, so even a much bigger quantity isn’t wrong πŸ™‚

I usually add the hair masks in my hair by sectioning it from top to bottom and applying it with a small brush. It’s quite an improvised method, but for me it works, so I’m not going to change it.

You should leave it in your hair for at least one hour (2 would be great, 3 would be amazing :D) and then rinse deeply, but deeply, because the honey is pretty difficult to rinse, so make sure you don’t get any small pieces remained in your hair.

As far as I’ve tried, this is definitely the best treatment for damaged hair because it restores your hair’s health much faster than others. However, don’t imagine that you only have to use it once and you’re done with it. It will actually improve your hair’s aspect even after the first use, but there’s still more to go, you should repeat it at least three times in order to get the best results, obviously this depends of how damaged you hair actually is.

So if you have some ambition and some desire to make your hair healthier and to prevent future damage, I say you should give it a try. There’s nothing to lose after all πŸ™‚ If I can ever help you with anything or if you only have some questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me by simply writing a comment and I promise to answer you as soon as I can.

  1. My first impression of your website is very good. I like the subject about the hair treatment and I think about trying it. You explain it very well. I have looked arround your website and you have very good tips. I myself have dry and thin hair so i found enough tips for my hair on your website. Keep up the good work, you really have an awesome website with a great niche

  2. Every time I visit your site it’s better than the last time. It’s coming together great! I really enjoyed reading through this post and I do want to try this for my hair. I’m wondering though if you know if it’d be a good idea to leave the mask in overnight with a shower cap over your head or if it’s better to just do the three hours max you have posted here. Also is this a regular treatment you would do for your hair once a week, twice a week, twice a month. Or would you recommend just doing a couple treatments every time you notice your hair needs some extra work?
    Lastly do you have instructions on how to apply the mask? Do you mat it in, comb it in, apply it just to the ends, or apply it to all of it?
    Sorry for so many questions I just really do want to try this πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, I’m really happy to hear this πŸ™‚

      So, to try to answer all your questions:

      -I’ve never left this mask overnight. In theory, the longer you leave it the better, but I’m a bit worried that it could get more solid and much harder to rinse, as if it wasn’t already too hard to rinse πŸ™‚ I’m saying this because of the honey, though this is just a possibility, I’m not 100% sure,so I may try in the future just to see

      -I would recommend doing it at least once a week for a couple of weeks, even twice a week if you can. Doing it once just when you see that your hair needs extra care wouldn’t help very very much, you have to repeat it at least 3 times in order to see some good results.

      -Applying it all over your hair is much better than only applying it to the ends. In this way you treat all your hair, not only the most damaged part. I usually apply it with a brush after dividing my hair in sections, to make sure I apply it all over my hair.

      Don’t worry about the questions, I’m glad you asked me and I really hope I was of any use πŸ™‚ If you need any other explanation please let me know πŸ™‚

  3. Hey Ashley, I am so going to try your recommended best hair treatment for damaged hair and I am going to browse around your website soon.
    I had such beautiful hair when I was younger. I didn’t have to do anything with it and it looked great all the time. I mean literally nothing except wash it and leave it (didn’t even have to brush it).
    Now I am 36 years old and it is horrible. I have dry hair that is brittle and frizzy. I have tried everything on the shelves at the shops and nothing helps.
    This might just be what I have been looking for. 3 hours it will be lol.
    I’ll be back to let you know if it works for me or not.
