Repair damaged hair

Damaged hair tends to look dull or frizzy and can be difficult to manage but it’s what’s happening to your long-suffering cuticles that needs to be remedied before you can hope to achieve smooth, glossy strands. When healthy, these tile-like cells lie flat and smooth like the scales on a fish, reflecting shine and deep-down nourishment. But as they get more damaged this delicate outer layer develops cracks, lifting up and putting your hair at risk for further visible and invisible breakage. Eek! Strand salvation is only possible with a multi-pronged approach; hydration, damage prevention and the biggest dose of TLC your tresses have ever seen.

How to repair damaged hair: Start with the right shampoo

Hair repair starts with clean hair. You can’t begin to heal damaged hair without ensuring you’ve got freshly cleansed tresses to work with, so it’s key to find the right shampoo that won’t undermine your efforts to rescue your troubled tresses. The wrong shampoo can strip hair of its precious natural oils before you’ve started, so the ultimate hair breakage repair kit includes the kindest formulation you can find. Aussie SOS Kiss of Life Shampoo is rich in the super fruits native to Australia including the rare Tasmanian Pepperberry that has four times the antioxidant power of blueberries. It also happens to smell A-mazing! Think of shampoo as the hair hero that answers your urgent 911 call, setting the follicular foundations for the work to be done.

Hair repair hydration therapy

How to repair damaged hair comes down to one thing, on repeat – hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Got it? Good. The first responder on the hair repair scene is your everyday conditioner. Though, with hair like this, we say ‘everyday’ loosely, as it’s key to avoid drenching your tresses under the shower too often. Over-washing can exacerbate the problem, dehydrating already damaged locks even further, so try to eke out a couple of extra days between shampoos to get you started. Once you’re gently lathered up, rinse off and commence with the vital strand-saving part of the action. The Aussie Repair Miracle Collection with Repair Miracle Conditioner is like a kiss of life – for your unhappy locks.
