How to Revive Dull, Damaged Strands

Are your locks looking limp and lackluster? Here's how to repair dull, damaged hair and restore your strands back to a silky, smooth state.

Step 1: Moisturize
If your hair feels dry and crunchy, it's a tell-tale sign it's yearning for some TLC. Great hair care starts in the shower, so choose a hydrating cleanser and conditioner set that will give your tresses a moisturized foundation. Try: L'Oreal Paris EverStrong Hydrate Shampoo and C0nditioner.
Step 2: Use a deep conditioner
Hair that is on the mend needs to be strengthened from within. Twice a week, massage a reconstructing deep conditioner into your scalp to stimulate blood flow, and into your strands to better penetrate the core.  Try: Kerastase Masque Force Architecte.
Step 3: Beat the heat
Thermal styling is brutal on your strands. Whether your tool of choice is a flat iron, curling iron, hot rollers, or blow dryer, know this: Your hair isn't built to withstand high temperatures on a daily basis. Prevent future damage by misting your mane with a protection spray before heat-styling. Try: Sultra Heat Safe Protective Spray.
Step 4: Always Leave-In a Little Something Extra
Leave-in conditioner shields hair from natural elements while also working overtime to repair damage. For a bit of additional oomph, palm a nourishing shine serum through your strands for a boost of brilliance. Try: Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave-In Conditioner and Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil.
