Hair Breakage Repair

4 minutes

Have you singed and scorched your silky strands within an inch of their life, and are now thinking that your hair is beyond repair? Fear not. At Aussie, we believe in miracles.

Your hair is a work of art. As with all masterpieces, it needs its share of TLC to take it from ghastly to Van Gogh-ly. No matter how damaged your hair is, we can help you get it back to its former glory with a little Aussie hair repair.

How to fix damaged hair

When you look at your hair’s fried strands, split ends, and lifeless curls, it may be no oil painting but there are ways to bring it back to life. Inevitably, looking at the sad state of your hair sends us on a wild search for answers from “how to fix damaged hair” to “how to treat damaged hair.” But how does hair get damaged, anyway? Sadly, an extreme session with the colourist isn't the only way to ruin your hair. Our hair is exposed to factors that can do this daily – from innocent elements like the sun, wind, and changing seasons to chemical treatments and that inimitable sound of your hair screeching in pain when it’s accidentally singed with a hair tong at home. Ouch!

All the warning signs of damaged hair were there: split ends, breakage and shorter hair at the roots. Dullness and brittle ends. We don’t have to paint you a picture to demonstrate how hair breakage repair works. Reverse the signs of damaged hair with an overhaul to your hair regime that prioritises gentle cleansers, nourishing conditioners and doses of regular hydration for longer, stronger locks. It’s painting by numbers really, and we’re here to show you how. Hair repair is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Step 1. How to fix hair breakage with the right shampoo

Colour-safe, it will never strip the hair, only add moisture back in, so your hair feels smooth, healthy and supple in one wash.

Top hair tip for damaged hair: Avoid detangling when your locks are wet as each tug and pull weakens the hair along its length, so before washing brush out knots to ensure you start with a smooth base.

Now that you have the perfect blank canvas, it’s time to see the big picture and get your conditioning game down.

Step 2. Damaged hair: kick-start hair repair with deep treatments

You don’t need to be using a million products to get the full, shiny hair of your dreams - trust us. Opt for targeted hydrating treatments such as Aussie Moisture Paradise Hair Mask & Cap to do it all at once. So, if you’re searching, ‘How to fix damaged hair?’, this deeply nourishing and restorative hair mask’s a good place to start.

Short of time? Repair your hair and give it a renaissance of its own with the help of the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moisture. Whether it’s heat damaged, colour damaged, or weather damaged; silky, soft, run-your-fingers-through-it hair isn’t beyond reach. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moisture is also enriched with Australian Macadamia Nut Oil.

Step 3. How to treat damaged hair with leave-in treatments

How to fix hair breakage? We’ve got it down to a fine art. Split ends occur when the outer layer of the hair’s cuticle becomes damaged and breaks, which tends to happen when hair is particularly dry. While you can’t technically fix them once the hair splits, you can hydrate your hair enough to make them near invisible, and prevent hair from splitting any further. Zip up split ends and add gloss to parched lengths with Aussie 3 Miracle Lightweight Oil Reconstructor.

Between the soul-sucking heat from the radiators in the winter to scorching temperatures on the beach come summer, and that’s without admitting the truth on your own self-induced hair-frying antics with heated styling tools in between, it’s easy to test your hairs limits without even realising. And no matter how downbeat Mona Lisa looks in Leonardo Da Vinci’s masterpiece, she’d have been more depressed if damaged hair was adding to the issue. Bring hair back to life, and make it your own artistic triumph with Aussie SOS Heat Saviour Conditioning Spray.

With a little help from Aussie, you can get gorgeous, gallery-worthy hair.
