It’s easy to damage your hair, but not so easy to make it healthy again. Whether you have thermally damaged, moisture starved, over processed or just naturally dry, frizzy hair, you’re in the right place! We’ll give you insight into helping your hair look and feel its best.

Determine The Source of Hair Damage

When it comes to damaged hair, your first order of business is to establish the type of damage.

Have you been using that flat iron too much or been skimping on your heat protectant? If this sounds like you, your hair is likely suffering from thermal damage.

Or perhaps you have chemical damage?  Have you bleached your hair one too many times or gotten color service after overlapping color service?  Well, then you fit the criteria of chemical damage.

Keep in mind some hair types are just naturally drier and frizzier – think natural blondes and curlier, kinkier hair textures.

And lastly, if you’ve been overly aggressive with styling your hair with overly tight ponytails, brushing into oblivion or not detangling your hair properly prior to styling, then you could have mechanical damage.

No matter the type of damaged hair you have, we are here to help!

DIY Treatments Vs. Professional Products

Although there are countless at-home remedies to combat damage, not everyone has the time or creativity to follow through.

Sure those age-old DIY hair treatments like a milk and honey mask or an apple cider vinegar rinse provide some benefits, those results can be a hit or miss according to your hair type and sensitivity.

Professional haircare products like Saints & Sinners not only have a proven history of accomplishing the great results you’re after with no kitchen chemistry required!

What Products To Use

When it comes to all kinds of damage, moisture will be your new best friend.  Let your hair type guide you in determining whether your hair recovery should only consider moisture or layer in ingredients for strength as well.

Finer hair Types 1 and 2, or hair that fits under the chemical damage umbrella, should focus on moisture and protein.  Types 3 and 4 can focus more on moisture for recovery unless extremely over-processed then one should layer in a healthy dose of protein as well.

A good starting point is to use plenty of leave-in conditioner and find a gentle, pH balanced shampoo and conditioner.  Velvet Divine Leave-In Conditioner coupled with the Velvet Divine Moisture Shampoo and Velvet Divine Daily Conditioner will keep hair moisturized and at its healthiest best.

If your hair needs additional moisture, you can switch out that daily conditioner for a masque several times a week, depending on how often you shampoo. We recommend Saints & Sinners Velvet Divine Hair Masque as it suits all hair damage, hair types and is the perfect balance of much needed moisture and protein.

Avoid Heat Appliances

By simply giving those strands a break from heat appliances, you’ll eliminate the issues thermal styling can create. Consider using a microfiber towel to dry freshly washed hair and pat dry, never rub to keep those ends from fraying.  Embrace air drying to avoid using a blow-dryer post-shower.  If you do need to blow dry, turn down that heat setting and air intensity, or just move the blow dryer farther away from your head.

Avoid Frequent Washes

Another tip to speeding up hair recovery time is to avoid washing your hair daily, as your hair naturally produces oils which helps manage moisture levels and minimize hair breakage. Over washing your hair will remove that protective sebum and can similarly affect your scalp health. A safe bet is to wash your hair once every 1-2 days or create a wash schedule tailored to your hair type if you have more oily hair.

If you’re struggling with going longer between wash days, use a dry shampoo such as Saints & Sinners Superfresh Divine Dry Shampoo.

Although recovery time will vary according to the severity of damage and hair type, everyone has to start somewhere. Now’s the time to begin to build healthy hair habits for the long run!
