Over Treated Hair Care:  
We have so many options for changing or "improving our hair." Women every love to dye their hair, get highlights, or get a perm, relaxing treatment or a Keratin Hair Straightening. By getting these treatments done too frequently or in combination with each other, you can seriously damage your hair. The result of this is what we call "over-treated hair". The leading cause of hair loss in women is Over-Treated, or Over-Processed Hair.

If your hair has been severely damaged by perms, relaxers, or color treatments, avoid the processes for a while, until you're hair has returned to a healthy state. There are many products that can help your hair regain it's health and beauty. The first step to healing your damaged hair is determining what kind of damage your hair has and what the true cause of the damage is. Is your hair damaged because you dye it too often? Or is it damaged because you had it colored and you flat iron it everyday without using a flat iron protection spray?


Once you have determined that your hair has been over-treated, it is important to remember that you cannot reverse the damage that has been done. The only way to truly "un-do" the damage, would be to shave off your hair and start growing it again from "scratch". But how many of use would be willing to shave our heads, no matter how damaged our hair is? There are, however, steps you can take to help your hair heal, to a certain extent, and steps you can take to prevent this from happening again.

more Tips for helping with Over Treated Hair:
* Comb Your Hair. Use your fingers or a wide toothed comb to sort out tangled hair while it's still wet. Using a conditioning detangling spray can also be very useful. It will make it easier to get snarls and knots out of your hair, while adding extra moisture, which you probably need anyway. Start at the ends, tips, of the hair and slowly and gently work your way up to the scalp. Do not use a brush! Brushes can damage and break hair that is perfectly healthy; imagine the damage it can do to over-treated hair!

*Get a good shampoo. Many people who have over-treated or over-processed hair think that one of the ways to get it to heal faster is by not shampooing the hair. By not shampooing the hair, you are allowing pollution, oils and any products you might be using to build up on your hair. This can prevent new growth from occurring, which can result in thinning hair. By shampooing the hair you are refreshing your hair and you gain an opportunity to add moisture, and essential vitamins and oils back into your hair. Shampooing daily can be compared to washing your face daily. You need to wash your face everyday to remove all of the oil and grim that settles onto it each day. To prevent your skin from drying out, you buy cleansers that are compatible to your skin type, and maybe you use a moisturizer. The same practices need to be applied to your hair. Make sure you are using a shampoo that is sulfate-free and salt-free. These ingredients are actually abrasive when used in shampoo and can cause further damage to your hair.

*Condition. Condition. Condition. Do we have to say it again? Condition! One of the biggest ways that people know their hair has been over-processed is because it is suddenly frizzy and dry. Again, look for a conditioner that is sulfate-free and salt-free, for the same reasons when mentioned with regards to shampoo. Follow the directions on the bottle. After shampooing, step out from under the water and squeeze as much water out of your hair as possible. Then, evenly apply the conditioner to the entire hair and scalp. If you want to make sure the conditioner is evenly distributed, use a wide tooth comb to evenly comb the conditioner through the hair. Give the conditioner time to penetrate to the core of the hair shaft, usually this is 2-5 minutes. Be sure to thoroughly rinse the hair. You should condition your hair every time you shampoo your hair.

*Invest in a Hair Mask (Masque). Shampooing and conditioning your hair is probably not going to be enough to help your hair heal. Spending some extra money on a great hair repair mask is a must if your hair been over-treated or over-processed. A hair mask works kind of like a hair conditioner, with some exceptions. Hair masks should be used less frequently than hair conditioners because they are "heavier" than normal conditioners. A hair mask can also be used with a heat aide, like a professional heat cap, which helps expand the hair, making it easier for the hair mask to penetrate deep to the hair core.

*Still Using Heat Styling Tools? If you've determined that your hair is over-treated or over-processed and you're still blow-drying or flat ironing or curling your hair, make sure you use a thermal protectant. Even if your hair was healthy and not over-treated, you should use a thermal protectant spray or blow-dry creme to protect your hair from the damage too much direct heat can cause.

  • 1-Avoid blow-drying if at all possible, since this is a great way to suck the moisture out of your hair and promote frizz. If you can, wash your hair in the evening so it can dry naturally and be styled the next morning. If you must blow-dry, be sure to hold the dryer above your head, pointing at a downward angle toward the hair; by drying the hair in one direction you help prevent frizz and fly-aways. Be sure to hold the drier at least 12 inches from the hair; if the air feels too hot on your skin (check it with your hand) either you're holding the dryer too close or you need to switch to a lower heat setting.  OR
  • 2- Try one of the few  "I can have my cake and eat it to" solutions that really works get a  Keratin Hair Treatment or do a Keratin Hair Treatment at Home.


*Find the Right Products! While over-treated hair is usually defined by lacking moisture, it can also have other faults as well. Dry hair can become frizzy, dull, unruly, etc. Find the right products for what your over-treated hair symptoms. If your hair is frizzy, there are hair oils and anti-frizz serums, balms and creams that can help. If your hair is dull, there are shine sprays and serums that can help. It is important to remember that your frizz or dull hair is occurring due to over-processing and that the best way to remedy these problems is to shampoo, condition and use and masque. However, these products are a great quick fix, as it can take some time for the conditioning treatments to become effective.
