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.

Intense Rx" - replenish keratin lost from your
hair letting you go longer between keratin treatments - and they also stop
most breakage on severely damaged hair. See

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.
