Are you noticing a lack of shine, breakage, and an overall feeling of roughness in your hair? You're not alone and these may be signs your hair is over-processed. If you're a bottled blonde who relies on bleaching, dye, and highlights to get your luminous color or if you're using heat tools multiple times a week, then your hair shaft and its fibers are most likely damaged.
Your stylist will be your mentor in reviving your hair to full health, but you also need to do the work at home to invest in your hair's recovery. Here's how you can fix over-processed hair once and for all.
GET A FRESH HAIRCUT.
Any chemical processing damage or split ends that have traveled up your hair shaft won't stand a chance against a fresh haircut. Let your stylist take the lead here (you may have to cut off quite a bit to start anew and to fix your over-processed hair), but you should absolutely speak your mind on the style of cut and what works best for you based on maintenance. FEKKAI has an entire team of experts ready to give you your chicest cut ever.
CHOOSE PRODUCTS THAT WILL PRESERVE YOUR COLOR TO FIX OVER-PROCESSED HAIR.
You won't need to visit the salon as frequently for color treatments if you invest in products that will preserve your color. We created our vibrancy-extending Technician Color collection for this reason, so you can keep your color on point for weeks (and months) to come, as you give your hair a break.
USE A REPARATIVE BALM FOR PROTECTION.
One of the remedies for over-processed hair is infusing moisture back into it. Our Super Strength Roots-to-ends Balm will bring your damaged hair back to life in minutes, as it features a vegan alternative to keratin that helps repair your stressed out strands.
SWAP YOUR CONDITIONER FOR A MASK.
Masks deliver maximum moisture: exactly what you need when your hair has been through it. After you cleanse away any product buildup, skip straight to the mask session to give your strands that dose of TLC they need.
LOOK FOR PRODUCTS THAT CONTAIN SUNFLOWER EXTRACT.
Clean, high-performing ingredients are crucial when repairing your hair and then working to maintain it. Sunflower extract is rich in fatty acids which helps to protect against dryness, makes it a natural protector against UV rays, reduces color fade and brassiness, and nourishes the hair. Luckily, we have it in every product.
