The Best Hair Care Routine for Damaged Hair

If your hair looks and feels depleted, then this guide is for you. Drawing inspiration from the lush and healthy Italian landscape, where Rossano Ferretti Parma has its roots, we would like to help you restore your hair so that it radiates beauty and well-being. But to provide you with solutions, it’s important that you know what causes damaged hair and the extent of the damage that you’re working with.

How does hair get damaged?

Hair damage occurs when “aggressors” attack the cuticle (the outer layer) of your hair, leaving cracks in the surface. These aggressors can include:

  • Over-washing
  • Products with harsh chemicals
  • Brushing your hair roughly and excessively
  • Saltwater and chlorine
  • Cheap DIY color treatments
  • Bleach
  • Hot styling tools
  • UV rays
  • Air pollution
  • Dry air

Overexposure to any of these aggressors can leave your hair more prone to breakage, creating what may seem like a never-ending hair nightmare.

What does damaged hair look like?

Hair damage can affect hair types differently, but most people are left with dry, brittle, and dull tresses that are hard to tame and even harder to accept.

If your hair is frizzy, coarse to the touch, and lacks vibrancy, then it’s possibly damaged and in dire need of some tender love and care.

How can I repair damaged hair?

The good news is that you don’t have to succumb to having broken, untameable hair forever. By adjusting your hair care routine and treating yourself to the best luxury hair care products, you can have supple, enriched locks that are worthy of a day out e.v.e.r.y day!

  • Avoid washing your hair too often – When you wash your hair more than 2-3 times a week, you prevent your natural hair oils from nourishing your locks, which can leave them dry and vulnerable.
  • Put down the hot styling tools – Your hairdryer, straightener and curling tongs don’t have to be thrown out altogether but do try to give your tresses a chance to dry naturally as often as possible (so that you don’t become a victim of heat damaged hair).
  • Wash your hair with a sulfate-free shampoo – Sulfates work magic at cleansing hair, but they can also strip the healthy hair oils from your locks while they’re at it. The best shampoo for damaged hair is a sulfate-free brand that moisturizes as it cleanses (try our delectable Vita Rejuvenating Shampoo, perfect for fragile, thinning or ageing hair).
  • Use a professional detangler brush – A premium quality brush will help you to loosen knots without breaking your hair. It’s also important that you don’t over brush your hair and that you apply each stroke gently, focusing on your ends first before brushing downwards from your roots.

  • Appreciate the power of protection –Our very own award-winning Prodigio Regenerating Oil is the best treatment for damaged hair because it repairs and protects in one. By using it daily, you can seal split ends and provide protection for healthy, silky hair.
