Even the simplest lifestyle habits can begin to damage your hair. We’re talking everyday things like brushing your hair, heat styling to spending long hours in the sun. The damage goes beyond just split ends and could include cracks in the outermost layer of your hair i.e. the cuticle. The open, irregular cuticles are the prime offenders for bad hair days as it eventually leads to breakage, dullness and frizz.  
To roll back the damage, discover five powerful strength boosters that will repair and nourish your hair at every step of your routine. From nourishing shampoos to revitalizing masks, these solutions will fortify your locks, promoting resilience and shine.

This gentle Rene Futerer shampoo is packed with keratin, a protein naturally found in the hair’s structure to improve texture and strength. With every cleanse, it heals the hair fibres, fills cracks and repairs damage. Camelina oil and omega-3 fatty acids ensure that your hair stays hydrated and nourished.

This hair care brand goes back to its origins and captures the Scandinavian philosophy with hair care products that are minimal and effortless. The Sachajuan Intensive Repair Conditioner makes it to the top of their bestselling list as it repairs damaged and dry hair that’s frequently exposed to the sun, thanks to their signature Ocean Silk Technology and UV protectants.

You’ve loved using Olaplex in the salon. The Nº.3 Hair Perfector is the at-home pre-shampoo treatment to repair hair that’s been exposed to heat styling or chemical treatments.

For repair that works while you work, Milkshake’s Leave-in Incredible Milk should make it to your hair care shelf. This natural, leave-in spray works on all hair types to protect it from UV rays, control frizz and nourishes it thanks to vitamin A.
