Healthy Hair after Product and Styling Damage

Over-styling of hair is one of the more common causes of damaged hair, brittle hair and temporary hair loss. Ironically, the things that we do to make our hair beautiful—coloring, perming, highlighting, over-washing, drying, flat-ironing, curling, brushing, and using endless styling products—can also ultimately damage it leading to hair loss.

Natural Remedies for Damaged Hair and Hair Loss

Try these natural remedies to help repair damaged hair, reverse hair loss, prevent future hair loss and encourage healthy hair growth.


Try these home remedies.

Raw egg conditioner. The yolk, rich in fats and proteins, is naturally moisturizing, while the white, which contains bacteria-eating enzymes, removes unwanted oils. For normal hair, use the entire egg to condition hair; use egg whites only to treat oily hair; use egg yolks only to moisturize dry, brittle hair. Use 1/2 cup of whichever egg mixture is appropriate for you and apply to clean, damp hair. If there isn’t enough egg to coat scalp and hair, use more as needed. Leave on for 20 minutes, rinse with cool water and shampoo hair again. Whole egg and yolks-only treatments can be applied once a month; whites-only treatment can be applied every two weeks.

Honey massage. Honey is a natural humectant, which attracts and locks in moisture helping to combat dryness and damage due to hard water, sun overexposure, blow dryers and flat irons. Massage approximately 1/2 cup honey into clean, damp hair, let sit for 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water. You can also add 1 to 2 Tbsp olive oil to loosen the honey for easier application. For extremely sun-damaged hair, trying mixing honey with 1 to 2 Tbsp of a protein-rich ingredient, like avocado or egg yolk, which will help replenish the keratin protein bonds that UV rays attack. Treatment can be applied once a month.

Baking soda buildup remover. The sodium bicarbonate in baking soda breaks down anything acidic. Mix 1 to 2 Tbsp baking soda with small amounts of water until a thick paste forms. Massage into damp hair and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse with water, then shampoo hair. Treatment can be applied every two weeks.


Use organic shampoos.

Many hair products - shampoos, conditioners and hair colorants - often contain harmful chemicals and ingredients that strip or damage hair and may even cause hair to fall out over time. Typically, there are around 10-20 types of synthetic chemicals in commercially manufactured shampoo. Shop for an organic, natural shampoo to help prevent damage to the hair.


Sleep on satin.

If your hair is long and you toss and turn in your sleep, you may be causing unwanted tangles which eventually can result in knots and hair breakage. Prevent this by putting your long hair in a loose braid for sleeping, and always sleep on a satin or silk pillow case to keep your hair from sticking to the sheets.
