Our hair can become damaged due to a variety of everyday occurrences including heat styling, chemical treatments, and environmental stressors. Damaged hair can appear dull and brittle, and be prone to breakage. Repairing and protecting damaged hair requires a combination of preventative measures and targeted treatments, and Original Sprout has a range of naturally nourishing products to restore strength and shine. We might be best known for our baby hair styling products, but we take care of hair for the whole family.
Avoid harsh chemicals
Chemical styling treatments such as hair dye, perms, and relaxers can damage hair. If possible, avoid these treatments or seek out gentler alternatives. All Original Sprout hair products are formulated with extracts from fruits, vegetables and flowers, for effective and safe haircare.
Cut down on heat styling
Hair dryers, curling wands and straighteners produce fantastic results, but can damage hair by drying it out and causing breakage. Limiting the use of heat on your hair will help, as will restoring moisture to your damaged locks. Our protective Protein Hair Mist is loaded with plant proteins and organic extracts from kale, carrots, lemon, argan oil and jojoba, to lock in moisture and repair breakage. It’s all thanks to our Vega Bead Technology, where microcapsules that are a complex of alginate polymers bond to the amino acid surface of damaged hair to form a protective barrier.
Choose the right tools
Aggressively brushing and combing your hair will cause damage. Try to use a wide-toothed comb for detangling, working gently from tip to root. Our Miracle Detangler makes the job even easier, helping the comb to glide through hair with minimal resistance.
Use targeted treatments
Using a deep conditioning treatment once a week to nourish and hydrate hair can help to restore it to its former glory. Original Sprout Leave-in Conditioner is made with nourishing emollients and arnica for split ends, and a surprisingly light formulation that makes it easily absorbed. If you’re a regular swimmer, try applying it to your hair before you hit the pool to protect yourself from chlorine damage.
Stay out of the sun
UV rays can damage our hair and fade colours with daily exposure. If you know you’re going to be out in the sun for long periods of time, don’t forget your hat. Our leave-in treatments restore moisture and help protect hair from UV damage and dryness.
Adopt a healthy lifestyle
Healthy hair is about what’s going on inside as well as outside. Eating a healthy diet, staying hydrated, getting enough sleep and reducing stress will all benefit your body.
Repairing and protecting damaged hair requires a combination of preventative measures, targeted treatments, and lifestyle changes. By following these tips, you can restore your hair to a healthy, shiny state. Remember to be patient and consistent with your hair care routine, as it can take time to see results. We’d love to hear which Original Sprout products have worked for you and your family.
