Damaged hair is a problem for so many of us – and the cause can be anything from using too many heated appliances or an overload of bleach to living in a place with a dry climate. But whatever’s behind your broken strands, don’t worry! Luckily, there are hundreds of hair care products out there formulated especially to repair them as quickly as possible. Some brands have really gone the extra mile, with a few in particular coming out on top.
OLAPLEX
OLAPLEX is a hair care brand that used to only be available in salons, but, thankfully for us, it’s now available online. It’s a line dedicated to creating formulas that seek out broken bonds in the hair and repair them – sounds ideal, right? Even better, all OLAPLEX products contain a patented ingredient that works on a molecular level – and hair stylists and celebrities around the world swear by it. The company’s best-selling product is the OLAPLEX No 3 Hair Perfector, which is used as a pre-shampoo treatment (or a leave-in, overnight treatment for more severe cases) once a week. It repairs, restores, and renews your hair without coating it in a greasy film, as well as strengthening and protecting it from further damage. Another product, the No. 7 Bonding Oil, is ideal for use with the Hair Perfector for maximum damage-control.
SheaMoisture
SheaMoisture prides itself on using the best natural ingredients selected carefully from around the world, as well as organic production processes to produce a line of sustainable hair care products. All the formulas are inspired by the founders’ grandmother, who first began selling shea butter-based products in 1912 at a market in Sierra Leone. Luckily, the company has a number of products specifically formulated to treat damaged hair, with one of the bestsellers being the Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque. Enriched with raw shea butter, olive oil, castor seed oil, and other natural botanicals, this all-over hair conditioner helps to repair broken strands of hair as well as protecting them from additional damage in future. The Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Styling Lotion is another best-selling product that combines shea butter with black castor oil to protect hair strands and follicles while restoring moisture to damaged hair.
Bumble and Bumble
Bumble and Bumble was founded in New York City back in the 1970s but has since become a huge international brand with a cult-like following – and guess what? They have a whole product line dedicated to repairing damaged hair! The Mending Range has some fantastic products in it, but there are a couple of bestsellers that particularly stand out. The rich but lightweight Save the Day Daytime Protective Repair Fluid is a concentrate that’s infused with nourishing oils such as camelia oil, as well as UV filters, to help repair past damage and protect against future damage. If your hair’s really in need of some TLC, you can pair it with the While You Sleep Damaging Repair Masque, which is a heavier blend of similar ingredients that should be left in overnight once or twice a week.
Pureology
Pureology started California in 2001 with a simple but powerful idea: to create the very best 100% vegan products for color-treated hair. Now, as you probably know all too well by now, color-treated hair is often damaged hair, as it doesn’t take too long for all the harsh chemicals to have a negative effect on your locks – so Pureology offer multiple products to help repair, restore, and rejuvenate. The Strength Cure Shampoo is one of Pureology’s bestsellers, and it’s not hard to see why. With a blend of key ingredients such as astaxanthin and keravis, as well as raspberry, water flowers, and peach, it helps to fortify and repair damaged hair. Team this with the conditioner, and you should notice a difference fairly quickly. For extra TLC, try the Strength Cure Miracle Filler, which is daily blow-dry reparative lotion containing key ingredients such as coriander oil, xylose, and camomile that help to strengthen, repair and protect hair strands and cuticles.
Start Your Damage-Control!
So, now you know some of the best hair care brands for repairing, restoring, and rejuvenating damaged hair – as well as their top products – you can start your damage control!

The best sunscreen for dry skin☀️
The best sunscreen for dry skin☀️
Y’all… Let me tell you how dry my skin gets. My skin gets so dry that it looks like my skin is actually flaking. I have struggled with dry skin my entire life and I hardly find any products that truly help my skin. I reached out to a friend who gave me a skin care routine and she suggested this sunscreen PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ it is honestly the best! Not only is it scent free but it hydrates my skin without burning it. I have high sensitivity to a lot of products and this is one that doesn’t make my skin irritated or break out. If you struggle with dry skin, try out this sunscreen! Not only does it help with the dryness but also you should always be protecting your face with sunscreen!!!
Trying to find the culprit... HELP!
Trying to find the culprit... HELP!
Ever since I’ve added these two new products, I’ve noticed a couple new breakouts in places i’ve never experienced!!! They are red painful pimples too. Two on my forehead (I never get them there) , one on the outside of my nostril (i never get them there either), and the weirdest singular pimple on my NECK! Both of these products I have used on my face and neck, however, I’m not sure what product or ingredient is causing the sudden breakout!! Or is it just purging??? Help!!!!!! Did anyone else experience this with these products??? COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Murad - Nutrient-Charged Water Gel

Why I Decided to Ditch My Clarisonic Brush
Why I Decided to Ditch My Clarisonic Brush
Back in the day, my clarisonic - MIA 2 FACIAL CLEANSING BRUSH was my go to. I started using it religiously (daily). Well, deciding that once a day was way too much to use an abrasive electronic brush on my face, I decided to only use it when needed. When I would use it here and there, almost every time I would breakout. I tried using brand new heads, replacing the heads regularly, etc. In contrast of my personal experience with this brush, much research is shown that these brushes can damage the acid mantle, protective film and natural oils, and amino acids that are on our skin. Abrasive skin tools to me were just a fad and now that we have come so far with knowledge on a healthy skin care routine, we should focus on products that effect the skins beauty from within by using appropriate ingredients that penetrate the skin and change it from the inside out. To me, a deep clean from a brush is not worth me breaking out. I would rather use a chemical exfoliant (such as The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution ) or a gently microdermabrasion paste/wash (such as philosophy - The Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash ) when needed. What is the go to way to exfoliate your face? Also, has anyone had the same experience with Clarisonic brushes or face brushes in general?
