Our hair gets put through quite a few elements on a consistent basis. If we’re really honest, it takes a bit of a hit when it comes to TLC. We’re all eager to have that gorgeous, healthy hair but when we use a lot of chemical treatments and other hair care elements on our hair it can be difficult to really achieve. We don’t want that to discourage you, though. Because there are some great treatments for over processed hair that you can do at home. Yep, there are some really great DIY hair care treatments that can work wonders for over processed hair.
Amp Up The Shine
When our hair gets overly processed it can begin to appear dull and lacking a lot of that gorgeous shine we all want to have. Many hair experts suggest that when your hair is dull and lacking a lot of shine, it can benefit from an olive oil mask on a consistent basis. Typically, when your hair is lacking the shine it needs more moisture as the moisture and hydration has been stripped from the hair due to being over processed. Olive oil is great at adding natural moisture back into the hair. To really make the most of using olive oil on your hair to add shine, you’ll want to make sure to apply the olive oil at your scalp all the way down to the roots and leave it on for 45-60 minutes to allow the oil to really get a boost of moisture to the hair.
Help Dry Scalp
Dry scalp is another indication that can be the result of overly processed hair. But without a healthy, moisturized scalp it can be really difficult to have gorgeous hair. Since our hair really starts at the scalp, you want to make sure that you’re also taking care of the scalp. Fortunately there’s a pretty easy way that you can get a boost of moisture to your scalp with an at home treatment. Experts suggest that using a cotton ball with witch hazel on it to run across your hairline and scalp can be a really powerful way to get the moisture back into the scalp. Additionally, some experts suggest adding tea tree oil to your daily hair care products to get the moisture to your scalp consistently.
Get More Volume
Another sign of overly processed hair can be when your hair begins to lack any natural volume. Often when our hair has been processed too much it an begin to appear and feel lifeless – aka not having any volume and that can be pretty frustrating. Finding that you’re lacking volume in your hair? You’re in luck because there’s a pretty easy way to get volume back into your hair with an at home treatment.
