The Best Detox Products to Nurse Damaged Hair Back to Health
1. Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Masque
To lock in moisture and shine without weighing down style, we're turning to the Brazilian buriti oil in Aveda's Moistuizing Masque ($34; aveda.com) as our new shower staple come spring.
2. Julien Farel Vitamin Restore
Give your hair its daily dose of vitamins with the vitamin E-rich formula in Julien Farel's Restore ($33; dermstore.com), which substitutes for both your shampoo and conditioner.
3. John Frieda Full Repair Oil Elixir
How does seriously stressed hair regain its composure? A regular therapy session with John Frieda's Oil Elixir ($9; target.com), which won't make fine strands fall flat and fully moisturizes thicker textures.
4. Frederic Fekkai PrX Reparatives Mending Elixir
If you go heavy on the heat-styling, smooth on a light coat of Frederic Fekkai's Mending Elixir ($25; fekkai.com) before hitting hair with a curling iron, and again after hair is styled. The addition of pure argan oil-dubbed "liquid gold" for its versatility-restores the moisture lost to your hair dryer or flat iron, leaving hair silky and touchable.
5. Kerastase Advanced Scalp and Hair Concentrate
If you're having hair issues, target the root of the problem-literally. Kerastase's Initialiste ($60; kerastase-usa.com) gives your strands a smooth, shiny appearance, but also provides nourishment to the often-ignored scalp area with a cocktail of growth-stimulating elements like green tea extract and ceramides.
6. L'Oreal Paris Total Repair Extreme Split Ends Fixer
While most split-end menders simply glue the frayed pieces back together until your next shampoo, L'Oreal's innovative repair serum ($7; lorealparisusa.com) actually repairs the damage from the inside out by directly entering the hair shaft to fix each broken fiber. You'll not only buy time between salon appointments, but your stylist won't have to take off as much at your next visit.
7. Tigi Bed Head Dumb Blonde Reconstructor
TIGI's Dumb Blonde Reconstructor ($30; ulta.com) takes flaxen tones from straw-like to stunning by using keratin to fill the gaps in your hair shaft, and goes the extra mile to boost shine and hydration levels.
Just like your essential spring raincoat, the Anti-Frizz Hair Mask by Carol's Daughter ($32; carolsdaughter.com) repels water and humidity with its nourishing blend of Cupacu butter, and has the ability to tame flyaways.
9. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment
Living Proof's one-size-fits-all styling treatment ($26; livingproof.com) smooths and strengthens the hair follicle while adding a glossy shine and pumping up volume in all the right places.
10. Marc Anthony Macadamia Oil Conditioning Treatment
Even after just one use of Marc Anthony's Macadamia Oil Treatment ($3; ulta.com), you'll notice a major difference. The macadamia-rich formula moisturizes each strand while bamboo extract tackles frizz and imparts a glossy finish.
11. Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask
Forget Batman and Robin-the keravis proteins and argan oil in Eva's deep conditioner ($15; ulta.com) are the ultimate dynamic duo for damaged strands fighting off dryness and frizz.
12. Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo
If too much hairspray leaves your strands limp, lather up with Bumble and Bumble’s detoxifying shampoo ($24; bumbleandbumble.com), which acts as an astringent for your hair by sloughing away product residue and buildup, while toning the scalp with rosemary and sage leaf extracts.
13. Andre Walker Ultimate Moisture Conditioner
Curly girls should follow your shampooing routine with a coat of Andre Walker's Ultimate Moisture Conditioner ($22; andrewalkerhair.com), then rinse lightly (or not at all if you have tight curls) to let your hair drink in nutritive ingredients like aloe leaf juice, and African mongongo oil.
14. Agave Healing Vapor Iron
A flat iron that's actually good for your hair? Sign us up! Agave's innovative straightener ($149 for the set; sephora.com) replaces damaging metal plates with ionic iron versions, which work with the included thermal-activated conditioner to leave your strands healthy and hydrated, with a sleek finish that won't quit.
15. Drybar Mudslide Nourishing Hair Mask
Who knew a cool mudslide cocktail could be just as refreshing on your tips as it is on your lips? With its restorative blend of jojoba and sunflower seed extract, Drybar’s intensive masque ($38; thedrybar.com) nurses hair back to a healthier state after one too many blowouts.
