How To Repair Damaged Hair

header 00


After trying to get my hair back to it’s natural colour my hair got really damaged in the process and kept snapping off. This wasn’t good for me because I’ve been trying to grow my hair and i then had to have 2/3 inches cut off because it was so damaged! These are the things i did to my hair to help repair and strengthen it back up. I would recommend reading reviews before using certain brands of hair dye as some can do more damage then good to you hair.

What I Used To Help Repair My Hair


L’Oreal Elvive – Thickening Masque 

This first thing i did was use hair mask’s. There are a lot of hair masks out there but finding one that actually does the job it’s supposed to do can be hard. I’ve used many masks but i haven’t really noticed a difference in my hair. I then used John Frieda’s Full Repair Deep Conditioner (£5.89) I put this all over my hair when it was wet, put it in a bun and left it for 5-10 minutes, i then washed it off. The first time i used it i didn’t really notice a difference but after a while i started to see my spilt ends were not as noticeable and my hair wasn’t snapping off as much.


Mane ‘n’ Tail Shampoo & Conditioner 

The next thing i did was find a Shampoo and Conditioner that would repair my hair and stop it from snapping off easily. I turned back to Mane ‘n Tail ( around £7 from amazon) as it helps grow hair and i heard it strengthens hair as well. After a month of using the shampoo i noticed such a huge difference in my hair, my hair wasn’t snapping off while i was washing my hair and it looks more healthy and my spilt ends were not as noticeable. I will always highly recommend this product because its help my hair grow and strengthen in a short time and always does wonders to my hair.


Tangel Teezer

I purchased a Tangle Teezer from boots. (£10.99) This hair brush is expensive but defiantly worth the money. I got recommend this by a friend and I’ve loved it ever since. As i have fine hair, my hair knots very easily, just going on a short walk can knot my hair so much if you have fine hair you will understand the pain. This brush helps get the knots out without hurting my scalp or pulling my hair out. Its gentle on the hair and prevents damaging it. Changing your hair brush sounds a little silly when talking about how to repair your hair but it’s such an improvement and can help just as much as using a hair mask as you brush your hair everyday and if your brush is ripping hair out each time you brush it its going to damage your hair even more.


Umberto Giannini – Mend My Hair Therapy

The last thing i did was try to find a product to help spilt ends. I searched high and low for a good product that wasn’t too pricy and did the job. After doing lots of research and not being able to find the product i wanted to try out i picked up the Umberto Giannini – Mend My Hair Therapy (£7.99) If i’m honest I’ve never heard of or used any of this brands products before. But i picked it up and gave it a go and I’m happy with the results. After I’ve washed my hair i take 2 little pumps and rub it between my hands, i then evenly put it through my hair focusing more on the ends of my hair. I used this every time i wash my hair and with using this product for a short to i noticed a difference with my spilt ends. Im not very keen on putting oily products in my hair but this has helped my ends a lot and is defiantly worth the price.

I’m happy with the results from these products as my hair was that bad and breaking i didn’t want to have to cut it again. These have helped repair my hair and get it back to the state it was in before i dyed it. I’ve tried to make sure some of these products are affordable but it can be hard finding affordable products that work as sometimes its easier to pay a little more for something that will benefit you in the long run.

Thank you for reading, I hope this post helped you.

Hair Products For Fine Hair





If you are like me and have fine hair and envy anyone who has thick luscious hair this post might help you achieve being one step closer to getting thicker hair without having to break the piggy bank for expensive extensions.

These are hair products that I’ve used for months and have worked the best to help achieve thicker looking and feeling hair. I have some affordable one’s and one that is a little pricy but works amazingly.



Mane ‘N Tail Shampoo & Conditioner

Mane ‘N Tail was originally made for horses hair. Don’t be put off using this product because it also actually helps hair grow faster. (I will be doing a review on this) I feel like this product really helps make hair feel thicker and it also strengthens hair. I use this every other day on my hair and it has a nice smell to it and the smell lingers hours after you have washed your hair. Ive been using this for a little over a year and i can tell a huge difference in my hair, it has helped my spilt ends and my hair always looks clean and shiny.

I purchased this product on amazon as it doesn’t sell in the UK,it’s £7.09 for both shampoo and conditioner 355ml.


L’Oreal: Elvive Fibrology

This is a very recent hair thickening product that L’Oreal has brought out. It has the shampoo and conditioner, hair mask and the thickness booster. Ive used the hair mask as a treatment after I’ve dyed my hair and when my hair starts to feel dry. I use the Shampoo in alternative with the Mane ‘N Tail shampoo. I really like the smell to these products as the smell is strong enough for you to smell it on your hair. Your supposed to use the thickness booster with conditioner but i don’t use conditioner so i just add it to my shampoo and live it a little longer in my hair. I find these products do the job, not as much as the Mane ‘N Tail but you can feel a difference and it makes your hair look less fine and limp looking.

I purchased these from boots, i got them when there was an offer. The Shampoo is £2.99 The thickness booster is £5.99 which i find a little expensive for the amount you get and the thickening mask is £5.09.


Lush: Big Sea Salt Shampoo

I absolutely love this product and i defiantly would recommend it to people who have fine hair. I use this every other time i wash my hair instead of Mane ‘n Tail or the Elvive. I take a little in my hand and rub it between my palms i then spread it over my head and massage it into my hair, i leave it on for a little bit and then i wash it all out. It smells nice and it makes my hair feel so volumized and thicker! I don’t use this every time i wash my hair as it can be quite drying to my hair. This is one of the best products I’ve purchased for my hair as it makes it actually look and feel thicker and I’ve noticed such a difference using this product. Ive had this for a few months now and it never fails me.

I purchased this from Lush for £12.25 it’s a lot of money for how much you get but i really recommend it as it does the job.


John Frieda: Luxurious Volume Thickening Mousse

I’ve tried my fair share of thickening mousses, and some have made my hair feel greasy or have dried funny and left my hair feeling hard. I took a chance and picked this up and i really like it. I take a small amount of the mousse into my hands then i put half into my roots and the rest through my hair, i then flip my hair upside down and blow dry it to make sure all the product is dry. It gives me volume and some thickness and doesn’t make my hair feel sticky or clump up my hair.

I purchased this from boots and it’s £4.99


John Frieda: Root Booster

I use this before i use the mousse, i spray it on my roots flip my hair up and then blow dry it. It doesn’t leave your hair feeling sticky and it actually helps boost your roots a bit. Its £5.79 from boots.

I hope this post helps with anyone who has fine hair and are trying to achieve getting thicker looking hair. Some of the products are affordable if you are on a budget. If you would like more of a review before you purchase any of these products feel free to ask.
