Excessive chemical treatments such as perms, relaxers, color treatments, and bleaching can change the structure of your hair, leaving it drier, weaker, and more prone to breakage.
Everyday manipulation like vigorous brushing and backcombing can lift and tear the naturally smooth cuticle layer, resulting in dry, unmanageable, and frizzy hair.
Exposure to high heat from hairdryers and styling tools will also lead to damaged and weakened hair.
Other sources of hair damage include sun exposure, chlorine, hard water, and internal causes such as aging, stress, and unbalanced diets.
Common signs that your hair is damaged include dryness, dulling, split ends, limpness, brittle texture, and hair loss.
When your hair is damaged, the outermost hydro-lipid layer disappears, and that’s your hair’s natural protective barrier. When your hair is stripped of its natural oils, it loses its natural luster and appears dull and lifeless.
On a micro-level, the scales along the damaged hair shaft are chipped and raised, leaving the inner hair structure vulnerable to damage. The damaged cuticle layer allows the moisture to evaporate, making your hair dry, brittle, and susceptible to frizz in humid weather.
Once the disulfide bonds responsible for hair strength are broken, your hair becomes weak, fragile, and prone to breakage.
Pro Fiber hair care treatment is an in-salon reconstructing protocol that offers a range of three targeted treatments (Revive, Restore, and Recover) for different levels of hair damage. This treatment system contains the APTYL 100 complex that can penetrate deep inside hair fibers and stay in the hair for several shampoos.
Your stylist will evaluate the level and type of hair damage to adapt the treatment to your hair’s needs.
The procedure: Your hair is cleansed with L’OREAL Professional Restore Shampoo. A single dose of the appropriate treatment is applied and worked into the sections of your hair. Loreal Fiber Renew Masque is then applied as another layer on top of the treatment and left on for 5 minutes. A little water is added to emulsify the product. After 5 minutes, your hair is rinsed thoroughly.
The treatment results in re-plumped, healthy-looking, shiny hair.
Home care: Your stylist will also make suggestions for at-home follow up, so you can maintain and prolong the results.
