The Science Behind Total Repair Extreme with Lactic AHA

If your hair is over-processed and extremely damaged, it’s going to take more than just a simple shampoo and condition to fix it. Here’s why L’Oréal’s Total Repair Extreme line stands out from the pack help rescue your hair from extreme damage.

A variety of aggressors—from flat irons, blow dryers, curling irons and even a chilly arctic blast—all contribute to the problem of extremely damaged hair and require targeted ingredients to help hair regain the silky softness of days gone by.

At the core of the Total Repair Extreme line is Lactic AHA and repairing Ceramide that work synergistically to reconstruct the strength of hair to regain softness from root to tip. Lactic AHA gently encourages amped up cell renewal while providing hydration by increasing barrier lipids. Ceramides, meanwhile, are naturally occurring lipids found in the hair fiber that strengthen strands and help hold them together.

Did you know that you can repair damage while cleansing and conditioning? That’s why Total Repair Extreme Shampoo & Conditioner use reparative formulas boosted by a combination of Lactic AHA and Ceramide that delve deep into the hair fiber to nourish it intensely. Adding essential nutrients during the washing process is essential to rehabilitating over-processed hair.

Regularly deep conditioning also helps amplify and maintain the improved results. Total Repair Extreme Emergency Recovery Mask is a rich healing treatment that rivals more expensive salon solutions. After only three minutes, the rinse-out mask rapidly repairs the hair fiber for increased suppleness. After using both the shampoo and conditioner, simply apply the mask for a few minutes before rinsing out.

Split ends are cited as one of the most common hair problems among women. For decades, the only true solution was to snip off splits at the salon, but now Total Repair Extreme Split Ends Fixer provides an at-home solution. A dual-action leave-in formula combines a reconstructive gel and resurfacing serum together to temporarily help “glue” ends back together. Whatever your chosen solution, it is imperative that split ends be taken care of as quickly as possible to prevent extreme damage from creeping up higher into hair.

For less intensely damaged hair, try L’Oréal Paris Total Repair 5, a system of shampoo, conditioner and treatments that repairs the five visible signs of damage.

Over-processed hair may not be pretty, but with today’s emerging technology, the ability to have a good hair day (or month!) is literally coming down to a science. By treating your hair to counter your styling and environmental stressors, you can enjoy luxurious locks without sacrificing the styling methods it takes to achieve your favorite look of the moment.
