Healthy hair may only be a treatment or two away.
Excessive flyaways, damaged hair, split ends, dull-looking hair — the list of hair concerns can go on and on. Years of coloring, blow-drying, and daily hairstyling may leave you with tresses that you're less than proud of, and you're not alone. Improving your hair care game takes time and the right tools, but the good news is that it can certainly be done. We've rounded up the best hair products you can use for dealing with seven common hair care concerns, from taming frizzy hair to preventing your ends from breaking.
You may or may not realize that frizzy strands can actually be a sign that your hair isn’t as healthy as it should be — it could be overly dry, which then contributes to frizz. Reach for the L’Oréal Paris Dream Lengths Frizz Killer Serum Leave-In to help with this. This leave-in has a water-based, ultra-lightweight formula that works to tame frizz and static. It includes castor seed oil which supports the keratin in your hair and makes each strand stronger and smoother. Layer one to two pumps of this serum on damp hair before you reach for your blow dryer. You can use it on dry hair to tame frizz and static, too.
Damaged hair can be a consequence of frequent hair coloring, using hot tools without protection, and skipping out on basic hair care maintenance. Start showing your hair some love by using a heat protectant like the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Heat Slayer Pre-Iron Spray Leave-In. It has a lightweight formula that will offer up to 450-degree heat protection, which is a must if you use heat frequently. It also works as a leave-in spray that will help reduce frizz and hydrate your hair. In addition to that, use a hair treatment at least once a week to give your hair some extra nourishment. Reach for the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Power Restore Multi use treatment, formulated with repair concentrate proteins to strengthen hair against future damage.
Editor’s Tip: Be sure to take your hair’s needs into consideration when selecting your cleansing options. Boost your wash routine with the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Bond Strengthening Color Care Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Bond Strengthening Conditioner which works to reinforce weak hair bonds to strengthen the hair from the inside out.
If your hair becomes straw-like and starts breaking off at the ends, that can be a sign that you have dry strands. Reach for the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Conditioner to bring your dry hair back to life. It includes ingredients like coconut oil to hydrate and condition hair. In just one wash your tresses will be left feeling super soft and shiny and not weighed down.
Add the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths 8 Second Wonder Water Lamellar Rinse Out into the mix for extra nourishment when you need it. This rinse-out liquid detangler includes vitamin E and amino acids, which will help smooth out your hair and leave it soft and shiny in less than a minute.
If your hair is on the thin side, you can achieve the appearance of a more voluminous mane by using certain products. Reach for the L’Oréal Paris EverStrong Sulfate-Free Thickening Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverStrong Sulfate-Free Thickening Conditioner. This duo is specially formulated for fine, thin hair and it will work to penetrate the hair fiber from root to tip for healthier-looking, fuller hair. The addition of rosemary leaf fortifies fragile strands from within so you’ll notice a thicker feel and root lift from the first wash. The shampoo will help build body and density, while the lightweight conditioner will add moisture into the hair to keep it soft.
The key to getting your dehydrated hair back on track is all about boosting your strands with hydration. Add a moisturizing hair care system like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Conditioner into your wash day routine. This duo has a rich, creamy formula that works to replenish hair with moisture and adds shine. If you have curls and are looking for a boost of hydration, grab the L’Oréal Paris Dream Lengths Curls Moisture Push Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Dream Lengths Curls Moisture Seal Conditioner, which are both formulated with hyaluronic acid and castor oil to nourish your curls without product weigh down.
Color-treated hair has unique needs, so it’s essential to stick to a system of hair care products formulated specifically for colored hair. We recommend using the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Conditioner. This system is formulated with antioxidants and UV filters to help restore the hair’s health and shield the color from fading.
If you have blonde-colored, bleached or highlighted hair, the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Brass Toning Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Brass Toning Conditioner are must-haves for keeping brassy tones at bay. Once a week, also add in the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Anti Brass Purple Mask Treatment to color correct brass and deeply nourish your strands for a healthy-looking mane.
Split ends are a common hair concern that almost everyone will deal with at some point in their hair care journey. They can leave your mane looking frizzy, unmanaged and delay your progress to long hair (if that’s your goal). To help prevent split ends and avoid an unwanted chop, try using the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths No Haircut Cream Leave In Conditioner. It's formulated with a blend of strengthening ingredients including castor oil, vitamins B3 and B5. It works to seal split ends while preventing heat damage caused by styling so you can preserve every last inch of your hair.
Remember, no matter your hair type or concern, healthy hair starts at the roots, so be sure to care for your scalp, too. Reach for the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Scalp Care Detox Scrub, to exfoliate your scalp and remove excess oil and product build-up. It's safe for color-treated hair, and it’s made with apricot seed and menthol, to leave your scalp cleansed, refreshed and ready for your shampoo and conditioner.
