The right hair care products can serve as total superheroes for your troubled mane, and we’ve compiled a list of them to help you out. Read on to learn how to give your weak strands a boost, courtesy of our best products for strengthening hair.

TIP #3: AND A HAIR MASK
Aside from hair treatments, hair masks can also benefit weak hair. Here are two worth trying.

TIP #4: DON’T SKIP DETANGLER
Last but not least, there’s one hair product you may not have had on your weak hair radar: detangler! Brushing out knots and tangles without one when your hair is already weak can lead to more damage, split ends, and overall weaker hair. No thanks! Enter the L’Oréal Kids Burst of Sweet Pear Tangle Tamer for All Hair Types. The spray-on conditioning formula can be used on wet or dry hair to tackle even the craziest knots and tame bed head.
