What are the BEST products for hair reconstruction and repair?
Posted 03 December 2007 - 06:00 PM
Shampoo: L'OREAL Nutri-Gloss Vive Pro Shampoo for damaged hair
Conditioner: L'OREAL Nutri-Gloss Vive Pro Conditioner for damaged hair
Deep Conditioner/Treatment: L'OREAL Nutri-Gloss Vive Pro Conditioning Treatment for damaged hair
Leave-In Creme: L'OREAL Nutri-Gloss Elseve leave-in creme (apply to damp hair)
Serum: L'OREAL Nutri-Gloss elvive serum (apply to dry hair)
It's designed for dull and damaged medium to long hair, the product line I'm currently using. And it makes my hair feel great, as long as I'm using it everyday that is. I want something that actually repairs and reconstructs my hair, not just masks it with intense moisture.
So I'm looking for the best hair products I can get for hair treatment. Anything under $50 that is, I know some of the at-home treatments out there are like, $200.
So far on my list of products I'm interested in:
Nexxus Emergencee Hair Reconstructer
Nexxus KeraPhix creme hair reconstructer
Joico's K-PAK Products
At first I was just going to get a product line like Sunsilk Hydra TLC or Pantene Time Renewal.. but I feel as if those type of products just mask the damage and not actually repair them.
So can anyone suggest what the best at-home products are for reconstructing damaged hair? So far I'm either going to use those two Nexxuss products with the Therappe and Humectress shampoo & conditioner or get the Joico K-PAK line.
The damage done to my hair is: salon dye and highlights, at-home dye (recently, turned out great though!), flat iron abuse, at-home chemical straightener (rofl) and just like, neglect. My hair is rotting on the inside. Help it, please!
Oh, and I take hair vitamins everyday. One from wal-mart and one from Sally's.

this summer i also got a burn on my scalp (not funny grrr) and my hairdresser made me buy those products from Kerastase, Dermo Calm collection : Noctocalm, which is a night serum you can apply on your scalp (i was advised to use it at least for a month, every night) and the shampoo (called "bain vital haute tolerance" in french). it's very gentle, and it leaves the hair so smooth you don't feel the need of using a conditioner after. because it's a gel texture, the bottle also lasts long because you don't need much product for each shampoo. they cost some money, but they're worth it

You've probably already received plenty of responses to this post, but I thought I would just pass on that you cannot repair or reconstruct hair. Products bandy around these terms frequently, but nothing will repair the physical shaft of the hair. However, intensive treatments can help keep it in the best possible shape. Long hair, particularly when it is colored, inevitiably develops damage. The ends sustain the most damage because, well, that part of the hair has been around the longest. The best things you can do to *keep* your hair at its healthiest (not repair afterwords), is to use a deep conditioner once a week, be moderate with hair color (don't change all the time ;-) ), and get the ratty ends cut off regularly. Changing to medium-length hair should help a lot. In fact, if you have done this, I'm sure you found your hair to suddenly feel much better!
