True Love Hair - - CONTENTS - By LISA THA­BETHE

Un­ruly curls, split ends, break­age and thin­ning hair are our big­gest hair con­cerns. With so many new prod­ucts and de­vel­op­ments in the hair in­dus­try, you’re un­der­stand­ably clue­less about the treat­ment your mane needs.

Treat­ments help to pro­tect and re­plen­ish the hair af­ter it’s been styled, re­laxed, coloured, braided and weaved. Even if you have nat­u­ral hair, reg­u­lar treat­ments are just as im­por­tant to en­hance and main­tain its health and bounce.

The most im­por­tant thing for you to re­mem­ber is to have a treat­ment done ev­ery two weeks. That’s how you’ll see a dif­fer­ence.

Most treat­ments are done ex­clu­sively at the sa­lon, but some can be done in the com­fort of your home. We break down the right treat­ment for your hair type.

HEAT DAM­AGED

Treat­ment: Mois­ture plus

Tar­get dry hair with prod­ucts for­mu­lated to add mois­ture. Start by us­ing a sul­phate-free sham­poo and hy­drat­ing con­di­tioner. In­ject­ing your hair with mois­ture en­sures it stays healthy. For shiny yet lively hair strands, get a hot oil treat­ment.

THIN AND WEAK

Treat­ment: Ker­atin

Braids, corn­rows or dread­locks that are pulled too tightly may re­sult in thin­ning. You need a vo­lu­mis­ing mousse to boost your hair dur­ing the styling process. Ker­atin treat­ments are a gamechanger. Choose the right ker­atin treat­ment for your hair type and styling needs to get the most from this smooth­ing pro­tein. You can also give your locks the il­lu­sion of more vol­ume by blow-dry­ing and teas­ing. Air dry­ing hair can also cre­ate vol­ume.
