When hair is over-processed, your hair shaft becomes porous and dense, making it harder to style and maintain. Over-processed hair can’t be completely fixed. Damage to your hair shaft can’t be treated, since all visible hair on your head is technically dead cells. However, there are steps you can take to significantly improve your hair’s appearance and make it easier to maintain while you wait for new hair to grow in.

The most infamous sign of over-processed hair has little to do with its looks and is more about how you can’t get it to look. Over-processed hair becomes notoriously hard to style. Hair breakage can start to occur in areas where over-processing has severely damaged hair. If over-processing has burned your scalp, patches of your hair may fall out. Hair may also become “gummy.” This means that it feels thin and stringy. If you have hair damage on the bottom, you may notice many split ends. Your hair may hang limp because of the split ends’ excess weight. This can give your hair an “uneven” appearance. Finally, over-processed hair may be more prone to looking “frizzy” or wild.

The products in this category will revitalize the overall look of processed hair and deeply nourish it.

In my years of helping clients, I often get asked how and what to do with over-processed, damaged hair. I usually recommend using a nourishing hair oil that you sleep with overnight. For extreme damage, I recommend twice a week for two months to repair and revitalize the hair follicles. If you want to know which one, send me a message, I make one of my own, and it’s liquid gold. The hair oils I use are organic and cold-pressed, and no synthetic ingredients of any kind are incorporated.
