    Default Damaged hair

    I had balayage done about 8 weeks ago and it has wrecked my hair so much!
    They toned twice and did a treatment but the ends are like straw.
    I'm considering just getting it dyed back to my natural colour and using a treatment but don't know what.

    Can any hairdressers help?

    It's always good to start with a good Shampoo & Conditioner for Coloured Hair. Use a Treatment once or twice a week, The Moroccan Oil Treatment is a nice Leave in, and I love the Moroccan Oil Intense Hydrating Mask, makes the hair feel beautiful. If the ends are breaking, I'd suggest Redken Anti Snap as a leave in, doesn't make the hair feel soft as theres protein in it but stops hair snapping! I also love the Redken Intense Renewal mask. Its a treatment that has moisture, protein and Anti frizz all in one.

    I'm not a hairdresser but I had a similar experience to you and my hair was so damaged, I was really upset.

    I switched to Kerastase Nutritive, used the Shampoo and the leave in treatment in place of conditioner and it worked wonders within about 2 weeks. I also use the elixir ultime after washes and that works a treat too.

    Thanks for the replies ladies.

    I went to Price Attack today and got some Argan Oil for moisture and Joico K-Pak Revitaluxe for the protein.
    Fingers crossed it works!

    I was going to suggest argan oil. I ended up having to chop my hair a bit shorter after something similar happened to me but the argan oil is what helped the most I think.

    Oh good to know it works. My ends are terrible, I'm going to get it trimmed and coloured back closer to my natural colour.

    I would make sure you get a semi, not a permanent colour, that should help, I had mine bleached to strip some colour then dyed with a permanent coliur with bleach in it... so essentially doubled up on it... my poor hair was wrecked. That was 10 months ago, I will be honest it took awhile to get it back to nice and shiny and healthy but it got there eventually I just made sure I had regular trims every 6 weeks as well.

    Try a latino treatment, it really improves the overall quality of your hair.
