How to fix damaged, dry hair

May 26, 2014


My hair and I have been through a lot in the past 40 something *ahem* years.

Our relationship started out great for the first decade of our life….. my golden locks were untouched and unblemished by harsh chemicals and the worst thing I can think of doing to it was cutting my own bangs in Grade 3 – note to self – never, ever, again.

Then came my teen years. And the most unfortunate first perm. Add to that, copious use of “Sun-In” in the summer, crimping irons, blow-dryers, teased bangs, hairspray and much much more. Oh, and did I mention the second unfortunate perm when I was 18. Why oh why?!

Through my 20s I was an athlete – like a hard core one. My hair got salty and sweaty a LOT. It also got dyed several shades of everything through my experimental phase (and then dyed back quickly to correct whatever mistake I just made). Not good folks, not good.

In my 30s I discovered my inner girly girl. Cue the curling irons, flat irons and blow-outs. Cue the highlights, lowlights and everything in between. That is until I had kids…but then the years of ponytails and top knots didn’t do my hair any favours either 🙂

And now. In my 40’s, I am confident with my hair..I love the length, I love what I can do with it, and I love the color…..but oh has it suffered through the years. My current “Mombre” look is partly a style choice and partly a “should I grow out all this damaged hair” choice. So many split ends, and my hair texture closely resembles something a cow might munch on for lunch. So what is a “Damage Criminal” like myself to do?

Enter Fructis Damage Eraser. It’s the latest in hair care innovation from Garnier Fructis which is ideal for busy moms like me who are “Damage Criminals” but who still love using their hot tools on a semi-regular basis. The Fructis Damage Eraser has the power to reconstruct hair strength by 90% from root-to-tip so I can curl, straighten, flip, blow-out and ponytail with no worries! HURRAH!
