Intro to How to Deal with Over Processed Hair
Hair is often a central part of a person’s identity and self-expression.
When hair is over processed, it can have a significant impact on your emotional well-being.
It can cause feelings of self-consciousness, frustration, embarrassment, and anxiety.
It’s natural to worry about the long-term effects of the damage, hair loss, and future hair.
It can be unbelievably frustrating and time-consuming to style your hair
how you want, and it takes a long time to repair the damage.
Fortunately, there are several actions you can take to help heal and manage your over processed hair.
How to Deal with Over Processed Hair
Here are some actions you can take now to manage and heal your over processed hair:
1. Avoid harsh hair care products: It’s vital you avoid harsh chemicals in your hair care routine. You must use gentle, natural, and nourishing hair care products. Make sure they are SLS (sodium laurel sulfate) free and chemical-free, silicone free and nasties free. AND most importantly, be sure you avoid silicone and its dastardly derivatives that can seep down into the follicle to choke hair growth and disrupt the anchoring molecules of the hair. Keep in mind that silicones just coating the hair strand, not allowing any botanicals and moisturizing agents into the hair to help heal it.

2. Deep condition regularly:
To help repair damage and restore moisture to your hair, it’s essential to use a deep conditioner at least once a week. And, beware…just because it’s organic doesn’t mean it is silicone free. PLUS, the heaviness of essential oils, shea, organic coconut oil, sunflower oils, and more will smother the hair and follicles. In a pinch, it at least is not toxic generally speaking. It’s just a layer that the scalp then has to reject by increasing sebum…..super oily hair is the result…. and still some hair loss.
3. Avoid heat styling: Try to avoid heat styling as much as possible because the heat just further adds to the damage. If you do use heat styling tools, like a blow dryer, curling wand, flat iron, or curling iron, use the lowest heat setting possible.
Also, use a leave-in heat protectant spray to help protect your hair from further damage, but make sure it’s silicone free.
Also, if you intend to do a deep conditioning treatment, do not use heat. The reason for heat is to swell the cuticle and expand the hair cuticle to allow more conditioning to the interior of the strand, which might be okay for typical hair conditions.
Unfortunately, overprocessed hair is already horrifically damaged and typically has a wide open cuticle or maybe patches of missing cuticle. So, to add heat is simply expanding and stretching the very core of the hair, thus “boiling it” further, which means more damage in the final turn!
4. Trim hair regularly: To help prevent further damage, regular trims get rid of split ends, so damage doesn’t travel up the hair shaft. Depending on your style, aim to get a trim every 4-6 weeks. Let your haircutter know that you don’t mind if they cut so little that you can hardly tell. Cutting the splits typically is the last 1/16th of an inch! That means the cut hair should be like a light dust on the floor. Of course, if you are willing to lose more length, go for it and focus on new healthy hair growth filling in over time!
5. Eat a nutrient-dense diet: It is important to take care of your body from the inside out. Your daily protein intake is important because it provides the amino acids that makeup keratin, which is the building block of your hair. Lean meats, beans, fish, eggs, dairy, kale, and asparagus are great protein sources. By the way, cooked yolks do NOT have the same value as liquid yolks. That would mean overeasy eggs vs. hard cooked.
Other forms would be Bearnaisse Sauce, Mayo, Hollandaise Sauce, authentic Caesar Salad Dressing, etc. to get the value of the super-nutritious egg yolk (the vinegar or lemon juice ‘cures‘ the yolk from bacteria that alarms people).
If you are vegan, there are choices, yet stay away from soy. Many aren’t aware that soy protein is responsible for phytohemagglutinin, which is a plastic-like complex that lodges in the body’s finest capillaries. Hair follicles and the eye’s retina have some of the finest capillaries, easily damaging them by phytohemagglutinin. Otherwise, when you see your hair falling, you won’t be able to say we didn’t warn you.
Healthy fats, such as coconut, olive, and flaxseed, provide your body with long-chain polyunsaturated fats and linoleic acids necessary for hair structure. Notice soy oil is NOT on the healthy list.
Fruits and vegetables are essential to provide a variety of nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B5, vitamin B12, folate, zinc, and niacin. Inositol, which can be found in nuts, leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, and whole grains, helps improve the function of scalp cells. Avoid refined sugar as much as possible.
