Four (4) Ways to Revive and Revitalise Dry Damaged Hair




Sun exposure, the use of chemicals (such as dyes), daily use of heat styling tools are just some of the causes of damage to hair. When hair is damaged it becomes dry, brittle, dull and can even begin to drop. Often, our regular conditioner and moisturizer has little to no effect and we need something more. We track down some products that can help to revive and revitalize dry damaged hair.


Coconut Oil

Applied to dry hair and left overnight, this gorgeous scent will lull you off to sleep and when you wake in the morning the Coconut Oil will have done its work. Wash hair as normal, style as normal and see the fabulous difference to your once dry hair.

Spectrum Naturals Organic Unrefined Virgin Coconut Oil is available at Cold Storage and the 14oz jar is priced at S$12.95


Shea Butter

As with Coconut Oil, this Shea Butter can be applied to dry hair and left over night to see amazing results but we also like to use as a styling product. When your hair is washed, dried and looking fabulous, simply apply a little Shea Butter to your fingertips and apply to your dry or split ends. The Butter will not only mask the split ends but will begin to heal and protect from further damage.

Shea Unrefined Shea Butter is available at Shea stores and 40ml is priced at S$18


Argan Oil

Hair that has become damaged, dull and lifeless can easily be revived with non-greasy Argan Oil. Argan Oil can restore luster and help to lock in moisture as well as repair any damage, and because it is such a non-greasy product, Argan Oil is ideal as a styling product that will not weigh your hair down.

Saadia Organics 100% Pure Argan Oil is available at Shea stores in 10ml and 50ml sizes the price is S$28 and S$65 respectively


DIY Masks

Homemade masks are quick, easy and budget friendly. We like to whip up a hair mask with some everyday things we can find around the kitchen or in the fridge. Two of our favourites are these:-

Overall Beautifying Mask


1 ripe avocado

½ cup coconut milk

3 teaspoons olive oil


Mash up the avocado, add in the coconut milk and oil and stir rapidly to combine fully. Warm up the mix slightly, I would put it in a bowl over a pan of boiling water or use a microwave for a couple of seconds. Apply the mask to your hair, starting at the roots and spreading to the ends. Massage into the scalp then leave for 30 minutes before washing off thoroughly and styling as normal.

De-Frizz Mask


½ cup honey

½ cup natural yogurt

1 tablespoon almond oil


Combine all ingredients. Apply mask to hair and massage from roots to ends. Leave for 20 minutes before washing off thoroughly and styling as normal.
