It may sound really silly, but getting rid of damaged hair is tip is the only way to truly repair it. In order to keep hair in good form, get a trim every 2-3 weeks and swear off razor cuts and styling tools including curling irons, blow dryers and flatirons.

According to Allure, relaxers are the harshest on hair, followed by bleach, permanent color, demi-permanent dye and then rinses or glazes.
If you have damaged hair, choose highlights instead of all-over color and ask your hair master should use a glaze instead of dye if you are going darker. For hiding gray hair, stick with demi-permanent formulas.
