Solutions for Damaged Hair Hair Challenges

Damaged Hair

What Is Damaged Hair? 

Damaged hair generally occurs when certain aggressors such as heat, friction or chemical treatments attack the hair’s protective outer layer. This outer layer is known as the hair cuticle, when the cuticle is damaged it leaves cracks that open causing the hair to become dry, brittle, and frizzy. When your hair is damaged, it is then more prone to breakage and further damage.  

For many women, damaged hair can be a real nightmare when hair is lacking moisture and density. But thankfully there are a variety of solutions you use to help repair damaged hair and maintain your hair’s health. 

Below we will outline some of the different types of damaged hair, what causes damaged hair, and provide you with the best solution recommended by our professional hair care specialist at the Lounge Hair Studio.

For more information on damaged hair and a deeper dive into the various types of hair structures, you can follow the link here.

Different Types of Damaged Hair

Whether you take all the necessary precautions to help prevent hair damage, such as breaks from heat styling, and extended breaks between colouring many women find their hair still shows signs of damage. This isn’t unusual and the daily wear and tear alone can start to damage your hair over time.

Some of the most common types of hair damage include:

Split Ends 

Many women experience some type of hair damage at some point, and split ends are one of the most common types of damage. Split ends can be obvious, and you are able to see this clearly in the hair strand if split into two or more heads. Another clear sign that your hair is damaged with split ends is if your hair begins to tangle more than usual, and your overall hair starts to feel weaker in its condition.

Chemical Damage

Generally speaking it is the “overuse or overlapping” of services such as perms and relaxers which can cause chemical damage. Although these treatments do dry the hair, choosing the right products and treatments can prevent and reverse damage which may cause the hair to break easily.  

Heat Damage 

The daily use of hot hair tools can have extensive damage to your hair’s health over a long period of time. Heat from these tools opens the hair cuticle which in turn dries it out to make it easier to style. These heated hair tools over time can have long-term damaging effects unless you look to protect it with effective products and treatments. 

Colour Damage

Many women notice deterioration in their overall hair health when they regularly colour their hair without the help of a professional hairstylist. When hair colouring is done without a professional, using the wrong chemicals can have damaging long-lasting effects on your hair.


At the Lounge Hair Studio, we take priority in looking after the overall hair health of our clients, by selecting the right chemical and colour products to ensure hair health isn’t compromised at any time. Remember however that anything that is external to your hair will produce a little bit of damage, no matter how well you apply it or how cautious you are with it.
