Beauty Tips For Weak, Fragile Hair: The Power of Polymers

Beauty Tips For Weak Fragile Hair The Power of Polymers BlondeMan, your hair’s so weak. You other hair abusers probably know what I’m talking about: a couple of days after you color, you squeeze the ends of your hair and flinch. Your hair feels like superthin strands of uncooked pasta, ready to break off at any minute.

Unfortunately, wimpy, fragile hair like this and consistent coloring treatments go hand in hand. Hair becomes weak and thin from the use of alkaline products, which includes the ammonia in most hair coloring or perming chemicals. Products are considered alkaline when their pH level is above the neutral level of 7 (the pH of water). Is anyone reminded of science class yet?

Luckily, you don’t have to ditch that beautiful if unnatural shade (biased? Me?) to strengthen your meek little locks. Simply pick products containing polymers!

“Cailin, I’m not a scientist and it’s been eight years since I took biology. Please remind me of what polymers are before I close this window in 3…2…1…”

Okay, okay. Polymers are neat little compounds which behave like molecular puzzle pieces, snapping into their infinitesimal neighbors to create larger and stronger versions of themselves. Polymers make up products like plastic and resin, which should give you some idea of how they’ll form a thick, protective barrier around your tiny timid tresses. (Yes, I’ve resorted to alliteration. Sue me.)

For a product that’ll use polymers to fortify your wussy wisps into a manly mane of hair (I’m sorry, I can’t stop!), we recommend Kerastase Expanseur Extra-Corps Fortifying Care For Weakened Hair. There are many other great products on the market these days including the Bio Lustre system, which I successfully used at home to rebuild my hair.

This post wouldn’t be complete without my personal plug for coconut oil, which is one of nature’s most hair-helpful miracles. More coconut oil kudos to come later.: for now, suffice to say that coconut oil is one of the only products which, by nature, will both absorb into damaged hair to moisturize it from the inside and protect the cuticle on the outside. What more could you want?
