I’ve been trying to be more intentional about taking care of my hair in between cuts and colors. It’s usually a fried mess by the time I’m due for another appointment, but since incorporating these products into my hair care routine, I’ve noticed a HUGE improvement in the overall texture and health of my mane.
Here’s what my hair looked like BEFORE using the CER-100 & Aveda Damage Remedy.
I’ve overprocessed my hair for years. It’s been all shades of pink, purple, red, black, brown and everything in between. All those intense color appointments have wreaked havoc on my hair. Especially the ends. I’m hesitant to get it cut very often because I like the length, so I needed something to preserve my hair without taking off the length and these products are definitely helping!
Here’s what my hair looks like now with regular use of the CER-100 & Aveda Damage Remedy.
Once a week I’ll apply this CER-100. This was a random Amazon find, but I went for it because it had over 2,000 incredible reviews and for the price I figured it was worth a shot.
I’m so glad I invested in this little $8 bottle because it’s worked WONDERS for my hair! It’s softer, stronger, and the frizz (especially on my ends) is almost non-existent. It just feels so much silkier and healthy.
After getting some advice from a hairdresser friend of mine, I only use this treatment once a week (she said that overuse will cause my hair to become brittle & frizzy because this works like a keratin treatment). I shampoo and condition my hair like normal, then I’ll follow-up with the CER-100. I work it into my hair with my fingers and then run through it with a wet brush. I typically stay in the shower as I let it sit on my hair (10-15 minutes). I’ll pull my hair up with a clip and then rinse it out. Another option that works just as well is to go through your shower routine as usual, ring out the excess moisture from your hair, apply the CER-100, pull up your hair, and then hop out of the shower while you let it sit and work its magic. A couple of my girlfriends will do it this way and keep it in for 20-30 minutes while they do a few things around the house and then rinse it out. It works great either way and I swear you’ll be able to tell a difference after the first use.
Now the Aveda Damage Remedy is considerably more expensive. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m always on the hunt for a great deal and will usually forego the more expensive version for an equally incredible less expensive dupe, but not with this. I feel like this leave-in treatment has saved my hair from what I’ve done to it in the past and keeps it from getting any worse.
I apply the Aveda Damage Remedy to my damp hair before drying. I typically just work it into the bottom portion of my hair because that’s the part that’s been overprocessed the most. I’ll run it through my hair with my fingers and then proceed with drying. I use this after each time I wash my hair because I feel like it does an amazing job of keeping it healthy and free of frizz and breakage.
I can tell a considerable difference in the overall texture and softness of my hair since I started using both of these products and the breakage & split ends aren’t near as prevalent as they’ve been in the past. I can’t recommend them enough!
