It can feel overwhelming and an impossible challenge to avoid all culprits to maintain gorgeous-looking hair. Take a breath, and take a look at your new damaged hair cheat sheet…
Make a beeline for a nourishing shampoo
To keep damage to a minimum, it’s seriously important to use the right products for your hair type to get the best results and, of course, it all starts with a good shampoo! Don’t simply rush into buying any product that says it’s designed for damage. Instead, remember that damaged hair’s number one need is nourishment so look for shampoo that specifically bring moisture to your hair.
You could try our Pantene Repair & Protect Shampoo with nourishing antioxidants to support hair on its journey to fighting damage, for less breakage and significant shine.
Fall deeply in love with a deep conditioner
Getting your hair back on track does take time, so try to be patient and don’t expect instant results. Integral to the repair process is an intensely moisturising conditioning treatment to help repair the damage, inside and out, rather than simply faking a healthy appearance.

The results? Smooth, manageable hair that’s less prone to breakage. It’s the perfect damaged hair treatment. All the reasons you need to fall deeply in love with our Repair & Protect Conditioner – infused with amino acids & antioxidants, it’s what your hair’s been craving.

Easy tips and tricks to keep damaged hair under control
- Remember prevention, not just cure
It’s important that you treat your hair to fix damage, but it doesn’t mean that you can skip on preventative steps to keep your damage levels down.
Try to be mindful of your styling – nobody’s asking you to throw out your beloved straighteners! – but if you have the option, turn down the temperature on your tongs, wands and straighteners. It’s easy! Just dial it down or use of the cool function on your hair dryer. If you have time, try using a microfibre towel to draw water from your hair before air drying and styling. All these things will reduce your hair’s heat exposure and boost your hair health for less damage.
Even if you hope for long, free-flowing hair, nobody will notice a quick trim in the same way they do a dramatic haircut. Aim for every 6-8 weeks, as this removes the most damaged part of your hair to help keep it healthy-looking. Your friends won’t even know you had a hairdresser’s appointment.
- Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise (your hair!)
No matter the season; sun, salt water, pollution, wind, rain, humidity… there’s no reason to not feel in control (of your hair at least!). Keep our lightweight Pantene Smooth & Sleek Dry Oil in your bag for moisture top-ups on the go for when your hair’s rough and thirsty. This dry damaged hair treatment with a blend of Moroccan Argan oil and Pro-V complex helps to restore hair’s smoothness and shine, finishing your hairstyle and protecting it from frizz all day long.
