Hair Treatment FAQs

How can I make my hair grow faster?

There a few things you can do to make your hair grow quicker, which include nourishing hair treatments. These products help keep your mane in tip top condition, maintaining hair health and strength to help it grow faster. Scalp treatments, hair oils and massages will also promote and stimulate hair growth. Simply add these into your regular hair care routine to see a long-lasting impact.

Other top tips including getting frequent trims to remove split ends and not washing your hair as regularly to maintain your hairs' natural oils. Also, we recommend avoid over-using heat styling tools. And when you do use heat on your lengths, make sure you use a heat protective product to prevent any further problems.

What are the best at-home hair treatments?

Whether you can't get to the salon or just want to save your pennies, you can use professional quality hair treatments in the comfort of your own home. Hair care brands have formulated nourishing, hardworking formulas to ensure you hair feels soft, healthy and strong. Think hydration-boosting hair masks, invigorating scalp treatments and shine-enhancing hair creams.

Here at Cosmetify, we have a collection of the best at-home hair treatments from brands like Olaplex, Kérastase, Amika and more. Use our filters to search by brand and ingredient preference to find hair-boosting properties, such as jojoba oil, tea tree oil, cocoa butter and argan oil.

What is the best hair treatment for damaged hair?

Whether it's from over-styling, heat tools or too much bleach, hair is susceptible to damage and breakage. Combat the problems with some must-have hair treatments you can easily add to your everyday hair care routine. This includes hair care products from leading brands, such as Philip Kingsley, Sachajuan, Balmain, Cantu and Bondi Boost.

For really dry, damaged tresses we recommend nourishing hair masks and hair lotions, which help reconstruct your hair and add a major boost of moisture. Serums are also a winning formula for post-shower treatments. Simply apply a few drops for long-lasting hydration. Keeping your hair conditioned and strong will ensure it looks and feels healthier for longer.

Do hair masks actually work?

The simple answer is yes! Not only can hair masks repair your locks after heat damage, but they are also the perfect solution to dry, colour-treated hair. It's always a good idea to treat your mane to some extra TLC, especially if you've been over styling or over colouring. Hair masks can restore vitality, strength and shine in a matter of minutes.

Most hair masks offer conditioning benefits, but to find a hair mask to suit your specific concern, use our handy drop-down filters. You can search by hair type, hair concern and even ingredient preference. This is perfect if you want to find vegan-friendly or cruelty-free hair treatments.
