You can't fix your hair.
And yes, there are lots of conditioners, serums, and shampoos that promise permanent reversal for dry hair in need of restoration. It's marketing! Think about this- hair is technically dead and has no nervous system, blood, or cell regeneration. Because hair is not a living tissue with regenerative ability, it cannot heal. You can use oils, conditioners, or hydrolyzed proteins to disguise the issues temporarily but it’s akin to using make-up, products improve the appearance but they will wash out and you are back to the original problem.
Well formulated, natural conditioners, oil treatments, and masks can absolutely improve texture and appearance and offset more damage with protective ingredients and products, but these products that make our hair soft and shiny, must continually be reapplied to maintain the results.
Brittle locks can be softened and made to appear less damaged by using natural oils and humectants. All of this temporarily smoothes and seals down the cuticle and creates the appearance of healthy looking hair. Dry/damaged hair can be properly rehydrated and softened temporarily by penetrating plant oils and locking in moisture with such oils as almond, marula, coconut, hemp, jojoba, tamanu, evening primrose, apricot and argan.1
