Top hair treatments to treat different hair issues

Let’s take a look at different hair treatments meant for different hair types
09 April, 2018

The debate on different kinds of hair treatments has been ongoing, and the honest-to-goodness answer is that each hair treatment is tailor-made to address a particular need. Yes, there are catch-all, more egalitarian formulas – just as there are shampoos and conditioners for ‘normal’ hair – but with these products, the beauty is in the bespoke.

Often clients think of using a hair treatment when their strands start showing signs of a specific problem. However, you can suggest a treatment for them which they can incorporate in their hair care regime. Explain them how hair treatments can personally rock their worlds and breathe a new life into their tresses and therefore are worthy of that extra step in their hair care regimens.

Best Hair Treatment for Every Hair Need

We have put together a simple rundown of the treatments you should look for depending on your client’s specific hair type or need. Read on to see which treatments are best for your client’s hair type, and, most importantly, how often they need to get these done.

Hair type: Normal to dry

Treatment: Concentrated moisture

This hair type can be smooth, healthy-looking, shiny virgin hair. Even the strongest of soldiers need their rest. Give your clients’ locks a respite from weekly wear and tear with a once-a-week deep-conditioning treatment that aims to revive and prep strands for the week ahead.


Hair type: Damaged, breakage-prone

Treatment: Intense moisture, strengthening

Daily heat styling, the occasional aggressive colour appointment and loads of time outdoors may have left your clients’ hair visibly tired-looking and with a slight rough feel, especially towards the tips. They are also no stranger to split ends, and despite their best efforts at choosing a gentler, more hydrating shampoo and conditioner or using a heat protectant, they are rocking damaged goods. Such damaged hair need a twice-to thrice-a-week moisture and smoothness boost. Indulge in a potent shot of moisture via an emollient rich treatment mask to ensure that your client’s hair regain its strength and suppleness.


Hair type: Curly or afro/natural-textured

Treatment: Consistent moisture, frizz-fighting

They say, “Curly hair is the clingy girlfriend of the hair type universe.” We couldn’t agree more. Curly hair needs constant attention but in varying degrees per day. A bi-weekly, deep-conditioning session (once every three days is ideal) with an intense nourishing treatment – intensive repair deep treatment mask is best to keep frizz-prone, naturally textured coils springy and with a healthy sheen. Prolong its moisturized, detangled feel midweek with leave-in conditioners, that also offer a daily shot of slip, but without the heavier weigh-down.


Hair type: Coloured, chemically processed

Treatment: Deeply restorative

Colouring, chemically straightening or perming those locks is probably the most potent level of damage your client can inflict on their hair strand, as most of these processes involve altering the hair’s actual structure together with heat application. This type of hair has suffered acute level of chemical exposure and damage, which lends itself to sudden breakage or instant visible porosity. This means, you need an IV drip for your client’s dehydrated locks, and therefore an intense rinse-off treatment once-a-week is recommended. You could also recommend them to apply deep-conditioning cream and leave it to set for several minutes after regular conditioner every second day.
