How to Repair Damaged Hair.

The elements of summer has taken a toll on my hair. Add in all of the heat styling, coloring and highlights I do to it and it needs some help and fast. Thankfully, Aussie Celebrity Stylist, Sarah Potempa has all the summer hair repair tips for smooth, silky locks. With the help of Sarah's tips and the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Collection and just three minutes, my hair is looking and feeling better and better.

How to Repair Damaged Hair

First things first, give those locks some serious deep conditioning with one of Aussie's 5 custom formulas: Moist, Color, Shine, Strong, or Smooth. Start by rinsing hair with hot water to open the hair's cuticle.

Next, apply 3 Minute Miracle for three minutes and rinse out with cool water to seal the cuticle and lock in moisture. Take those three minutes and create your own experience – listen to music, meditate or just relax.

In addition to cranking up the conditioning routine, mend those ends! For some, that might mean a trim to get rid of split ends and instantly make hair look less frizzy. For others, that may mean concentrating your deep conditioner from mid-shaft to ends.

Be gentle! It’s time to take it easy on your hair. Minimize brushing, as that strips away natural oils. Use a blow-dryer on cool and if you must use a curling iron or straightener, make sure your hair is completely dry and then only use a low setting.
