I have seen a lot of ideas for homemade hair reconstructors and conditioners, but other than using Coconut Oil as my favorite hair moisturizer, I have never used home products to make homemade hair reconstructor…until now!
Thanks again to Pinterest, I couldn’t pass up the idea of making my own hair reconstructor.
Hair Reconstructor Vs. Hair Moisturizer
A hair reconstructor is different than a hair moisturizer. A moisturizer adds moisture back into the hair. It is great for dry hair. A reconstructor is like a strengthener. It helps heal damaged, weak hair.
There are several things that make hair need moisturizing treatments and reconstructing treatments. Some hair is just naturally dry and weak, but most of the damage is from:
- highlighting and coloring hair
- not getting regular trims
- outside elements like wind and sun
- heat damage from hair dryers and curling/flattening irons
- certain medications
My hair had damage from all of the above!
