Does your hair desperately need REPAIR?

We all know that styling, colouring and environmental factors can damage our hair - but do you know the signs that your hair is in desperate need of repair?  Here are a few warning signs to look out for.

Quick Dry - If your coloured hair dries almost instantly after showering it's a sign that your hair has been made very porous by the chemicals in the hair colour.  It's a vicious cycle too, as porous hair will absorb too much pigment into the hair, giving you a too-dark result.  You also may find that your hair colour fades faster, as the porousness of the hair releases too much of the color as you shampoo.

Water Test - When you next find a stray hair, run your finger nail down the shaft to curl it (like curling ribbon with scissors).  If when you drop the curled strand in a glass of water, it doesn't uncurl it means your hair has lost it's elasticity.  Heat styling is normally the cause - it can cause the cuticle to lift up to lift up, releasing valuable moisture and leaving shafts brittle.

Split Ends - The occasional split end is normal - but when the ends of your hair look like uneven straw it's a sign you are continually damaging your hair.  When split ends aren't trimmed regularly the hair is more likely to split further, 'spreading' the damage up the shaft of the hair.  Do not be tempted to trim the ends at home - dull scissors will again, split the hair more!

Dull, dull, dull - If your hair refuses to shine, even with the help of serum or intensive treatment - it's more than likely damaged!

If you're showing the signs of damaged hair, you need to begin a routine for repairing it.  You probably know of salon treatments using advances in technology to repair your locks, but in a few weeks time, you'll be able get this technology at home!  We've got our hands on the new Schwarzkopf range before it's nationwide release on March 20th!  EEEP!

After many years of bleaching, curling and straightening, my hair has definitely suffered. I'm yet to find a product that I feel has truly made a difference to my hair's condition - would be great to give this one a shot and see if it's the difference maker!

I have bleached blonde hair so I am always suffering from dry, damaged hair. I have very thin hair also so it is very fragile and I am always suffering from split ends even though I try to get regular trims. I love using oils in my hair to give it moisture so I would love to give this range a try. I have heard great things about Schwarzkopf :)

Yes please! My hair drives me crazy how it's opposite from one end to the other and it looks awful in places!! It don't have a huge amount of time to spend on it either but I do what I can!

Yes I am looking forward to this trial, my poor hair is a big fizzy dry mess, I need to find something that really works.

My hair has been terrible, constant split ends. I looooove hair oils so would like to give this a shot.

I would to trial this range. I straighten my hair daily and it is dry and breaking and I have a lot of fly aways

I would love to do this trial.. I have been unwell lately and my hair always seems to reflect that. Its currently very dry and needs some great products to get it back to feeling good again

Id love to try this!! My hair is quite porus being that it is bleached blonde.. it often gets alot of breakage and can be quite nerve wracking when I bleach it.. I love smooth healthy looking hair..

My hair is coloured every 3 weeks, I'm in a pool once a add chlorine to that, I dry it wilth a hair dryer and straighten it with a straightener... so it is not happy hair...hence it is always up in a boring ponytail. I want to try a shampoo that's going to make it look healthy, show off the colour and throw away the hair tie. I've tried a lot of products but my hair always seems to come out looking the same - nice hair is important when you are 50... bad hair ages you!

I have my hair coloured or touched up on average every six weeks. I also get it trimmed at the same time to help minimise the damage however it doesn't seem to be as robust as it used to be. It is definitely in need of some TLC to help it bounce back to health. I would love to try this product to try and bring my hair back to its healthy, shiny, natural looking self :-)

I helped a training hair dresser out with a beach wave perm .... she left the chemical on to long it's dry and braking already had one trim from another salon but it's still dry .....this was done in Dec.... pears is love to try the shampoo conditioner and treatment

I need to try this, I have split ends and dull hair :(

I noticed my first grey at 21. Super young! From then they started coming through pretty quick and now I'm a regular dyer; at home or at the salon. I'd love to trial this product as dyeing has a real drying effect, that coupled with the coarser feel of grey hair anyway, I reckon I'd be a great candidate for this trial :)

id love to try this my hair is damaget from heat and colour i have had haircuts but still is really damaged id love to trial this on my hair
