3- Try a Hot Oil Treatment
Hot oil treatments infuse hair with shine and moisture. They're also super simple to do right at home. Apply your favorite hair oil generously to clean, towel-dried hair. You can also raid the kitchen and try olive oil or lemongrass oil.
Cover with a shower cap or plastic wrap and apply heat using a hot towel (fresh from the dryer), your hair dryer, or sit in the sun on a warm day. After heating the oil, allow your hair to cool at room temperature, and rinse with cool water.
Hot oil treatments can be done one to three times per month depending on the amount of damage and how dry your hair is. Too much oil can cause your hair to appear greasy, so be careful not to overdo it.

4- Get a Good Deep Conditioning Treatment
A weekly deep conditioning treatment is a must for repairing your hair's damage and preventing future breakage. But not all deep conditioners are the same.
It's important to find a deep conditioner that works with your hair type, won't weigh your hair down, or cause your hair to feel greasy. A deep conditioner is especially important if you color your hair because damaged hair will fade faster than healthy hair. If possible, work with your hair stylist to find the right deep conditioning treatment for your hair type.

5- Get a Haircut
Let's face it, if your tresses are damaged, your ends are breaking, brittle and splitting, and you feel like you're losing at good hair days, a haircut (or just getting regular haircuts) will save the day.
You don't have to chop it all off (although bobs and pixie haircuts can undo all your damage without having to buy all the products). If you're not ready to go short, get a healthy trim, try layers, reinvent your face framing, or give a nod to some trendy bangs. This will remove some of the damage and make the repair process a little easier
