Healthy-looking hair and healthy hair are two different things. Mainstream marketing tells us that dyes, flat irons, and chemical treatments will give us shine and length, but too many learn that these promises get broken as easily as their own brittle hair.

Even if your hair is dry and rife with split ends, there is a way back to health: holistic, natural hair care methods and organic ingredients, backed by years of testing and research.

This ebook will help you understand what healthy hair is, how to grow it, and how to mitigate and prevent damage. With simple at-home diagnostic tests and natural hair care treatments, Rehabilitating Damaged Hair Naturally will teach what your hair needs most and empower you with the confidence to customize your own haircare routine.

More than 70 pages of text, pictures, charts, diagrams, and recipes make Rehabilitating Damaged Hair Naturally both the compass and the encouraging guide that will accompany you on your journey back to healthy hair the natural way.You’ll get access to the book in PDF, .epub and .mobi formats.

    An overview of the basic styling tools you’ll want to have to style and protect your hair.

    13| Growth-stimulating techniques
    Treatments such as scalp massage, the inversion method, and acupressure not only encourage growth, they also allow you to expand your knowledge about what your hair and scalp respond best to, try something new, and empower you to be an active participant in your hair growth

    Comprehensive & Flexible

    This guide is does not exist to market my own products. The things I make are mentioned because the products I make and sell were ones I developed on my journey to healthy hair. I will never claim they are the only way or the best way for every individual. The best hair care routine and products are the ones that work for you. To that end, I’ve included several other recipes and treatments that you should be able to try with items you have in your house, or ones you can easily acquire at your local grocery store.

    Through the entire process my hair was evolving, not only into something longer, but something healthier. One day though you’ll realize that your hair is starting to feel nice. And another day you’ll see it’s starting to shine again. Sometime from then you’ll notice that the detangling comes easier and that you may be able to push that trim back a week. Treat each of these realizations as the victory that it is.

      I found these hair care products and books just in time. I had been using henna and non chemical shampoos to rehabilitate my own hair after a recent horrible shed following having had Covid and going into menopause. Now coming off of oral contraceptives will put more stress on my hair. I will follow all of Melissa’s recommendations in the book, and feel confident my hair can heal a little at the time. I am already experiencing a lot of new growth.
