1. Shampoo For Damaged Hair

Damaged hair needs specially targeted products. The Emergencee Reconstructive System line is specially formulated for damaged hair to repair and actively rebuild the broken protein structures to strengthen hair and prevent further breakage. The first step is to cleanse the hair with the repair shampoo. This shampoo cleanses deeply but is gentle enough for regular use on damaged hair.

2. Conditioner For Damaged Hair

Step 2 in the Emergencee Reconstructive system is applying conditioner. The conditioner should be used after cleansing with the Emergencee Shampoo to help seal in moisture while deeply nourishing hair. This conditioner reconstructs the broken protein structures in hair and uses advanced conditioning technology where needed, leaving hair fibers smooth while retaining the hair’s natural movement.

3. Treatment For Damaged Hair

The third and final step in the Emergencee Reconstructive line is the Reconstructing Treatment. Considered their “signature” treatment, this is actually a pre-treatment that is applied to hair once a week before cleansing with the Emergencee shampoo. Enriched with the same Marine Collagen and high concentration of Elastin Proteins as the shampoo and conditioner, the Reconstructing Treatment helps reduce breakage, recharges weakened hair and improves manageability. Little tidbit: this product was Kim K’s choice treatment to help maintain and repair her platinum hair.

4. Shampoo For Split Ends

If split ends are your dilemma, then their Promend Split End Repairing System is a good option. Again, start with the first step which is the split-end binding shampoo to gently cleanse and remove impurities. Enriched with Elastin Protein and Flax Seed Oil, this shampoo can help realign and seal split ends while smoothing each strand for natural movement.

5. Leave-In Creme For Split Ends

The Split End Binding Leave-In Creme is a leave-in conditioner for split ends. Specially designed technology repairs split ends, smoothes broken hair and helps to repair hair already prone to split ends. Simply apply a small amount to wet or dry hair after using your Promend Shampoo and Conditioner and style as usual for optimal results.

6. Frizzy Hair Set

The City Shield Sheer Frizz Resistance set contains a shampoo, conditioner and leave-in hair creme for 24-hours of frizz and humidity-resistant hair. The shampoo gently cleanses and nourishes hair, while the conditioner works to smooth and restore a protective barrier that helps to shield it from damage caused by the urban environment. Finally, the Damage Defense Hair Creme will shield hair from damage while also providing soft hold for your style. This lifestyle set is enriched with wheat protein and Indian lotus extract and other specialty ingredients that leave a water-repelling layer on the hair surface, protecting it from humidity and ultimately helping you be frizz-free.

7. Shampoo For Fine and Flat Hair

Hair that is fine and/or flat needs some volumizing help. The Diametress Volumizing System Shampoo is your first step to getting that luscious volume. The shampoo gently cleanses the hair and is enriched with carefully-selected ingredients, such as Green Tea Extract and Concentrated Elastin Proteins, which promote volume and increases the diameter of each hair strand.

8. Conditioner For Fine & Flat Hair

The Diametress Volume Conditioner is the second step in transforming your thin or flat hair. Enriched with the same quality ingredients as the shampoo, the conditioner works to seal in lightweight nourishment, helps retain active, flowing styles and ultimately will revitalize thin hair, leaving it thickened and manageable.

9. Body Gel Spray for Fine & Flat Hair

The third and final step for thicker hair is the Diametress Lavish Body Gel Spray. This is a hair thickening spray that gives hair texture and locks volume into your hairstyle. Once you have shampooed and conditioned, you can distribute this body gel spray all over your hair and style as usual. Your hair fibers will be plumped, reinvigorated and left with plenty of body. What this product does not do is leave hair feeling tacky and unruly as some thickening sprays tend to do.
