*This is still a work in progress. I'm continuing to add many more questions, and we are still ironing out a few quirks. But we wanted to make this available as soon as possible.

There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

Can a product repair my hair?
I hate to say it, but there is nothing that can "repair" hair once it's damaged. Legally, cosmetics companies(including those that make conditioners) can say anything they want on the bottle of product and don't have to prove anything. The only place they have to tell the truth is with the ingredients.

This doesn't mean there aren't some great products out there that help smooth, condition, moisturize and tame our hair. I can't recommend any deep conditioners, because all they are are re-packaged basic conditioners that they charge lots more money for, and put in a smaller package. Plus, they don't do anything that regular conditioners do, which is to smooth and condition your hair. But they can't "fix" anything, no matter what they say.

Though there is some research that shows proteins may be able to strengthen hair, I'm not sure how much. Besides, strengthen isn't the same as repair. To be on the safe side, I wouldn't rely on anything to repair my hair. Therefore it's best to not damage your hair at all. That is the surest way to grow healthy hair.
