Changing my hair color 18ish times over the past 2 years has become a resident joke among my family and friends. “So, what do you collect? Besides hair colors.” “I forgot if you were blonde or brunette today.” To be fair, the mockery is well deserved. As a former pageant girl, my poor hair has paid the price for my capriciousness. Although I’m fairly confident I’ll stick with my natural dark brown color, I recognize that I need to handle it with white gloves. My go-to salon brand has always been Nexxus, so when I saw that an Emergencee Reconstructive System for damaged hair was available, I took it as God telling me to comfort my newly-colored hair by trying these products.
The Nexxus Emergencee Reconstructive System is formulated with concentrated, 100% pure Elastin Protein and Marine Collagen. In layman’s terms, it’s made with two fancy pants ingredients for breathing responsiveness and resilience into damaged hair. The Nexxus Emergencee regimen alleges to actively repair the internal structure of fibers and leave hair looking and feeling strong.
Nexxus Emergencee Line Review
The Nexxus Emergencee shampoo and conditioner are downright wonderful. All the harmful dyes and pageant-worthy thermal styling have produced more split ends than I ever thought possible, so when my hair is wet, it’s usually virtually impossible to brush it out. Based on my hair dresser’s recommendation, I bought a new wet brush, have vowed to only wash my hair 2-3 times per week, and let the Emergencee conditioner sit for 2+ minutes. My hair feels stronger, looks more radiant, and is so much easier to manage.
What makes this regimen especially effective, in my opinion, is the concentrated protein Reconstructing Treatment. Nexxus stylists designed a 4-step process to yield the absolute best results for chemically treated hair. They recommend using one treatment per week. You can buy each tube individually or you can purchase a 4-count pack. After four weeks of use, I saw/felt instantly improved manageability, less breakage, and increased shine. My results were definitely reason to smile, especially given all the torture my hair has endured.
How to Use the Nexxus Emergencee Line
- Start by freeing you hair of excess oil with the Nexxus Emergencee Shampoo.
- Completely cover your head with one tube of Nexxus Emergencee Reconstructing Treatment. Work it through your wet hair. Don’t worry if its texture leaves your hair feeling stiff and coarse (I admit that it freaked me out). I googled it, and this apparently just means that the treatment is working hard to nourish with protein. Let it sit for 5 minutes and then rinse it out with lukewarm water.
- Shampoo your hair again to remove any leftover residue.
- Condition with Nexxus Emergencee Conditioner to retain moisture and softness.
Where to Purchase the Nexxus Emergencee Line
You can shop all the products featured in this post below! I purchase all my Nexxus products from Target, since it’s usually cheaper than Amazon or Ulta. You can also purchase directly from Nexxus.com, but shipping can get pretty costly.
Before you haul yourself into a high-end hair salon and pay for an expensive protein or keratin treatment, do yourself (and your hair) a favor and try the Nexxus Emergencee line. My hair has never felt stronger, and it’s completely changed the way I feel about thermal styling. It’s rich, healthy, and finally able to handle the voluntary wear and tear of voluminous curls and teased up-do’s. Freaking finally.

Love nexus for damaged hair!
Thanks for the suggestion Stephanie! My hair is so damaged I need all the advice I can get (:
I will have to keep this product in mind when I need to give my hair a deep treatment!
My hair is so damaged but this just might do the trick.
I definitely need to check these out on my next trip to get more shampoo/conditioner.
I would definitely try this product out, especially since over the years the heat damage I’ve done to my hair is seriously awful!

My hairdresser has mentioned this product, but I always thought she was just trying to push it on me. Obviously it actually works!!

I really like the sound of the reconstructing treatment! I’ve never heard of a product like that going hard on your hair but if it works, it works! Really great in depth review. I’m gonna have a look online and see if it’s available over here. I keep wanting to dye my hair again but I worry about the damage, this might be my saviour!
Great products! We are all so hard on our hair but am so thankful for products like these!

I am most definitely the type of customer they had in mind when they made this, hahaha. I really need to try this out and see if it works!
Ever since going blonde in high school I have really struggled with finding products that help replenish my hair! I’m going to grab this on my next store outing!
Sounds like an awesome line! I dye my hair about once a year to in the winter because I want the dark hair, fair skinned look. May need to check this out. Thanks for the review!

I’ve only heard good things about Nexxus and have been wanting to give it a try. I love trying out new hair products and seeing what does and doesn’t work with my hair.
Ouuu I’ve actually never tried Nexxus products! I am definitely going to look into these. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

I’ve only died my hair maybe three times in my life, but I’m considering going darker for fall– I don’t know yet. But it’s nice to know that Nexxus has a hair care line that can reverse any and all damage! I’ll have to try it.
Melissa | These words are my own.
I think everyone could use this. With all the blow-drying, straightening, curling, etc. Our hair takes a beating!

I haven’t tried Nexxus, but a few of my friends use it and love it! I just might need to try it!
