Color usages, new hair treatments, excessive heat styling or exposure under the sun; your hair is continuously exposed each day to harmful external factors. Every once in a while, women have to experience some sort of problems related to their hair, the most common one being dry hair.
No one likes to look at dull and dry hair, everyone dreams about having luxurious silky hair; similar to ones shown in hair advertisements. Dry hair is a condition, not a hair type. Hence, how we treat our hair will influence how healthy or unhealthy they look. Similar to our skin, our hair also need moisture so try and focus on reversing the damage by taking into account the following tips:
Decrease The Use Of Heating Tools
Heating tools include hair straighteners and curling rods or using the blow dryer on daily basis. If you feel the absolute need to use them on a daily basis, then your hair might be receiving excessive heat which is not a good thing. To improve the condition of your hair, apply a heat protectant serum or spray on your hair before directly using any of these tools. Focus on air-drying your hair to protect possible damage if you still do plan to use a blow dryer.
Moisturize Your Hair
If you are looking to resolve the issue of dry frizzy hair then enhancing the use of moisture can do magic to your overall hair. Moisture can be added through a good hair conditioner or applying a hair mask. Include these methods into your daily routine, as hydration is one of the most effective ways to deal with dry hair.
Do Not Take Steamy Showers
A hot shower may feel like a blessing after a long day but it leads to your hair becoming dry. A steamy shower has very high temperatures affecting the essential oils in our hair. No matter how good a hot steamy shower feels, try using warm water. Decreasing your time in the shower can also help with your hair becoming less dry and also help the environment in conserving water.
Brush Your Hair Carefully
It is essential to understand that damaged hair break easily thus we should brush them gently. Try using a comb or a brush to detangle your hair before getting into the shower or use a hair oil serum on wet hair strands in order to gently untangle them with a hairbrush after the shower. It can further help you eliminate frizz.
Choose Your Shampoo Wisely
Due to a wide array of new hair treatments and styling options being available, there is no shortage on types of products available nowadays. Just don’t go buying a shampoo because the label says for dry hair. Do your research; all shampoos have some kind of ingredients that are harmful for our hair. Buy a sulphate free shampoo or look for shampoos with more natural remedies such as avocado oil and shea butter. These both work wonders on dry hair.
Dry hair is more vulnerable to damage, so focus on implementing these tips on a daily basis or a few times a week at least so that you are able to enjoy soft and healthy nourished hair.
