How to Revitalise Dry & Dull Hair
WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR?
Healthy hair is full of shine and smooth texture, but what should you look out for when it comes to dull and dry hair?
Dull and dry hair doesn’t just mean your client doesn’t wash their hair, it can be a symptom of how your client lives their life, dietary habits and hair care routine. We have done the research for you and combined some reasons why your client might be suffering from dry and dull hair, treatments and services to help fix the issue and what products to recommend.
WHAT CAUSES DRY AND DULL HAIR?
CHEMICAL STYLING AND DAMAGE
This can be one of the major causes in hair dryness. Chemicals can strip the natural moisture from the hair shaft and leave the hair vulnerable to further damage. In this case, you need a product that repairs and seals the hair shaft.
Hot or cold. Winter can wreak havoc on your hair, but did you know that summer can also be your hairs worst nightmare? We all know the damage the sun can do to our skin, but the sun can also damage the hair. Hair needs protecting with sunscreen too. A leave-in moisturiser can also work wonders for your hair in winter.
OVER AND UNDER-WASHING
Either of these can be a major cause of dry hair. Over washing can strip your hair of natural oils which keep your hair moisturised. However, under washing your hair leads to the build-up of products, which can clog the scalp and lead to the natural oils not being released.
These are your hairs worst nightmare. We all lead busy lives and heat styling is often what we turn to in our busy schedules. Drying, straightening, curling…all create drama for your hair which can easily be avoided. In this case, a thermal protector is what you need to use before styling hair.
Genetics can play a huge factor in the type of hair you have. Whilst there isn’t anything you can do to change your hair type; you can incorporate products into your haircare routine which will help with dryness. See our favourites below!
HOW YO FIX LIFELESS AND DULL DRY HAIR
CHOOSE THE RIGHT COLOUR
If your client is someone who likes to regularly colour their hair then we recommend using a colour range that won’t damage the hair. We recommend Colour Ink Professional has it has built in plex.
Plex penetrate into the hair structure and re-build hair bonds and has no compromise on the end result.
ESTABLISH A HAIRCARE ROUTINE
It’s important to recommend your client a great hair care routine that will nourish and protect the hair cuticles. A great tip is to remind your client at the end of washing their hair to seal the cuticle by running their hair under cool-water or applying a conditioning mask.
USE A THERMAL PROTECTANT
If your client must use a heat styling tool it’s important to remind them to seal their hair and protect it with a thermal protection spray or product, this will ensure their hair is damaged by excess heat.
Another great way to help your client with their dry & dull hair is to offer a smoothing and shine treatment this way you can take control of the process and ensure they are getting results.
Our number #1 go-to is Agi One smoothing treatment, it’s unique technology works to smooth and condition hair by releasing nanoparticles directly into and onto the hair shaft.
This enables the treatment to begin to repair the hair from the inside (cortex) while simultaneously creating a protective film over the outer layer (cuticle). Consider it a smoothing system with the added benefit of intense hydration.
