Dry hair. We all suffer from it at some point. You rush into salons to buy expensive products to relive the dryness. We get it. You want a solution.
What causes dryness?
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!
