Dryness! It is one of the common hair problems we face. Seeing dry, rough and frizzy hair after waking up in the morning makes us really upset. And so begins the struggle with hair for the entire day. If you feel the same way with your hair, then instead of being upset try and use some easy ways to care for your hair. Trust me, with a little bit of proper care, you can make your hair healthy and moisturized.
But before that, let’s find out what makes the hair so dry. Our hair can become dry for many reasons; wrong hair care product, regular blow drying, heat styling, sun’s harmful UV rays etc. If your hair is exposed to one or more of these, your hair can become really dry.
Now that you know what makes the hair dry, let’s find out how using a simple routine can make your dry hair soft and smooth!
Start with fresh hair
First, trim your hair properly for a fresh look. If your hair is excessively dry, it can cause breakage towards the end, this not only makes it difficult to style your hair but your hair also seems more coarse and damaged. Hence, proper trimming is really important for healthy growth and a fresh look.
Shampoo following the right rules
Excessive shampoo damages the sebum, as in the natural oil in our hair. The right amount of sebum is important for the natural shine of our hair. So, for those of you who have the habit of shampooing your hair every day, my suggestion to you would be to shampoo every other day instead. And to keep your hair soft and moisturized, apply conditioner afterwards. Select a shampoo which specializes in dry hair and doesn’t hamper the natural oil of it. Tresemme Botanique Nourish and Replenish Shampoo & Conditioner can be an excellent solution for dry hair. Its natural oil formula gently cleans the hair and keeps it nourished and soft. This shampoo is even safe for those who have colored hair.
Heat styling must be reduced
If you highly depend on heat styling every day to curl, straight or to bring volume to your hair, then that is something you must reduce. Because, these forms of heat styling is one of the reasons for your hair becoming dry. And if you blow dry your wet hair, then you must make sure that it is set to low or medium heat. Try and keep at least 6 inches of distance between your hair and the dryer; this can reduce the damage to your hair, even if just a little bit.
Avoid warm water
Try and avoid warm water as much as possible to reduce the dryness of your hair and to keep it healthy and smooth. Excessively warm water damages the essential oil of your hair and makes it dry. So, try and use cold or slightly warm water.
Save your hair from the sun!
Harmful UV ray from the sun is just as harmful for our hair as it is for our skin. So, try to use a scarf or a hat when getting out into the sun. You can try and use Aloe Vera gel to reduce the sun damage to your hair. Aloe Vera’s cooling properties and collagen are really helpful in reducing the sun damage. Also, Coconut oil helps repair the sun and heat damage to your hair. So, try and massage coconut oil on your hair once a week, this will work as a deep conditioning treatment for your hair.
Have faith in natural hair masks
