Simple Yet Effective Tips To Deal With Dry Hair

Experiencing dry hair is one of the most common hair concerns that is faced by everyone and can affect one's confidence and self-esteem. Some major causes of dry hair are sun exposure, heat styling, humidity, lifestyle habits, environmental changes, using the wrong products for dry hair and more. Hair becomes dry when it doesn’t absorb or retain enough moisture to maintain its texture and brightness. But guess what! This situation is also avoidable. To help you achieve the hair of your dreams with ease, here are some tips for dealing with dry hair.

Tips for dealing with dry hair

• Oil regularly

Oiling the hair regularly helps to seal the moisture in the scalp and strands. This is also an effective way to give your hair the essential nutrients it needs. All you need to do is heat the hair oil for a few seconds and massage it onto your scalp and strands thoroughly. Don’t forget to include your ends. Allow it to sit on your head for about 40-60 minutes or leave it overnight for a boost of extra nourishment.

• Avoid over-washing

Over-washing the hair is the big NO as this will strip off the natural oils from the hair and leave it feeling drier. If you wash your hair regularly, switch to alternate days and if you wash it three times a week, switch to two times a week. This will maintain the natural sebum of your scalp and leave your hair feeling soft, supple, and healthy. Moreover, use lukewarm water every time you wash your hair.

• Use a gentle shampoo

Not all shampoos do good to your hair. Some shampoos contain chemical ingredients and harsh cleansing agents that steal the nourishment of your hair. Choose a mild, paraben-free banana shampoo for dry hair to remove dirt, dust, debris, and grime from your scalp while giving it the nourishment it needs. Depending on your hair type and needs, you can also try the aloe vera shampoo, papaya shampoo or macadamia shampoo.

• Don’t skip the conditioner

Using a conditioner after every hair wash is non-negotiable. This is because a conditioner helps to restore the lost moisture, protects the hair from damage and is the key to having healthy, smooth, and soft hair. Use a silicone-free banana conditioner for dry hair to protect your hair’s natural elasticity. Another product for dry hair is the aloe vera conditioner.

• Say NO to heat styling tools

There is no doubt that heat styling tools are a great way to achieve the desired look but unfortunately, these tools are one of the biggest culprits of dry hair. Using heat styling tools leaves your hair feeling fried and dried by breaking down the natural protein bonds of the hair. We recommend avoiding the use of heat styling tools as much as possible. Instead, you can try opting for fancy hairstyles such as half-bun, top-notch and more to enhance your hair game. However, while using your straightener or curler occasionally, set the tool to the lowest temperature and apply a heat-protectant serum post-styling to protect your hair from further damage.

• Use a hair mask

Pamper your hair with the love and care it needs by including a vegan hair mask in your hair care routine. A hair mask allows the nourishing ingredients to penetrate deep into the scalp and makes your hair feel restored on the go. Try the banana hair mask to help your hair feel extra hydrated and healthy. Use it twice a week for best results.
