What Causes Hair to Become Dry
There are many factors that contribute to hair becoming dry and damaged. One is over-processing the hair with too many chemicals. Such as color, chemically straighten the hair. As a season Stylist I recommend one chemical process during a visit to the salon. Another potential cause?Blow-drying and using hot tools too often. When your strands heat up too quickly or too much, it zaps the moisture right out, which causes breakage and damage. To prevent this, leave in conditioner is a great protectors. avoid using hot tools as much as possible, and when you do, turn the setting down so you’re not frying your hair. Leave in sprays are a must have, it cut down on the damage of your hair. Other causes of dry hair include harsh shampoos or frequent over-shampooing, over doing it with too many styling products, and if you take medications it changes the texture and styling ability.
To remedy dry hair, we start by using a good intensive hair treatment, which will replenish your hair’s moisture, seal the cuticle to prevent further moisture loss and damage and increase shine and manageability. There are quite a few option to help give hair its shine back. Massaging a small amount of a hair conditioning oil on mid-lengths to ends every time you wash your hair can help boost shine and lock in some moisture to seal split. While it’s only on the surface, this tender love and care can help improve the look and feel of the hair on a daily basis. For best results, you should receive a hair treatment at least once per week. When picking out a hair treatments that address dryness, it’s important to know your hair texture and condition of your hair to use the key ingredients. Emollient botanical oils, such as baobab seed oil, and other natural oils rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which, unlike other oils, absorb completely into the hair without feeling heavy or greasy. Additionally, I like to add vitamin E, which hydrates and locks in moisture. My deep intense hydration conditioner contains a blend of ingredients including essential B vitamins that strengthen hair from the inside out. For example fresh rose hip contains a lot of vitamin C, and argan oils which soften hair and add more shine, along with algae which helps fight hair loss and reduces scalp inflammation.
I recommend my clients to book a hair moisturizing session each week if you have damaged or chemically treated hair.
