Curling your hair or straightening them out looks very chic. Heat-treatment of hair has become very common now-a-days. However, once the glam wears off, you are left with dry, frizzy hair and a constant anxiety of what to do to re-gain the health of your hair.
The sun can also take its toll on your hair. Another cause of parched and withered hair is excessive blow drying. Steaming hot showers damage the hair as much as heat treatment does. Dyeing the hair also damages it. Don’t fret. We are here to guide you all about dry hair treatments in depth.
- HYDRATE YOUR HAIR
Restoring the moisture of your hair is very important. Buy a good hydrating shampoo and massage it into hair roots. Using a proper conditioner is another step towards hydrating your hair. Leave-in hair conditioners can be used to keep your hair hydrated throughout the day. Go for the shampoos and conditioners that contain more proteins.
- CUT DOWN THE HEAT TREATMENT
Or if you don’t want to cut it down, buy sprays that help protect your hair from heat. Dab them on before curling or straightening your hair. Furthermore, if your hair damage is resulting from excessive blow drying, try to limit it.
- LET THE NATURE DO ITS WORK
Always try to air dry your hair after washing. Try to avoid blow drying as much as you can. It is very essential for the health of your hair.
- TRIM IT PERIODICALLY
This helps get rid of all the split ends and fasten the growth of hair.
- BE GENTLE TO YOUR HAIR
Do not tug and pull at your hair. While combing, take your time with all the tangled tresses. Don’t try to rip your hair apart. It causes a lot of damage to your hair. Use wide toothed combs for this purpose.
- Avoid chemicals
Hair products that contain chemicals must be avoided as much as possible. Hair mousse, dyes, hair gels and styling creams fall in this category.
- SAY YES TO VINEGAR
Vinegar restores the pH level of your hair and not only restores the shine and luster of the dry and damaged hair, but also combats dandruff. Oil your hair overnight and wash them with vinegar just before shampooing for maximal effect.
- GO COCO
Coconut oil is one of the best dry hair treatments. After washing your hair, apply a small amount of coconut oil to the ends. It works wonders.
- TREAT THEM WITH A PROTEIN MEAL
Rubbing some mayonnaise into your hair before you go to bed every night and covering it with a cap is a good source of proteins for them. It fattens up your hair. Aloe Vera, honey, banana, eggs and yogurt are also good protein sources for your hair.
- Consult a stylist
Visit your salon and ask for specific treatments for dry and damaged hair in case things are out of your control.
Dry and damaged hair can be easily managed great care and caution. It takes time, though. Being patient with your hair is worth it. After all, beautiful hair is a woman’s crown.
