Dry hair care tips
Caring for dry hair requires special care, accuracy and regularity. After all, it implies not only external local influence, but also proper nutrition and daily routine.
Dry hair sometimes gives its owners a lot of trouble. After all, it is this type of hair that reacts particularly sharply to climate change, inappropriate cosmetics, and the regular use of styling products. In addition, even the regime of the day, lack of sleep or improper nutrition can lead to increased dryness and brittleness. Therefore, if you find signs of dry hair in yourself, approach the solution of the problem in a complex manner. And then the hair will please you with beauty, strength and health!
Local care for dry hair
Dry hair, like no other, needs gentle care. After all, almost any irritating factor affects their health. This means that it is necessary to constantly give them additional nutrition, to avoid procedures and conditions that dry them out even more. The main factors of local (external or local) dry hair care include the following:
Regular hair nutrition
In order for the hair to shine, stop fluffing, become elastic and soft, try not to forget to pamper them with various special products — masks and balms, compresses and washings. And even if you do not have the opportunity to undergo a professional course of treatment, this is not a reason not to care about curls. You can easily get by with natural homemade masks for dry hair, which are not at all less effective and effective than industrial cosmetics.
When starting to wash, remember that dry hair does not like hot water very much. Set a warm temperature during the procedure itself, and then rinse them with a cool decoction of herbs. Good in the fight against dryness nettle, St. John’s wort, chamomile, calendula.
It should also be remembered that the shampoo should not be applied to the hair in a concentrated form. It will be much more useful if you slightly dilute it with water before the procedure, and apply the already obtained foam to your hair. So you do not disturb the alkaline balance of the scalp and hair.
Drying and styling hair
Dry hair does not like hair dryers, irons and curling irons. Therefore, try to use them as little as possible and only when absolutely necessary. Hot exposure affects the water balance of the hair, and the result is brittleness and section. Choose for yourself more gentle styling methods. For example, after washing, let your hair dry slightly, and then twist it into a loose “muzzle” or “bundles”. After complete drying, dissolve. As a result, you will get beautiful natural curls.
Using hair styling products
In modern cosmetology, products for all types of hair have long been presented. This will allow you to choose exactly what suits you. Do not ignore the instructions and symbols on the packaging. The use of styling products in itself is not dangerous, it is harmful to use the “wrong” products.
Dry hair is often brittle and tangles easily. Try to approach the combing procedure carefully and patiently. Do not pull or tear your hair. This will hurt them even more. It is better to use a comb made of natural materials for the procedure. Although massage brushes are convenient, they stimulate the processes of hair sectioning.
Very often, the condition of the scalp affects the quality of the hair. Therefore, special attention should be paid to caring for it. So, for example, if you feel dryness or peeling, you should at least regularly rub special moisturizers into your scalp. But even better, immediately contact a dermatologist and find out what is the cause of your problem.
Global dry hair care
Dry hair is often a reaction to stress, a bad haircut or diet. Therefore, one should not only take care of the curls locally, but also take a global look at the problem. The main factors affecting the quality of hair can be:
If you notice the first signs of dry hair, review your diet. No external mask will help you like replacing 2-3 products in your daily menu. If your hair has become dry, then you are deficient in vitamin A. This means that you should add carrots, pumpkin, sweet peppers, spinach, broccoli, and dairy products to your diet.
Lack of sleep
If you regularly lack sleep or do not keep a sleep schedule, then your hair will immediately give it away. Try to sleep at least 8 hours a day and do it between 21.00 and 9.00. These hours are the most suitable for the recovery of the body.
This factor can include both the influence of the environment and your trips to the hairdresser to get a perm or dye your hair. But if in the first case, you, unfortunately, cannot change anything (except to move to live in an ecologically clean place), then in the second, everything depends only on you. Try to avoid such procedures. And if there is no choice, then give preference to less chemically saturated drugs. The result may not be as persistent, but at the same time much less harmful.
It should also be remembered that during seasons characterized by sudden changes in temperature and humidity, dry hair should be especially carefully looked after.
Let your hair delight with beauty and health!
