No matter how lifeless and brittle your hair looks, with effort and time you can bring it back to life. Avoiding damaging treatments and caring for your hair gently can uncover your hair’s natural luster.
Having dry hair means your hair is fragile, so avoid handling it roughly otherwise you will get split ends and even breakage. When you wash, dry or comb your hair, think of it as a delicate thing that needs extra care, and this means no scrubbing or pulling.
When you wash you hair, use your finger tips gently instead of roughly scrubbing, and rinse with lukewarm water not hot water because it is extra damaging. Gently squeeze excess water from your hair and pat it dry with a towel instead of twisting it out.
Shampooing your dry hair every day will make it more brittle and even drier because the natural oils produced by your scalp do not get the chance to nourish it. Shampooing two or three times a week is recommended to give your hair the chance to benefit from those nourishing oils.
If your roots get a little oily, use dry shampoo, which is a great remedy without having to wash your hair. Stop using a hair dryer and let your hair dry on its own. Actually, the hot air of the hair dryer does not give your hair the chance to get healthy because the heat is quite damaging and leads to split ends and breakage.
On special occasions, when you have to style your hair with a dryer, adjust it to the cool or warm level and keep it several inches from your head. Hair brushes leave a lot of damage in their wake, and since your dry hair is breakable, use a wide- toothed comb instead of a brush. This will not cause much pulling or breaking to your hair.
