For those who struggle with dry hair, you know you can’t just snap your fingers and hope to eliminate the problem. However, there are few things you can do that, with a little consistency, can help manage dryness and maintain moisture.
12 Tips For Girls With Dry Hair:
1. Limit how often you wash your hair.
Shampooing frequently strips your hair of its natural oils. Less really is more in this case.
2. Condition often.
You really can’t condition dry hair often enough! Condition even if you decide to skip the shampoo.
3. Use products designed for dry hair.
These products are usually creamy rather than clear and help hair retain moisture with hydrating ingredients such as aloe vera or other natural oils.
4. Protect your hair from the elements.
Sun, the wind, saltwater and dry air tends to make your hair drier. Wear a hat or use products that have UV protectants in them.
5. Go easy on the hair treatments.
Hair color, highlights and even chemical smoothers can cause healthy hair to become dry. Ask your stylist for ammonia-free options that are more gentle.
6. Never brush wet hair.
Wet hair is vulnerable hair and is easily broken with a hairbrush. Use a wide tooth comb instead.
7. Remember everybody’s hair is different and what may work for your bestie, won’t work for you.
Try different products, both commercial and natural and different routines to find something that works for your hair.
8. Go easy on the hair dryer.
Try to let your hair dry naturally as often as possible to give your hair a break from the heat.
9. Turn the heat down.
If your styling tools have multiple heat settings, go for a medium to medium/high heat. Never use high heat on dry tresses.
10. Keep hair trimmed.
To keep it from breaking, regular trims will help keep your hair healthy looking.
11. Deep conditioning treatments are a must.
Try to do these once a week if possible. If you can’t do it weekly, try every two weeks.
12. Use a thermal protector.
While this is true for every type hair, it is especially important for girls with dry hair!
