Dry hair is something that many of us experience and now that the colder months are here, dry hair is even more common. No matter the length or type of hair you have, your locks can become dry – especially towards the ends. The weather, heat styling, and hair colouring can all contribute to hair dryness and make you crave those moisturised, shiny locks. We are here today to share our best tips and tricks for bringing hydration back to your dry hair and ensuring you have a good hair day, every day.
Limit the number of times you wash your hair in a week
Frequent hair washing might feel as if you are moisturising the strands, but the truth is that overdoing it can strip the hair of its natural oils. This can leave it feeling very dry and stringy. Washing your hair 2-3 times per week is enough to keep it clean while also letting your natural oils do their thing by keeping your hair feeling hydrated. Conditioner is there to keep your locks nourished and moisturised, so concentrate it towards the ends of your hair.
Limit heat styling and protect your hair
We always say it but excessive heat styling can lead to dry, frizzy, damaged hair. It can be hard to not reach for the straightener or curling wand, but giving your hair a break from heat can really help to restore essential moisture. As we are spending more time inside at the moment, now is the perfect chance to give your hair a well-deserved break. If you need to use heat tools, always use a heat protectant to ensure you are keeping your locks as healthy as possible.
Pamper yourself with hair masks and oils
During the colder months, nourishing hair masks will really help to give your hair that boost that it needs. A deep conditioning treatment once a week is the perfect excuse for a little me-time while also helping to keep your locks ultra-hydrated. A good quality hair oil is also a great investment and will really help to nourish the dry ends of your hair. If you find your hair is looking quite dull and dehydrated, schedule in an at-home pamper session for yourself!
Go easy on the bleach
Constant bleaching of your hair does eventually take a toll and if you find that colouring your hair frequently is really drying it out, it may be a good time to take a break. Use this time we are spending at home to let your hair recover and for the natural oils to rehydrate your locks!
