Effective Tips To Help You Moisturize Dry Hair
Today, on Redhead Mom, I’m sharing a partnered post about effective tips to help you moisturize dry hair.
Dry hair feels almost rough when you run your hands through it. They certainly won’t slide through effortlessly. Your hair will also be dull as the moisture and protective oil covering will be missing. This makes it difficult to generate that perfect look for a special occasion. It’s also likely that your hair will be brittle, easily broken and have plenty of split ends.
In short, you need to start moisturizing your hair.
Damaged Or Dry?
You should note that damaged hair is different to dry hair but one condition frequently causes the other. It’s best to identify which is the cause and deal with that, it should mean the other takes care of itself.
The easiest way to tell if your hair is damaged is to see if it feels like glue when it’s wet. That means it’s damaged. If your hair is dull, lacklustre, and has split ends, it’s dry and you need moisturizer.
The Right Moisturizer
Some products, such as this Shea moisture range from Oz Hair & Beauty, are packed full of natural ingredients designed to help your hair hydrate. The products are usually designed with certain hair types in mind but the key element is that they are natural. Artificial additives are more likely to cause further damage.
Don’t forget, moisturizing products come in several forms, you can get moisturizing shampoo and moisturizing conditioner. Choosing one of these products will help to hydrate your hair and strengthen it.
Reduce Your Washes
Your hair is more likely to break when it’s wet. The strands are heavier and easier to tangle. That’s why you should consider shampooing every other day instead of every day. You’ll find it makes a difference to your hair, both in terms of moisture levels and overall health.
In order to protect your hair and infuse it with moisture, you should use a conditioner once a week. This can be at the same time as showering or you can use an overnight mask to really give your hair a chance to recover.
Both are effective and worth doing.
Most people lead busy lives making it hard to find the time to take care of themselves properly. It’s easy to forget to drink enough and rely on coffee to get through the day. Unfortunately, while coffee is a stimulant, it will also dehydrate you.
Instead, try to drink 6-8 glasses of water a day. It’s better for your body and your hair. Water hydrates your hair and helps your scalp produce a natural oil that coats your hair. The natural oil protects your hair and helps it to shine.
You probably use a brush to style your hair. However, a brush is likely to place additional stress on your hair when it catches tangles. Instead, switch to a wide-toothed comb and you’ll find your hair is less damaged when styling.
Of course, it also helps to avoid the heat styling tools as heat will instantly suck moisture from your hair.
