With all of the hair tools most of us use everyday, it is very common to have a problem with dry hair.
Not only is it difficult to manage it can also be difficult to style too. But fear not it is quite easy to hydrate the hair once you know how.
Watch the heat
First things first be conscious of how often you use heat on your hair. Hair drying, curling and straightening daily are all top contributors to dry and brittle hair. If you are using heat tools try to use them on the lowest heat setting possible. When using a hot tool use a heat protector spray first. Always wait till it dries in before using.
Use the right shampoo
Make sure you are using the correct shampoo for your hair type. If your hair is dry and brittle make sure you use the appropriate shampoo. Watch for any shampoo containing sulphates. Sulphates are used in strong household cleaners and strip the hair and leave it dry and brittle.
Use a hydrating mask
Use a deep conditioning hair mask at least once a week for that boost of hydration. You don't need to spend money either there are plenty of DIY tutorials online or better yet use pure coconut oil and leave if you can overnight.
Don't wash every day
As tempting as it is to wash your hair everyday try not to. There are many benefits to your scalps natural oils, they're hydrate and nourish the hair naturally. If you wash your hair everyday you strip the hair of these natural oils which can lead to dry and brittle hair.
