Caring for Dry Hair


I currently coming out the other side of having the most dry, unmanageable hair known to man. So I' thought it was about time I talked about some ways to look after such an unruly hair type. Dry hair can be caused by a variety of things - Straightening, Blow Drying, Teasing, Colouring and over processing can all make the hair look a little dehydrated and dull. It's fairly easy to tell if your hair is this type because it's very noticeable (and common!) hair type.

Conditoning: 
Conditioning the hair is the most obvious and important step when your hair is feeling a dry. You should smother the ends to the mid lengths of your hair with a good, nourishing conditioner. Avoid using boiling hot water on the hair as this can also damage it further. Using a deep conditioning mask once or twice a week is also recommended. I like to use the Philip Kingsley Elasticiser when my hair is dry. I pop it on with a shower cap and leave for anything from 30 minutes to overnight. The longer you leave it the more time time it has to penetrate the hair.

Styling:
When styling you probably want to use as little heat as possible. However with the modern lives we don't all have time to sit around waiting for our hair to dry. Mine can take upwards of 6 hours when left alone. However the downside of this it can leave to breakage when hair is dry. I'd recommend using heated styling tools on their lowest heat setting and always using a heat protectant. Also try using brushes which are designed to be gentle on the hair like the Tangle Teaser.

Out and About: 
Things like chlorine, salt water, UV sprays, hair dye and chemical treatments can all damage the hair further. So where possible to make sure you protect against these things. By either keeping the hair covered or trying out sprays and protectantss which you can use on your hair to protect it from the elements!

Lifestyle: 
It's important to remember that what goes into your body does impact the health of your skin, nails and hair. Remember to drink lots of water as this can also effect the dryness of your hair. You can get supplements to help with hair glossiness but I havent tried anything personally. Im always skeptical of things like that as I think the best way to get in vital vitamins and minerals that will help grow your hair!

  1. I have dry hair at the moment and I tend to try use a hair mask whenever I have the extra time. I find that the Kerestase masquintense works amazingly well at adding moisture to my hair. Definitley need to invest in a tangle teezer very soon :)

    Thanks for the tips, I hope you have a lovely day! ♥

  8. It can be really hard when you have dry hair to keep it healthy. I agree with all of these points, and I'd add that even when you want to let the hair grow, you should cut a few inches every two or three months - there's no point in having long hair if it's all dry and unhealthy!

  12. My hair is/was sooo dry. I recently decided to start growing my hair out, which means I must care for it more since it's so dry and prone to breakage. I picked up a conditioning mask by Acure Organics and it has saved my hair! I also quit using heat on my hair except for weekends if I'm going out, which has helped a lot. And you're so right about your diet- what you put in your body reflects through your hair, skin and nails! Great post.

  14. Once in a while my hair can have some serious dryness issues and then I know it's complaining about the conditions, so I just spoil it with a little mask or some extra conditioner :) I never use hot water or hot styling products on my hair, that's really a lot saved.

  20. Interesting post! I tend to get dry hair from the sun but other than that I never ever use heat on my hair. Maybe once or twice a year I curl my hair with a curling wand, but that's about it :) Even during winter I always let my hair air-dry instead of using a blow dryer.

    Your hair looks beautiful!

  34. Good tips here! My hair is so dry right now - the cut isn't right, so rather than avoiding heat by going for natural waves, I'm straightening it every other day! :( I need to get it cut, but in the mean time, I'll be trying hair masks like you suggest! (and best of all, I work from home so I can sit with it on my head all day!!)

  38. The Louis Vuitton handbagsis complemented by gorgeous steel hardware that is nicely stamped with the company’s logo and name. The choice for stainless steel is a very inspired one as silver match stunningly the overall design and color combo of these purses Balenciaga Handbags.On the front part of the bag there is the metal lettering logo. It says with silver stainless steel letters that are individually applied “Mulberry Replica Handbags” on one row and “MILANO” on the second row. The sides of the Rolex Replica Watches are embellished with “fake zippers” that close and open to reveal more or less of the central part of the purse which is the actual body of the Rolex watches. This luxury Breitling Watches is actually a bag inside another watches.The Prada handbagsactual is in this case the pink part and not the black out one.
