Hair that is often exposed to the sun or often dyed can become dry and damaged. Dry and damaged hair will make hair look grassy and not shiny. Of course it will make us less confident. To deal with this, this article will give you tips for caring for your hair to be healthy and shiny. So keep scrolling.
Use Moisturizing and Thickening Shampoos
If your hair is really struggling, it may have something to do with the type of shampoo you are using. Avoid shampoos with too many chemicals and instead opt for moisturizing and thickening ones. When you are picking a shampoo, look out for amino acids in the ingredients list as these are a form of protein that your hair requires to be happy and healthy. If your hair is feeling dry and lifeless, changing your shampoo is a great place to start.
Never Skip Conditioner
Conditioner not only locks moisture into your hair to make it softer, but it can help prevent breakage and damage to your hair. Plus, if you buy a decent conditioner, it will probably protect your hair from heat damage, which is something you definitely want to avoid if your hair is dry.
Use Hair Masks
Hair masks are a great fix for dry hair. Whether your hair is just in need of a bit of life or it needs a full emergency repair, hair masks are always a great option. You can make them yourself with ingredients that you probably have lying around in your kitchen.
Don’t Too Often Wash Your Hair
washing your hair too often is extremely bad for your hair. However, not only is the oil that your scalp produces actually good for keeping your hair healthy but constantly stripping your hair of these oils by washing too often can really dry your hair out and make it much more brittle and prone to breakage.
Use Some Coconut Oil
If a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner and weekly hair masks aren’t enough for your hair, try using some coconut oil. You can apply this to your hair before you style it, and you can apply more after. These oils are great for both protecting your hair and for helping it to heal. However, just make sure you don’t over-do it with the oils, or you’ll be looking very greasy.
