How to Fix Dry Hair

Many factors can lead to your hair drying out. Whether you’re washing it too often, aren’t using the right products, or have naturally dry hair, it can be frustrating when all you want is that healthy shine. In addition, dry hair can have a significant impact on your confidence and can get you down if you constantly try to hydrate your locks and struggle to see an improvement.

So, to help you get back the nourishment your hair needs, we’re providing our expertise to fix your dry hair. We’re delving into everything you need to give your locks hydration and shine, including choosing the right shampoo and conditioner and looking into how often you need to go for a trim. So, without further ado, let’s fix your dry hair!

How Do I Know if I Have Dry Hair?

There are a few signs to look out for that indicate that you have dry hair, whether that is just your natural hair type or other factors causing the lack of hydration. For example:

  • Split ends are visible. Seeing the splits in your hair is a good sign that your hair has dried out and needs some TLC.

  • It has a brittle texture. If you run your hands through your hair, notice breakage, and it feels rough, your hair would benefit from some hydration.

  • Your hair easily knots. Because of the rough texture of dry hair, it will knot and tangle easily.

  • Your scalp is itchy. An itchy scalp and dandruff mean your hair lacks moisture.

If this sounds a lot like your hair, there are several things that you can do to provide it with the hydration it needs to be restored back to life.

Hydrating Your Dry Hair

When it comes to hydrating your hair, there are several steps you should follow to ensure that you give yourself the best chance at becoming restored, healthy, and no longer dry. As experts in dry and damaged hair products, we’re here to explain which products are the best for this hair type and what other things you should be doing to give your hair what it needs to recover.

Trimming Your Hair Regularly

As mentioned, one side effect of dry hair is split ends, which are impossible to rectify and must be trimmed off. If you leave split ends to worsen, the split will increase, meaning by the time you come to have your hair cut, you will need a lot taken off the length to ensure it is healthy and won’t split further.

While bobs are super on-trend for autumn if you’ve spent years growing your hair long, having to cut inches off the ends in order to save it can be disappointing. Avoid this by taking regular trips to the salon and getting those pesky split ends gone!

Use Heat Protectants

Using your heated hair electricals safely is one of the best ways to prevent your hair from drying out. As well as choosing a brand that equips their tools with heat-protecting features, make sure to use a professional heat protection spray each time you dry, straighten, or curl your locks. For example, the Alterna Bond Repair Leave-In Heat Protection Spray.

Avoid Over-Washing

While you may want to try your brand-new shampoo and conditioner right away, you mustn’t over-wash your hair. Your hair is full of natural oils that prevent it from drying out, so although you may think that washing your hair with moisture-restoring products will fix it, it’s also vital that you don’t overdo it and strip your hair of its natural oil.

Generally speaking, you should wash your hair around three times per week, but this will differ from person to person depending on your lifestyle and hair type.

Implement Hair Food Vitamins into Your Routine

Finally, if you’re still struggling with dry hair, we recommend implementing hair food vitamins into your routine.
