May The Inward and Outward Woman Be As One

Dry Hair.... You better care ;)

Tuesday, October 29, 2013
Dry and Damaged hair can result from a lot of external factors

  • Harsh shampoo
  • Shampooing too often
  • Hair dye
  • Hair perms
  • Chlorine in swimming pools and hot tubs
  • Overuse of the blow dryer or curling iron
  • Too much exposure to sun and wind
  • High mineral content in local water supplies
  • Certain medications
  • Nutritional deficiency
  • Prolonged illness

It’s important to start taking care of breakage prone hair ASAP

1. Cut down on the numbers of time you wash your hair a week! Washing hair too much strips hair of its natural oils. Try Dry shampoo instead.  Here’s ONE of my favorite dry shampoos!  It is wonderful for ALL hair types. 

2.  Condition, Condition, Condition!  Every time you wash your hair use a good conditioner and let it sit for a minute or two! Add vinegar to your conditioner for shine and avoid any products with alcohol in them. 

3. Invest in a quality brush.  They really do make a difference. Boar brushes are best for dry hair. 

4.  Eat Foods HIGH in essential fatty acids. 

5.  When Blowdrying hair use a thermal protector first. 

6. Use a weekly oil or hair mask treatment. Neutrogena has an affordable one thats pretty good! Check out my review here 

7.  Blow Dry on low heat and ALWAYS use a leave in conditioner.
