So, you have dry hair! Are you sure there is something like naturally dry hair, which the hair care products claim to be a hair type? Well, the answer is a big NO. Dry hair is not a hair type – it is a condition that is very much treatable and reversible. All that you need to do is figure out what exactly is stripping your tresses of their natural oils and moisture, and then do the needful to nail down the culprits.
Here are some common causes of hair dryness and its treatment.
Here are some common causes of dry hair:
During winters not only the weather conditions are dry but you also don’t hesitate facing the sun. Besides that, overheated indoors also play a vital role in dehydrating your strands, resulting in parched, dry, frizzy hair.
Smoothing treatments are done to smooth out wavy, frizzy hair. But too many treatments, done close together can steal the existing moisture out of your shafts, leaving them super thirsty. Besides that, the protein buildup on the locks causes them to become brittle and prone to hair breakage.
Hormonal fluctuations during puberty as well as post-menopause can have an adverse effect on your hair, including dryness and brittleness. Oral contraceptives can also have a similar impact. If you believe your hair dryness is due to hormonal changes, see some trichologist and discuss the treatment options.
Not all hair care products have same formula and are thus not suitable for all hair types. Don’t forget to read the labels as you go to buy shampoos and conditioners. Never go for a drying shampoo during winters, even if you have oily hair. This can further worsen the condition.
Exposing your delicate locks to heated hair styling tools strips them of their natural oils and moisture, leaving behind dry and brittle hair. Whether it is a blow dryer, a flat iron or a curling rod, using it daily to style your hair is simply damaging your strands. Heat styling once in a while is okay, but even then keep the tool at the lowest possible heat setting.
Here are some simple tips to avoid and reverse hair dryness problem this winter.
Just like you start using heavier face creams during winters to keep your skin moisturized, go thicker on the conditioner as well to avoid dry and brittle hair problem. Buy some heavy, stay in conditioner this winter and keep your strands luxurious and silky throughout the season.
Certain shampoos contain sulfates because the chemical not only allows for more lather but also helps fade color in case someone has color-treated hairs. But they also remove natural moisture and therefore, should be avoided during winters.
Even if you are using a sulfate-free shampoo and heavy, stay in conditioner, deep conditioning your locks once a week will do wonders. Apply a conditioning mask to your hair every weekend, let it get absorbed for 30 to 45 minutes and then wash off. You will notice your hair has become silkier and smoother after the treatment. There are numerous over the counter conditioning masks available in the market but better you use some natural mask prepared at home.
Regularly massage your hair using any natural oil and this will help keep your hair thick, silky, smooth and fast growing. Coconut oil and castor oil are two time-tested natural oils that people have been using since ancient times for luscious hair. Massage your scalp using any of these oils, let sit for half an hour and then shampoo as usual.
Follow the tips stated above and enjoy the luscious, silky and smooth hair of a shampoo model. For an expert advice, feel free to schedule a FREE CONSULTATION by filling the form below.

"I was really pleased with my experience at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery. I had to cancel the first date I booked, because of my daughter, but when I called them the next day, they fit us in that afternoon, which was really good. My mum and I went to a free consultation for Laser Assisted Liposuction, and it went very well. We were really impressed with the doctor, Dr. Juan Tadeo Krogulec - he was lovely. He spent as long as we needed with us, and didn't rush us. He was really thorough and not only did he answer all of our questions, he answered others we hadn't even thought of asking! I think that when the time comes for treatment we'll probably be going with them.".
I am very satisfied with my results. I strongly recommend this clinic for every one who wants great result and its very cheap to :). Dr. Cagtay and his team are very professional and do take care of their patients.".
