Top 7 Tips To Treat And Prevent Dry Hair

Bad hair is not intentionally trying to ruin your day; it is trying to tell you something. Your hair is kind of smart, if you listen to it. It tells you what it needs. So what is your hair trying to tell you when it ends look like the bristles on a broom? It is telling you to stop doing whenever are causing it to dry out and find a conditioner that will help replace some of the natural oils that are being stripped out. Here are a few tips that can help you to minimize its damage.

1.Try Oil

People on low-fat diets might not be getting enough oils in their bodies – and if that’s so, then their scalps and hair might be deprived. But of course, you don’t want to add a lot of heart-hurting, fat-producing oils to your diet just to improve your hair. Supplement a low-fat diet with some heart-healthy olive oil per day. Try incorporating the oil into a salad dressing, or drizzle it over bread.

2.Avoid Excessive Blow-drying

Folks with dry hair should avoid excessive bow-drying. When your hair is wet, just let it dry naturally. That’s better for the overall health of your hair. If you must use a blow-dryer, use a spray-in conditioner while drying your hair to protect it from excess damage.

3.Condition Your Hair

After each washing of your hair, it is recommended to apply a conditioner specifically designed for dry hair. Conditioners replace or lock in the natural oils that often get stripped out. Conditioning your hair after each washing should help you to lubricate your once-dry hair.

4.Try Mild Shampoo

When you do wash your hair, use a gentle shampoo such as a baby shampoo. Using a mild shampoo is a good idea because it won’t strip away too many of your hair’s protective oils.

5.Oil It Up

For both dry hair and a dry scalp, good old-fashioned castor oil provides an effective solution. If you have a dry scalp, warm up some castor oil by putting a small amount into a pot and heating it on a very low setting until it is warm to the touch. Then massage it into your scalp. If the ends of your hair are dry, but not your scalp, it is recommended to apply the heated oil only to the ends of your hair. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes and then wash your hair with a shampoo.

6.Rinse Immediately

After swimming in the ocean or a pool, rinse your hair immediately to get rid of the salt or chlorine. People of all ages who swim often should be sure to wash the chlorine or salt out of their hair as soon as possible, because it can do some damage to your hair over time.

7.Wash Every Other Day

If you have problem with dry hair, your hair needs a day off between washings. Constant hair washing with a harsh shampoo strips the natural oils. By washing every other day, you are still getting your hair clean enough, and the alternating schedule helps save your hair from drying out.
