The science of dry hair:
The first reason might be the texture of your hair. Certain hair textures, such as curly hair are more likely to have lifted hair cuticles. So, how does this cause dry hair? The cuticle is the protective layer of the hair, when lifted, it allows moisture to escape the hair strand, causing dryness. Lifted hair cuticles can also lead to dullness of hair colour, and increased frizz.
Another reason for dry hair might be that your scalp doesn’t produce enough natural oils to keep your hair and scalp moisturized. This can be a result of aging or hereditary conditions.
3 tips to care for dry hair:
Ready to restore health and nutrition to your mane? Here are three tips to get your strands back on track:
DRY HAIR TIP #1: SWITCH TO A NOURISHING HAIR CARE SYSTEM
When it comes to taking care of dry hair, nourishing your hair should be your number one priority. One of the easiest ways to get the job done is to enlist the help of a nourishing shampoo and conditioner system that can provide instant hydration. L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil is infused with six precious oils, including argan and coconut, to add nourishment to dry hair without any weigh down.
To use, apply the shampoo to wet hair and massage gently into a thick lather. Focus your shampooing mainly on your scalp and roots, since that’s the area that needs the most cleansing. Rinse out, then follow with the conditioner. When conditioning, take the opposite approach and focus the product mainly on the mid-lengths and ends of your hair.
DRY HAIR TIP #2: MAKE HAIR MASKS PART OF YOUR WEEKLY HAIR CARE ROUTINE
When it comes to hair masks, you don’t have to wait for a special occasion or the day when your hair is at its driest to break one out. In fact, to keep your hair looking healthy and prevent it from becoming dry and brittle, you should try to use a hair mask as a dry hair treatment once or twice per week in place of your regular conditioner.
L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Mask is a luxurious treatment with a smooth, creamy texture and a rich fragrance. Use it once or twice a week to give your hair an extra boost of hydration.
DRY HAIR TIP #3: USE A NOURISHING LEAVE-IN PRODUCT
If you have dry strands, you’ll want to use a hair styling cream or oil that will work to nourish your hair while also taming frizz. The key here is to find something that will add moisture without greasiness or weigh down. The L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Penetrating Oil is the world’s #1 treatment for a reason: It is infused with six precious oils and instantly transforms hair, leaving it soft and shiny without any greasiness. Use it on damp hair for extra hydration or on dry hair to get rid of frizziness.
