Dry Hair? Try These Tips!

Managing dry hair can be tough. Weather, water quality, diet, and season all affect us. Our hair needs hydration just as we do, so we’ve listed some do’s and don’ts when it comes to handling our dry hair:

Do:Dry hair 1

  • When possible, let your hair rest from styling tools to give it a chance to recover
  • Protect your hair before swimming with a good coating of conditioner or a swim cap
  • Treat your hair to a deep conditioning mask or hot oil treatment weekly
  • Both Argan and Coconut oil are hydrating and nourishing and can be applied when your hair is wet
  • Always use a wide tooth comb on wet hair to avoid breakage
  • Manage your split ends with regular trims
  • A healthy diet can also lead to healthy hair and nails, so eat well and drink a lot of water
  • Use moisturizing conditioner, such as Keranique, after shampooing
  • After towel drying, run a leave-in conditioner through your hair

Don’t:

  • Don’t over wash your hair because you’ll strip the natural oils it needs for hydration
  • Don’t rinse your hair in hot water; it’s bad for your scalp and follicles
  • Be careful of heat!
  • Overexposure to the sun can damage your hair, so consider wearing a scarf or hat
  • Don’t overuse hair dyes because they will strip your hair and turn it brittle
  • Stay clear of chemical straighteners
  • Stay away from metal or cheap brushes

How Hard Water Affects Your Hair

Have you heard of hard water? It has a higher content of certain minerals, like calcium and magnesium. This excess of minerals leaves a residue even after the water is gone. When our hair gets coated in these minerals, it makes it harder to rinse the soap out, so our hair ends up feeling brittle and hard. Gee, thanks, hard water.Hard water

Hard water is a problem, but guess what? Problems have solutions, so here are a couple that you can try:

  1. Try adding one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to 3 cups of water and message in after shampooing. It helps remove build-up, increase volume, and add shine.
  2. Use healthy hair products like Keranique once or twice weekly to help minimize build-up.
  3. Water softeners treat the hard water issues throughout your whole house.
  4. Shower filters run about $40 and up with good results, and they’re a great solution if you are renting or don’t have much to spend.
  5. Do your final rinse with bottled water. It can get expensive, but it’s quick and easy.

The History of the Snuggie with World News Now
