Are you reeling under a dry hair problem? While dry hair is obviously not a choice but will become one if you don’t act right. It’s high time you should start feeding your hair with essential nutrients and proper care. 

Let’s decode everything about dry hair and home remedies to tackle them effectively.

What causes dry hair?

PZDUh034R02sXkoYuTeP25PNu8xmrECJHzrKG0aCAB6n7l

As dry hair is inactive in absorbing or retaining moisture, it leaves your hair fragile, brittle and looks lacklustre.  For some, it may be genetic but for many, it is a lifestyle issue. 

This unhealthy-looking hair can be caused by various factors including:

  • Nutritional deficiencies, 
  • Excessive sun exposure, 
  • Contact with chlorinated water, 
  • Excessive hair wash, 
  • Excessive use of styling products and heating tools 
  • Use of harsh and inappropriate hair products.

Should I trim?

Most of them opt for a fresh cut to reset their too dry hair for ease of styling and managing. You can bid adieu to unhealthy hair and welcome fresh hair growth by trimming the hair frequently thus preventing split ends from showing. But remember the new hair is still in your hands, if you don’t care properly no new haircut can save you.

  • Do not wash your hair daily. As daily washing strips your hair of natural oil (sebum).
  • Use a shampoo specifically for dry hair or even try baby shampoo. 
  • Use cold or tepid water instead, of hot water when washing hair. 
  • The cold water helps to seal the cuticles and reduces moisture loss.
  • Try wrapping your hair with a cloth or towel after you wash it instead of letting it air dry.
  • If you sleep with your hair wet, use a silk pillowcase.
  • Using beer as a hair conditioner is a recommended method to compact dry hair.

Proper diet

  • Your food has a say in your hair health too. Eating healthy is one of the best home remedies you can try
  • Add omega-3-rich food and antioxidants to your diet.
  • Increase the intake of marine protein in your diet to make your hair look healthier and shinier.

  • Irreversible damage can be caused by hair dye and heated styling tools, such as a blow dryer, curling iron, and flat iron. Cut down it as much as possible.
  • Let your hair dry naturally.
  • Use mild shampoos, such as herbal or sulfate-free shampoos.
  • Use moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, such as those with softening oils that can include sweet almond, Argan, sunflower, and soybean.
  • If you’re going to blow dry your hair, keep the dryer at least 6 inches away from your hair shaft for best results.

Got more?

  • Avoid excessive sun exposure. Wear hats and scarves to protect the hair from the sun.
  • Avoid excessive contact with chlorinated water in swimming pools.{Rinse hair with 1/4 cup of apple cider mixed with 3/4 cup of water before going to the beach or after a swim.}
  • Wear loose hairstyles instead of tight ponytails.
  • Do not sleep with accessories in the hair.
