We all know dry hair is a stage before hair becomes damaged, or when hair is dry due to other factors. Here are few tips to help restore your hair.
What’s Dry Hair?
Let’s understand what’s dry hair before we delve further. Dry hair is when your hair lacks shine and moisture. This happens when the outer layer of hair is damaged and results in dull and dry hair. Also, when hair doesn’t get adequate oil it results in dry hair. Other activities that result in dry hair include swimming (chlorine is pools), styling, heat treatments and sunbathing. Anyone can get dry hair and it can be dealt with easily.
Dry Hair Causes
Numerous causes including the ones listed above can cause hair dryness. As a result, hair becomes brittle and coarse. Hereditary reasons, lack of nutrition and even certain health conditions can be a cause. Even washing hair too often, or ignoring hair care can result in dry hair.

Tips to Deal with Dry Hair
If you wash your hair more than twice or thrice a week, STOP! Excessive washing is one of the main culprits for dry hair.
Do you oil your head regularly? If not, START NOW! Oiling your hair and scalp regularly can keep dryness at bay. If your hair is already dry, try Argan Oil to restore and rejuvenate your hair.
Have you considered Oil Massage? Massage your scalp with warm or normal oil an hour before hair wash. This nourishes, moisturizes and soothes your hair, giving you shiny tresses in no time. Depending on what’s available and your preference, choose the oil or a combination that works for you. Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Coconut Oil, Sesame Oil and even Mustard Oil works. I combine Coconut Oil, Castor Oil and Neem Oil for my Oil Massage.
Try conditioning and nourishing hair and scalp masks to restore your hair health. They’re one of the best ways to get shiny locks. Egg Masks, Avocado Masks, Mayonnaise Masks or even herbs like Fenugreek are used as masks. Choose what works for you best.
Hair Rinses are another way to condition and nurse your hair. ACV Rinse is often recommended to restore pH balance and hair health.
Avoid styling treatments including straightening, curling, etc. Don’t use hair dryer and keep damaging habits to a bare minimum.
If you head out in sun, use a wrap and swap your cotton pillow cases for silk ones to avoid losing out on moisture and oil to your pillowcases.
Don’t style your hair roughly. Gently detangle your hair and use a detangler, if needed. Use a wide-toothed comb to style your stresses and handle your hair with care.
When you follow these simple tips, and incorporate changes in your hair care routine, you can restore your hair to its former glory and shine. Consider using Argan Hair Care Kit to nourish and rejuvenate your hair.
