Dry hair can be a real challenge. It can feel rough, brittle, and lifeless. But don’t worry! In this article, we will take a closer look at the most common causes of dry hair, effective treatments, and tips to regain shine and moisture in your hair. We have collected tips and advice from Fanny Nygren, a product specialist in hair, skin, and styling at Lernberger Stafsing, to provide you with valuable insights.
There are several factors that can lead to dry hair. One of the most common is excessive use of heat styling tools such as curling irons and flat irons. Heat can dry out the hair, making it brittle and dull. Chemical treatments like perms, coloring, and bleaching can also contribute to dry hair.
Other causes can be environmental factors like overexposure to the sun, wind, or cold weather. These factors can affect the hair’s natural moisture balance, making it dry and damaged. Additionally, improper hair care, including using the wrong products and harsh hair washing methods, can also contribute to dryness.
Having a good shampoo and conditioner is the foundation for healthy, attractive hair. For best results, it’s important to identify what your hair needs and choose the right shampoo and conditioner accordingly.
Our shampoos gently clean the hair and scalp without removing the hair’s natural oils. Our conditioners make the hair easy to detangle, close the hair shaft, and protect the hair against external influences. They strengthen and moisturize your hair and scalp.
To protect your hair from damage and dryness, it’s important to take precautionary measures in everyday life. Avoid excessive use of heat styling tools and always use a heat protection product before using them. To protect your hair from the sun’s harmful rays, you can use a hat or SPF suitable for hair.
Brushing and combing your hair properly can help reduce dryness and damage. Use a wide-toothed comb or a brush with soft bristles to gently detangle your hair from top to root. Avoid brushing your hair when it’s wet, as it’s more likely to break off.
Now that we have identified the causes of dry hair, let’s look at effective treatments that can help to hydrate and restore the health of your hair.
Tips from Fanny before you step in the shower:
“A common mistake is to apply the conditioner before the hair mask. It’s important that the hair mask follows directly after shampooing as that is when the hair is most porous and receptive to all the effective ingredients that the mask offers. If you apply the conditioner before the mask, the hair closes up again and then you do not get the same effect of the mask.”
Before going to bed, it’s a good idea to apply a few products that will work overnight to further moisturize and protect your hair. Here is what you can do:
