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.


Causes of Dry Hair

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.


Tips if you have dry hair


Choose the right shampoo and conditioner

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.


Protect your hair

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.


Brush gently

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.



Combat Dry Hair: Step-by-Step in the Shower

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.”


  1. Shampoo: Start by wetting your hair thoroughly. Apply a moisturizing shampoo, such as Shampoo for Moisture from Lernberger Stafsing, in your palm and gently massage it into your scalp and lengths. Focus on cleaning your scalp thoroughly while avoiding too much rubbing in the lengths, which can make your hair more dry and damaged. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
  2. Hair Mask: After shampooing, use a hair mask to provide extra moisture and nourishment to your hair. Take a generous amount of a deep-acting hair mask, like Hair Mask: Recond and Restore from Lernberger Stafsing, and apply it evenly in your hair. Focus especially on the lengths and avoid applying too close to the scalp. Let the hair mask work for a few minutes according to the product’s instructions and then rinse out thoroughly. Remember that the hair mask should always be applied before the conditioner.
  3. Conditioner: After rinsing out the hair mask, apply a moisturizing conditioner, such as Conditioner for Moisture from Lernberger Stafsing, in the lengths and hair tips. Avoid applying too much conditioner near the scalp to prevent the hair from becoming heavy or greasy. Let the conditioner work for a few minutes and then rinse your hair thoroughly.
  4. Leave-in Products: To provide extra moisture and protection to your hair, you can use leave-in products after you have showered. Apply a small amount of leave-in conditioner or hair oil, like our Leave-In Conditioner or Hair Elixir from Lernberger Stafsing, in damp hair. Distribute the product evenly by working through the hair with your fingers or a comb. Leave the product in your hair and style as you usually do.



Hair Care Routine for Nighttime

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:

  1. Night Serum: Apply a hair serum that works overnight, such as Night Serum from Lernberger Stafsing. These types of serums are often more concentrated and contain higher levels of active ingredients that help restore hair health. They work while you sleep to repair, hydrate, and protect the hair. Apply the serum on the lengths and tips of your hair, avoiding the scalp. You do not need to rinse out these products in the morning; they will have fully absorbed into your hair overnight.
  2. Silk Pillowcase: Consider switching to a silk pillowcase, if you don’t already use one. The smooth surface of silk can help reduce friction on your hair that can cause breakage and split ends. The natural properties of silk can also help to maintain the moisture level of your hair and skin.



Maintaining Your Hair Health

Maintaining your hair health doesn’t stop at your bathroom routine. There are several other factors that can contribute to the overall health and appearance of your hair. Here are some additional tips:

  1. Diet: A balanced diet is crucial for healthy hair. Include a variety of proteins, whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats in your diet. Consider taking supplements that contain essential vitamins and minerals such as Biotin, Zinc, and Vitamin E which are known to support hair health.
  2. Protect from Heat: Avoid excessive use of heat styling tools as they can dry out and damage your hair. If you must use heat styling tools, always use a heat protectant spray to minimize damage.
  3. Regular Trims: Regular trims help to get rid of split ends which prevent your hair from looking dry and damaged. Aim to get a trim every 6-8 weeks.

Some final advice from Fanny:

 “Regaining shine and moisture in dry hair requires the right treatments and products. By following these step-by-step instructions and using moisturizing products that suit your needs, you can give your hair the best possible care. Remember to be consistent and give your hair time to recover. With patience and proper care, you can regain healthy and shiny hair! Good luck!”
