Have you guys ever suffered with dry and brittle hair? Believe me, we all have and it's not fun. Dry and brittle hair usually lacks luster and often looks unhealthy. It's also prone to excessive breakage and flyway's, so it can be unruly at times. Fear not readers, we got you covered.
Here are 5 tips for you to have the silkiest, smoothest hair:
TIP #1 - Wash Your Hair Less Frequently
When you have dry hair, washing too often can strip the moisture from your hair, causing your hair to become even more dehydrated.
TIP#2- Rinse Your Hair With Cool Water
The heat can actually dry out your hair, leaving it even more brittle and dehydrated. Instead, use cool water to rinse the shampoo or conditioner from your hair. Not only does it seal the cuticle and lock the moisture in, but it leaves your hair looking shinier too.
TIP#3- Brush Your Hair With A Natural Bristled Brush
Use a brush with natural bristles, which are more gentle leaving your hair without any damage or breakage. A brush with boar or wooden bristles is the best bet for dry or damaged hair.
TIP 4#- Limit Heat Styling
Using heated styling tools, such as a curling iron or flat iron, can dry out your hair further. It’s best to limit your use of heat styling to once a week. Blow drying your hair can also cause some moisture loss in your hair, so air dry your locks whenever you can.
When you use a curling iron, flat iron, or blow dryer, use the lowest heat setting possible to achieve your desired results. Another great tip is always apply a heat protectant product. Heat protectant coats your hair with extra moisture so your hair doesn’t lose any of its natural density.
TIP #5- Deep Condition Your Hair Weekly
You should use an intensive deep conditioning treatment once a week. Apply the deep conditioner after washing your hair, and allow it to soak into your hair for 10 to 20 minutes before rinsing it off Choose a deep conditioner with moisturizing ingredients, such as glycerin, shea butter, olive oil, argan oil, and keratin or other proteins.
