Are you wondering why you’ve been growing your hair out for so long and it’s been going nowhere? Is it frizzy and out of control or do you feel like your scalp is the Sahara Desert? Does your hair brush have a ball of hair in it after you’re done brushing?
If you have any of these problems you may be suffering from dry hair. Let’s start by understanding why your hair is so dry.
- Seasons have a huge effect on your hair. Summer problems: A lot of overexposure to the sun, Swimming, and products that dry out your hair with alcohol. Winter problems: Intense dry air everywhere, cold dry air as well as indoor heat sucks moisture right out of your hair.
- Way to Common Smoothing Treatments. When treatments are done too frequently they will build up protein in your hair leaving it brittle.
- Hormone Changes. When your hormones are off, odd changes can happen to your hair. One of those changes is hair dryness among other things, so visit your doctor.
- Some Shampoos have WAX! Yes, I said wax that coats the hair and drys it out. It acts as a plastic wrap coating the hair and blocking oxygen.
- Get rid of Cheap Products and get high-performance products.
- Avoid High Heat. Never put high heat over your hair for a long period of time or any heat over 400 degrees. The HSI Professional dryer is a very good.
