Dry Hair Treatment

Dry hair killing the romance? Here is some TLC for your mane… 

Picture this. It’s a romantic evening; you’re cuddled up with your heartthrob, your head resting on his shoulder. His hand lovingly reaches out to caress your open hair, and, just as you’re transported to a romantic trance charioted by your prince charming, you feel an uncomfortable tug bringing you back to reality. What? His fingers are stuck in the knots of your dry hair!! Parched strands playing spoilers to your Mills & Boons romance? We understand the tragedy.  

Care for Hair

  • Oil your mane: It may sound like an ordeal but truth be told oiling is a miracle cure for both your hair and scalp. Try the good old coconut oil for a relaxing champi. It’ll replace the natural oils stripped by the harsh summer, improve circulation and bring life to your parched locks. The best part, you don’t even need to keep an oily head for too long: one or two hours is enough to do the trick.
  • Wash it right: A common mistake people make is shampooing their hair too often. Limit your washes. Also, try not to use very hot water to wash your hair. It’ll just steal the moisture from your locks. Use lukewarm water instead.
  • Don’t forget to condition: A conditioner is to hair what a moisturiser is to the skin. Rich conditioning can be your shield. Condition your hair every time you wash them and watch it strengthen and increase the elasticity in your hair. If you are opting for ready-made conditioner make sure it suits your hair and is right for your hair type. 
  • Stay away from dryers: Give those dryers a break and we promise your hair will thank you for it. Also avoid vigorous towel drying because that actually damages the hair shaft and roughs up the outer layer of the hair. Be gentle to your manes post a wash but be sure to thoroughly dry them before venturing outside. 
  • Use the right type of products: The type of products you use will make a big difference in the overall health of your hair especially as the season changes. The product that works well on dry winter locks will not work on summer hair. Consult your stylist which type of product is best for your hair type and invest in them.
  • Take cover: Protect your hair like you protect your body. Wear a scarf, hat or cap to save your precious locks from the sun, but make sure it’s not so tight it interferes with the circulation in your scalp. Opt for satin scarves or caps with cotton or satin lining.
  • Regular Trims: Many of us are guilty of poofy hair caused by neglected split ends. Trimming your hair regularly is a must. Make sure to trim every 4 to 6 weeks so the damage from the split ends doesn’t travel up to the roots.
  • Water works: If your problem is quite severe, a good idea would be to invest in a humidifier. It helps by adding moisture to the air, which cuts down on static. Also drinking a lot of water will keep you hydrated on the inside. 
  • Supplements: Eat foods that are rich in vitamin B such as peas, beans, carrots, nuts and eggs. Another vitamin which is essential for healthy hair is biotin or vitamin H which is present in brown rice, soya-beans and walnuts.
