Rather than the glossy and advert-worthy hair, your hair is left dry and dull and it feels like there is nothing you can do about it. But there is! Our experts have shared their best tips and tricks for tackling dry and dull hair just for you:
– Use a hair oil.
The easiest and quickest way to get gorgeously glossy hair is with a hair oil. Simply apply to the bottom 3/4’s of your hair and concentrate on the dry ends.
– Squeeze wet hair instead of rubbing.
When your hair is wet it’s at its most vulnerable to damage, so instead of rubbing your hair with a towel to dry use the towel to squeeze out excess water before styling.
– Protect your hair on holiday.
Hair can easily lose moisture and shine when exposed to too much heat, instead wear a hat when the sun’s heat is at its peak and lightly run sun cream through your hair to protect your scalp too.
– Opt for a gentle hair brush.
Harsh brushes can cause serious damage to your hair so our experts recommend a boar bristle brush, as these brushes use natural materials to mimic the texture of your hair.
– Avoid too much heat on your hair.
Curlers, straighteners and hairdryers dehydrates hair over time and takes out essential moisture, try lessening the frequency of using heat appliances on your hair and always use a protect9ion spray beforehand.
– Eat well and healthily.
It’s true that what you put in is what you get out! Eat and drink foods rich in vitamins, minerals and fatty acids for healthy and glossy hair.
– Treat your hair to a mask.
The perfect way to target dry and dull hair is with a mask a few times a week. Apply a generous amount all over your hair then wrap your hair up with a towel to deeply condition your hair.
– Avoid washing more than 3 times a week.
Your hair produces natural oils which keeps it healthy and shine, so overwashing and using products which strip your hair of those essential oils cause dry and dullness.
