Have you ever felt as though no matter how many products you’ve tried, your hair constantly feels dry and limp?
Have you ever ran your hands through your hair to find an odd number of hair strands falling out? If so, you’ve probably experienced dry hair.
Dry hair is particularly common amongst women with naturally curly, frizzy or Afro hair.
Well, scientists note that every twist and bend in one’s hair creates a place of fragility.
This means that curly girls and guys have hair that is naturally more fragile and delicate than other hair types. As a result, curly hair textures are more prone to breaking than straight hair.
The question that many curly girls and guys ask is:
‘Can I cure dry hair?’ and if so,’how?’
Here are three simple yet effective tips for preventing and reducing dryness.
Avoid heat and excessive chemical processing.
If you’re planning on chemically treating your hair whether by dyeing it, relaxing, perming or any other method then we highly recommend visiting a professional and experienced hair stylist who knows how to care for chemically treated hair.
Don’t run from water!
Embrace that you need to keep your hair cleansed often (but not too often) and that applying water before applying any product is essential to keep your hair in the best condition.
Accept that you weren’t born with slick straight hair!
If your hair is naturally curly, coily, frizzy, kinky (or a glorious combination of all of these textures) then accept that your hair wasn’t designed to be super straight!
Adding heaps of heat everyday won’t make it more beautiful, in fact it will probably destroy your hair and leave you feeling miserable.
