Looking for tips on how to style hair? Look no further, these tips from Matrix, might just help you out.
1. When you shampoo, use a gentle moisturizing shampoo on your dry hair.
These shampoos, specially designed for dry hair, usually contains lots of nutrients such as oils, essential fatty acids and ceramides. Secondly, don’t wash your hair too often since shampooing too frequently can damage your hair by drying it out, which can lead to breakage and dullness.
2. When you shampoo, use your fingertips to massage the shampoo into your hair.
Work from roots to ends — taking care not to pile your hair up on top of your head; this can lead to tangles, dryness and frizz.
3. Use a mask for dry hair.
To add moisture, once a week or so before shampooing, apply a hydrating mask on slightly damp hair, wrap your hair in a warm towel and leave it on for about 20 minutes. Wash as normal.
4. Use a conditioner for dry hair.
After shampooing, use a hydrating conditioner and massage it in with your fingertips before rinsing it out. To close the cuticle and enhance shine, try rinsing your hair with cold water. Avoid overly hot water and hard water, which both dry out your hair even more.
5. Embrace a dry hair-friendly diet.
Don’t forget that what we eat impacts our entire body, including hair. To nourish dry locks from the inside out, eat healthy foods such as plenty of fresh fruit and green veggies, lean meats and dairy, and avoid saturated fat. When snacking, nourish your dry tresses by munching on nuts. When your diet isn’t perfect (that would be the case for most of us), consider nutritional supplements.
6. Towel dry first!
After you get out of the shower, towel dry your hair thoroughly to get rid of as much excess water as possible, but don’t be overly vigorous, as this can be damaging to dry hair.
7. Apply a thermal protection product prior to blow drying or using heat tools.
This will create a barrier between your hair and the heat, preventing the dryer from sucking out too much moisture.
8. Try not to blow dry your dry hair too frequently.
When you do, dry your hair gently, with your hairdryer approximately six inches from your head. Always use a blow dryer with ionic technology, as these are less drying to hair.
9. Time your blow dry wisely.
When you blow-dry your hair, don’t wait more than 20 minutes after you get out of the shower to start. Begin blow-drying before your hair is more than 30 percent dry to get maximum volume and prevent stubborn cowlicks.
10. Position the dryer carefully
Don’t blow dry close to your roots, and never blast the same section of hair for more than 15 seconds.
11. When blow-drying, dry your hair 90% with a vent brush or a paddle brush.
This will speed up drying time, which means less exposure to drying heat. Finish with a round brush to smooth your hair.
12. Don’t over-dry your hair.
The last few minutes of blow-drying are when your hair is most vulnerable to damage.
