Suffering from split ends, tangles, broken strands and brittleness? You have dry, dehydrated and/or damaged hair.
But according to Women’s Health Mag, dry hair is not a hair type—it’s a condition that can be treated. Your first step: Find out what’s stripping strands of their natural oils. We asked experts in the field to nail down some culprits, as well as simple treatments to nix dry, damaged hair for good.
Summer includes overexposure to the sun, swimming, and products with alcohol, which can all dehydrate hair. And with winter comes extreme cold followed by overheated indoors, which can make hair parched and dry.
Too many smoothing treatments done close together can leave your locks super thirsty. These treatments work effectively to smooth out hair and make it luscious and dreamy, but if they are done too frequently, the buildup of protein on the hair causes it to become brittle.
Birth control pills, pregnancy, and menopause are all times of physiological shifts within the body that can have an adverse effect on the hair, including dryness and brittleness. We recommend seeing your doctor to discuss treatment options.
USING THE WRONG SHAMPOO
Not all shampoos are created equal. Try not to use your man’s drying shampoo when yours runs out. You would be better off rinsing your hair a few times with just water to remove some of the oil, rather than risk the stripping effects of a shampoo that is not right for you.
