How to Recognize and Remedy Dry Hair

The cooler, drier days of autumn are here, and with it comes the struggle of dry hair for many. Without the right amount of moisture your hair can end up dull, frizzy, and prone to tangles. It’s essential to provide your hair with the proper conditioning to keep it smooth and healthy, but often regular conditioner doesn’t quite do the trick. You also want to avoid over conditioning if your hair isn’t dry, as that would result in locks that are weighed down, flat, and lifeless. Let’s take a look at how to recognize dry hair and how to remedy the problem to ensure a healthy-looking hairstyle this fall.

Dry Hair Becomes Fragile

When hair dries out it becomes weak and fragile. If you are noticing more hair shedding in your hairbrush than usual and have those pesky short little flyaways from broken hairs your hair is likely in need of a good deep conditioning treatment to replenish the moisture and strengthen your strands.

Lack Luster Locks

The glossy shine and bounce of healthy-looking hair is mostly a result of the hair being well moisturized. Moisture plumps up the hair shaft giving it more volume and bounce and a good conditioner seals the cuticle to give hair smoothness and shine.

Lacking Protein 

Protein provides the building blocks for healthy hair.  Without the proper nutrients from within your hair will be weak, brittle, and dull. By adding more healthy protein to your diet you will provide your hair strength from the inside out.

Know Your Hair Type

Grabbing just any conditioner labeled for dry or damaged hair will not remedy your hair care woes. You need to know your hair type and use a quality product formulated for your own unique hair type. If you use a moisturizing conditioner for coarse hair on hair that is fine you will end up with flat greasy-looking hair. And on the contrary, if you use conditioner for fine limp hair on hair that is thick and coarse you won’t likely be able to see much difference at all. Your stylist will be able to help you identify your hair type and recommend products to keep your hair well moisturized and healthy in the drier months ahead.
