Improve Your Dry Hair With These Natural Tips
What’s the worst part about having dry hair? Some people say it’s the dull luster. Others say it’s the incessant breaking, split ends, and straw-like texture. The traditional fix is to use conditioner, but even this might not solve all of your dry-hair woes. Natural cures can succeed where chemicals fail or at least supplement them for great results. Try these natural dry hair hair-care tips to improve your texture and prevent breakage. Learn how to take care of dry hair and feel fabulous.
Comb thoroughly from root to tip
Your scalp produces natural oils that are supposed to moisturize the entire strand, so why not help along this natural biological process? Gently comb or brush your hair from root to tip to spread naturally occurring oils.
Trim split ends diligently
If you have dry hair, you’re more prone to split ends. The critical danger with split ends is that once a strand splits at the tip, it can split all the way up to the root, or cause weak spots further up the strand. Trim hair regularly to keep split ends in check. This will improve your hair texture significantly.
Apply olive oil
Olive oil works as a heavy-duty moisturizer for dry skin and lips, and it also works on hair. Comb a few drops of oil into your hair after you shower to help lock in moisture.
Is olive oil not your thing? Coconut Oil?
Try coconut oil instead. Olive oil is delicious, but you may be hesitant to put something so pungent in your hair. Coconut oil is a terrific (and great smelling!) alternative for a natural “leave-in conditioner”.
Use an apple cider vinegar rinse
This is a good trick if you live in a place with hard water. Hard water can cause calcium carbonate buildup in your hair, exacerbating dryness and creating a crusty texture. Clarify your hair the natural way by diluting four tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in one cup of water. Work the solution into your hair. Rinse thoroughly. This will help restore hair to a glossy texture.
The longer you wait to heal dry hair, the more damage will be done. Damaged hair can take months to grow out. Use these techniques on their own, or supplement your current hair care regime to revitalize your hair.
