Why does hair become dry?

Lack of natural hydration

It's a fact, just like a plant, our hair needs to be hydrated! Lack of water causes dry hair.

ANSES recommends drinking at least between 1.5 and 2 liters of water per day . Remembering to drink throughout the day before you even feel thirsty helps hydrate your body but also your hair! And remember, what happens inside reflects outside.🪞

Environmental factors

Exposed to wind, pollution and the sun, hair can quickly become fragile. Wind causes knots and breakage while UV rays dry out hair.

Do you live in urban areas where the air is often polluted? Fine particles, dust and exhaust gases attack the hair. The scalp suffocates and the hair becomes dull...

But rest assured, there are other solutions than living with a hood around your head all year round! 😁

Excessive use of heat

We often hear it said that exposure to extreme heat affects the shape of hair's keratin fibers. Certain bad habits can also have a harmful impact on their texture:

  1. excessive drying with a hairdryer;

  2. frequent use of straightening or curling irons;

  3. excessive friction when drying with a towel.

Unsuitable shampoos

Using hair products that are too aggressive also causes dry hair. Dyes, styling products or shampoos that are unsuitable for your hair can change its appearance. Choosing a shampoo according to your hair type is therefore essential.

Diet and general health

Finally, a diet poor in nutrients and vitamins can also cause a change in hair texture.

Nutritional deficits in vitamins and minerals therefore impact the scalp.

Now you know why your hair can become dry. Do not panic ! Hair repair is possible: with a new dry hair routine , you will quickly find radiant hair!

Dry hair: which hair routine to adopt?

Choose the right shampoo and conditioner

To adopt a new dry hair routine , choose a gentle shampoo and a suitable conditioner. Instead, opt for hair care products for dry hair and natural, chemical-free nourishing shampoos. Hair care products based on shea butter or aloe vera make all the difference.

Limit the use of heat

To regain healthy, shiny hair, avoid excessive heat. Opt for drying in the open air rather than with a hair dryer. Also limit the use of heated styling tools like straighteners which make hair brittle. Before straightening or curling your hair, remember to apply a heat protectant spray.

Avoid too frequent shampooing

Too frequent shampooing is aggressive for the hair and scalp. Washing your hair with a small amount of product two to three times a week is sufficient.

Moisturize from the inside

Good hair hydration requires a healthy diet for strong hair: a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals based on fruits, vegetables, proteins and healthy fats. Add to that 1.5 to 2 liters of water per day and you will find flamboyant hair!

Use nourishing hair oils

Natural oils help keep hair well hydrated. You will find nourishing hair oils based on olive, jojoba, coconut or sunflower oil in different forms:

  1. Hair conditioners and serums protect the scalp by preventing it from drying out and provide the hair with necessary hydration.

  2. Hair oil baths are perfect for hydrating and softening your hair.

  3. Sun protection for hair preserves its shine.

Avoid water that is too hot

To succeed in your dry hair routine , avoid using water that is too hot during your hair care. It could further dry out the hair. Therefore, use lukewarm water to moisten your hair. Rinsing with cold water helps close the hair scales and retain moisture.

Use a wide-toothed comb

Should we give ourselves a makeover with a gentle brushing of our hair? A wide-toothed comb helps detangle hair without damaging it. Moderate use of styling products helps prevent them from drying out.
