Ever wondered how despite all the hair oils you’ve used, hair serums you’ve applied, your hair continues to be lifeless? Like as if your hair is parched, begging to be hydrated. So, you would typically oil it again and wash it through, only to find it once more frizzy, coarse, and limp. Yes? Yes!
Dry hair is very common, especially in winters, cold climates, and dry heat climates, where the atmosphere contains barely any moisture. And in regular climates, if dry hair continues to persist then you’ve been caring for your hair wrong.
Your hair quality; dry or oily is dependent on the type of scalp you possess. Our scalp has sebaceous glands that naturally produce Sebum moisture to nourish the hair. Hair by itself does not have any moisture, but the cuticle layer on your hair retains the moisture and protects hair. So, if your scalp is not producing enough natural oil to nourish your hair, and your scalp itself is dry, which makes your hair also dry.
Dry hair is typically characterised by an itchy scalp; with flaky snow like dandruff. Typically, dry hair is unruly, frizzy, and knotty, that it breaks easily while combing. External factors like rough dry climate, overexposure to the sun, excessive use of heat-based styling tools, chemical-based products, chemical treatments to hair are major factors causing dry hair too.
No one product can change your hair from dry to lustrous. It takes a change in lifestyle habits and a good hair care routine. At BellaEstas, our hair experts have been studying various ingredients that hair love, and here are few tips on transforming dry hair to healthy hair.
- Deep conditioning for hair!
Since hair needs moisture, giving your hair a natural hair oil massage can do wonders for your hair. Remember moisture is your friend! Studies have shown tocotrienol fermented hair oil penetrates 40% deeper faster into the hair bulb. Use a hair oil enriched with tocotrienol, fermented oils and virgin coconut oil like Verginico 8-in-1 hair growth oil.
Massage the scalp gently with fingertips to improve the circulation and absorption of the oil into your scalp. This will not only stimulate the roots but being a light hair oil, will absorb into the scalp and hair faster. Leave this deep oil conditioning in your hair overnight and wash it the next morning.
- Use Natural products, Say NO to chemicals!
All hair colouring products, hair treatment products, and several hair conditioners come laden with chemicals, which are detrimental in the long run. As you age, your scalp’s ability to provide moisture to your hair reduces, natural products ensure a gentle repair on the scalp and nourishment to the hair.
Look for ingredients like aloe vera, virgin coconut oil, argan oil, tocotrienol, almond oil, and many other hair-friendly natural ingredients in your hair products.
- Wash hair with a mild shampoo!
Any kind of excessive hair wash on dry hair will cause even drier hair. Most shampoos on the market today are strong with SLS and parabens, creating a lot of suds and as a result, stripping your hair of all its natural oil. Always pick a mild, sulfate-free, paraben-free, and silicone-free shampoo that is gentle on your hair and packed with natural ingredients.
Verginico anti-hair fall shampoo is rich with natural active ingredients such as Aloe Vera, a natural moisturizer, PROVITAMIN B5 that locks in moisture in the hair, and an advanced formula in hair technology, PROCAPIL, a powerful DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) blocker.
As much as you like squeaky clean hair, dry scalp and hair should not be washed more than twice a week. And always wash hair in room temperature or lukewarm water. Using hot water to wash hair just dries it out further! Let your hair come into a natural cycle of creating enough moisture until then keep the washing at twice a week.
- Eat Right!
Since all moisture comes from the scalp, healing dry hair is all about strengthening the hair roots. And the easiest way to nourish your roots is to eat healthily. Healthy fats like Omega-6 and Omega -3, vitamins B, C and E, biotin, and protein is key to improving dry hair. Not all foods can provide you the daily dietary requirement of each of these essential nutrients. Taking a nutritional hair supplement not only improves hair, skin, and nails; but also show marked effects on general health.
The Verginico Dry Hair Kit is a specially formulated hair care combo regime that comes with biotin enriched nutritional hair tablets that significantly strengthens hair follicles and nourishes the body from within.
- Improve Hair Habits!
Stop blow drying your hair each time you wash hair. Let hair air-dry and then style it. Never brush or comb wet hair. Hair is the most vulnerable when wet and breaks easily when wet. Reduce hair treatments and heat treatments like hair straightening, curling, colouring. Hair also needs a break from these treatments to restore its natural shine.A good hair care routine can do wonders to repair dry scalp and hair. Start with nourishing your body from within and then moisturising with natural products.
