Unfortunately, some of us are born with hair that is dull, dry, and frizzy by nature. Dealing with dryness is inevitable when your hair is constantly battered by heat styling tools, chemical treatments, and pollution.
Check out these tips to condition your brittle and dried out locks, leaving you with gorgeous, healthy locks!
One of the most effective remedies for dry hair is using an ultra-hydrating shampoo and conditioner. Typical shampoo with sulfates can strip off natural oils, which takes away its natural defense against the cold weather. Switching to a hydrating duo like Coconut Shampoo can keep your mane healthier by retaining moisture in your scalp and tresses to fight itching and dryness. Coconut Milk nourishes the roots and moisturizes the strands to add gloss and smoothness to your hair. Use WOW Skin Science Coconut Milk Conditioner which is rich in essential nutrients such as Lauric Acid, Vitamin E, Phosphorus, Iron, Magnesium and Copper, on regular basis to ensure healthy, glossy mane and avoid dryness.
A diet lacking in essential fatty acids like omega-3 (found in fish like salmon and mackerel, flaxseeds and walnuts) will show in your hair-strands health. Other rich sources of healthy fats include avocados, salmon, and olive oil. Since your hair is composed predominantly of protein, foods like beans, eggs, cottage cheese, shrimp, oysters, almonds and walnuts encourage healthy growth. Including a large variety of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet will meet your nutrient needs, ultimately benefiting hair, skin and overall wellness.
Bananas are high in potassium and have high moisture content to nourish dry hair. To take advantage of these benefits, mash one banana and thoroughly spread it on the hair, from roots to ends. Leave it on for 1 hour and rinse with lukewarm water to reveal glossy, hydrated mane!
You may think of tea just as a sore throat remedy, but it can give dry hair a natural shine. Use a quart of cooled, brewed tea as a final rinse after your WOW Skin Science Coconut Milk Shampoo. Tea can enhance hair color, so make sure to use a tea that works with your color. Blondes should use chamomile tea; black tea may darken their tresses. Brunettes should use black tea to enhance shine and enrich color.
The hot water that you use to rinse your body in the shower might also be scalding your hair. Cold water closes the hair cuticle to promote smoothness and shine. After you shampoo and condition with Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner in the shower, rinse your hair under cold water for a minute or two to revitalize strands and refresh your scalp.
If your hair is brittle and difficult to style after you wash it, it could be losing too much moisture during the drying process. Try wrapping with a 100% cotton t-shirt or towel after you wash it instead of letting it air dry.
If you sleep with your hair wet, use a silk pillowcase to keep your moisture from getting absorbed into your pillows.
WOW Skin Science Coconut Oil is a wonderful elixir for damaged hair. Thoroughly coat damp hair with the oil. Put on a shower cap or wrap your hair up in a cotton towel for effective deep conditioning. If coconut oil is not your preference, botanical oils like WOW Skin Science Sweet almond oil, WOW Skin Science Olive oil or WOW Skin Science Jojoba oil, are all great alternatives. Rinse out the oil by following up with WOW Skin Science Coconut Milk shampoo to gently cleanse and hydrate.
