How To Care of Your Dry Hair!!!

DRY HAIR? - SUFFER NO MORE!

Ok so I get tons of emails asking me ...How do I take care of my hair? that I decided to dedicate a post on how "I take Care of my Dry Hair" YES, my hair is dry and thin so is far from perfect....trust me.



Some of you will have naturally dry or brittle hair whilst others can perhaps only blame themselves – sorry but, as we often tease and play with the hair to create stylish and beautiful looks we forget the damage that we can cause from over-styling.
I am not going to lecture you about over-styling – okay, maybe a little but I will be doing it for your own benefit!
Our hair can’t exactly speak out when it feels like it is being abused – but take note, when the hair becomes dry, brittle and damaged it is time to do something about it before it is too late.
Putting continuous pressure on the hair can even lead to thinning and hair loss so give it the treatment it deserves and it will serve you well for longer.

One of the evils of drying out hair is heat. Simply put, heat makes moisture evaporate and heat whether from over-exposure to the sun, your straightening or curling irons, can and will strip the hair of it’s natural oils. 
So you can really help your hair’s condition by laying off your heating tools. If you can, let the hair dry naturally more often. I try not to blow dry everyday do anything special to my hair on the weekends and only use a hairdryer if you are preparing for an evening out or special event.

Take care of your hair. You must strip your hair to remove all product build up and also give it extra care to have flawless and shiny hair. See my post on what I do to achieve this (Want Shiny and Healthy Hair) TRUST ME it works...I do this every month.

If you have dry hair there is no need to wash it everyday. Shampooing too often can also strip the hair of its natural oils so 2 or 3 times a week is more than adequate.

Take a look at the hair products you are using - do they contain ingredients that can care for dry hair? Browse the shelves of your local beauty store and see what is available specifically created for dry hair types. My favorite shampoo and conditioner that works for me is TRESeme Color Protection.

Healthy hair doesn't just come from the outside but also from within. I take a shot every morning of Fish Oil...YES...Carlson Fish Oil (lemon) with a hint of lemon taste so it's not too fishy. Click on the link if interested on buying it because is way cheaper than getting it at your local Organic Grocery Store.

Coloring can also ruin your hair - See my post here on what to do before coloring your hair Tricks for Gorgeous D.I.Y. Haircolor.

Now I have shared all my hair secrets with you guys and hope you have taken some good advice out of this post and I wish you luck in getting your hair back to full health.

Kisses and Always 

P!NK POSITIVE & P!NK BEAUTIFUL!!!

  12. Thanks for posting this :D Your hair looks amazing .
    There's not sooo much I could do for my hair - if wanted NOT to ruin it with heat and hair dyes- I'd have to become a blonde again and let it stay quite curly ..But my hair is in a surprisingly good condition considering that I have to straighten it almost everyday .. And dye about every two months..

  49. can't stress enough the laying off of heat styling and eating/ excercise right for healthy hair. My hair changed once I starting eating healthy - and I've just ordered my first set of organic hair care product - I'm keen to see how they work!

  53. I've got naturally dry hair and as I've been in hairdressing for a few years, I changed my colours all the time, bleached my hair, straighten it, curl it ... Imagine How it looked like after a while !
    Then I had it all short and now it's finally getting quiet long =) I only dye it every other month (too lazy to do it more often as I do it myself =/) and I wash it once a week. Except if I used hairsprey for some reason !

    Have a good sunday =)

  62. that's why i stopped using flat iron or blower! only for special occasions.. letting hair air dry is a way to keep it healthy! and you're right, if you can't live without extra-styling it, well moisture it well :)
