When you were 15, you have been an Invincible Hair Hero. You could use the cheapest shampoo from a supermarket or an old burnt curling tong, and yet your hair would look gorgeous. Your body was producing a lot of natural oils that protected your scalp and moisturized the hair. However, with age your scalp started producing less sebum and your hair become dry and brittle. If there isn’t enough moisture, along with the dry hair, you may also get a flaky and itchy scalp.
A healthy scalp routine
1. Massage it to increase blood circulation.
2. Comb the hair every day with a high-quality brush.
3. Wash your hair the salon way.
It’s time to get rid of drugstore products that create unhealthy buildup and block the natural oils. Switch to a quality shampoo and conditioner that will allow your scalp to breathe.
Why your hair is dry?
The other reason for the dry hair is damaged protection layer. When the cuticle is broken, your hair won't keep all the applied and produced moisture. Here's why it may happen:
A hot dry air from central heating isn’t just a perfect environment for viruses, but also the reason for split hair cuticle. Such air absorbs all the healthy oils from your scalp, hair and skin. Get air humidifier to add the moisture or open the windows at least once a day.
Hair products that contain several types of alcohol can also take the moisture away, especially sprays and styling products. Ingredients that start with “prop” would definitely dry your hair. Keep in mind that some alcohols are safe, such as stearyl and cetyl alcohol.
