How To Fix Dry Hair: 6 Best and Easy Tips
19 March 2018
The hair care industry has come a long way over the years. Hair woes that once seemed impossible to tackle can now be solved with quick and easy fixes. Dry hair used to be a hair concern that stumped stylists and beauty gurus alike, but now we know everything there is to know about how to fix dry hair.
If you’re dealing with parched locks and nothing you do seems to work, we’ve got you covered. We’ve rounded up six of the best and easiest tricks to fix dry hair once and for all.
Swap your regular shampoo for a hydrating one.
While shampoo is formulated to clean your scalp and strands of any buildup, it can feel drying (which is why conditioner should always be your next step). If your strands feel dry after you shampoo, swap your regular shampoo for one with a hydrating formula or a moisturizing cleansing conditioner. The latter product can clean your scalp and strands of any buildup just like your shampoo, but it’s formulated with conditioning properties to help your hair look and feel soft.
In addition to swapping out your shampoo for one with a hydrating formula, consider cutting back on the number of times you wash your hair a week. Cutting back to washing your hair just two or three times a week may help your hair feel less dry.

Pick up a leave-in conditioner.
After you’ve shampooed and conditioned your hair, the first styling product you put on your strands should help your hair look and feel as moisturized as possible. A leave-in conditioner can give you all the hydrating and softening benefits of a conditioner without having to rinse it out. Find a leave-in conditioner that works with your hair type and dry hair will be a thing of the past.

Deep condition weekly.
Although you may save time by skipping wash day, you’ll need to find some time at least once a week to give your hair a little TLC. Deep conditioning your hair once a week is one of the best ways to moisturize your strands. A deep conditioning treatment can make your hair look and feel softer.

Cut back on heat styling.
We’re not telling you to quit heat styling your hair altogether, but we recommend cutting back to once a week. Hot tools like flat irons and blow dryers can zap moisture from your strands, which is a recipe for major breakage. When you do heat style your hair, make sure to prep your strands with a moisturizing deep conditioning treatment and a heat protectant to help minimize damage.

Opt for dark hair colors.
Deciding to color your hair a light hue almost always requires bleaching your strands. Even in the hands of a professional, bleach will cause damage to your hair and seriously dry it out. The last thing you want to do is to make it look and feel even drier when you have dry hair.
While your stylist will do their best to minimize the damage caused by bleach, there is no way to prevent it. Instead, avoid bleach altogether by opting for dark hair colors. Most dark hair colors are formulated without bleach and are much less likely to dry out your strands.
Ask for help.
If your hair is absolutely parched and nothing you do seems to help, it’s time to seek the help of a professional. A licensed stylist should be able to assess your hair concerns and address your hair needs. In no time, your dry hair will be a thing of the past.
