Dry and lifeless hair is the result of improper care or daring experiments with dyes. Such strands practically do not lend themselves to styling, bristle and look unkempt. To put them in order, you have to work hard.
Does your hair look like straw? This means that the cortex is seriously damaged. It is located directly under the scales, which fit snugly against the trunk along the entire length of the hair. If the scales are revealed as a result of hair dye or aggressive shampoo, the detergent goes directly to the rod. The scales no longer close, and now your hair suddenly became fluffy and withered.
To close the scales, you need to wash your hair with a professional smoothing shampoo. Silicone-based formulations are especially popular now. They are effective, but not entirely harmless. enveloping the hair, prevent the cuticle from breathing. Much more effective and safer are shampoos with silk proteins and amino acids. Sunsilk, Pantene, Syoss have such.
Along with shampoo, be sure to use conditioner and mask. Conditioner is used with daily washing, mask - 1-2 times a week. The conditioner makes it easier to detangle frizzy damaged hair and softens water. The mask deeply moisturizes the hair and nourishes it with nutrients. The mask for the treatment of dry hair should include vitamin complexes and essential oils. Keep the mask for no more than 5-6 minutes, then rinse with a stream of warm water.
If you have dry hair, do not wring or rub the strands with a towel after washing. It is recommended to use terry or bamboo towels: they absorb more moisture than cotton and synthetic. Gently blot the strands and comb with a wooden comb. No metal or plastic combs or brushes! It is also advisable to refuse drying with a hairdryer.
Moisturize dried hair with an indelible product. They have an easy fixation and have a thermal protective effect. Indelible oils have a beneficial effect on colored hair: they give brightness and shine to the selected shade. Do not overdo it, you need to apply just a couple of drops in the palm of your hand and evenly distribute the composition over the hair. Replace gels and varnishes with mousse and foam. Tongs and irons will have to be temporarily put aside until better times.
