What Causes Dry Hair and How to Fix Dry Hair

Dry hair is caused by the lack of hydration in the scalp and the body. Your hair, skin, and nails can indicate when you're taking care of yourself and when it needs more nutrients. But, what you apply topically is just as important as what you consume. That’s where Leave-In Conditioners save the day.

First, let's dive into what dry hair indicates. 

What is the cause of dry hair?

Dry hair is caused by a dry scalp. When the scalp isn't nourished with oils it lacks moisture and hydration, leading to hair that grows without its needed nutrients. Dry hair can be caused by stripping the oils by over-shampooing and using heated appliances. 

How often should YOU wash your hair?

Washing your hair daily is necessary for some, and for others twice a week is good enough. When we take into account the chlorine, heavy metals, and shampoos that strip the oils, washing your hair daily can be detrimental to the scalp if done daily. A good rule of thumb, if you must wash your hair, is to use a hair rinse, you can do a D.I.Y version of this or purchase a product. But this can keep your scalp clean and not over strip the oils before you shampoo! 

Shampoo Aftercare

You've washed your hair and now you're worried about what to use to keep your hair frizz-free. You should always remember to nourish the hair with a leave-in conditioner! Leave-in sprays are usually best used for aftercare. These easy to use conditioners are the simplest and fastest way to keep the scalp and hair nourished without the weight and sticky feeling. Leave-in conditioners are so potent and light, so you only need a little bit! Comb it out and style to your desire! 

Should I use a Detangler or Leave-In conditioner?

A detangler is meant to help remove the tangles and knots in the hair, but it does not impact the overall health of the hair. Daily Dose® Spray Leave-In Conditioner will help restore moisture and strengthen the overall health of your hair. Most leave-in conditioners are made for specific types of hair, but our leave-in conditioner is perfect for all hair types! 

How can I fix my dry hair naturally?

Of course, you're wondering if you can fix your hair naturally. The answer is yes. But, it definitely includes the steps I mentioned above. 

  • Choose a shampoo that is gentle but easily cleanses the scalp. 
  • Always keep yourself hydrated with water and check with your doctor and perhaps add multivitamins for hair skin and nails.
  • Always use a leave-in conditioner after your shampoo regimen!
