Dry Hair - March 7th 2012, 12:10 AM

I use top on the line shampoo and conditionor, but yet my hair is STILL dry! I use redken and aphogee, and I even use leave in treatments for wet hair and I've used stuff to put on dry hair. I even got some hair cut off from all the split ends. I don't know what else to do. any advice?

Re: Dry Hair - March 7th 2012, 12:22 AM

I have yet to try this, but I've been reading about how stopping shampooing all together or shampooing only once a week can stop dry hair and leave it more smooth and shiny. There are different methods to do it, by either washing with water and using conditioner or using a washcloth to smooth the oils in your hair from youir scalp to the rest of your hair. It sounds sort of weird, and I have yet to try it, but I'm thinking about it because I'm an environmentalist and it's something to look into to say the least. Here's some information.

Definitely shampoo less. You try shampooing every other day and just using conditioner in the days in between to help keep the natural oils in your hair.
Not using any heat will also help a lot, as will using leave-in conditioners.

I never use blow dryers or straighteners. and If I shampoo less I get a cow lick when my hair is oily, and my hair is a little past my shoulders, I used to obsessively dye my hair and haven't dyed it in almost two year

About how many days does it take for your hair to get oily? They make dry shampoos which basically just soak up any oil in your hair. You could use one of those in between washes. Its a good idea not to wash your hair everyday because this strips it of its natural moisturizers which can make it more dry.

Aside from what everyone else has already said, are you washing your hair with hot water? I know that if you have hot showers all the time, that can do damage to your scalp and in turn, your hair. If I have too many hot showers it really dries my hair out. So, if that's the case, you could try having a slightly cooler shower.



Rescue is possible. Love is the movement ♥

You should shampoo your hair every other day. If you shampoo every day, it strips your hair of natural oils but if you shower every two days then the oil can build up and that's not good for your hair either.
