How to Moisturize Hair – Tips
Dry hair have the tendency to be rough, frizzy and love to break and to knot. But how to moisturize hair in the summertime as well as in winter months without loosing your mind and get frustrated with bad hair days? Here some tips on how to keep your hair moisturize and hydrated all year long.
Tip n.1 – Follow a balanced diet that includes foods with essential fatty acids and natural silicon.
Drink as much water as possible, at least 1.5 liters per day. Spring water recommended, but at least filtered tap water is a must to get the best hydration.
Essential fatty acids naturally moisturize your hair.
The sources of these fats include fish, avocados and olives.
Silicon strengthens the hair shaft and helps keep them bright and easier to comb. You can find it in potatoes, cucumbers and asparagus.
The intake of water improves cell functions, helping the hair to have a softer appearance and healthier. Try cucumber water, maybe with a couple of leaves of mint: simply delicious!
Tip n.2 – Try to wash your hair less, to maintain hair moisture
Washing your hair every day with a regular shampoo deprives them of their natural oils. Even if the hair washed is too dehydrated, they take on a greasy appearance as quickly as under normal conditions.
When you remove the natural oils, your skin increases the production to compensate, making you feel the need to continue to wash them again.
Try to wash your hair once every two days.
This way they will be anointed the second day, but after about a month your hair should be clean, healthy and hydrated.
People with naturally dry hair should further decrease the frequency of their washes.
Tip n.3 – Use moisturizing shampoo and conditioner that are compatible with your hair type
When you want to buy a moisturizing hair product, look for shampoos, conditioners and masques that contain glucids, proteins and lypids. These are able to hydrate all types of hair.
Search for glucids to provide an energy boost for the nutrition of the hair fiber straight from the root. Silk protein between the ingredients if you have curly hair, because these products can hydrate your locks without weighing down your curls.
Fine coloured hair has a tendency to seem greasy when using dense creams, so look for light products with ingredients like sunflower seed extracts help stop colour fade and provide the hair with essential antioxidants.
Vitamins A, B5, E & C enrich the hair fibre to give it lots of hydration. Vitamins make then hair absorb instantly hydration and all the proteins they need into the cortex of the hair.
Kakadu Plum Extracts can help stimulate the production of Elastin and Collagen. Desert Lime extracts distribuite superior proteins, especially with low pH levels.
The very rough and brittle hair may require treatments with hot oils, because the heat activates the oil and fixes it to the strands.
The very emollient ingredients such as shea butter help maintain soft and easy to comb your normal hair. If your hair is dry only in the colder months, you can change products when the seasons change.
In addition to using moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, use a deep treatment or a moisturizing mask once a week like Hydrate.Me Masque from Kevin Murphy will help smooth the hair as well.
Tip n.4 Avoid drying your hair with a hair dryer when not necessary, or use heat protection milks.
Though in some cases it is necessary for you to dry your hair with hair dryer or style them with a flat iron, try to do so only weekdays and special occasions.
Try to use heat protectors milks and creams before you style and blow-dry your hair with hot tools. This will definitely help maintain your hair healthy and moisturized.
Nectar thermique by Kerastase is definitely a fantastic heat protector that not only prevents your hair from breaking while blow-drying, but also keep them moisturized and smooth.
Tip n.5 – Brush your hair at least twice a day to distribute natural oils and maintain the ends hydrated
We encourage you to get a wood paddle brush and brush your hair at least twice a day, it will help distribute the natural oils from the root all the way to the ends and keep them hydrated and moisturized.
