Dry hair is one of the three most common \types (along with normal and oily types), which requires special care products to give it shine, volume, beauty and health.
Hair can become dry for two reasons. The first one is a natural predisposition (this especially applies to blondes, whose tresses are very thin and quickly loses moisture). And the second one is regular mechanical damage. For example, it can become moistureless because of blow drying, the use of shampoos with a high pH, frequent dyeing and perm. The air humidity also directly affects – the drier it is, the worse for you. It may quickly fade and lose moisture and volume. This, in turn, can lead to flaking and split ends! And of course, we can't discount unhealthy diet and lack of essential vitamins, sun and oxygen baths. How to provide the dry hair with proper care and nutrition in urban conditions? By buying a special shampoo!
Shampoos for such a type are based on nutrient elements (mainly oils). Oil perfectly nourishes and restores, making soft and shiny look. Professional cosmetics often contain the following types of oils:
nut (coconut, macadamia, almond and hazelnut);
All of them actively restore the scalp, providing it with care and nutrition. In addition, the film formed by the oils helps retain moisture and makes it shiny and healthy.
In addition to the oils, professional products include keratin, which makes your hair grow, nourishes it and restores its structure. Besides, such products may also contain proteins of silk, wheat, rice and milk. Honey, peach, linden, calendula and chamomile also have a healing effect. An important feature of this type of shampoos is a content of gentle surfactants that don’t damage your chevelure and gently cleanse it. Such products contain glycerin and panthenol, which also actively nourish your hair, making it soft and bright.
How to use shampoo correctly?
Dry locks should be washed less often than the oily or normal one, as its natural protection is very weak, and water and shampoo wash it away. You should also pay attention to the water temperature and adjust it. After all, both high and low temperatures have a negative effect. You need to massage your scalp gently and carefully, without twisting movements (the same applies to towel drying). After using the shampoo, you need to rinse it properly and use the balm to make it soft and silky. Meanwhile, the cuticles need to seal and get filled with nutrients.
How to choose a shampoo?
Most shampoos for dry hair are classified as regenerating and nourishing. At the MAKEUP store there are also specialized formulas that contain a certain amount of oils, vitamins, and soft cleansing components.
