Dry and brittle hair is common in men and women of all ages. Although dry hair may be annoying, it’s usually not a sign of a serious health condition. This is because the sebum is not able to reach the ends of the hair as easily as it can in straight or wavy hair.
Environmental factors, your hair care routine, and your hormonal health can all play a role in keeping your hair moist and healthy. Some reasons your hair might be dry include excessive shampooing, exposure to UV light, blow-drying your hair, thyroid dysfunction and repeated exposure to chlorinated water.
Now that you know the possible reasons for dry and brittle hair, we share with you some ways that you can adopt to treat your (or your man’s) dry, brittle hair.
1. Shampoo less frequently
If your hair tends to be dry, you can try reducing your shampooing frequency to two or three times per week. Use cooler water. Using cool water when you’re washing your hair may help your hair retain moisture.
2. Change your shampoo or conditioner
Switching to a shampoo designed specifically for dry hair may help keep your hair moist. Try leave-in conditioners. Such conditioners are left in your hair for 20 to 30 minutes and help moisturize extremely dry hair.
3. Change your brush
Boar bristle brushes and nylon brushes have bristles that are close together. These bristles can help stimulate your scalp and distribute oil throughout your hair.
4. Air dry your hair
Letting your hair air dry can help you avoid potentially damaging heat that dries out your hair. If you do blow-dry your hair, try sticking to the lowest temperature setting.
5. Make lifestyle changes for healthier hair
Even though genetics play a large role in determining your hair health, good lifestyle habits can also be beneficial. Some changes you can make to maximize your hair health include eating a balanced diet, avoid smoking, minimise exposure to the sun and exercise regularly.
