Oil And Other Natural Remedies For Dry Hair
We have all had bad hair days, but for people with dry hair bad days can be constant. Dry hair is usually dull and often unmanageable. Things that contribute to the problem include harsh chemicals in shampoos and treatments, hair dryers, hot irons, and even sun exposure and chlorine in pools. So, how can you improve dry hair?
In addition to simply protecting your hair from things like the sun and chlorine, there are some natural and herbal remedies for improving dry hair. One such remedy is to use a shampoo and conditioner that is free of sulfates. This simple change in hair products moisturizes your hair without stripping it of its natural oils. In addition, deep conditioning treatments, or overnight conditioners, can be used periodically to hold moisture in and keep hair healthy.
However, there is another option that works well – oils. No, your hair will not be oily. Some oils that are good for your hair include emu, jojoba and argan. My hairdresser uses oil on my hair after every color treatment and other than smelling great, my hair is softer, stays hydrated, and amazingly takes less time to dry. Other people use oil on their hair every day, or every time they wash it. Argan oil is popular among those who use oil often.
Using argan oil is easy. Simply towel dry hair as normal and put a small amount of argan or other oil in your hand. Massage oil into hair from your scalp to the ends, and wrap hair in a towel. The oil can remain on your hair while you finish getting dressed. When you take your hair out of the towel, fix it as usual, using a hair dryer and iron if necessary. Your hair will be soft and shiny, as if you had just had it professionally done.
