There is nothing worse than having brittle, dry hair. When you can't seem to keep any moisture in your locks, it can look terrible. If you are anything like me, you strive to get beautiful, glossy hair. There are a few simple things you can do that will change the way your hair looks and feels on a day to day basis. The longer you leave your hair in a bad condition, the worse it will get. Follow these five natural tips to solve all your dry hair problems.
Let hair dry naturally
I can't stress how important this point is, so listen up. After you shower, you have to let your hair dry by itself. Yes, we all have those times when we are in a rush, but that is no excuse. If you keep using heat to dry your locks, they will lose their natural moisture. Girls get into the habit of putting their hair through hell each day. You need to cut it out before it is too late. If it helps, wash your hair at night so that you have some time for it to dry.
Avoid curling tongs
If you want curly hair, that doesn't mean that you need to burn it with tongs. When you use curling tongs or a wand on your hair, it scorches it. Sure, your hair will hold that shape for hours, but that comes at the price of permanently damaging it. While your hair is still damp from the shower, you should twirl it around a piece of material and tie a knot at the end of it. As your hair dries, it will hold a wavy, curly form. This method is much better for your hair than using tongs, and looks fantastic if you pull it off.
Use Argan oil
If your hair is already dry and straw-like, you need to do something to put the moisture back into it. You can try various hair masks so that you can try to repair some of the original damage. It might also be a good idea to start using LT Organics Pure Argan Oil as a daily conditioning treatment. The oil will help to lock moisture into your hair so that it looks glossy and healthy once again. After a week or so, you will start to see a difference when you use the oil, and so it is well worth it.
Don't wash it too often
How often do you wash your hair? There are some ladies out there who wash their hair every day. That is insane because it is terrible for the condition of your hair. Every single time that you wash your hair, you are stripping it of its natural oils. You should only wash your hair once every three days or so. It is hard to break the habit, especially if you have got used to washing it all the time. You have to try, though, for the sake of your hair.
Use a swimming cap
Exercise might be excellent for your general health, but swimming can be fatal to your hair. If you swim in a public pool, there will be a ton of chlorine in it. That substance dries out hair more than anything else. I would be no means suggest that you quit swimming because that is silly. Instead, you need to get a swimming cap to cover your hair. Yes, it might look odd when you are in the pool, but it is worth it to keep your hair strong.
