Dry hair: 10 tips to repair it

We space out shampoos when we have dry hair

Washing your hair too often leads in the long term to the fragility of the scalp and the scales and encourages dryness throughout your hair. Ideally, hairdressers recommend one (or two) shampoos every three days to preserve the quality of the hair and prevent it from breaking. For those who accumulate the inconveniences and who also have greasy roots (it happens), a small blow of dry shampoo or a pretty bun on the third day and the trick is done!

Avoid aggressive coloring

As you probably already know, repeated “chemical” colorings can damage the most fragile hair or the most sensitive scalps. If we all know that our hair does not tolerate the action of certain active ingredients contained in the coloring, we can not help but think of the beautiful reflections that they will bring us. But at what cost? In reality, if our hair is already dry, frequent coloring will accentuate this aspect. So we try to space out the applications as much as possible. And if we have white hair to mask, we alternate with colorings with natural compositions less aggressive.

Combine a mask and a hair day cream

To the question “can we apply a hair day cream after having already applied a mask?”, the answer is yes! If you have damaged hair, don’t hesitate to do everything possible to pamper it. The mask for dry hair, which is done once or twice a week, has the effect of moisturizing and nourishing the hair in depth while the day cream, used daily, is used to sublimate, moisturize the surface and discipline the lengths.

Oil is used to nourish dry hair

Oil on hair works and it is not a legend. So if you have dry hair, go ahead and apply more. Thanks to the new formulas developed, the hair quickly appears smoother, softer, less rough, more beautiful, what! And all this, without weighing it down. However, while our lengths are happy to be slathered with oil several times a week, the scalp can be resistant to the concept, with the risk of ending up with roots worthy of three weeks of “no-poo”. That’s not the point, you’ll agree. When you have an oily scalp, you should limit the application to the lengths, insisting on the tips.


One piece of information that is not a scoop but that needs to be mentioned again (a little reminder never hurts):

the straightener damages the hair.

Yes, your Jennifer Aniston-style straightening comes at a price and your hair knows it all too well. If your hair is dry, using a straightener will make it worse, as the high heat (>180°) causes the scales to deteriorate. We then try to make days of break during which we leave in the cupboard our straightening iron to the profit of a more flexible or curly movement. Needless to say, it is strictly forbidden to use your plates on damp or wet hair (unless your straightener is designed for it). Finally, don’t hesitate to brush your mane with thermo-active care products which, under the effect of heat, will release protective active ingredients and give your hair a shiny appearance.

Do a pre-shampoo

A what? A pre-shampoo. As the name suggests, it should be done before shampooing. The idea is to apply a treatment to the entire head of hair for a varying length of time before taking a shower. If you shampoo in the morning, we recommend that you leave the treatment on your hair overnight. If you don’t have all night, cover the treatment with a thick towel heated in the microwave. The heat opens the scales slightly and allows the product to penetrate deeply. You can also choose to leave an oil on before shampooing, for that prefer water-dispersible oils such as Ales oil which is perfectly eliminated in contact with water.
