Overlooked Causes for Dry Hair

Overlooked Causes for Dry Hair

The causes of dry hair and scalp are most often interrelated. Environmental conditions have caused dry hair through overexposure to the sun and wind and the presence of minerals and chlorine in water used to wash our hair. Dry hair can also occur due to the result of swimming or bathing in pools and spas with chlorinated water, or hair treatments using chemicals, peroxide bleach, color developer, and hair relaxer chemicals and even from straightening tools and hair dryers.

The use of hard water for bathing can cause dry hair and a dry scalp. Are you aware that hard water can trigger scalp eczema or dandruff, thinning hair, and dry flaky skin? You need to be careful when you go to a salon and have your hair treated. It could be possible that hard water is used.

Hard water has hair resistant to p or coloring and may lead to hair loss. The water you use in washing your hair, scalp and skin comes from ground and surface water. Ground water comes from the well or from local treatment plant where water is derived from a well's pumping water from the ground. The source is from rain passing through aquifers, which are layers of minerals. The acidity (pH below 7) of the rain increases the dissolving effect of minerals. The dissolved solids are found in the water when pumped above the ground and used to bathe. Surface water, on the other hand, comes from the water that is deriving from the surface source. This is water coming from river or lake. The surface water usually contains lesser minerals because it has never been filtered down through the mineral layers.

Water hardness is determined by the level of calcium that is in the water either found naturally from the ground or put into the water by the treatment plant. While calcium is the element that determines hardness of water, there are many other elements in the water that affect the texture, volume, shine, control and health of hair. One of the minerals that effect hair dry and dry scalp is Calcium. Calcium is the mineral that determines hardness of water.

Effects of calcium on hair are as follows:

1. Calcium makes the hair feel dry and weighted down. It can cause a perm to appear relaxed. Calcium that builds up on scalp can cause flaking, giving the appearance of dandruff.

2. Calcium can choke the hair at the mouth of the follicle causing the hair to break off. This enables the coating of the scalp resulting to blocking further new growth.

A great way to get rid of dry hair and scalp is to condition the hair. Add natural oils to your hair like avocado, coconut, jojoba or olive oil to your hair. These oils are great conditioning regimen to use before shampooing the hair. You may also use naturals like apple cider vinegar to get rid of dandruff and dry scalp. Most importantly, rinse well and use the proper hair treatment for your hair to avoid having to experience dry hair and dry scalp.

There are several salon hair care products that can help with dry hair including some of the popular brands like Hair Remedie. Look for products that smooth down hair if you have curly dry issues or frizzy issues or just look for hydrating products for straight or normal types of locks.

How You Should Wash Your Hair

How Should You Wash Your Hair

How most of us wash our hair

Most of us usually spend more time thinking about styling tools and the products we use then how we wash our hair. For the majority of us, we get in the shower and reach for the shampoo, followed by the conditioner and wrap our hair up in a terrycloth towel. Does that routine sound familiar? Let’s talk about what you can change to not only improve the look of your hair but cut down on how much of those expensive products and use the best hair towel.

The Wash

When it’s time to wash your hair (once a day, week or every other day), you don’t always have to use shampoo. This was a big change for me. I use an all natural co-wash or cleansing conditioner  (Mop Top - you can find here) and just wash with a conditioner. It really does a great job of cleaning hair without drying it out. I only use shampoo before I condition 1 out of 5 times. In addition to cutting out the shampoo, consider adding a deep conditioner once a week. This doesn’t have to be a super-expensive hair masque. There are plenty of homemade recipes to try. My favorite usually have olive oil and milk or yogurt. I can usually put something together by just using items already in my kitchen. The masque can be used with or without your best hair towel.

Conditioning hair is very important on fighting frizz and damage. A great way to help hair stay protected and hydrated is to not completely wash out all conditioner. I wash out about 90% of the conditioner. Hair maintains a clean feeling and not weighed down. Most of the time your hair should not “feel” squeaky clean. It’s a great alternative to an extra leave in conditioner. Everyone’s hair is different and some may need an extra leave in conditioner. Some people use the "plopping" method at this point with the hair towel to wrap after the leave in conditioner is added but before the styling products. Try it out and find out what is best for you. Don't be afraid to alter your routine if it is not working for you. I have found that minor adjustments can make huge differences. Changing how often I shampoo to the type of hair towel may take a lot of effort from your morning routine and gain some precious sleep time back.

Healthy Hair Tips

Shampoo Hair Less Often

Washing hair removes all of your natural oils so shampoo less and use cleansing conditioners instead

Put the Brush Down

Wet hair is vulnerable so be gentle. Wide tooth combs help stop breakage, especially when wet.

Stop Using Terry Cloth Towels 

Hair is never more susceptible to damage than when it is wet. Don’t dry it was rough terry cloth, ever. Use soft fabric to gently dry hair. Hair Remedie Frizz Eliminating Towel has three layers. Both outer layers are made from super-soft t-shirt fabric with the inside made from absorbent terry cloth. It protects while drying for stunning hair with less effort and fewer products.
