The 'At-Home' Guide To Fix Dry, Brittle Strands
The 'At-Home' Guide To Fix Dry, Brittle Strands
It's no unknown a fact that maintaining healthy hair requires a consistent routine filled with products that contain the proper nutrients. If your hair tends to be on the dry side, there are several natural treatments you can use to boost your hair's health and hydration at home without needing to visit the salon. While the thought of using hair oils or masks might seem intimidating at first, we promise it's not as difficult as it seems. Here is all you need to put into practice and get all the details on the best at-home treatments to treat dry hair, and the results are in.
1. Try Some Real Coffee Beans Oil.
We forgo the classic coconut oil hair masque instead of another lesser-known oil for instant shine. Bella Vita Organic Real Coffee Beans Hair Oil adds shine, repairs damaged ends and protects hair from the sun and dandruff. This volumizing hair growth oil is rich in nourishing fatty acids, natural collagen, Amla, Shikakai and Brahmi. Just be sure to cater the application process to your hair's texture and density. If you have medium to thick hair, oils are good, but if you have fine hair, oils can tend to weigh the hair down. If you want to hydrate ends with oils but have fine hair, add the oil to some warm water in a fine mist spray bottle and spray on damp hair.
2. Cleanse and Blow-Dry Strategically.
Another genius tip for anyone with dry hair: Try adding a touch of oil to the ends of your hair before shampooing with Coconut Argan Shampoo for Frizzy, Dry & Damaged Hair from Bella Vita Organic, as it hydrates them while keeping them protected. Follow the process by conditioning your hair. When drying your hair, use a Turkish cotton towel as they are the most absorbent, to remove as much of the water in your hair before using a blow-dryer. Then we recommend focusing on drying the roots of the hair first. Depending on the texture of your hair, leave the ends to air-dry or lower the temperature of the dryer to medium to protect them from heat.
3. Go For A Silk Pillowcase.
We recommend you switching out your pillowcase from the standard cotton to silk. Our biggest tip for dry hair is to sleep on a silk pillowcase. This is the most passive action you can take to make the biggest difference in your hair and skin. Regular cotton pillowcases absorb and pull moisture from your skin and hair, leaving it drier than before you went to bed, while silk pillowcases allow your hair to soak and absorb oils.
4. Invest In Hair Masks.
There are a couple of different types of dryness. Some hair types need keratin added in, and some need more cream-based moisture. Knowing what type of dryness or damage you have can help avoid common mistakes like thinking that your hair needs moisture when it needs protein or vice versa.
If your hair has been over-processed, chances are that oils may not be enough. We would suggest addressing dry hair from multiple aspects. In addition to living a healthy lifestyle, A hair mask like Bella Vita Organic One For All Hair Mask will allow your hair to grow stronger along with preventing future dryness.
5. Make DIY Masks At Home.
The best DIY at-home treatment involves melting together a teaspoon of organic unrefined honey with coconut oil. Honey acts as a humectant, sealing in the moisture from the coconut oil, making it more effective than if used alone. Mixing the two can make a real difference in hair, just be sure to thoroughly rinse out when finished so there's no leftover residue.
6. Boar Bristle Brushes Will Be Your New BFF
Brushing hair is an easy and effective way to boost its health right away. Brushing the hair delicately when it is dry with a smoothing brush will pull moisture from the scalp through the ends. The action hydrates the dry ends with your scalp's natural oils, in return keeping it hydrated. Just be sure to use a boar bristle brush, as they're most effective at distributing oil. "It is more elastic and can pull fragile strands, causing breakage. Our current favourite is a combination of oil-distributing boar bristles and detangling nylon bristles.
7. Try Using Aloe Vera.
Pure aloe vera isn't just for soothing sunburned skin. Thanks to antioxidants, fatty acids, and natural vitamins A, C, and E, this plant locks in moisture anywhere it's applied. Aloe-infused hair care products like shampoo and conditioner are a great way to implement this powerful ingredient into your routine.
While we love using aloe-infused hair care products, if our hair is damaged and dry, we apply it in its natural state. Just slice open the long-stemmed aloe leaf and apply the cooling gel directly to the hair.
8. Repair Damage With Bella Vita Organic.
For colour-treated hair that might have been over-processed, we would suggest at-home Bella Vita Organic treatments to repair the damage. For instance, Bella Vita Organic Ginger & Rosemary Hair Care Series strengthens the chemical bonds in the hair's cuticle, meaning it reseals split ends and prevent hair fall.
We also recommend using a leave-in conditioner and preventing heat damage. We strongly recommend only using non-damaging hot tools, as it's a myth that the hotter the iron, the better you can style your hair.
