Most of us run into this question on a daily basis, how to get rid of dry and frizzy hair? One of the most common reasons for dry hair is lack of moisture. Dry and frizzy hair cause dandruff and unwanted build-up of sebum. y haiThe best way to control hair dryness is by keeping balance in moisture, protein, and nutritive oils. Also here we discuss beauty tips on how to get rid of dry hair and frizzy hair.
There is no magic bullet when it comes to solving this common problem. The only way is to determine the cause and tailor the cure of the underlying issue.
1. The daily shampoo is not a great idea
Hair products help us in several ways but not if used daily. Shampoo cleanses the scalp of hair and gets rid of sebum build-up. If shampoo is used on a daily basis it might take out the nutritive oils in hair roots which results in increasing oil production. Alcohol-free shampoo can be a great relief to the hair. Avoid names like ethanol, ethyl alcohol, SD alcohol or any alcohol with the word “prop” like propanol, isopropyl alcohol, etc. Look for a shampoo with alcohol with ‘c’ or ‘s’ in starts like stearyl alcohol and cetyl alcohol.
2. Ignoring your diet.
Hair dryness may result due to many factors but if you don’t drink enough water and have no proper diet then its time to change yourself. You need to take proper care of your daily routine to make sure your skin and hair stay healthy. Hair is primarily made up of a protein called keratin so it’s very important to take sufficient protein daily.
The best healthy and lean protein is present in lean meats, low-fat dairy products, nuts, and seeds. Fatty acids are taken from salmon fish play a key role in getting rid or dry hair. Folic acid is another essential element for hair, it’s mostly found in avocados, oranges, lentils, chickpeas, spinach, turkey and broccoli. Zinc present in cheese, nuts, legumes, beef, eggs, oysters and poultry. All fruits, vegetables, and nuts have vitamins, biotin, and copper.
3. Use heat protectant or silicone serum.
Heat styling tools should not be used without a heat protectant. The excess heat can damage your hair to a certain extent. Silicone serum or heat protectant do not grease the hair but adds shine as well as gives them a healthy look. Apply it on the tips of the hair then gradually work your way up. Comb throughout your hair with a wide-toothed comb to distribute it evenly in your hair. You can make your own protectant by taking 1/3 hair conditioner +2/3 water.
4. Follow a good hair care routine.
Hair also needs nutrition and care like any other body part. There is an 80% percent chance that the people with hair care routine have better hair than those who don’t. Massage your hair with almond oil, coconut oil, or any 1% within your nearby store.# Massage your scalp with any beneficial oil every once a week. Use a gentle hair mask every twice a month as well.
