Dry hair is caused by various factors, including environmental conditions, bad haircare habits and illness

Dry hair is caused by various factors, including environmental conditions, bad haircare habits and illness. Environmental conditions that may cause dry hair include:

¦  Living in a dry, hot climate.

¦  Spending a lot of time in the sun.

¦  Frequently swimming in chlorinated water.

Tips for dry, brittle hair:

Co-wash

This process means using a conditioner that cleans and moisturises your hair.

Pat your hair dry After a wash, do not forcefully rub your hair with a towel. This leads to breakage.

Instead, gently pat your hair dry with a soft towel to absorb water.

Cut off dead ends

Many of us struggle to grow out our hair, but cutting away the defective part of your hair is a proven method to rehabilitate it.

Avoid chemicals

Relaxers and hair dyes tend to dry out black hair. It’s best to avoid these products while you’re trying to restore your hair. Either go natural or wait a little longer to straighten or colour your hair.

Opt for a heat-less hairstyle

Allow your hair time to rest from the stress of blow-dryers and flat irons. Choose a style that doesn’t require heating tools, such as braids or another type of heat-less hairdo
