Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s the hot, humid climates, chlorinated pools, and shower water, or dry and windy weather. Whatever is causing your hair to become dry and frizzy, we are about to share some simple treatments you can try.
Causes of Dry Frizzy Hair
Before we get into the treatments, it’s important to understand what’s causing your hair to become so dry and frizzy, so you can potentially eliminate the cause.
- Hot and humid climates
- Exposure to too much chlorine from swimming pools or even your shower
- Exposure to too much saltwater
- Spending a lot of time in the wind
- Over-washing your hair, which can strip it of its natural oils
- Excessive blow-drying or flat-ironing
- Chemical hair treatments such as hair dye or keratin
- Product buildup or allergic reactions to certain hair care products
- Health conditions, such as hypothyroidism or others that result in hormonal imbalance and the inability for your body to produce natural oils
Hair Treatments for Dry Frizzy Hair
Don’t be startled by the never-ending list of potential causes for dry frizzy hair. Fortunately, there are simple ways to treat it.
Don’t Wash Your Hair Daily
Washing your hair every day strips it of its natural oils and can easily lead to dry hair that becomes frizzy and brittle. Additionally, the hair care products you use to wash your hair might also be leading to product buildup or damaging your hair follicles and pores, making it difficult for healthy strands to regrow. Try washing your hair 2-3 times per week or every other day if your hair gets oily fast.
Don’t Overheat It
Whether it’s too much sunlight, hot water, or hair treatments and styling that require intense heat, it’s best to avoid them. With every heat treatment, you’re damaging your hair and slowing down its recovery. While your hair eventually grows back, excessive heat won’t allow it to recover completely.
Apply Soothing Creams & Moisturizers
If dry and frizzy hair isn’t a recurring problem for you, a quick solution might be to apply a drop of coconut oil, Aloe Vera, or olive oil and massage it onto your scalp. Sometimes a quick, natural moisturizing session will do the trick.
If you’ve noticed your scalp isn’t as moisturized as you think it should be, here are some home remedies to treat dry scalp.
Install a Shower Filter
By installing a Pure Blue shower filter you can eliminate 98% of the chlorine and toxins in your shower water, leaving your natural moisture levels healthy and your hair sleek, shiny, and frizz-free.
Whether frizzy hair is something you are born with, or simply a result of spending too much time in the pool, you’re just a few showers away from getting the gorgeous moisturized locks you deserve.
