How to Moisturize Dry Dull Hair

dry hair
Hair can get dry and dull looking for lots of reasons. Thermal styling tools, sun exposure, chemicals in water, dry winter air, etc. 

Here are a few tips to help moisturize dry hair and give it some life:


Massage your scalp for 5-10 minutes daily to stimulate circulation and oil production.



Don't wash your hair everyday. It can over dry your hair. Try washing every 2-3 days.


Use shampoo, conditioner and deep conditioner for dry hair. Aveda has a nice Dry Remedy Ritual Kit.  It includes a hair mask to use weekly to deep condition. At Aveda salons and at aveda.com

Make sure your conditioner has a chance to absorb into the hair. 
When the hair is very wet, the conditioner runs off instead of absorbing into the hair. After shampooing, squeeze the water out of your hair before applying a rinse off conditioner. You can even use a towel to really squeeze it out. Leave the conditioner on 3-5 minutes, then rinse.



Reduce your blow drying time for less 
exposure to the blow dryer's drying heat. You will save energy too. A blow dryer uses 1500 watts of energy per 
hour! 

1. Squeeze the water out of your hair.

2. Wrap your hair in a towel while you dry off and apply your body lotion.

3. Remove towel and comb out your hair with a wide tooth comb.

4. Wrap your hair in a towel again for 15 minutes.

5. Apply a styling product designed to speedup drying time. Paul Mitchell Super Skinny products displace water and constrict the hair for faster drying.


6. Divide your hair into sections to blow dry and style sections at a time starting at the nape.  Aim your blow dryer from the roots of the hair to the ends of the hair to smooth down the hair cuticle. Find Paul Mitchell products at salons. Go to paulmitchell.com



Use a thermal protection product before using hot styling tools like curling irons and flat irons.  Aquage Beyond Shine protects and adds shine. At salons. Go to  aquage.com for locations. 


Use a leave in conditioner. A hot item right now is Moroccan Oil. It contains Argan oil which is extracted from the nut of the Argan tree. It is a vitamin rich, anti-oxidant oil that smooths and conditions hair without making it feel greasy.

Here is how to use Moroccan oil:

You can apply it to wet or dry hair.
Wash your hair and towel dry.  
Pour a small amount of oil to your hands and massage it through your hair then, blow dry and straighten.
To reduce frizz on dry hair, pour a small amount of oil to your hands and work it into your hair for beautiful shine!

Find it in salons. 

Go to moroccanoil.com for locations.
