How to Moisturize Dry, Dull Hair: Hair Conditioner Tips

dry hair
Hair can get dry and dull looking for lots of reasons. Some reasons are thermal styling tools, sun exposure, chemicals in water, hair color, perm and other chemicals used for hair services and dry winter air.

The products you use on your hair and the way you treat your hair can improve the way it looks and feels plus, actually strengthen it.


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

Massage
Massage your scalp for 5-10 minutes daily to stimulate circulation and oil production in the scalp. Your natural oils will condition your hair.

Wash Less
Don't wash your hair everyday. It can strip out your natural oils leaving your hair dry and lifeless. Try washing every 2-3 days. Even better, just wash it once or twice a week.

Use the Right Products
Use a shampoo and conditioner made for dry hair. Try Aveda Dry Remedy Shampoo and Conditioner

Conditioner tip: 
Make sure your conditioner has the chance to absorb into your hair. When the hair is very wet, the conditioner runs off of the hair instead of absorbing into it. Squeeze the water out of your hair after shampooing. You can even use a towel to squeeze the water out. Then, apply your conditioner. Leave the conditioner on your hair for 3-5 minutes then rinse.

Use a leave it conditioner
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. It also provides protection from thermal styling tools.

How to use Moroccan Oil:
You can apply it to hair that is wet or dry.

Use on wet hair:
Wash your hair and towel dry. Pour a small amount of oil to your hands and massage it through your hair. Comb with a wide tooth comb. Then, blow dry and style.

Use on dry hair:
To reduce frizz on dry hair, pour a small amount of oil to your hands and work it into your hair for beautiful shine.

Use a Hair Mask
Give your hair a deep conditioning treatment once a week with a hair mask. Wash your hair, squeeze out the water, apply the hair mask, leave on for 10 minutes and rinse. Try Moroccan Oil Intense Hydrating Mask.

Blow Dry Quicker
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 with your hands.

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 at least 15 minutes while you do other beauty rituals. The longer you wear the towel the better.

5. Divide your hair into 4 large sections and clip the sections up. You are going to blow dry and style the hair in small sections at a time. Start with the back sections. Take down the bottom halves of the clipped up back sections. Aim the blow dryer from the roots of the hair towards the ends to smooth down the cuticle of the hair. Take down the rest of the back sections and dry them. Move on to the top sections and continue in the same fashion.

Try Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Shampoo and Conditioner. The Super Skinny products are designed to displace water and constrict the hair for faster blow drying.
