Dry hair can be very frustrating, especially if you try to do everything to fight damaged hair. The first step in addressing this is understanding the main reason and taking it from there.
Your lifestyle is crucial in maintaining healthy hair. Concentrate on a nourishing diet that focuses on good nutrition that will keep you in great health. Take your vitamins and exercise regularly. You will find that this will show in your overall aura giving you, and your hair, a gorgeous glow.
Your daily regimen might involve drying your hair with a hair dryer, or styling with a curler or an iron—these habits can cause great havoc to your hair. If you must, apply a leave-in conditioner to protect your strands from the high heat. Try to avoid using a brush on your hair after you step out of the shower. Have a wide tooth comb handy instead because your hair is fragile when wet.
The extreme heat can mess up your hair. Swimming, sunbathing and outdoor activities can also leave your hair dehydrated. The humidity during the rainy months can also make your hair go haywire. Make sure to always condition your hair especially when you expose your hair to a lot of alcohol and drying chemicals (like chlorine).
A hormonal imbalance is proven to not only disrupt your menses, but also cause acne, skin breakouts, slow metabolism and wreak havoc on your hair. Most pregnant women have lush hair but tend to panic after giving birth because of the amount of hair they lose. Be mindful of your hormones and see a doctor to keep this in check at all times.
Even the healthiest lifestyle needs a good reinforcement. Kérastase recently released an exciting new product called the Resistance Thérapiste. This product promises to help heal even the most damaged hair. It contains Myrothamnus Flabellifolia, a plant which when placed in severe drought, springs back to life when it comes in contact with water. Kérastase Resistance Thérapiste product incorporates the resurrection sap from the plant’s leaves.
Kérastase is available in salons and parlors in Metro Manila.
