Homemade Hydration for dry hair: check out how-to tips, what products to use, and what to care for with the strands to soften opacity.
Homemade moisturizing is a simple, effective, and essential treatment for the health of dry hair. These strands are naturally opaque, more prone to frizz and breakage, three factors that directly impact the locks’ appearance and cause discomfort in everyday life.
With a homemade hydration routine for dry hair, it is possible to reduce opacity and frizz and prevent this type of hair’s breakage.
The first step in getting the treatment right is to understand the difference between dry hair and dry hair: dry hair is naturally so, due to less oil production on the scalp or the shape of the strands that prevent this oil from reaching the ends, as is the case with curly and frizzy hair.
On the other hand, dry hair looks like this after suffering dehydration through some chemical or mechanical process (e.g., relaxation and frequent use of flat iron).
Once this difference is understood, it is time to choose the most appropriate products and methods and go for treatment. Next, check out the Extraordinary Beauty tips on how to moisturize dry hair!
Homemade Hydration For Dry Hair:
How To Do It, And What Is The Ideal Routine
If you have dry hair, your homemade hair moisturizing ritual should be done, on average, twice a week. As this type of thread lacks the scalp’s oils, it is not recommended to wash your hair more than three times a week to avoid aggravating this characteristic.
The ritual always begins with the shampoo for dry hair. Usually rich in moisturizing components and vegetable oils to nourish the hair during cleaning and prevent dryness.
Do not apply the shampoo to the length. And ends are essential to care so that the strands do not get even drier. Apply only to the scalp and allow the foam to spread along the length during the rinse. Remember always to wash your hair with cold water, as hot water can also dry the hair.
The mask, which must be equally nutritious, can be applied after the shampoo with damp hair. To better absorb the threads’ treatment, it is recommended to divide the locks and make the application strand by strand.
After applying the hydration mask, it is worth heating the wires with a thermal cap or even a shower cap. A trick that enhances homemade hydration.
Homemade Hydration For Dry Curly Hair:
Coconut Oil Is An Ally In Combating Opacity
Coconut oil is a vegetable oil well known for its highly moisturizing and hydrating properties. And for those who have curly hair, this asset is a great ally when it comes to homemade hydration.
It is because curly and curly hair is the group that usually has the driest hair. After all, the strands’ spiral shape does not allow the scalp’s oils to slide along the length and ends.
Thus, treating a potent oil such as coconut oil is important to replenish. The oils that the threads do not have naturally and combat the threads’ opacity.
Fortunately, nowadays, it is no longer necessary to make mixtures because there are complete masks on the market with this ingredient for you to open and use.
Our suggestion for treatment with coconut oil is the Elseve Oil. Extraordinary Curls line has shampoo, conditioner, moisturizing mask, and combing cream enriched with this asset to restore the curls’ shine from the beginning to the end of the care routine.
The homemade moisturizing ritual for curly and frizzy hair should be even more careful, as these strands tend to be more fragile – precisely because they are dehydrated – and tend to create knots if not handled correctly during washing.
For the result of the treatment to last longer, avoid using the dryer and let the hair dry naturally. If this is not possible, use a thermally protected oil before drying.
Another tip for those who have dry curly hair is to bet on the satin pillowcase, which causes less friction with the threads during the night and keeps the hair hydrated for longer.
Homemade Hydration For Smooth And Wavy Dry Hair:
Lighter Oils Regain Shine Without Weighing
Straight and wavy hair can also dry. Unlike curly and frizzy strands, the structure of these hair types allows the scalp’s natural oils to slide through the strands more easily.
However, some smooth and wavy ones have less oil production in the region, which leaves the strands dry and opaque.
For this reason, homemade hydration for straight hair must also be rich in oils to replace what the locks do not receive naturally.
However, as these hairs are thick, the tip is to bet on lighter oils not to overload the strands.
These oils are known for their ability to gently nourish dry hair and revitalize and restore the strands’ shine without making them heavy.
In the hydration ritual for homemade straight hair, it is worth investing in lighter vegetable oils not to weigh the strands.
Another tip for the hydration ritual for straight hair is not to overdo the application amount. And concentrate more on the ends, especially if you have thin hair.
As with curly, straight, and wavy hair must remember to protect the hairs before using heat tools, mainly flat iron and Babyliss, in addition to reducing usage, if possible.
If you follow all the hydration tips for dry hair and do not see a result after at least four weeks of treatment, it may be that your hair is damaged and symptoms of dryness. In such cases, it is worth changing the routine for a homemade moisturizing ritual for dry hair.
