How to Keep Your Locks Hydrated?
I used to hold myself responsible for my dry, weak, dehydrated hair until I realized the effect of weather on our hair. Cold, harsh, and dry weather of Alberta can take out all moisture from our hair and unlike warm weather that makes our scalp oily. Dry weather can cause dandruff, flakey scalp, and dehydrated hair roots. It means that to prevent such bad hair and scalp conditions we need to switch to more hydrating and nourishing products when it’s dry and harsh outside. Consistent styling can damage our hair and dry out its natural moisture. So, there’s much more to understand about dry hair. For this purpose, you have to take matters into your own hands to keep your locks healthy!
Check out a few of our tips focusing on how to moisturize hair and recover the natural softness of dry hair:
Always keep your scalp and hair clean:
The first step to moisturizing locks starts with your shampoo. Choose a shampoo that promises nourishment, apply and massage from root to tip, then rinse thoroughly to get rid of any residue - since your scalp can get irritated in case there is leftover shampoo.
Increase your water intake:
Your body needs so much water to maintain the fluid balance in your body and properly lubricate your organs and muscles. Drinking at least 100 ounces of water a day will not only detoxify your body but also helps in deep hydration of your skin and hair.
Adding healthy protein to your diet is essential in keeping your locks healthy and nurtured. A healthy diet, including organic tofu, soybean, lentils, chickpeas, nuts, organic meat and eggs, contains vitamins, essential nutrients, and most importantly proteins. These protein-rich supplements act as a source of biotin and keratins that are responsible for the health and growth of your hair.
