There are a number of reasons for dry hair. Your hair cannot moisturise itself, and relies on oil from your scalp, and if this is also dry then your hair will suffer. Then there are things like bleaching and heat styling which can make your hair feel dry and brittle. Even things as simple as heating or air conditioning can be enough to contribute to your mane feeling dehydrated. With this in mind, we’ve put together a list of five of the best products to help replenish the moisture and repair your tresses.
It’s almost verging on being a cliche to begin a post about hair repair with an Olaplex product, but there’s a reason that these products are so popular. Olaplex No.7 Bonding Oil provides highly concentrated nourishment to help repair dry and damaged hair whilst improving manageability by minimising frizz and flyaways and providing heat protection up to 232°C. It works with the rest of the Olaplex range to seek out broken bonds in the hair that are caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage.
Colouring your hair can be a major cause of dryness, which is why L’Oreal Professionel have created this leave-in treatment milk, specifically for coloured hair. It’s a multi-benefit spray with 10 key benefits. It’s enriched with resveratrol and leaves coloured hair looking more radiant, and feeling soft and protected. It can also prevent colour fade for up to 8 weeks, which will also help to save you money in the long run.
This mask from Aromatherapy Associates is pretty remarkable, in the fact that it can be used on your hair, face and body. It combines pink clay with hydrating sweet almond oil and shea butter and gives you hair, skin and scalp that is deeply conditioned with impurities gently removed, leaving hair soft and healthy looking, with moisture retaining protection from environmental stressors.
This leave-in treatment from Color Wow is infused with coconut and bonds with hair to keep locks moisturised and protected. It contains a blend of fatty acids which bind with your hair to create a ‘lubricating film’ that mimics the moisturising, natural outer layer of hair that is often stripped away during colour processing. Coconut oil penetrates deep down to hydrate within the cortex for improved strength and flexibility.
One of the unfortunate effects of having dry hair is that you also often end up with split ends. While cutting your hair is the only way to permanently remove split hairs, GHD Advanced Split End Therapy is activated by the heat of your styler to help nourish and fortify damaged ends, leaving your hair feeling sleek, smooth and shiny for up to 10 washes. It contains advanced ingredients and technology to protect the hair and leaves hair feeling stronger and looking sleek and shinier.
