How to care for dry hair
Bright red or jet-black, sleek and straight or full of volume: there are endless ways to style our locks. But, dry and brittle hair might be getting in the way of achieving the look you love. Luckily, with a little extra care there’s nearly always a way to help hair look healthier – especially if you know the cause. So let’s get to the root of the dry hair problem once and for all – you’ll be on your way to achieving stronger, softer and shinier hair in no time.
Stay safe when you style.
We all know by now that styling can dry out and damage hair – but there's no need to step away from the styling tools. When you’re caring for dry hair, just add nourishing products to your washing routine, like Dove Daily Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. With every use, they strengthen and moisturize for 10x more resilient hair*. So, they’ll help to protect against heat damage and treat dryness all at once – giving you the best of both worlds

Avoid products not tailored to you.
Products for dry hair care are there for a reason: washing your hair too often can wash out natural oils, so if you're not using moisturizing products, dry hair can feel even drier. With the nourishing powers of our Daily Moisture range, you can wash your hair every day, and you'll still notice the difference – with shinier, stronger hair* that you can show off

Watch the weather.
UV rays can damage and dry your hair. But, with a good routine full of caring hair essentials that nourish dry hair, you can keep your locks looking and feeling their best, rain or shine
Back away from the hairbrush…
…When your hair is wet, that is. Brushing when it's wet can cause damage, especially to dry or brittle hair, so switch your hairbrush for a wide-toothed comb instead. Try combing your hair before rinsing out your conditioner, too – it will glide through with less chance of breakage
Amp up the care for the city.
If you live in the city, pollution probably plays a big role in how fresh your hair feels. So, if you’re a city dweller wondering how to get shiny hair, we’ve got you covered. A good shampoo can come in really handy to keep hair looking and smelling beautiful. Dove Daily Moisture Shampoo effectively cleanses your strands, as well as nourishing them, for all-in-one care
Turn to a trim.
Still feel like the ends of your hair need a bit of extra love? Split ends could be the reason why – and if you leave them, they can work their way up your strands and cause the rest of the hair to feel dry. There's really only one effective treatment for dry hair caused by split ends: book in with your stylist as soon as you can. With a few inches trimmed off, your hair will be back to its soft, smooth best
