How to treat dry hair

The first step to treating dry hair is distinguishing it from damaged hair (they’re easy to confuse). Is your hair lacking smoothness and shine? Is it unmanageable, frizzy and feeling dried out? Is it thick or curly? Answered yes to most of the above? Then you probably have dry hair. Treatment for dry hair is quite simple actually – it doesn’t make enough hair-conditioning lipids, so replenishing them is key. Think of how to treat dry hair like looking after a delicate plant: give it all the nourishment it needs and it’ll flourish.
