    So, you’re dealing with dry hair, but if your number one concern is “Why are ends of my hair so dry,” it’s important to make sure you take the right steps to effectively restore and replenish your strands.

    Brushing hair regularly is a great place to start. This may seem like an obvious thing to do, but not everyone realizes it. When you brush your hair regularly from the root to tip, this will help spread the oils on your head down to the mid-lengths and tips of your hair.

    Be gentle. 

    Do you find yourself often wondering “What can you do for dry hair,” or “Why does my hair feel dry?” This could be caused if you’re too rough with your hair. Being gentle on your strands is another essential tip that can help eliminate this problem.

    So many of us love curling or blow drying our hair, but giving your strands a much needed break does so much good. We know it may seem hard, but avoiding hot tools and allowing your hair to air dry for a committed period of time is one of the best ways to help repair your strands.

    When it comes to breakage and being rough with your hair, did you know those trendy high ponytails could be doing more harm than good? Tying your hair up in a tight ponytail is another factor that leads to breakage. This happens where the elastic is wrapped around your hair, especially if the hair is dry or fragile.

    So, we’ve finally got down to the bottom of your burning question: “Why is my hair dry?” By using the right wash and care system, replenishing techniques, and being gentle with your strands, you’ll be on your way to healthy-looking hair.
