Dry Hair? Three Ways to Add Moisture to your Locks without Getting a Cut!

We lead busy lives. Whether you have work, kids or both to tend, to finding the time to look after your yourself is often impossible. This lack of pampering can leave you feeling a bit drab, especially when it’s your hair that gets left by the wayside. When your hair looks, you feel good and it’s a huge confidence boost when you’re not having to walk around feeling embarrassed about the state of your hair!

These days I’m a full time blogger, but in a former life hair was my thing and I picked up a whole host of amazing tips and tricks along the way. So here my top three ways to add moisture to your locks and lose the dry ends for good!

Easy on the Heat

How often do you use hairdryers, straighteners and curling wands on your hair? If you’re anything like me, you use them a lot! They’re easy to use, convenient and often essential to achieve the style you want to rock. The thing is, all of this heat is a sure fire way to dry out your hair, leaving it looking dull and feeling brittle.

One of the best ways to replenish moisture is to use heated elements sparingly. If you’re not heading out somewhere special, try out the natural look or use hair pins to control your mane. The less heat on your hair the better to keeping it looking shiny and healthy!

Invest in Quality Products

I know hair products can be expensive, but more often than not you get what you pay for. There are so many good products on the market that are packed full of vitamins and moisture, they will help to put back all of the life that has been stripped out of your hair day to day.

Sometimes you have to go through a bit of trial and error to find what suits your hair type and which products fit into your routine. For example, if you blow dry your hair a lot, serums are good to smooth damaged cuticles. Or if you use straighteners a lot, heat defence sprays are a lifesaver!

A good conditioner is also a must if you want to put the moisture back into your hair. Tip: apply a generous amount the mid-lengths and ends of your hair to avoid the root area becoming greasy, wrap in a warm towel and leave for 10 – 15 minutes. Voila! You hair will feel soft and moisturised!

To Wash or not to Wash?

This point isn’t for everyone, some people just can’t get away without washing their hair on a daily basis. If you can avoid washing your hair too regularly though, you will reap the benefits. Washing your hair too often in warm water opens the cuticle and leaves it subject to damage when you’re brushing and styling. Washing less often can mean less damage!

Tip: if you do wash your hair often, give it a blast of cool water before you get out of the shower. This will help to close the cuticle and reduce damage when styling.

  1. I try really hard not to use heated implements too much on mine and every so often I put loads of coconut oil in it, sleep on it and then wash it out the next day which makes it so smooth! Thanks for linking up to the #bigpinklink

  2. Depending on the weather leads to me drying my hair or not with a dryer. During the summer I won’t use the dryer instead opting for it to dry naturally in the summer sun. #bigpinklink
