How to improve the condition of dry hair?

Advice for your hair from a professional hairstylist.

 

Actually, your hair gets damaged, just like your face, hands, and legs. Before it's too late, I would like to introduce some ways to protect your hair from ultra-violet rays.

Everyday is a big mess, with your hairstyle not going the way you want it to. Dry hair that can't seem to be styled - this is something many ladies worry about. Even though I make sure to do treatment, and brush your hair everyday, why is my hair still so dry? This is a question that many people ask themselves. Here, I will provide some advice on the reason for your hair drying out, and some measures to improve your hair.

 

The treatment is not of proper quality, or the method used is wrong. 

t seems that there are many people who shampoo and condition their hair, but not treatment. Shampoo only protects the surface of your hair for a period of time with a layer of oil. If you want to deal with the damage to your hair, you would need "treatment," which supplies the inside of your hair with the necessary nutrients, moisture, and oil content. 

 

The way you use the treatment is also important. Sometimes, you can't get the desired result if you don't read the instructions written on the back of the treatment container properly and make sure that you're using it correctly. 

 

Some treatments contain a 'coating chemical' in their ingredients. This may clog your pores and cause hair loss and/or breakage. 

Art-Noise's SHA treatment does not use any coating chemical, so it replenishes the insides of your hair with sufficient nutrients, and guides your hair to the best condition. It has immediate effects even on highly damaged hair, and is durable. Compared to other treatments on the market, it will give your hair shine, resilience, and moisturised texture for a long time.

 

Sleeping without drying your hair properly.

Aren't there many of us who only towel-dry our hair after showering, leaving it to 'dry naturally?' When your hair is wet, the cuticles on the surface of your hair (the scale-like thing on the surface of your hair) are open.

In this state, the friction that is produced when the strands of your hair rub against each other, or against your pillow, will cause the cuticles to peel off. When this is repeated, the nutrients will leak out from inside your hair. 

Also, if your scalp doesn't dry properly, microorganisms will multiply, causing itchiness and a foul smell. Please try to dry your wet hair and scalp properly with a hairdryer from now on.

 

Are you using your hairdryer correctly? 

When drying your hair, putting heat on the same area for too long can cause your cuticles to peel off easily, and become a cause of damage to your hair. When using a hair dryer, I recommend holding it at a distance, and moving it around, and adjusting the temperature. 

 

What about the way you brush your hair?

A hair brush can pick out the dirt and dust that gets on your hair, and give your scalp a good amount of stimulation to improve blood circulation. However, using your brush in a way that puts too much stress on your scalp, such as using too much strength when untangling your hair, is not good.

Especially in winter, when the air is dry, your hair can be damaged by the static electricity. I recommend changing the type of brush or comb to materials like natural boar fur that deter static electricity depending on use and season.

 

For those who repeatedly straighten or colour their hair.

Everyday, the techniques used in straightening and colour are advancing. However, this does not mean that "no damage" is done to your hair and scalp. Firstly, the chemicals used in these processes tend to steal precious moisture from your hair and scalp. 

Furthermore, the high heat from the "straightening iron" used in the process of straightening can damage your cuticles, and cause it to peel off more easily. If you repeat these processes often, your hair will quickly turn dry.

While it varies across individuals, repeating straightening or colouring often will damage your hair more and more. Please go for these services while seeking advice from professionals, in order to maintain the condition of your hair. 

With dry hair, even your mood seems to be poor and your heart seems to become dry. By finding a solution that suits yourself and maintaining your shiny, silky hair, let's live everyday with a light heart.
