When it comes to our hair, there are a few facts that we all know to be true: strong, shiny hair is good, split ends are bad and dry, dull hair is a total disaster. The tricky thing about dried-out strands is that there’s usually a ton of contributing factors. Sun, sea, chlorine, pollution, chemicals, styling and over-washing all contribute to lackluster locks, not to mention stress, diet and genetics! With so many causes, where do we start? Thankfully help is at hand - we’ve rounded up some practical advice from our hair experts that will help transform your hair from dry and dull to soft and smooth, fast.
Skip a shampoo session, or two
First off, let’s start with the basics. When it comes to choosing a shampoo for dry and dull hair, opt for a gentle sulfate-free shampoo which will be kinder to dehydrated locks. Next, think about how often you use it. Almost all experts agree you shouldn’t shampoo hair more than 2 – 3 times a week. Why? Because too much washing strips your parched strands of the natural oils they badly need. In short, less washes equal healthier hair.
