What to Do When Your Hair Looks Dry?
What do you do with dry, frizzy, or damaged hair? Are you beyond hope? Is it possible to revive your strands and achieve the hair of your dreams?
Well, we have good news, you CAN bring it back to life!
And to help you in your journey to healthy, luxurious, and shiny hair, we’ve put together some of the best ideas, practices, and products that will help restore, revitalize, and transform your hair from ‘hay’ to ‘heyyyyy!’.
CUT IT OUT
Split ends are often the biggest culprit when it comes to hair that looks and feels dry or damaged. Having your hair trimmed on a regular basis (most stylists recommend a trim every 4 to 6 weeks), can have long-lasting effects on your locks.
FIND THE RIGHT ONE
As much as we all want to treat ourselves to a nice cleansing wash every morning, we might actually be doing a disservice to our hair if we aren’t using the right products. Washing your hair on a daily basis with the wrong hair care products can strip your hair of Sebum, the natural oil that makes your hair shiny and easy to maintain. If your hair is feeling dry and damaged, try a gentle, paraben-free shampoo like REVIV3’s Prep Cleanser Shampoo. In addition to adding essential nutrients to your precious hair bulbs, PREP does not clog your follicles that can cause hair thinning over time.
WEAR A MASQUE
Using a great shampoo and conditioner like REVIV3’S Prime Moisture + Conditioner can make a world of difference when it comes to repairing your dry or damaged hair, but if you really want to tame those tresses you’ll want to add a masque treatment to your hair regimen. Try adding the Mend Deep Hair Repair Masque, once a week to your hair care regimen which can help hydrate and strengthen your hair, leaving it strengthened, nourished, and vibrant. Keeping to the theme of healthy follicles, Mend does not leave any product residues on your scalp which as we mentioned above can create clogging.
A leave-in treatment can help transform your hair from dry and brittle into the shiny and damage-free locks of your dreams! The Reviv3 Thermal Protector is both a leave-in conditioner and a thermal protector spray. Its active botanical ingredients, including walnut leaf extract and agave extract, will leave your hair smooth, shiny, and frizz-free. It also provides UV color protection to keep those colored locks vibrant and beautiful.
TURN THE HEAT DOWN
Blow drying, curling, or straightening your hair on a regular basis might be part of your daily hair routine, but it may also be contributing to the damage that is making your hair dry, brittle, and unmanageable. If you can, try to cut down on how often you use heat-styling tools. At the very least, make sure that you are keeping your blow dryer at least 6 inches away from your hair when you use it.
CHILL OUT AND SHINE ON
The idea of blasting yourself with cold water at the end of your shower might not sound very appealing, but it may have some benefits that are worth considering. When you rinse your hair in cool water, it removes excess product while still allowing your hair to retain the moisture and conditioner that it needs. It also closes the cuticles in your hair, which makes the light reflect off of your hair, resulting conditioned and shiny strands.
It may take some time, but with the proper maintenance and care, your dry hair can be renewed, restored, and REVIV3D!
