Causes of Dry Hair
In contrast to healthy hair, which contains around ten percent moisture inside, dull, broken hair occurs when the sebum glands of the scalp produce too little oil to keep the tips moist.
The underactive sebum glands can have several causes: environmental influences such as UV rays or salt water, frequent dyeing and tinting, too much heat from blow-drying, straightening, etc., incorrect care or hormone fluctuations play a role. In winter, too, we often tend to have dry tips and a rough cuticle, because the change between cold air outside and warm heated air inside is particularly difficult for our hair. What we can do about it: Fill up our moisture deposits to protect the hair from drying out!
These products help with dry hair
So special products that donate a lot of moisture are ideal for dry hair. Surfactants, the foaming agents in shampoos, dry out the hair. For this reason, you should use products that contain as few or no classic surfactants as possible. In contrast, vegetable oils, keratin, panthenol and unsaturated fatty acids are good. Algae, marine minerals and aloe vera can also moisturize the hair.
Care leave-in products that do not need to be washed out are also advisable for dry hair. Here are ten ingenious products that intensively care for your hair and make it beautifully supple:
