6 Reasons For Dry Hair & What To Do About It 

Too much washing can dry out hair by stripping away its oils. Reduce hair washing to 2-3 times per week, or as needed for your hair type and lifestyle.  



Blowers, straighteners, and curling irons can dry and destroy hair by damaging the cuticle. To minimise damage, use heat styling products sparingly and spray heat protectant before style.  

Excessive Heat Styling 

Dry, brittle hair can result from using harsh hair products like alcohol or chemicals. Choose mild, sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners for dry or damaged hair.  

Harsh Hair Products 

Outdoor elements including sun, wind, and pollution can dry and damage hair. Use a cap, UV protectant spray, or silk or satin scarf to cover your hair from severe winds and the sun.  

Environmental Factors 

Dry, unhealthy hair can result from a diet missing protein, vitamins, and minerals. To maintain hair health, consume a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats.  

Poor Diet 

Hypothyroidism, hormonal abnormalities, and seborrhoeic dermatitis can dry and damage hair. Consult a doctor if you feel a health issue is causing dry hair.
