Healthy, shiny, well moisturised hair can be difficult to achieve if you do not take proper care of it. Many general factors and daily activities can contribute to dull and dry hair such as regular exposure to the sun, chlorine from swimming, chemical processing and the use of blow dryers, hot rollers and curling irons. When hair starts to become dry it will lose its lustre and shine and becomes prone to split ends and breakage. Naturally, dry and damage hair looks bad and once it becomes damaged it can be difficult to nurture it back to health.
This is why adopting a regular hair care routine is also important. Just like the skin, the hair needs plenty of moisture, which can be added by applying special deep conditioners and shampoos and leaving them on the hair for twenty minutes or half an hour rather than washing them off straight away. If you apply a little heat, such as by sitting in a sauna for a few minutes, the benefits can be particularly noticeable.
Many popular shampoos and other hair care products contain harsh chemicals and soaps that actually strip the hair of its natural oils and leave it dull and dry. That is why it is best to make the switch to natural hair products that are designed to work with the hair and provide it with extra moisture and vitamins and minerals that it can use to really shine.
