17. Select medium temperature
Spending more money to buy quality hairdressing tools is okay. We really recommend it. Instead of being tempted to buy cheap products but the quality is not clear, it’s better to invest your money in tools that are guaranteed quality and have important features needed by your hair.
For example temperature control features. If you use a flat iron or hair dryer, make sure the device has a temperature regulator. Try heating it for about 5-7 minutes before using. As much as possible choose the lowest temperature or less than 148 degrees celsius, especially for dry and thin hair. If more than that, strands of hair will be faster toasted and damaged. You certainly do n’t want your already dry hair to get worse due to negligence when styling your hair? So start caring about your own hair as a first step as a way to deal with dry hair naturally.
18. Let the hair occasionally rest
When the hair is very dry, try taking a break from the styling tools . Let your hair breathe. Just store your hair without the need for any kind of styling. However, if you still want to experiment with hairstyles that don’t require the use of tools, for example braid hair styles, updo , or high ponytail.
19. Be diligent at cutting hair
As you go to the ends, your hair’s natural oils and hair’s nutrients from the scalp get less. Therefore, the lower part of the hair becomes more dry than the rest. Want to get a haircut but doubt what short haircut is right for you?
After knowing the ways to deal with dry hair naturally, you must also remember that everything starts with a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, do not forget to continue to consume nutritious food and drink enough water every day!
