What causes dry hair?

Recognizing these causes of dry hair is the crucial first step towards reclaiming your hair's natural health and lustrous shine. "Why is my hair so dry?" is a common lament for many of us and several factors contribute to this issue:


Genetics can predispose some to dry hair.


Environmental conditions, like dry climates or cold weather, can rob your locks of essential moisture.


Everyday practices, such as heat styling, can cause damage and dryness by stripping your hair of its natural oils.


Harsh hair products containing sulfates and parabens can leave your hair parched and vulnerable.


Now that we've identified the potential culprits behind your dry hair, let's pivot to the solutions - actionable steps you can take to replenish moisture and restore your hair's health and vitality.


How to Fix Dry Hair?

While it may be hard to combat dry hair through Genetics or Environmental conditions, adapting your everyday practices and selecting the proper hair care products is an easy fix with the right information. So without further due, let's look into 5 quick and simple tips and tricks to help you fix your dry hair.

1. Adapt your Everyday Practices

Our daily habits can have a surprising impact on our hair's health and moisture levels. While one crucial aspect is nutrition (yes, your hair's well-being is deeply linked to what you eat), hair maintenance habits also play a role in managing dryness. Over-brushing or harsh brushing can cause breakage and further dryness, so opt for a gentle, wide-toothed comb.


Also be mindful about washing, too much can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it parched. Aim for washing your hair just two to three times per week, and ensure all product residue is thoroughly rinsed out. When it comes to heat styling, this can be one of the quickest ways to dry out your hair. If you can't part with your styling tools, at least guard your locks against heat damage with the Food for Soft Multi-Use Hair Oil Serum, which offers a shield against heat, so you can style with confidence and care.


2. Choose the Right Hair Care Products

Using the right hair care products is a game-changer for combating dry hair. Your routine should include products specifically designed for dry hair that help restore moisture balance and vital nutrients. Also, look for ingredients like avocado oil, antioxidants, or hyaluronic acid, a potent humectant celebrated for its moisture-boosting properties, can significantly improve hair hydration.

Our Food for Soft collection was specifically built to gently cleanse and treat dry hair without any sulfates. This 4-step regimen was formulated with the most powerful ingredients, including Avocado Oil and Hyaluronic Acid.


3. Gently Cleanse your Hair

The foundation of any hair care routine is proper cleansing, which not only means looking for products that have the right ingredients, but also means looking for products that exclude harmful ingredients.

Our advice here is simple, use for sulfate-free products. Why? Sulfates might give a satisfying lather, but they can also be too harsh, stripping away essential natural oils. That is why we designed a gentle yet effective shampoo, the Food for Soft Hydrating Shampoo - specifically designed to gently cleanse while restoring essential moisture to your dry locks, and without any sulfates.

Also, taking care of dry hair requires a gentle touch, especially during the cleansing process. Think of it like massaging delicate silk; use a gentle approach. Start by softly massaging your scalp while shampooing. This stimulates blood circulation, promotes healthy hair growth, and helps distribute the shampoo evenly. But, don't go overboard with the scrubbing, as it can cause breakage and further dryness.


4. Hydration is Key

Hydration is a critical element in your hair care journey, especially when combatting dryness. It's like your hair's thirst-quenching oasis amidst a desert of dryness. Think of your conditioner as the replenishing oasis' water source. Within the Food for Soft regimen, we placed our own oasis, the Detangling Hydrating Conditioner; made with intense nourishment in mind, this conditioner targets areas of your hair that are most parched, primarily the mid-lengths to ends. Using it regularly won't only hydrate your hair but also smoothen it out by detangling it and making it easier to manage.

Taking hydration to the next level, we have a special treat for dry and porous hair - the Food for Soft Rich Hydrating Treatment Mask. Consider this mask as an intense, moisture-packed feast for your thirsty hair strands. Use it once a week as a deep conditioning treatment, and for those with exceptionally dry hair, consider using it daily. You'll find it can give a robust moisture boost and much-needed nourishment, thereby improving your hair's overall health, texture, and shine.
Hydration truly is key, and these products help unlock the door to lustrous, vibrant hair.


5. Embrace the Power of Oils

Oils are potent little gems, carrying a deep nourishment, hydration, and protection that your hair craves. Let's consider avocado oil as an example - a star ingredient in the Food for Soft regimen. This nature-derived oil holds a unique ability to form a hydrophobic seal over your hair strands, acting as a barrier against moisture loss.

Incorporating the Food for Soft Multi-Use Hair Oil Serum into your routine allows you to unlock these benefits effortlessly. In addition, it has heat-protecting characteristics that will protect your hair from the harmful effects of heating tools. A few drops applied to wet or dry hair work wonders, especially when focused on the ends where dryness is most apparent. Not only does it seal in moisture, but it also imparts a noticeable shine. It's not just about embracing the power of oils; it's about welcoming a comprehensive solution for your dry hair.

In conclusion, your journey to reviving dry, lifeless hair doesn't have to be a daunting one. The first step is gaining an understanding of what causes dryness, and then adopting a tailored routine that targets these issues effectively. Remember to choose hair care products packed with nourishing ingredients and ensure your everyday practices are hair-friendly. From gentle cleansing to consistent hydration, and not forgetting the transformative power of oils, each step is crucial.

And while all these seem like a lot to remember, Matrix Professional's Food for Soft range simplifies this journey for you. With its Hydrating Shampoo, Detangling Hydrating Conditioner, Rich Hydrating Treatment Mask, and Multi-Use Hair Oil Serum, the path to well-moisturized, healthy hair has never been clearer.
