What is dry, damaged hair?
Dry hair results from a lack of sebum (natural oil) which causes the hair to dry out at a cellular level. If you suffer from dry skin, it follows that your hair can be dry, too. Because a lack of moisture makes the hair less elastic and resilient, it is more prone to breakage and damage and will only stretch half as much as normal hair. When hair is damaged, the cuticle cells (which lie flat and look shiny in healthy hair) are uneven and raised and do not reflect light. Hair that's dry is often damaged (and vice versa), usually looks dull and lifeless and is prone to frizziness and split ends.
What to avoid if you have dry, damaged hair
The repeated use of heated styling tools, such as blow-dryers, straightening irons, rollers and tongs, strips the hair of its natural moisture and oils and leads to a head of damaged hair. If you need to use heated tools every day, protect your hair with a moisture-loaded leave-in conditioner or styling spray and stop styling when the hair is still slightly damp. Dry hair also needs more protection from the drying effects of the sun, chlorine, seawater and chemicals. If swimming or sunbathing, always use a spray-on hair protector or swimming cap. Rinse your hair thoroughly after swimming as chlorine can dry the hair out even further. If you colour your hair, avoid permanent dyes and bleaching processes that also damage the cuticles.
How to style dry, damaged hair
The key to styling dry, damaged hair is to ensure that it retains enough moisture to prevent frizz. First of all, use a rich, condition-boosting shampoo and conditioner and give your scalp a daily massage to improve circulation and stimulate the sebaceous glands which produce sebum, the body's own natural hair conditioner. If possible, let your hair dry as naturally as possible. If you do need to use a dryer, use a low setting and temperature and protect against moisture loss with a silicone-based styling spray, serum or gel. Finally, smooth down damaged cuticles and tame flyaway ends with a few drops of serum stroked over the surface of your hair.
