How to Rescue Dry Hair

Is your hair feeling dry and brittle and looking lackluster? Dry hair naturally struggles to retain moisture, so we recommend following a tailored hair care routine and using a dry hair treatment to provide a much-needed boost of hydration. Keep reading to learn what causes dry hair and discover the best hair care routine to help combat dryness.

What Causes Dry Hair?

There are a number of factors that can affect the hair’s hydration levels. Dry hair can be caused by:

  • Excessive hair washing, which can strip away the natural oils that keep the scalp and strands hydrated
  • Immoderate sun exposure and no protection from UV light
  • Heated styling tool and heat-related damage
  • Abrasive hair brushing, especially when wet

When hair is dry or damaged, it’s more prone to breakages and split ends, and often looks dull, thin and unhealthy.

How to Fix Dry Hair

In addition to regular trims, a targeted hair care routine can help to revitalise dry hair, providing a burst of moisture to support soft, shiny results.

Step 1: Use a Moisturising Shampoo

Washing the hair with a deeply nourishing shampoo is the best place to start your dry hair care routine. High quality products with effective ingredients play a key role here.

The Grow Me Shampoo from Watermans is formulated with a range of vitamins and antioxidants (including Calcium Pantothenate that converts into Vitamin B5) to moisturise the scalp, revitalise thirsty hair and promote strong, healthy growth.

Watermans Tip: Don’t apply shampoo directly onto the hair. Lather between your palms first, then spread and massage evenly through the hair.

Step 2: Condition Well

After shampooing, it’s important to condition the hair well to inject more moisture through the lengths and ends. Remember, don’t apply conditioner directly to the top of the head, as this will make the hair look greasy and flat.

Our deeply moisturising conditioner, Condition Me, is rich in hydrating, repairing and replenishing ingredients like Niacinamide, Shea Butter, and Cholesterol that help to moisturise dry hair and combat damage.

Step 3: Apply a Hair Mask

A weekly ritual that many skip, applying a hair mask is a great way to hydrate dry hair.

A deep, conditioning hair mask, like our Masque Me, offers a luxurious dry hair treatment, working to nourish, hydrate and repair. It’s formulated with a blend of restorative ingredients that offer the hydrating boost dry hair needs, providing moisture, improving texture and controlling split ends.

Whether applied for 10-minutes or as an overnight dry hair treatment, hair will be left looking moisturised and glossy.

Step 4: If Styling Using Heat, Protect Hair

Heat damage is one of the main causes of dry hair, whether that be from heated styling tools or UV rays. So, when styling with heated tools, be sure to protect your hair with a heat protection spray to avoid damage.

Our Protect Me heat protection spray contains a unique blend of natural ingredients, including Lupine Protein, Rosemary and Coconut Oil, to not only help protect the hair and prevent dryness, but minimize frizz, split ends and moisture loss too.

Step 5: Take Hair Vitamins

Looking for an added boost to your hair care routine? Our Grow Pro Hair Vitamins are made from 100% natural ingredients to support healthy hair, nails and skin.

Take just 2 capsules a day in conjunction with a tailored dry hair care routine to help repair damage and combat dryness.
