Treating dry and frizzy hair with the right shampoo
Dry, frizzy hair can be caused by several factors, including genetics, hormones, weather conditions, and the use of certain products.
The first step to preventing dry and frizzy hair is identifying the cause. If it's due to the weather or hormone changes, it is impossible to prevent it. However, there are ways to fix this problem if it's due to genetics or product use.
Causes of frizzy and dry hair
Excessive hair washing
The natural oils, also called sebum, in your hair can deplete if you overwash them. This causes your hair to be dry and frizzy. If you have an oily scalp and need to wash your hair daily, we recommend switching to a mild, chemical-free shampoo. If you are among the fortunate few who don't have an oily scalp, wash your hair twice or three times per week.
Shampoo and conditioner that is not appropriate for your hair type.
It is critical to use shampoo and conditioner suitable for your hair type. If you have dry hair, you should use a moisturizing formula. However, if you have an oily scalp, avoid oil-based or deep moisturizing formulas because they can cause sebum buildup, resulting in hair damage, frizz, and hair loss.
Harsh styling products and tools can cause frizz and dry hair. Blow drying your hair or using heat regularly can cause stress and strip all the natural oils from your hair, leaving it dull and dry.
Frizz and dry hair can be caused by a lack of moisture and humidity in the hair and by frequent temperature changes (such as cold indoors and hot outdoors).
Frizzy hair, hair thinning, or changes in the texture of your hair can be caused by puberty, pregnancy, menopause, thyroid, and other conditions. Your hair may be dry and dull because of this. It is best to eat healthily and treat your hair gently during this time.
Some medications may have side effects that drastically change the texture of your hair; you may have an oily scalp or dry, lifeless hair.
Treating Dry and Frizzy Hair with the Right Shampoo
Use the proper shampoo for dry and frizzy hair.
Knowing your hair type is essential to choose a shampoo and conditioner. Finding the best shampoo for your hair is half the battle. If you have difficulty finding the right product, we recommend consulting your hairstylist.
Use hydrating and moisturizing shampoos and conditioners.
Using a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner will aid in the restoration of moisture in your hair. You can also try a deep conditioning treatment once or twice a week. This will help restore moisture to your hair, making it less frizzy. Faith and Patience has a 100% natural Camel Milk shampoo, which helps retain the moisture in your hair, making it stronger from inside and out.
Change to a chemical-free shampoo.
Shampoos and conditioners with harsh chemicals and ingredients can strip your hair of its natural oils, affecting its texture and quality. Using a natural or organic shampoo for dry and frizzy hair can help restore moisture to your hair while improving its texture and quality.
Make use of keratin shampoo.
Keratin is the protein found in every strand of hair. Your hair is frequently stripped of this protein due to extensive styling or chemical treatments. A keratin shampoo can help by reinfusing keratin back into your hair, leaving it silky and smooth.
Other ways to treat dry and frizzy hair:
Make use of a silk pillowcase.
Silk can help to reduce friction, which causes frizzy hair and breakage. Cotton pillowcases, on the other hand, cause friction.
Use cold water to rinse your hair.
Showering with warm or cold water can keep your hair and skin from drying.
Make use of a microfiber towel.
Use a microfiber towel to dry your hair instead of a regular terry cloth because it is gentler on your hair and won't cause frizz by rubbing your hair's cuticles together.
Make use of hair serum.
Use a moisturizing hair serum to control flyaways and frizzy hair.
While traveling from one city to another, you may notice a change in the texture of your hair. The water conditions in each location differ, and it may take some time for your hair to adjust to this change. Using a chemical-free mild shampoo that is hydrating and deeply moisturizes your hair is always a good idea. Visit the Faith and Patience website to test out the Royal Camel Shampoo, which helps retain the moisture in your hair and rejuvenate your hair, making it stronger and silkier.
