Why Moisturizing Is Important For Hair?

Understanding Dry Hair

When your ends are splitting and the strands are coarse, you know you’ve landed in a pickle. But for the good part, you can reverse this mess with the right products and techniques. But knowing why you have dry hair in the first place, is key to fixing it. So, let’s go.

  • Hot Tools: If there’s a frequent rendezvous between your hair and those sizzling hot styling tools, you’ve actually styled your way into dryness.

  • Hair Dyes: Coloring hair is all fun and games until it is not. Bleaching treatments can make your hair brittle and prone to breakage.

  • Harsh Products: Using a paraben and sulfate free shampoo is truly the best thing you can do for your hair to avoid dryness.

  • Not Taking Hydration Seriously: If you’re lousy in the hydration department — skipping hair serum, hair mask or conditioner for dry hair — you're pretty much-inviting dryness.

Why Moisturizing Is Important For Hair?

If you want your hair to be bouncy, shiny and manageable, aka healthy, it needs to be moisturized. When it doesn’t get the TLC it deserves, your hair will start losing keratin and essential proteins, making it severely dry.

4 Hacks To Hydrate Dry Hair

The answer to how to moisturize dry hair is quite simple TBH. Because the easy peasy tricks that we’ve shared below will transform your hair, even before you know it!

1. Hair Serum FTW

Your shampoo day routine should not end with conditioner, but a hair serum. No matter what your hair texture is, skipping this step is like self-inviting trouble. We’ll tell you why.

A regular use of hair serum packs your hair with a ton of moisture, visible shine and makes them incredibly soft to touch. Our Argan Oil & Lavender Hair Serum for Frizz free hair tames frizz for up to 72 hours and makes your hair 3x stronger. It's lightweight and doesn’t weigh your hair down, which makes it ideal for all hair types, including straight/fine hair.

Bonus: It also offers up to 230° heat protection. So the next time you want to style your hair, you know which product to turn to.

2. Pick The Right Products

If you are still using hair products with parabens and sulfates, please stop punishing your hair. They are harsh surfactants and will only make your hair devoid of any shine and strength in the long run. Invest in a high quality sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to restore all the lost moisture and love back into your hair. Luckily, you do not have to go hunting for the best shampoo for dry hair, because we have something for each hair type. Our shampoos and conditioners understand your hair’s needs and deliver the exact results that you were hoping for.

3. Regular Hair Oiling

Today, as the world has finally woken up to the benefits of hair oiling, as Indians, we must make the best use of the home-ground advantage. Hair oiling finds its roots in Ayurveda and has been a continued practice for the past 5,000 years. There can be no greater proof than this to convince you to regularly start oiling your hair. Our Onion, Black Seed Oil & Patchouli Hairfall Control Hair Oil is everything you can ask for (no exaggeration here). It is packed with growth-inducing and deep-conditioning ingredients that help reduce hair fall and nourish your hair at the same time.

4. Weekly Hair Masking

If there’s anything that is probably missing from your routine, it is a luxuriously nourishing hair mask for dry hair. Our Argan Oil & Lavender, Paraben Free Smooth & Serene Hair Mask is quite literally the bridge between dry and fabulous hair! It rightfully deserves all your brownie points as this 2-minute miracle mask offers up to 2x smoothness for frizz-free hair. With a blend of potent plant-based detanglers, we think you’ll be healthily addicted to the unmatched results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:1 How can I tell if my hair is lacking proper hydration?

A. If you notice any/all of these, then your hair is in serious need of hydration: easily tangles when wet, split ends, coarse to touch, frizzy, breakage and dullness.

Q:2 How does diet contribute to hair hydration?

A. Your hair needs a good amount of protein and fatty acids to stay healthy. If this requirement is not met, it causes your hair to become dry, brittle and prone to breakage.

Q:3 How often should I be conditioning my hair to help it stay hydrated?

A. You must always use a conditioner when you shampoo, which should be 1-2 times a week. If your hair feels extremely dry, you can use a conditioner every day (without shampooing) to add moisture to your hair.
