Why do hair get dry?
Most often, the hair lacks moisturecause of improper care. Regular staining with paints, which contain ammonia and ammonia-like compounds, weaken hair and overdry it. Do not believe the tricks of advertisers who promise you "innovative hair dye without ammonia." In such a dye, ammonium hydroxide is used as a color fixer, which is not inferior to ammonia by its harmfulness. Shampoo designed for oily hair and daily washing will dry even the hair that once suffered from increased activity of the sebaceous glands of the scalp. No matter how quickly your hair gets dirty, it's better to take a dry shampoo than wash your hair every day. Chlorinated water also does not benefit your locks, it makes hair stiff and thin. Love for styling products based on alcohol, forceps, stylers and ironing affects the condition of the locks not in the best way. High temperatures overdry the core of the hair, increase its porosity and contribute to the appearance of split ends. Often, the hair becomes dry after a trip to a seaside resort. This happens for the same reason as during drying with a hair dryer - the sun "evaporates" all the life-giving moisture from them. Cold is no less dangerous - if you like to flaunt without a hat even in very severe frost, be prepared for the fact that your hair will become dry and brittle. Low temperature narrows the blood vessels supplying follicles with blood - the locks lack elementary nutrients. Dry hair can go to you "by inheritance." If your mom or grandmother suffered from tightness and sensitivity of the scalp, it's no wonder that you will also be very worried because of the dryness. In this case, you will have to constantly maintain the condition of the hair at the proper level, regardless of the frequency of staining, water hardness and other risk factors. Improper nutrition weakens the hair, causing increased fragility. If you like spicy and fatty foods, most likely, in the near future you will become the owner of dandruff. And dandruff is a dangerous fungal disease, threatening you not only with dryness, but with hair loss.
