Having dry, dehydrated hair is a common concern. But what exactly causes it? And how can you treat it? Here’s our complete guide to tackling lack of moisture in your locks, with input from the hair-care experts at Redken.

Causes & Signs of Dry & Dehydrated Hair

There are many factors that can cause your hair to become dry or dehydrated, from washing it too often to spending a lot of time in the sun. Excessive use of styling tools such as straighteners can also lead to thirsty tresses.

Dry, dehydrated hair does not retain enough moisture, leading to breakage, lack of lustre, and more*. Signs of hair dehydration include:

  • Dryness & frizz
  • Split ends
  • Breakage
  • Hair stops growing
  • Hair loss

Keeping Your Hair Moisturised – Top Tips

Making some changes in your hair-care routine can help bring back softness and health:

1. Avoid heat. If you’re unable to stop using heat on your hair, heat protection is a must. A heat protectant adds moisture to your hair while forming a protective barrier that reduces dehydration when heat is applied to your hair shafts.

2. Trim regularly. Stylists can simply ‘dust’ the ends to keep them un-frayed, healthy and hydrated. Make sure to visit the salon for regular trims.

3. Use a mask twice a week. Hair treatments provide stronger, more concentrated solutions compared to a regular conditioner, so they can be more effective at combating dry hair.

4. Use a leave-in treatment. A leave-in treatment like the One United protects and repairs your locks, adding shine and making it easier to style.

5. Use the right shampoo & conditioner. Opt for formulas which are specifically aimed at dry, dull hair to ensure moisture is not lost. The All Soft and All Soft Mega ranges make superb choices.
