Dry Hair? Heres Some Tips!

I am one who constantly changes their hair colour and this really damages my hair, especially because I go blonde so often. I'm on the journey to blonde once again and I can already feel the effects of the bleach on my hair. Over the years I have adopted numerous techniques to help my dry hair, here are some:


1. Sleep with olive oil on the ends of your hair, however avoid your roots! I find this adds a nice coating to my hair that makes it more silky and healthy looking. Make sure you wash out the oil properly though otherwise you could end up with really greasy hair!

2. Experiment with DIY hair masks. My favourite is olive oil and egg, this way your hair gets nourished and also the egg provides protein to your hair. I've also added banana as this provides potassium that helps with damage, however I find it so hard to wash out! Normally I use a blender to mix up ingredients but just mixing in a bowl also works.

3. Always use a moisturising conditioner! Obviously this helps with dry hair but also it controls the frizziness. I also like to use a deep conditioner at least twice a week - just sit with in in your hair for at least 20 minutes and voila! silky hair. Its even better if you sleep with it in over night!

4. Always use leave in conditioner or an oil. I love Argan Oil! Once again this really helps control  frizzy hair and makes it look healthier. If I don't put anything in my hair it gets so knotted!

5. This one is obvious but do not heat style your hair too often! At one point I straightened and backcombed my hair every day causing it to snap off and go to chin length, I had layers less than a cm long! I now tend to just heat style my hair at weekends and this has made such a difference.



Do you have any hair care tips?

  1. Great tips :) I find using heat protection products before I dry my hair and before I straight always helps and a weekly hair mask is a must! Macadamia Deep Repair Mask is absolutely AMAZING! x

  2. Good tips. I'd add if you do use heat, make sure you use lots of heat protective spray :) Also, I like to rub a little bit of conditioner into the ends of my hair before I get out of the shower and don't rinse! Plus changing up your shampoo/conditioner helps too.

  3. Growing up in a Greek family, we used olive oil for pretty much everything, so I thought it was just me who used it as a hair treatment ha. Balsamic vinegar is a pretty good at-home remedy, too :)
    I still haven't tried any Argan Oil, yet - bad blogger alert! - but I love the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil, and Umberto Giannini's Overnight Beauty Serum is pretty amazing, too xx

  4. I'm still yet to try sleeping with conditioner in and washing it out the next day, worried it'll be greasy and yucky! Will definitely have to try some of these tips as my hair is slightly damaged from bleached highlights years ago xx
