why is my hair so dry?
Dry hair is one of the most common issues we all face, regardless of texture or length. From over-washing to heat damage, all sorts of things can leave strands looking and feeling dry. Even the weather can affect the moisture levels in your hair.
- Chemical treatments – perms and chemical straightening can damage the outer layer of the hair cuticle, contributing to dry hair.
- Heat damage – it’s important to protect your tresses from heat damage. Skipping the heat protectant and applying heat too often can lead to dry, dull-looking hair.
- Over-washing – you may be washing your hair too often. Over-washing often strips the hair of its softening and protective natural oils.
- Harsh products – using products that contain harsh cleansing agents can leave your hair dry and dehydrated. That’s why all amika haircare products are free from sulfates, parabens and phthalates.
