How healthy is your hair? Is it your crowning glory, or when you run your hands over it, does it feel rough, dry, and brittle?
Here are some definite signs that you need hair rehab, and fast!
Your hair is dull, dry, and frizzy
You have a lot of split ends
It sheds excessively
It lacks shine
It’s prone to tangling when it’s wet
When you get colour treatments, they fade quickly
It feels rough to the touch
It lacks elasticity and breaks easily
The biggest causes of rough, dry hair
A lack of nutrients and hormone problems can cause hair to feel rough and dry, but the main culprits are what we expose our hair to every day, like UV rays, chlorine, chemicals, and heat styling.
How to deal with rough, dry hair
Don’t use too much heat on your hair
Let it dry naturally when you can and use good products to help you embrace your natural texture. If you must use heat tools, use heat protection products without fail.
Use moisturising and nourishing shampoo, conditioner, and styling products
Our new Aveda cherry almond range is perfect for softening and restoring health and shine to rough, dry hair.
Cherry almond softening shampoo deeply and gently cleanses the hair without stripping its natural oils like some harsher products can. Cherry blossom and sweet almond oil restore the hair’s shine from roots to ends, leaving hair feeling super soft. Not only will your hair feel gorgeous, it will smell amazing too, thanks to the floral pure-fume™ aroma which comes from 38 flower and plant essences including tonka bean, certified organic orange and ylang ylang.
Cherry almond softening conditioner contains super softening and detangling ingredients like organic coconut oil and shea butter. It’s formulated with cherry blossom extract and sweet almond oil which restores softness and shine from the roots to ends and leaves hair glowing with health. It also has the same sweet and juicy scent as the shampoo, thanks to natural flower and plant essences.
Don’t brush your hair when it’s wet
This can put extra stress on already fragile hair. Use a wide tooth comb instead to gently detangle your hair.
Eat a healthy diet
Make sure you’re getting plenty of fruit and veg, as well as healthy fats and lean protein which will help keep your hair healthy. If you want some extra reassurance, invest in a good multivitamin too.
