Dry Natural Hair Needs Proper Hydration 

In order to fully solve your dry hair problem, you have to understand why it happens in the first place.

There is a difference between hydrating and moisturizing the hair. If you have chronically dry hair, it means your strands either are not being hydrated, not being kept moisturized--or both.

The term 'hydration' refers to the process of water molecules penetrating the hair shaft. Moisturizing the hair is the process of retaining that initial hydration. 

You can't moisturize hair that hasn't first been properly hydrated.

Washing the hair with a nourishing shampoo to remove dirt and product build-up allows your strands to fully absorb all the water it needs.

You can also spray the hair with a water-based conditioning spray to hydrate your strands. 

Your Conditioner Should Penetrate The Hair Strands

After the hair has been properly hydrated with water, retaining that moisture is key.

The best conditioners for dry hair should have nutrients like Baobab oil that contain fatty acids that both penetrate the hair, as well as coat the surface of the hair to lock moisture in. 

Intense Deep Conditioning Treatment

 It's All About Consistency 

Severely dry hair can be revitalized with intense hydration and nourishment.

The best conditioner for dry natural hair should be easy to apply, help detangle and smooth your hair, and restore its elasticity and shine.

By including this type of conditioner in a consistent hair regimen, you can banish dryness and embrace the beauty of your strands.
