How to Moisturize Dry Hair - A Step-by-Step Guide

< All Posts

Dry hair can be a big nuisance, especially during the wintertime. Frizz, split ends, and breakage are just a few of the problems that can occur when you have dry hair, so you might feel desperate to add some moisture to your locks. However, there is definitely a right and wrong way to moisturize dry hair, so you should be careful when switching up your hair care routine.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to help moisturize dry hair:

1. Reduce Your Shampooing Frequency

Over-shampooing is one of the most common causes of dry hair. If you shampoo your hair every day, you'll probably notice that your hair feels dull or brittle. Cutting down on shampooing is a great way to help preserve moisture and reduce dryness and flakiness on your scalp.

The exact number of times per week you should wash your hair depends on your hair type and your overall hair care routine. For most people, shampooing twice per week is enough to keep the hair feeling clean without drying it out.

2. Use a Moisturizing Shampoo

A hydrating shampoo can be your first line of defense against dry hair. Products like Wellphoria's Nourishing CBD-Infused Shampoo  include natural oils and other ingredients that help your hair feel stronger and replenish moisture. Although you still should not use these shampoos every day, washing your hair a couple of times per week with moisturizing shampoo can make a big difference in your hair's condition.

3. Condition Your Hair Daily

Most conditioners are a great source of moisture for your hair. Use conditioner after shampooing and also try using conditioner on the shampoo off-days to keep your hair looking and feeling great. Apply the product from the mid-lengths of your hair to the ends, and carefully rake your fingers through your hair so that it evenly coats every strand.

You can also deep-condition your hair overnight for extra moisture. Apply a leave-in conditioner or a moisturizing hair mask to your hair, wrap it up in a shower cap or an old T-shirt, and rinse it out in the morning.

4. Protect Your Hair Before Heat Styling

While heat is a helpful tool when styling your hair, it can do serious damage over time. To retain the moisture in your hair, apply a heat-protective product before using your blow dryer. We recommend Better Natured’s Heat Styling Lotion for this! Better yet, you can cut down on the amount of heat styling you do and embrace your hair's natural texture.

5. Be Careful in Harsh Weather

If you live in an area that experiences cold or dry weather, try to protect your hair and scalp before going outside. You don't want all of the hard work you put into your hair care routine to go to waste by exposing your hair to harsh weather conditions. Wear a hat or headscarf to protect your hair and stay warm in the winter, or apply a UV protectant before you go out in the hot sun.

Everyone's hair care needs are different, so you might have to try out a few products or routines before you find the solution for your dry hair. What's most important is that you protect your hair from damage and apply plenty of moisture. Once you find the routine that works for you, you'll be amazed at how much better your hair looks and feels.
