Does your hair appear dull? Is it prone to dryness and easily loses its vibrancy? The key to keeping hair, especially textured hair hydrated, is layering products and applying them where the hair strand is most in need.
Environmental factors like changes in temperature and humidity all contribute to hair looking and feeling dry. Prevent this by protecting hair after every cleanse by using a leave-in moisturizer. Macadamia Professional Weightless Moisture Conditioning Mist will protect hair from everyday stressors, detangle and add moisture. Follow with a treatment oil from the mid-length to the ends.
Over-Washing can result in the removal of natural oils. If you need to wash hair daily be sure to use a hydrating mask for 10-20 minutes each week.
Prescription medication can affect hair strands and give them a dull appearance. Use a mild clarifying shampoo that still has a healthy amount of moisture and won't strip the hair. L'Anza KB2 Daily Clarifying Shampoo is a good one that gets rid of the surface build-up and helps normalize oil levels. Do this only on an as-needed basis, maybe once per week.
Over-processed hair needs extra special care. Mizani's Fiberfyl Fiber Strengthening Treatment acts as a strand-by-strand restorer. It is formulated with give percent filloxane, a molecule that penetrates the hair fiber as a liquid, transforms into a flexible solid that fills in weak areas with a protective shield to provide damage protection without hardening.
