If you have dry hair, it might sometimes feel like there’s nothing in the world you can do to make your strands look (or feel) sleek and shiny. Why is it that while it seems like everyone else can get away with rocking the coolest hairstyles, when you try to do so, your hair just hangs there? Sure, you could reach for that baseball hat you have stashed in your room but why hide your hair if you don’t have to? Well, good news, you don't have to! With a little TLC and the right products for your hair type, including shampoo and conditioner formulated for dry hair, you can help restore your mane to its former lustrous glory. So, what are you waiting for? Add these six products (and a few helpful bonus tips) to your beauty routine pronto!
When it comes to shampoo, look for one that’s specifically designed for dry hair, like the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Shampoo, which is formulated with an oil blend to help rapidly propel hydration and leave hair with a lustrous touch. If you’d rather use a sulfate-free option or you have color-treated hair, try the L'Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Shampoo, which is formulated to be gentle on colored hair while also replenishing moisture levels. Whichever option you choose, massage the shampoo onto wet hair, lather, then rinse.
Regardless of your hair type, it’s important to use conditioner after shampooing to help add moisture to your locks. Stick with a conditioner that coordinates with your shampoo, either the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Conditioner or the L'Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Conditioner. After shampooing, apply your conditioner to wet hair, leave on for one to three minutes, then rinse. If you have dry hair but your roots tend to get oily, don’t skip the conditioner! Just focus the product on your lengths and ends.
If you have dry hair, your strands might benefit from receiving even more moisture after shampooing and conditioning. That’s where a leave-in product like an oil-in-cream can come in handy. The L'Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil-In-Cream is a lightweight yet nourishing cream-to-oil formula for dry hair that contains a system of oils and botanical extracts. After cleansing and conditioning with products from the same system, rub a dime-sized amount of the oil-in-cream in your hands and work it through the lengths of damp hair. You can also use a tiny bit on dry hair as a finishing touch for your hairstyle. Voila!
The right hair serum could be a game-changer for dry, lifeless hair. Looking for one to add to your routine? Try the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Treatment, which is again formulated with a system of oils and botanical extracts. After shampooing and conditioning with the Elvive Extraordinary Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, apply the treatment throughout the lengths of your hair, focusing on the ends, before styling to help control hair. You can also use it before shampooing to help protect and nourish your strands.
Cleansing balm is trending for a reason. It’s a one-step product that can provide the benefits of your entire hair care routine. The L'Oréal Paris EverPure Cleansing Balm for dry, damaged hair is a true multitasker—it has six benefits in one! It cleanses, conditions, treats, detangles, softens, and adds shine. Woah! To use, apply six to eight pumps and gently and evenly distribute it through your hair until your strands are fully saturated. Let it sit for three to five minutes, then rinse thoroughly. There’s no need to use a separate conditioner—you’re good to go!
When you have dry hair, the last thing you want is for it to feel even drier after a heat styling session. Put down your blow-dryer and curling iron and air dry your hair instead. To add volume to your locks, apply a mousse to wet hair. Use an egg-sized amount and flip your hair upside down to scrunch it and create more body.
Once or twice a week, take five to ten minutes to give your hair some extra TLC with a hydrating hair mask. Not only will your dry strands thank you for it, it’s also perfect for your self-care Sunday routine. Try the L'Oréal Paris EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask, which will help replenish hair’s hydration levels in just five minutes.
Now that you know what products to use if you have dry hair, it’s time to really upgrade your routine with three major hair care tips.
When you’re shampooing, massage the shampoo through your strands—don’t vigorously scrub. And afterward, don’t use a towel to wring out excess water. Instead, reach for a cotton T-shirt. A cotton T-shirt is gentler than a towel, and since your hair is more fragile when it’s wet, you want to avoid any unnecessary damage.
Like we said, toss your heat tools aside! Give your tresses some rest and embrace your natural texture by air drying your hair.
If your ends are looking particularly dry and ragged, it might be a good time to call your hairstylist. Why not use this as an opportunity to try a fun new hairstyle? Here are a few recommendations: 6 Best Layered Haircuts.
