Top Reasons Your Hair is Dry and Won’t Retain Moisture

Do you find yourself swearing that you moisturize your hair religiously but still are suffering from dry, brittle hair? If so, you may want to read up and take some notes because you could be doing it all wrong!

1. You Shampoo, But Don’t Condition
This happens to plenty of women! Shampoo is meant to be a cleansing product that will remove dirt and grime from the hair but it’s critical that you follow up your ‘poo with a rinse-out conditioner. Better yet, once a week, give your hair some extra moisture by using a deep conditioner.

2. You’re Still Using A Shampoo That Contains Sulfate
Sulfates are one of the top ingredients in most drug store shampoos. They are extremely drying to your fragile hair and you should take all measures to stay away from them! At Authentically Branded, we offer a variety of sulfate free shampoos (along with other hair products) that won’t strip your hair of its natural oils. Our entire line is sulfate and paraben free so check it out!

3. There’s Too Much Product Buildup In Your Hair
All products eventually build up on your hair so without a good shampoo, you aren’t removing them and moisture will not be able to penetrate the hair shaft. Hair that has a lot of product build up will tend to tangle and mat. Use a good, cleansing shampoo at least once per week to remove any of this build up.

4. You’re Not Paying Extra Attention to the Ends of Your Hair
The ends of your hair are going to be the driest, oldest, and most fragile parts of your hair. It’s very important to place a moisturizer directly at the ends of the hair shaft and then seal in the moisture with a good oil, such as Authentically Branded’s All Natural Treatment Oil.

So, what do you think? Were there tips above that you have been skipping, possibly leaving you with dry, brittle hair? Let us know on our Facebook page. We love hearing from you!
