Hair that looks and feels like it’s been through a drought is easier to treat than you might think.
Changes that occur inside your body like hormone levels and diet can affect the moisture and overall quality of your hair. To combat these internal changes, take iron and biotin supplements to boost oxygen levels in the scalp and enliven parched, brittle hair. Also, eat foods with adequate proteins and omega 3 fatty acids like salmon, flaxseeds and walnuts, which will feed the scalp where hair follicles are most receptive and active.

Your environment can also take a toll on your hair’s health—from scorching heat to rough winds, to air conditioners and radiators. Consider starting a change-of-seasons care regimen to keep hair looking its best; deep conditioning treatments and sleeping next to a humidifier are effective solutions.
The best way to battle dryness is to use products specifically formulated for the problem. Advanced Haircare Power Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner instantly provide a rush of moisture, leaving hair softer, shinier and better hydrated over time. With Hyaluronic, a water-attracting polymer, the formula infuses moisture deep into the fiber of the hair.
Skin gets its resilience and firmness from Hyaluronic Acid, so it’s no surprise that the scalp also craves it. Work the formula into your scalp, massaging in a circular motion to loosen any build-up and boost circulation.
Behind the Mask
Women with excessively dry hair should use a deep treatment once a week to regain moisture, strength and gloss. Leave-in treatments also help even out the hair’s porosity, reducing the need for styling and preventing further damage to the fragile shaft.
The Advanced Haircare Power Moisture Rush Mask is strong enough to reinvigorate coarse, dull hair. This rinse-out conditioning mask seals in lasting hydration without weighing the hair down. Its gel-like texture transforms dry, dehydrated hair into silky, soft and manageable strands.
Generously apply the mask with your hands then comb through the hair with a wide-toothed comb to distribute the formula evenly from root to tip. Intensify the moisture-boosting effects by covering treated hair with a hot towel or a shower cap, and let it penetrate your locks for 3-5 minutes. Rinse with cool water to seal in the benefits.
