DIY Hair Treatment for Dry Hair

Singapore’s tropical climate can sometimes pose trouble to your hair. It may dry your hair and cause split ends. This is most true if you spend most of your time outdoors and you over shampoo. The good news is that all is not lost when it comes to your crowning glory. 

In fact, if you reside in Tampines, you can head over to a hair treatment salon in Tampines facility that is made up of highly trained personnel that can keep your hair shinier, softer, etc. Alternatively, you can also go for DIY hair treatments for dry hair. Some of the most notable ones are elaborated below.

Cleansing conditioner

Conventional shampoos are made up of sulfates and other chemicals that can clean the hair, but dry it out in the process and leave them lifeless. On top of these, some–due to their synthetic materials–may even cause hair loss. 

Instead of shampoo, use a cleansing conditioner. Go for one that utilizes natural oils that aid in cleansing and conditioning. With regular use and timely visits to a hair treatment salon, your hair is going to be clean and moisturized. 

Hair masks

Hair masks are deep conditioning agents that seal in moisture to fix dry hair. They are made up of appropriately high concentrations of oils, vitamins, and other naturally-sourced ingredients. You might mistaken them for conditioners, but they are different since they are thicker so that they are going to damp hair when applied. 

Protein-enhanced shampoo

Infusing protein into your hair is a great way to fix your dry hair. One of the most practical ways to achieve this is by using protein-enhanced shampoo. Aside from fixing split ends, it can also help you strengthen your strands and prevent deterioration. 

For best results, follow the directions on the package and do not overdo the whole process. 

Botanical oils

Botanical oils such as coconut, jojoba, olive, and almond have become a fad nowadays. In fact, many herald them as elixirs for dry, damaged hair. What makes them unique is that they work extremely well on heavy and thick hair. To use, dampen your hair with water, then cover them with any of the said oils. 

For best results, cover your hair with a shower cap for a deeper and more effective cleaning. Rinse the botanical oil with shampoo. 

Hot oil

Hot oil is a practical (but time-consuming) approach to fix dry hair and it also involves botanical oils. However, it should be performed with caution since it may damage your hair if done improperly. This is the reason why it is best to have it performed in a hair treatment salon, rather than the DIY way. 

But if you want to perform it the DIY way, heat oil, but make sure not to boil it. Massage the oil onto your hair until it reaches your scalp. Wrap your hair with a towel to retain the heat, then allow the oil to sit for about an hour to build up moisture. Shampoo and rinse afterwards. 

Summing up

On the one hand, you can fix dry hair without going to a hair treatment salon. On the other hand, is this the right approach to achieve the crowning glory that you yearn for? Maybe, maybe not. But one thing is for sure, an individual who has undergone long hours of hair care training can deliver better results. 

That being said, consider opting for the DIY way approach if you are tight on budget, but do it with caution to achieve excellent results. If it is the other way around, having your hair done by a professional at a hair treatment salon is a better option that delivers endless results.
