Dry and Dull Hair Renewal

August 28, 2011

Dry and Dull Hair Renewal

It's the end of a hot summer, and for some of us, its been a hot, dry summer. Hair takes a beating from the sun and dry hair is dull. Here are three easy ideas to restore its life and shine.
  • Add moisture and shine to hair by conditioning dry hair between washings. Rub a dot of conditioner between the hands to warm it and massage through the hair overall or just on dry ends. Abbey conditioners contain essential oils and botanicals that are scalp healthy, which means healthy growth, so use your fingertips to massage conditioner into the scalp. Pay particular attention to any areas where growth is sparse or damaged.
  • Give yourself a home oil treatment. (See Sunburned Hair Repair for more detailed oil conditioning instructions.) Apply warmed coconut or olive oil (imagine all those beautiful Hawaiian or Italian women with gleaming black hair) to dry tresses. Wrap in warm towel for 30-60 minutes. Shampoo as usual. Apply leave-in conditioner to seal in moisture. Note: Work shampoo through hair before applying water to easily remove oil.
  • Avoid overwashing hair. Unless your hair is very oily, daily washing removes natural oils.
