Ask anyone with dry hair and they’ll tell you having straw-like strands is the worst. But women with limp, oily locks would beg to differ. Whichever end of the spectrum your hair falls on, there are ways to work with what you’ve got.
Constant exposure to the sun, chemical processes and styling itself can leave your hair dry and damaged. Colored hair is especially susceptible to breakage, so weekly deep conditioning is a must to nourish parched strands. Shampooing less often is also wise, but make sure to use a protein-rich conditioner when you do wash.
On the other hand, excessive heat can send oil production into overdrive since the body tends to produce more sebum as the temperature rises. This accumulation of oil combined with residue from styling products can leave hair flat and limp. Experts suggest using an oil-free shampoo on a daily basis to remove excess buildup and oil, massaging it into the roots and leaving it on for three to five minutes before rinsing.
