How to get rid of dry skin FOR GOOD
Dry skin can really ruin a good hair day–it can ruin your day period. Between the itchiness and embarrassment, it can seem never-ending. Here are some quick tips to help you get rid of dry scalp for good.
- HYDRATE YOURSELF!
Many of don’t get enough water. One preventative measure to tackle that dry scalp is to get at least 8 full glasses of water each day. Your skin cannot be soft and healthy without water. This is one of the simplest ways to deal with dry scalp. It all starts here.
- INVESTIGATE THE SOURCE!
Is your dry skin cause by a certain product? Does it only occur during a particular time of year? Did it start after you began a new medication? Is this hereditary? Are you getting enough sleep? At first thought, these questions don’t seem to be directly related to dry scalp, but the answers will help guide you in the right direction. It is difficult to fix skin issues when we don’t know the root cause. Treating the symptoms without knowing how it happened can also make it worse. For instance, if your dry scalp is caused by a new medication and use a hair cream to rectify the issue, it could backfire, making the symptoms flare up even more.
- SHAMPOO LESS FREQUENTLY
If you already suffer from dry scalp, daily shampooing can only do more damage. Consult your beautician about the optimal frequency of shampooing for your specific hair type. Excessive shampooing can strip our natural moisture, making your scalp more susceptible to dryness. Moreover, many of us don’t properly rise out all of thes shampoo as we cleanse our scalp, so the dirt stays trapped between follicles, potential clogging pores and making our dry skin issues even more problematic.
- USE ESSENTIAL OILS
Essential oils are natural and healthy. They are a great way to keep your hair looking great. Each essential oil has a variety of uses. Tea tree oil helps with itchiness caused by dry skin. Peppermint is great for reactivating your skin cells. Lavender is a nice calming essential oil; one drop on your scalp right before bed can help you get a full night’s rest so that your scalp can benefit from a more healthy you. Juniper oil is great because not only does it give your hair a natural shine, but it also acts as an antiseptic which is helpful if you’ve been scratching a lot.
- VISIT THE SALON REGULARLY
This tip may be the most helpful since a professional can help you with all the tips listed above. Unless you’re an electrician, you wouldn’t try to rewire all the outlets in your home. You would call a licensed professional, right? Taking care of our hair is no different. Work with someone can help you get it right the first time.
Having a dry scalp is never fun. It can be embarrassing and frustrating. The best way to get rid of dry skin for good is to consult your beautician about your specific hair and scalp type. Your beautician can also recommend the best products and routine to keep your skin hydrated and healthy!
