1. Dry & Coarse
symptoms: Lack of shine, smoothness Cause: Lack of lipids and moisture Due to the large surface area of individual hairs and the presence of fewer oil glands on the scalp than other areas of skin, hair can become dry. Add chemical treatment, urban pollution and sun exposure to the mix, and locks appear more crisp-like than caress-able. “Overexposure to any of these factors strips hair’s protective layer of its natural oils, causing layers to separate and peel away, leaving the hair weakened and dry,” explains Sainsbury.
In conjunction with daily hydrating products such as Moroccanoil Treatment or Moroccanoil Treatment Light for fine hair, Kingsley recommends using weekly an intensive pre-shampoo conditioner like Elasticizer, which he created for Audrey Hepburn, or Apivita Propoline Mask for a hydration boost.
