Caring for dry hair
Vigorously brushing hair is a common cause for raising the cuticle layer. Opt for finger combing or using a wide-toothed comb instead. For those who deal with tangled tresses, go easy on them. Forcefully trying to brush them out will only cause breakage and more damage. If you suffer from extremely dry hair, choose a mild shampoo and make deep conditioners and hair masks your best friends. They are formulated to penetrate the cuticle and nourish the core of your hair strands.
Some people even experiment with the concept of co-washing, which involves completely eliminating shampoo and using only conditioner during a wash. If you don’t want to go all the way, try increasing the intervals between washing your hair with shampoo and reducing the quantity of shampoo you apply per use.
