Bathing with extra hot water or exposing your hair to excessive steam can all be reasons for your hair becoming drier. So here are some everyday haircare tips for dry hair to make your hair super healthy:

  • Start with a pre-shampoo hair routine which involves oiling your hair with a suitable hair oil. Oiling your hair will hydrate and nourish your hair and retain their moisture after washing. 
  • Use a good quality nourishing shampoo such as the Revlon Flex Normal to Dry Shampoo which is balanced for through cleansing and hydration. It is especially suitable for normal to dry hair and will make them bounce with a distinct shine. 
  • If you feel your hair may be excessively dry and damaged, the Flex Dry and Damaged shampoo will work wonders for you. It is especially formulated for nourishing dry and dull hair to provide the nutrients they need.

  • You can supplement this with a hair mask twice a week for better results. A rehydrating leave-in treatment or serum with hyaluronic acid will also do wonders for your hair and improve their health and texture.

Oily Hair:

If you have greasy hair, you must know the difficulty of washing your hair more often, wondering whether to oil your hair or follow the other hair care steps usually recommended for hair. Well, fret not, because we have come up with some professional tips for hair care routine for your oily hair.

  • Don't wash your hair too often or even less often than required! This is because washing your hair too often may strip your scalp of natural oils and cause your skin to produce more oil in the process. On the other hand, if you leave your oily hair unwashed for more time, the sebum secreted by your scalp will accumulate in your hair and may cause hair infections. So decide the frequency of washing as per the oiliness of your hair.
  • Wash your hair with shampoo carefully and in the right way to ensure all the shampoo applies thoroughly to your scalp and is also rinsed off properly. Avoid repeat cleansing of your hair.
  • Condition just the ends of your hair and use very little product as it can make your hair greasy soon.
  • Let your hair dry naturally rather than using blow dryers. This is because the heat tends to plump your hair cuticle, making it absorb more oil from the scalp and make your hair look oilier. [2]
