Happy Asian woman with chemically treated pink hair

Is dry hair keeping you from living your best life? As dramatic as it may sound, having dry hair can be a huge hassle, not to mention irritating for the scalp. Dry hair occurs when the scalp doesn’t produce enough sebum to lubricate your hair strands. It’s the opposite of having oily hair, which is when the scalp produces too much oil. Dull, brittle, and frizzy hair are the most common symptoms of dryness (although these can also result in other drying habits).

Read on to find out more about dry hair and how to give it some much-needed moisture at home.

Causes of Dry Hair 

Dry scalp, sun exposure, salt water, harsh chemicals, and heat styling can cause dry hair.

Dry hair is mainly associated with a dry scalp, which leads to flaking that can resemble dandruff. However, it can have other causes. Age, for example, can cause dry hair since the scalp makes less oil as we grow older. Environmental conditions can also lead to dryness. A dry or hot climate, excessive sun exposure, wind exposure, and saltwater can also dry your hair.

Certain lifestyle habits can also lead to dry hair, such as washing your hair too often or using harsh products. Chemical treatments like hair coloring, straightening, perming, and bleaching can affect hair’s moisture content. So does frequent hairstyling with blow-dryers, curling irons, and flat irons.
