Dry hair woes are a popular topic of conversation in salons, according to New Zealand hair guru and creator of Inverse David Roe: ‘Putting life into dry hair is the most common complaint I hear in the salon, particularly with highlighted and curly hair’ he says. ‘But there are simple, everyday ways to nourish your hair, naturally.' David Roe gives us some tricks to say goodbye to our dry hair.
Say no to over-washing! Two to three washes per week does the trick. Resist the urge to shampoo every day as this removes the hair’s natural oil, sebum AKA nature’s best conditioner. Over-washing your scalp strips its natural acid mantle (a protective combination of oil and sweat) leaving the skin vulnerable to bacteria and other nasties. Plus, too much washing puts your body’s oil production into overdrive, with the body producing more oil to replace what’s being taken away.
Massage, massage, massage. When you wash your hair give yourself a much-needed scalp massage while you’re at it. This is usually where the dirt is and helps to improve good blood circulation to the follicles. Avoid scrubbing the ends.
Hot water is not your friend. Wash your hair in lukewarm water. Hot water can weaken the hair and lead to breakage. Finish with a cold rinse to seal in moisture and lock the cuticle shut or if you can’t face the cold, try Inverse, the world’s first ice conditioner to take away the ice bucket challenge moment.
H2o is the way to go. After all it makes up the vast majority of our body. Find natural methods and products to add moisture to your hair, such as the chemical-free combination of Ice Mist and Inverse. A fine, lightweight spray, Ice Mist works in perfect harmony with the world’s first all natural ice conditioner.
