Atlanta Hair Salon Tips for Dry Hair

Here are a few tips that our hair salon in Atlanta recommends:

  • If your hair is dry or damaged, try to avoid using hair care products with alcohol or harsh lather agents such as sulfates.  Alcohol, sulfates, and other chemicals can be very damaging to your hair and can strip your hair's natural oils, causing it to feel dry.  We can recommend gentle cleansing products when you visit our salon that will moisturize you hair and leave it feeling hydrated instead of dry and brittle.

  • Always use conditioner.  If your scalp is oily, but your hair is dry, you can condition the lower half of your hair and avoid putting conditioner on your scalp.  Leave in conditioner is an excellent option if you have very dry or damaged hair.

  • If you swim, protect your hair from chlorine by wetting your hair and applying a small amount of conditioner to your hair before getting in the pool.  Your hair will absorb the conditioner instead of the chlorine.  Or wear a swimming cap.  Make sure that you shampoo and condition your hair after you swim to remove all of the chlorine and pool chemicals which can damage your hair.

  • Heat styling can damage your hair.  If you blowdry your hair use the cool setting.  Keep the blowdryer moving as you use it and let your hair air dry if possible.  Try to limit the use of flat irons and curling irons whenever possible.  Never use a flat iron or curling iron on damp or wet hair as this can also cause damage to the hair cuticle.

  • Hot water can also dry your hair and cause scalp irritation.  Use warm water for showers and cool water to rinse your hair after a shampoo.
