Why does curly hair get dry?

The answer to this question is simpler than you might expect. Essentially, the ‘S’ shape of the hair strand makes it more difficult for the sebum produced naturally by the scalp to travel down the hair shift and keep the strands nourished and hydrated, leading to dryness. Dry hair can be more prone to snapping and breaking, due to its reduced elasticity, so let’s have a look at some of the best products to add moisture back into your strands…

Dry hair isn’t fun – you don’t need us to tell you that – but there are other ways to look after your hair too.

Before washing your hair, you could give yourself a pre-shampoo treatment by massaging our hair mask into your hair, or sleep on a satin pillowcase. They’re often a better choice than their cotton counterparts, which can cause dryness and frizz by sucking moisture from your hair. Or, you could try drying your hair with a microfibre towel – or even a t-shirt – so that you don’t produce as much friction against your hair shaft and cause frizz.
