Five Cures for Dry, Thirsty Hair and the Shampoo for You

Have you tried everything and your hair is still dry? Do your ends split and break? It’s time to take action. A combination of small lifestyle changes and products made to help repair dry hair can get your hair back on the road to recovery.


1. Watch what you eat.

Load up on antioxidant-rich fruits like blueberries, vegetables, and foods high in omega-3 fatty acids are beneficial to keeping skin, scalp, and hair healthy. Consider taking a multi-vitamin but always consult a medical professional before taking supplements.


2. Get to the root of the problem.

Is your scalp healthy? If your hair is dry, chances are you’ve been neglecting your scalp. Try a scalp treatment to replenish depleted nutrients. Scalp treatments are designed to combat dryness, itchiness, and promote hair growth. When you’re in the shower, always massage your scalp for a minute or two. This will stimulate the follicles and encourage hair health.

3. Start with a clean slate.

Styling products, shampoo and pollutants in the air can cause build up that clogs hair follicles, impairing growth and making hair look dull and lifeless. A clarifying shampoo once a week can help your hair look healthier fast.


4. Shampoo matters.

Not all shampoos are the same. If your hair is dry, you need a hard-working daily shampoo that will nourish and hydrate your hair without weighing it down. Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Moisturizing Lather Shampoo features an exclusive KeraTriplex® blend that replenishes every strand for healthy-looking hair, while awapuhi extract balances moisture for manageability and shine. It’s also color safe, 100% sulfate-free, so you don’t have to worry about harsh chemicals drying your hair out even more.


5. Feed your hair.

For really dry hair, try a hydrating hair mask once a week until your hair is feeling back to normal. This will help strengthen your hair and prevent future breakage. We recommend Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Keratin Intensive Treatment. We love how it transforms weak, broken, and brittle strands into pillars of strength and protects from further damage.
