Dry hair always gives its owners trouble. They look dull, break when combed, and their ends are split off regardless of care. Periodically, a feeling of tightness of the scalp appears, and with an improper selection of the shampoo and insufficient moisture, dandruff is also present. But the biggest problem with dry hair is the tendency to hair loss. Why does it arise and how to deal with it?
The main causes of dry hair loss
Frequent use of a hairdryer, ironing or curling iron
While normal hair easily tolerates meetings with styling and drying tools, dry curls perceive such contacts as a real torture. The more often you use an iron, hairdryer or curling iron, the more damage you do to your hair. Extremely deplorable results are seen by those who ignore protective equipment. The use of such compounds can reduce the load on the hair and protect them from high temperature.
Dry hair loss can be associated with both the frequency of their coloring and the type of color chosen. Too frequent staining, even with the use of high-quality delicate color, seriously damages the curls. They do not have time to recover and are increasingly filled with synthetic substances used in a modern color. If you choose a persistent color, the situation is even worse. They literally burn hair, so after several coloring, the hair looks unnatural, and it feels like straw to the touch.
The sun does not affect any type of hair. It dehydrates the curls and scalp, which creates a feeling of tightness and dryness. Contact with the sun is especially dangerous for owners of dry hair. A few walks under the ultra voliate rays without a hat and hair turn into a haystack: curls stick out in different directions, do not lend themselves to styling, they become stiff and the worst thing is that they fall out after every touch or combing.
Choosing Inappropriate Care Products
Yes, despite the huge assortment of shampoos, and masks, men and women still make this mistake. Most often, by the way, it is the owners and owners of dry hair who choose not their own funds. This is due to the fact that they believe that their hair type is normal and not dry. Hence all the problems.
The male part of the population usually prefers agents with menthol, which is not suitable for dry curls. With the constant use of such a shampoo or balm, a burning scalp and dandruff appear, and then the loss begins.
Doctors call this term the condition in which the body stays due to a lack of thyroid hormones. Violations in the work of this organ lead to the fact that the skin loses its natural elasticity, peels and is easily injured, and the hair becomes dry, dull and brittle.
If this condition is not noticed on time and the amount of hormones reaches a record low, hair loss may begin. Diagnose disorders in the thyroid gland by looking at the skin of the elbows. If it is too dry and has a grayish-earthy hue, you probably do not have enough hormones.
Vitamin B deficiency
This reason for dry hair loss can occur both for those who eat only fast food, and for those who carefully monitor their diet. If the foods you use contain too few B vitamins, over time they may be deficient in the body. The amount of vitamins can also be affected by the drugs you take. Some medications destroy certain vitamins, therefore, in fact, contribute to their deficiency.
What to do if the loss has already begun?
First, stop being nervous. Stress also causes loss of curls and one that does not depend on the type of hair. Secondly, do not delay to fix the problem. As soon as you notice that more hair is left on your comb, clothes, bedding, and floor than before, take action.
Get a complete medical examination
This will allow you to find out if there are diseases in your body that could cause hair loss, and to find out if your curls get enough vitamins. If doctors find abnormalities, they will prescribe medications that will help stabilize the situation. If the examination shows that you are absolutely healthy and do not need to take vitamins, you can look for a problem without worrying that it is somehow related to the condition of your internal organs.
Exposing your hair to high temperatures
We are talking about the use of a hairdryer, curling iron or ironing, and walking under the ruthless sun, and washing your hair with hot water. Despite the fact that all these effects seem to us different, they equally negatively affect the curls. Therefore, those who started dry hair loss, it is better to abandon all of the above.
When sunbathing, curls must be applied with special protective agents that will prevent the ultraviolet from drying out your hair. For additional protection, you can use a hat. In order not to harm your hair, it is better to choose models from natural fabrics that suit your size. A hat or cap should not pinch blood vessels and interfere with the nutrition of curls.
Use resistant color as little as possible
Women who take care of their hair have long since developed the most gentle scheme for coloring their hair. If necessary, change the color of curls, they use high-quality resistant color. As soon as overgrown roots become visible, they tint them with a tint of color. Approximately 2 months after full staining, they again use resistant dye, and not always the entire hair length. Most often, it is enough to update the color only on the roots of the curls, because on the rest of the length it still looks good.
