Hair plays a significant role in our appearance, and it is often considered one of the most important aspects of beauty. Our hair can frame our face, complement our features, and even change the way we feel about ourselves. Beautiful hair can boost our confidence, enhance our self-esteem, and make us feel more attractive. Furthermore, hair can be used as a means of self-expression, allowing us to showcase our personality and style. Whether it’s a chic updo, flowing curls, or a bold and bright color, our hair is a canvas for creativity.

Given that our hair is exposed to various chemicals and environmental elements that can cause damage, it is equally important to pay attention to our hair care routine. Not doing so may leave our crowning glory looking dull, dry, and brittle.

What causes hair dryness?

Moisture plays a crucial role in the health of our hair. Our hair is made up of three layers: the cuticle, cortex, and medulla. The cuticle is the outermost layer, and it is responsible for protecting the inner layers from damage. When the cuticle is damaged or dry, it can lead to a range of hair problems, including breakage, split ends, and frizz.

Moisture is essential for keeping the cuticle healthy and intact. It helps to keep the hair shaft pliable, so it is less likely to break. When hair is adequately moisturized, it has a smoother texture, making it easier to comb and style.

Moisture also helps to maintain the elasticity of our hair. Elasticity is the ability of our hair to stretch and return to its original shape without breaking. When our hair is dry and lacks moisture, it becomes brittle and prone to breakage.

There are several factors that can contribute to hair dryness, including:

  • Environmental factors: Exposure to the sun, wind, and dry air can strip the hair of its natural oils and moisture
  • Heat styling tools: Frequent use of heat styling tools, such as flat irons, curling irons, and blow dryers, can remove the moisture and even damage the hair
  • Chemical treatments: Chemical treatments, such as hair coloring, perming, and relaxing, can weaken and dry the hair
  • Over-washing: Over-washing the hair can strip it of its natural oils, leading to dryness. Similarly, using harsh shampoos that contain sulfates or alcohol can also dry out the hair.
  • Diet: A diet lacking in essential nutrients, such as protein, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids can also lead to dry hair
  • Genetics: Some people may be predisposed to dry hair due to genetics.
  • Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as hypothyroidism and hormonal imbalances, can cause dry hair.

How can you keep your hair hydrated?

There are many things we can do to keep our hair moisturized. Firstly, avoid the factors that can lead to dryness. Limit the use of heat styling tools. When you have to use them, try applying a heat protectant spray to your hair. Similarly, UV rays can damage your hair, thus it is important to wear a hat, use an umbrella, or apply a hair product with UV protection, when spending time under the sun.

As any health practitioner would say, drink your water! Staying hydrated is important to maintaining healthy hair. Aside from drinking water, you can also moisturize your hair and scalp by using certain products such as moisturizing shampoo, conditioners, and hair masks. Try to look for products that contain hydrating ingredients such as glycerin, aloe vera, natural oils, and the so-called holy grail of moisturization – hyaluronic acid.

Hyaluronic acid in hair care

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found in our skin and other connective tissues. It is a glycosaminoglycan, which is a long chain of carbohydrates that can bind to water molecules, making it an effective hydrating agent. Hyaluronic acid is also used in various skincare products due to its ability to attract and retain moisture, which can help improve skin hydration and texture.

In recent years, hyaluronic acid has also gained popularity in the hair care industry. Hyaluronic acid is believed to help promote healthy hair growth by hydrating the hair follicles and scalp. It can help to improve the overall health of the hair and promote a more youthful, vibrant appearance.
