Do you have dry hair?

Dry hair symptoms

Dull, brittle, hard to detangle.

"Yo-Yo" effect

Also known as "second day dry hair“ = Hair that dries out 2 days (or less) after treatment.

40 hours

That's how long hair can resist after treatment, before oxidative damage makes it dry again.

Dry ends

Your ends have lived through many years, they are the most sensitised part of your hair. Dryness is even more common if you have highlighted hair.

Normal hair

Scales are smooth, perfectly assembled. Cuticle is healthy.

Dry hair

Scales are lifted, the surface is rough. Cuticle is damaged or absent.

What are the causes?

Sun, pollution, water, oxygen, recurrent blow drying, frequent colouring and highlights.

EXPERT ADVICE

Dry hair should not be washed more than 3 times per week*

*Washing excessively contributes to stripping away the sebum
that nourishes and protects the fibre.

8 tips to help you to reduce the risk of dry hair

01
A PROFESSIONAL DIAGNOSIS

Visit your nearest Kérastase salon for an expert consultation to determine you hair's needs. Your stylist can determine the level of your hair's dryness and prescribe the most appropriate
at-home regime.

02
A nourishing bath

Choose rich formulas enriched with nourishing agents. When applying the bath, work up a lather using your fingertips and gently massage it onto your scalp, avoiding any rough friction.

04
BE GENTLE

Avoid vigorously towel-drying your hair before styling as this can cause the hair to be frizzy. Instead simply pat the hair dry before styling.

07
your hair is what you eat

Make sure that your diet is rich in
vitamins, mineral salts and fatty acids.
Fruits, vegetables and nuts are an
excellent source.

03
An intense care

A deep care tames, tangles and repairs slightly dry hair. When hair is very dehydrated, use a deep treatment at least once a week. For optimal nutrition, leave the masque on for a minimum of 5 minutes. You can also wrap your hair in a warm towel while the formula diffuses.

05
DON'T OVER-DETANGLE

You should not brush dry hair more than twice a day. Use a boar bristle brush and only brush when hair has fully dried. On wet hair, use a wide-tooth comb to gently detangle.

06
TAKE CARE WHEN HEAT STYLING

Try to let your hair partially dry before proceeding with styling. Apply a heat protection cream formulated for
dry hair. Use a styling brush with boar bristles which
doesn't tend to pull on the hair.

08
YOUR STYLIST IS YOUR HAIR'S BEST FRIEND

For hair that remains soft and shiny from root to tip, be sure to trim your ends every 2 to 3 months, with a professional hair stylist.
