We lose about 50 to 100 hairs every day. However, you could shed more if your hair is weak, dry, or brittle. Before you begin losing your luscious locks, use these hair care tips for hydrated hair.
Caring for your hair can boost your self-confidence. You can avoid the stress of having hair that’s susceptible to damage, too.
Read on to discover how to hydrate your hair today!
1. Use the Right Products
You can begin hydrating your hair by adding the right hair care products to your routine. Some formulas are designed to add moisture to dry hair. You can choose products based on your hair type.
Consider adding a deep conditioning product to your routine, too. A masque can hydrate and nourish your hair within five minutes or less. You can use a masque instead of your conditioner twice each month.
Next, consider adding oils to your routine. Oils can lock moisture in to ensure healthy, hydrated hair.
For example, you can use castor oil. Add the oil to your damp hair after you wash or moisturize. Only use a little; otherwise, you could weigh your hair down.
Don’t use oil too often, though. Using oil too often between washes can also weigh your hair down.

2. Drink Water
Make sure you’re drinking enough water each day. Water can moisturize your skin and locks. Otherwise, a dry scalp could contribute to dry, brittle hair.
Keeping your scalp healthy can help promote healthier hair growth.
Consider using a spray bottle to re-hydrate your hair in the middle of the day. Then, follow up with a product to help lock the water in.
3. Don’t Overwash
Washing your hair too often can strip away natural oils. You need to give your hair time to replenish those oils, especially if you use harsh shampoos.
Avoid overwashing your hair. Instead, give it a day or two between washes.
You can use a dry shampoo to refresh your hair if it feels oily between washes. Use lukewarm water to avoid drying out your hair, too.
4. Protect Your Hair
Make sure to protect your hair if you plan on staying outside for long stretches at a time. Otherwise, the sun’s UV rays could dry your hair out.
About a third of US consumers style their hair at least once a week. Unfortunately, the heat from your style tools can dry out your hair, causing breakage and split ends. Try to avoid using hot tools too often.
When using your favorite hot tools, try to lower the heat. Consider using a heat protectant product, too.
