Run your hands through your hair from root to tip, but pay close attention to your ends. How do they feel? Are they soft and smooth, or are they rough, frizzy and split? If your ends are on the damaged side, your hair is in immediate need of some hydration.

You need to get to the root of the problem and determine why your hair is so dry in order to fix it. Perhaps your hair is dry because your scalp isn’t making enough natural oils. Sebum is produced by the sebaceous gland on your scalp to keep hair healthy, smooth and strong. If your scalp is dry, your ends will be too, and you’ll need to get a moisturising shampoo to help bring hydration back to your hair. If your scalp is oily and your ends are dry, you need to spread the oils out evenly throughout your hair to prevent it from drying, which can be done by brushing from root to tip. Alternatively, your hair might be dry because you are letting moisture escape. Too much heat from the sun, heat styling tools and hot showers makes your cuticle open up, letting moisture out and causing frizz, split ends and dry ends.

Dry hair is the worst, but luckily it doesn’t have to stay that way. Your best bet for combatting dry hair is a good hydrating shampoo, made from all-natural ingredients. This will gently clean your hair, like any other shampoo, but most importantly, it will nourish your hair with essential vitamins and minerals, and add moisture to your locks without weighing it down. Make sure the hydrating shampoo you use is also a sulfate-free, silicone-free and cruelty free shampoo, to ensure it will not irritate your scalp and further damage your hair.

Sweet orange vanilla shampoo is invigorating, purifying and hydrating. Orange is packed full of Vitamin C, which helps maintain strength in your hair, but orange also has special anti-inflammatory properties, which help balance your scalp, keeping it happy and healthy. Vanilla has B-Vitamins which help nourish your scalp and hair follicles. Combined with jojoba oil, shea butter, silk amino acids, sweet orange vanilla shampoo is the perfect hydrating formula to provide excellent moisturize for dry, brittle hair. These ingredients are known to improve the smoothness of the hair strand while leaving your hair soft, manageable, shiny and silky smooth, making it the ideal hydrating shampoo.

Of course, you don’t want to rely on using your shampoo every day to add moisture to your hair. The general rule to maintaining moisture is wash less but condition more, and this is especially important for those with curls who need moisture. Pair your shampoo with the sweet orange vanilla conditioner for an extra boost of hydration to your ends. The all-natural ingredients will help deeply penetrate your hair, to lock in moisture and smooth the texture of your hair.
