Dry curls are something that I personally have to work hard at avoiding. Some things that effect dry curls are dandruff, porosity-which we previously discussed and heat.
Dandruff is a word that’s pretty common. You see commercials for it all the time with Head & Shoulders. But if you’re like me you know that shampoos like this aren’t always the cure for your dry hair. Sometimes dandruff can just be heredity from conditions like eczema. So you should always go to the doctor and check up on that because all the products in the world might not save you from something that’s naturally going to effect you. But as a backup, here are some things you should know. Coconut Oil, Cocounut Oil, Coconut Oil, I can’t say it enough. We’ve all seen those memes that say Cocount oil fixes everything and it’s kinda true.
Cocounut Oil is the best way and probably the easiest way to get rid of dandruff. Unless you like looking like a bowl of Frosted Flakes. Olive Oil also works well for removing dandruff. Basically if it’s an oil it’s more than likely going to be beneficial to you and your search for undesired dandruff.
We’ve already had an intense discussion on porosity so I’ll just tell you to refer back to an older post, Porosity, BKT’s & Other Strange Things.
Heat is a topic of much discussion as it should be. While you’re effortlessly walking around with you hair blowing in the wind, all the heat that was put into your hair for that Snapchat photo could be causing you more harm than good. Now as I’ve said before I use heat just as much as the next femele but all things in moderation. Excessive heat damage was a reason I cut my hair so too much can become a very big problem. Along with ruining your curl pattern, heat can be a major contributor to dandruff and dry scalp. Pulling back on your heat intake for two weeks or even a month or two can be great for your hair. I promise you you’ll see a difference. In January I ended my month and a half long no heat regimen and my hair was never better. There was growth, no dry scalp and moisture.
Dry scalp is a problem for many a person but I hope a little of this knowledge can go a long way.
