If you live in a climate as dry as that of Las Vegas, your hair not only soaks up the humidity and harmful UV rays, but it also picks up a great deal of sand and dust every time the wind blows.
Therefore, you need a powerful hair care regime to keep your gorgeous strands healthy, moist and hydrated. If you don’t take proper care, the heat will not only damage your hair, but leave your strands lifeless.
Tame Your Mane
When you live in a dry climate area, humidity attacks your hair with a lethal force and the heat becomes your worst enemy. Your hair can only survive these two if you hydrate and moisturize them regularly.
Hot, dry weather makes your hair excessively frizzy, but you can get rid of that by quenching the thirst for moisture. Invest in a leave-in conditioner, which will help smoothen out the frizz and help you lock in moisture.
When the sun is glaring down and your hair is getting fried every day, why pour more heat with styling products like curling irons, straighteners and even blow-dryers? Just let your hair air dry, and if you’re worried about styling, get a hairstyle that suits your natural hair type.
Block the Sun
If your hair is being exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays, its color and essential proteins are constantly depleting. This leads to excessive breakage, lack of volume and brittleness. Try to keep your hair nicely covered with hats, caps, sun-protection sprays, scarfs and all other products, or fashion staples that help shield your hair from direct exposure to the sun.
The sun does not only dry up your hair, but more importantly, it dries up your scalp and you need to moisten your scalp with hot oil aromatherapies. When the scalp dries up, it becomes prone to several ailments, like acne or dandruff. Oils such as olive, castor, almond, rosemary, sandalwood, chamomile, eucalyptus, peppermint, fennel, and jasmine can help you keep your mane moist and healthy.
Be sure to drink at least 8 glasses of water to help your hair stay hydrated, strong, and healthy.
