If you develop dry hair, there will likely be questions about what caused your hair to get to this state and how you can treat it to counteract the dryness and prevent it from returning in the future. There are many potential factors that can dry out your hair. The causes of dry hair can vary from a dry climate to an imbalanced hair care routine and even from a fluctuation in hormones. When you use hair care products that are harsh, they can strip the hair of its natural oils leading to dryness as a result. Sticking to hair care products that are non-stripping can help to reduce the risk of hair becoming dry from this. 

When the climate is dry with low humidity in the air, there is a lack of moisture in the atmosphere which can lead to hair becoming dry over time. This is especially evident when it is a hot climate and the sun’s rays are shining directly on the hair for a prolonged period of time. If you can’t avoid the climate impacting your hair, you can change your hair care routine to include more hydration to counteract the moisture lost as a result of the environment you are in. 

Hormonal shifts can also cause changes in hair since they can trigger the scalp to produce less sebum at times, especially during menopause. This reduction of oil production in the scalp can lead to less oils on the hair and an increased potential for hair dryness as a result if hair care measures are not taken to counteract this. There are several methods you can implement into your hair care routine to help reduce dry hair and prevent it from drying out further in the future. Below is a list of various types of shampoo that are well-suited for dry hair. 

Best Shampoos for Dry Hair:

  1. Gentle shampoo: Gentle shampoos are less likely to strip the hair of its protective oils. This type of shampoo can help to prevent hair from drying out since the natural oils in it provide moisture and protection from drying.
  1. Anti-Dandruff shampoo: Since dandruff can often be caused by a dry scalp resulting in flaking skin, anti-dandruff shampoos tend to be moisturizing to help counteract this. The moisturizing effects that this has can be helpful for dry hair since it can provide hydration.
  1. Hydrating/moisturizing shampoo: Dry hair needs more moisture, not just in the form of conditioner or hair masks, but also in the shampoo you use. Often, conditioner is used towards the ends of the hair to avoid excess oil accumulating near the roots which tend to hold more moisture. When you use a moisturizing shampoo, you can help increase moisture throughout your hair in a way that does not increase the appearance of oiliness since it is being cleaned at the same time.
  1. Shampoo for color treated hair: Color treated hair needs shampoo that is specialized to avoid color bleeding. Color treated shampoo needs to be gentle and non-stripping to avoid washing out the hair dye which makes it a gentler way to wash hair. This can help prevent hair from drying out, especially for color treated hair that is already at an increased risk for damage due to previous chemical treatments it has undergone to be dyed.
