However, with the right approach, a few tips and tricks, product swaps and pro-tactics mean that glass-like healthy shine and soft, bouncy locks are just a few moments (and products) away. Read on to discover our best products for dry hair and essential care tips.

1. Don’t leave the house with wet hair

OK, so the old wives tale ‘you’ll catch a cold’ may have been banished to works of fiction – as we all know you get a cold from catching a virus, not with wet hair. However, it does leave your hair in a very vulnerable and compromised state, meaning it’s more susceptible to breakage and damage. An easy dry hair remedy is to ensure your hair is at least touch-dry before heading outside and exposing it to the elements.

2. Use a deep conditioner for dry hair

3. Use a hydrating shampoo for dry hair

Experts recommend keeping a variety of shampoo in your bathroom. If your mane feels thirsty and lifeless, you can inject much needed moisture back into it with the John Frieda Hydrate & Recharge shampoo for dry hair. If you style your hair often you might be after a deep cleanse from product build-up. To get back that healthy-looking glow and get rid of impurities, try our Detox & Repair Shampoo formulated with avocado oil and antioxidant-rich green tea. It not only removes impurities, but instantly revitalises dry, damaged hair.

4. Massage your scalp

A scalp massage will not only help you relax and relieve tension, but it also boosts blood circulation to promote healthy hair growth and helps relieve a dry, itchy head. Starting at the temples, use your fingertips to massage in small circular motions all over the scalp. Take small pieces of the hair, twist around your finger and gently pull. 

5. Protect your hair from heat damage
