MP! Style Guide: How to bring the life back to your dry hair

Dry hair doesn’t style right, looks dull, and can feel like straw—not ideal. Thankfully, there are a lot of things you can do at home without ever setting foot inside a salon to help bring your dry back to life.

Olive oil

Seriously, this stuff isn’t just for dipping bread in. Soaking the bottom half of your hair in warm olive oil can help bring back moisture lost through hot tools, hair dye, environmental factors, and more.


Hair masques do you for your hair what skin masks do for you skin (duh). They’re an intensive moisture treatment that you leave on your hair longer than you would regular conditioner, giving them ample time for their moisturizing ingredients to penetrate.

Omega 3 fatty acids

Eat foods rich in the stuff, and you could see a huge difference in your hair (and skin and nails). Seeds, nuts, fish, and spinach are examples of these.

Less shampooing

Shampoo strips your hair of its natural oils, and shampooing too much can leave your hair super dry. Use a dry shampoo to help extend the time between washes.

Less heat

It probably goes without saying, but if you’re suffering from dry hair, try to stay away from blow dryers, straighteners, and curling irons. They’ll cause more damage.
