3 Style Solutions For Dry Hair Types
Dryness happens to the best of us, but there’s nothing cute about dry strands blowing in the wind. If you’re dealing with brittleness up top and feel like you can’t do anything with your hair until you get the situation under control, fear not. First, be sure to use the right products to tackle dryness and secondly have a few styles in your arsenal for when dry hair strikes. Here are three of our faves, brought to you by L’Oréal Paris and its new Extraordinary Oil hair care line, formulated to combat dryness in just one use.
Bantu knots are the epitome of a stylish yet protective style. Coat each section of hair with L’Oréal’s Extraordinary Oil Transforming Oil in Cream to nourish dry strands. The process of twisting the hair and then wrapping it around itself to create the bantu knot helps lock in moisture and your ends are protected from splitting because they’re tucked into the knot retaining moisture as well. The look is a win all around.
A Twist Out
Like bantu knots, two-strand twists are also a protective style that will allow the hair shaft to maintain moisture while protecting the ends of the hair. Depending on how small you like your twists, the amount of time this process takes can vary. Done on either wet or dry hair, a twist out will take your ‘fro to the next level with defined waves and ringlets. Just make sure to moisturize your hair using L’Oréal’s Lustrous Oil Serum when you re-twist it each night so that you don’t end up with dry strands again.
A Top Knot
The thing about dry hair is you don’t want anyone to see it, and there’s no better way to deal than choosing to wear a top knot. Placing hair in a bun is not only the perfect mix of a sophisticated and playful hairdo, it’s also the ideal way to tuck away dry ends to make them less noticeable. Of course, this is just a temporary fix for the problem. Incorporate a nourishing treatment into your routine to help fight dryness — we suggest one from the L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Collection– and be careful not to pull your bun too tight, as you’ll be swapping one hair problem (dryness) for another (thinning edges).
