We have all experienced fry hair at one time or another in our lives, sometimes the weather is so dry in the winter and it can get the best of our hair and skin. Or the water in your home is really filled with chlorine and it is damaging your hair beyond belief. Some people just dye their hair and style their hair a lot with various tools that heat the hair and can cause damage. Hair dryers and hair curlers and hair straighteners can be especially damaging to hair, and as the article from Best Health recommends, you should try not to use these intense heating tools every day if you want healthy hair. You can try using them less for a month and see how well your hair adjusts to having less heat on it daily. You might just notice that this fixes your dry hair issues altogether. If you are going to use heating tools, then you can protect your hair from heat by using products that have dimethicone or phenyltrimethicone which are thermal protectors that shield your hair.
