What your hair actually needs is moisturisation. It’s what’s required for locks to feel soft, smooth, hydrated. This means adding the moisturising elements found in effective shampoos and conditioners, much the same way we do in products we use for our face or body. To help, look for products with silicones and fatty alcohols, and search out terms like “lightweight moisture” or “intense moisturisation,” depending on what you think is right for your hair type. For ends that are dry, even if your roots aren’t, use a leave-in conditioner or serum on just the tips of your hair to avoid saturating the entire head.
