How to repair and deeply nourish my very dry hair
"My hair is dull, impossible to detangle, and very dry. It feels rough and stiff, like straw."
HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE VERY DRY HAIR?
YOU HAVE VERY DRY HAIR IF:
Whatever you try, you just can't detangle your hair. You can't even get a comb through it. Once dry, it becomes rough, damaged and dull with split ends. When you run your hands through your hair, it lacks bounce and softness.
There is no question about it: you have very dry hair.
WHAT CAUSES VERY DRY HAIR?
You may have naturally dry hair, meaning the scalp does not get enough moisture and does not secrete enough sebum. But there is also everything you put your hair through: hot hair dryers, aggressive brushing, and unsuitable hair care products. Add to this the explosive mix of sun, wind, salt water, chlorine, pollution, UV rays and stress, and the results are all too apparent.
WHAT IS HAPPENING DEEP DOWN?
1. The hair's protective barrier (also known as the "hydrolipidic film") disappears
Damaged by hair care techniques and other stress factors, this protective shield can no longer provide an effective barrier.
2. The scales along the hair shaft separate and fall off
Like tiles on a roof, the scales overlap all the way down the shaft. If damaged, they come apart and expose the inside of the hair.
This allows the water that is normally retained within the hair to evaporate. The hair dries out.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF MY VERY DRY HAIR ON A DAILY BASIS
GIVE YOUR HAIR SERIOUS NOURISHMENT
Shampoo, even one well-adapted your scalp, is not enough to care for your hair. Your very dry hair is thirsty for protective and regenerative care.
If you like hair masks, apply the KARITÉ NUTRI Intense nourishing mask to every strand, along the shaft and tips, but avoiding the roots. Leave on for 5 minutes, then rinse thoroughly until your hair is squeaky clean.
For those who prefer oils, the KARITÉ NUTRI Intense nourishing oil will nourish your hair deep down.
For a touch of shine, use our secret weapon: spray LUMICIA Illuminating shine rinse all over your hair, and finish with a splash of cold water.
In between washes, KARITÉ NUTRI Intense nourishing day cream can work miracles to revive dry hair lengths and ends. Also a great tool for detangling damp hair.
STYLE YOUR HAIR CAREFULLY
Detangling your hair should not be a test of strength. For the gentlest, most effective results, make use of your shower time during your hair mask to detangle. Start at the tips and work upwards, then rinse thoroughly with cold water. Easy, stress-free untangled hair.
When it comes to drying your hair, make sure the temperature isn't too high and protect your hair from flat irons and blow drying with LISSEA Thermal protecting smoothing spray. For styling, the gentle, natural styling products from the STYLE range provide the look you need without damaging sensitive dry hair.
To get rid of split ends, try just 1-2 drops of KARITÉ NUTRI Intense nourishing day cream on blow-dried or towel-dried ends.
BEFORE COLORING, HIGHLIGHTING, OR STRAIGHTENING YOUR HAIR
The ABSOLUE KERATINE hair care range is your best friend for preventing the damage caused by aggressive hair techniques and protecting your dry hair.
SUPER-CHARGED BEAUTY REST
Nighttime is the best time to give your hair a break from the stress of the day. Take advantage of this time and gorge your hair on nourishing agents with KARITÉ NUTRI Overnight haircare. Deeply nourished, easier to style, soft, and shiny, rediscover the true beauty of your hair in the morning.
VACATION IN STYLE
On the beach or at the pool, make sure you protect yourself from UV rays, heat, sand, wind, chlorine, and salt, all of which can permanently damage the hair shaft and leave it brittle. Your hair becomes porous and gets trapped in a vicious cycle that makes it increasingly dry, fried, and bleached out. And there is always a chance of getting that green tinge from pool water.
Luckily, help is at hand.
In the sun, protect your hair with waterproof hair care products, such as SOLAIRE KPF 90 Protective summer oil for a "wet look" effect, or SOLAIRE KPF 90 Protective summer fluid for a more natural style. Afterwards, use the SOLAIRE Intense nourishing repair mask to repair even the most damaged hair.
