Treatment for dull hair

Dull, lifeless hair

The outer layer of the hair is responsible for whether it looks shiny or dull: if hair is healthy, the individual cells lie flat so that they form a closed surface. The hair has elasticity and buoyancy. In dull hair, the cuticle layer is roughened. The hair looks straw-like and needs a good conditioning.

Use gentle shampoos followed by a conditioner. This ensures that the outer cuticle layer becomes smooth again. Treat your hair to a restorative, moisturizing deep conditioning treatment once or twice a week. A deep conditioning treatment often makes thin hair too soft to style afterward. Simply use the deep conditioning treatment before washing your hair. This reduces the softening effect.

You can protect your hair by avoiding damaging influences:

  • Intensive sunlight dries out the hair.
  • Seawater and chlorine damage the outer layer of the hair. Salty sea air also roughens the hair. Therefore, thoroughly rinse out salt and chlorine residues immediately after swimming.
  • Colouring, highlights, and perms put additional stress on dull hair. Make sure that you use conditioning products regularly. Ask your hairdresser or pharmacist for suitable products.
