Do you have weakened and damaged hair? We have unearthed for you 10 perfect products to bring care and shine to dry hair.
Hair that looks like straw, brittle, fragile, and without shine: these are typical symptoms of dry hair. Luckily, we’ve found treatments that will make your damaged hair shiny and silky smooth again.
What should be done to permanently repair dry and damaged hair? They need to be healed again and again! With good quality products, you can transform your dry hair into a beautiful, healthy hair. For this, we have unearthed for you magic treatments that will do the greatest good to your dry hair.
Why does hair get dry?
Healthy hair contains 10% moisture. Hair becomes dry and damaged if the sebaceous glands in the scalp do not produce enough sebum to moisturize the hair all the way to the ends.
Sometimes the production of the sebaceous glands is not sufficient. In particular, if external factors attack the hair: UV rays, saltwater, too frequent coloring (in the case of colored hair), exposure to heat (for example by a hairdryer or a straightening iron), unsuitable care, or hormonal fluctuations can have an adverse effect on hair health.
Products that help treat dry hair:
Specific hair care that hydrates a lot is ideal for treating dry hair. Surfactants (washing agents that create foam), on the contrary, dry out the hair. This is why it is advisable to preferably use products that contain little or no conventional surfactants.
Shampoos or treatments based on the following components are ideal for treating dry hair: vegetable oils, keratin, panthenol, and unsaturated fatty acids. Algae, sea minerals, and aloe vera also revitalize dry hair. One watchword: intense nutrition!
In the case of dry hair, it is advisable to apply “leave-in” products, that is to say without rinsing.
Following these guidelines, here are 10 awesome products that will intensely heal your damaged hair and make it beautifully supple.
Products for Dry Hair – Amazon
L’Oréal Paris Botanicals Fresh care
We love the “Botanicals” collection from L’Oréal Paris. Why? Because all products are composed of natural substances, without silicones, parabens, or dyes.
This leave-in pomade is a real miracle cure: enriched with safflower, soy, and coconut oils, it softens dull hair and fine hair and provides radiant shine to colored hair.
The application of this hair care is simple: you just have to melt a hazelnut on the dry or wet lengths, and that’s it.
Moroccanoil Oil Treatment
In order to fortify dry hair, we discovered this magic product: the Moroccanoil Oil Treatment. Unlike other hair care products that make hair oily and heavy, argan oil strengthens and restructures hair damaged by external factors and chemicals.
This treatment can be applied to dry hair or to damp, pre-dried hair by rubbing it with a towel. It penetrates immediately and promotes the regeneration of damaged hair.
The intensive keratin & collagen cure by Dr. Schedu Berlin
Dr. Schedu Berlin Intensive Care is a hair care product that perfectly moisturizes dry hair without unnecessary additives: the brand has completely renounced the use of silicones, parabens, paraffin, ammonia, and formaldehyde.
Another good news: it is a 100% cruelty-free brand (the products are not tested on animals).
The ingredients are purely natural: aloe vera, keratin, collagen, jojoba oil, argan oil, and shea butter, which strengthen the hair and prevent split ends.
Application: After shampooing, massage 2-3 hazelnuts of the product into the hair. Leave on for 5 to 10 minutes and rinse totally with water.
Coconut heat protectant spray
Curling irons, straighteners, hairdryers, and the like can put a strain on your hair. But the heat is sometimes very useful to achieve a perfect hairstyle.
In this case: a heat protection spray is essential! Second Glance Beauty coconut spray contains natural coconut oil. It pampers our hair and durably protects the ends from breakage.
And to top it off, the fragrance diffuses a delicate summer atmosphere.
OGX Coconut Water Shampoo
The best protection against dry hair is a shampoo that deeply moisturizes. We invite you to discover one from the super-trendy brand OGX, which is literally for all hair types: for all ethnicities, all genders, all ages, and all styles.
This shampoo is ultra-light thanks to its formula including coconut water and coconut oil, in order to nourish dry and dull hair and give it a satiny and shiny appearance.
Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector
Olaplex is an American restorative treatment that was until now only available in certain hair salons. But we found it for you on Amazon, so you can enjoy it quietly at home.
Applied once a week, this treatment repairs the hair or prepares it for the next coloring.
Simply massage the product generously into slightly damp hair (towel-dried) and then distribute it with a brush or comb. Let it act for at least 10 minutes, and if you want to obtain an intense nourishing effect, you just have to extend the duration of the application. Rinse the hair well and then wash it as usual with shampoo.

Don’t forget to choose the ideal conditioner for your hair, especially if in addition to being dry, you have colored hair or fine hair.

This intense nutrition serum is perfect for revitalizing dry hair. Apply it before washing your hair, let it act then shampoo and rinse thoroughly. Very effective hair care!
Revlon Uniq One leave-in spray mask
This spray has revolutionized the world of hairdressing. Just that. This is the first leave-in mask for damaged hair that is applied as a spray. Because after each wash, our hair needs to be cared for.
Uniq One spray makes brushing wet hair easy, but be careful: brush gently, as wet hair is very fragile and breaks easily. The treatment repairs dry and damaged hair and protects it from heat, UV rays and other external factors. Just apply it to wet hair, and that’s it!
To overcome your dry and dull hair, there are also more natural solutions. For example, the oil bath is an excellent remedy for damaged hair.
You can also concoct homemade hair masks with very simple ingredients.
