1. Invest in a leave-in conditioner.

Leave-in conditioners are ideal for those of looking for an extra shot of hydration. Our first hydrating hair tip: it’s important to look out for formulas that list water or moisturizing oils as their main ingredients. Suave Professionals Avocado + Olive Oil Smoothing Leave-In Conditioner is a drugstore favorite that’s ideal for this purpose. Use it after you wash your hair as a leave-in solution for hair dehydration.

2. Avoid heat.

Consider stashing your hot tools away for the duration of the season and wearing your hair natural. Extra heat has the potential to further dry your hair out so it’s best to avoid heavy heat when possible. If you find yourself spending a lot of time out in the sun then consider grabbing a hat or a scarf to protect your strands!

3. Drink water.

Last but not least, one of the most logical hydrating hair tips yet. You are what you eat, right? This applies to hydration, too! Grab an environment-friendly reusable water bottle and make hydration a priority. The more water you drink, the better your hair will look and feel!
