The sensation of dry hair can be caused by a poor production of sebum by the sebaceous glands on the skin.
It may seem strange but sebum is actually essential both for protecting the skin and the hair: in fact sebum creates a film around the hair that isolates it from aggressive external agents.
When the sebaceous gland does not produce enough sebum (a very common condition in menopausal women) the hair appears more dry from the root and obviously is more prone to damage.
External agents can cause the dehydration of our hair : the sun, pollution, salt or chlorine, among these.
Even the washing with detergents that are too aggressive and the excessive use of hair dryers / plates / irons at high temperatures can help make the hair very dry on the lengths and ends (generally they look like fat at the root).
Let’s find out how to take care of your hair in order to hydrate them as much as possible.
