How to deal with dry or frizzy hair

Dry or frizzy hair can be a bit of a challenge, says Arran, but don’t despair. You can tame the frizz and say goodbye to dry hair by following a few simple steps.

What causes dry hair?

One of the most common causes of dry hair is overuse of heated styling tools explains Arran.

Other reasons include:

  • The scalp not producing enough natural oils.
  • Relaxers, perms and colouring or bleaching products used too often or incorrectly.
  • Too much exposure to sunny or windy weather.
  • Washing hair too often.
  • Using harsh shampoos and conditioners.

The end result is dry, unmanageable hair that looks dull and unhealthy.

Arran’s do’s and don’ts to treat dry hair

Here’s how to get back the shine and bounce advises Arran:

“Firstly, book an appointment on 01903 776000 or book online to have your hair trimmed (or restyled if you fancy a change). This will get rid of any split ends that are making your dry hair problem worse.”


  • Try to avoid over-use of heated styling tools.
  • Blow-dry your hair less often and use a heat protector when you do.
  • Protect your hair when out and about by wearing a hat – especially in the sun.
  • Avoid chlorine and sea water.
  • Reduce frequency of washing as this removes the hair’s protective oils.
  • Use a weekly nourishing masks to help lock in moisture.

Fighting the frizz

As if dryness and dullness isn’t enough to cope with, the ‘frizz’ is often not far behind as frizzy hair is craving moisture says Arran. If you don’t give frizzy hair the hydration it needs with moisturising products, it will take moisture from the humidity in the air.

Both straight and curly hair can become frizzy. Heat and high humidity will often cause problems for those prone to frizziness.

Arran adds “We have some really effective treatments and products to protect your hair against the effects of humidity and also calm the frizz.”

“Our Kerastase Discipline range is an ideal companion to combat frizzy and unruly hair”

He also recommends these steps to help combat frizzy hair:

  • Book regular maintenance cuts as split ends will make your hair look frizzier.
  • Ask your stylist to recommend the right moisturising shampoo and conditioner for you.
  • Rinse out conditioner with cold water to seal the cuticle and reduce moisture loss.
  • Ensure hair is 100% dry when blow-drying as the slightest trace of moisture can cause frizz.

Switch up products to combat dryness and frizziness

You may have been using the same products for years says Arran but now could be a good time to make some changes. We have some brilliant products to help treat dry and frizzy hair including rich shampoos and conditioners, hair masks, heat protection sprays and nourishing hair oils.

“We love to help and can talk you through our Kerastase range and recommend products that will work best for your hair type. It’s particularly important to get this right if your hair is chemically treated or has been coloured.

You can also opt for an in-salon Kerastase Fusio treatment to really amp up the moisture content, these typically last within the hair for up to 5 shampoos.
