How To Treat Dry Hair

Hair normally has a moisture content of approximately 10%.

If your hair’s moisture content drops below this level the key is to increase the hair’s ability of attract and retain moisture. This is accomplished by using moisturizers. Good ones have "humectants" that not only replace lost moisture but actually attract moisture and retain it in the cortex of the hair. Essential fatty acids (EFA’s) are great moisturizers.

One of the best and most cost effective essential fatty acids is EMU OIL. It is rich in EFA’s. The scalp produces the best EFA’s called sebum. The problems is once the hair grows past the neck line or does not have direct contact with the scalp the scalps natural oils cannot be utilized throughout the hair shaft.

You can manually replace the lost EFA’s by:

Using EMU Oil Shampoo. There should only be enough to make your hands "shine" in the light. Carefully take your hair (while dry) and "scrunch" the small amount of oil to the ENDS first and work toward the scalp. Leave this in your hair. 1-2 drops of safflower oil on dry hair is so small, you won’t notice it is there.

Doing the above as often as necessary will ensure your dry hair will have the proper amount of humectants to attract and retain moisture. The key is that a small amount will go a long way. Read more about treating dry hair.

Deep-Penetrating Hydration & Moisture

The AEA (American Emu Association) certifies quality of Emu Oil used in shampoos and conditioners to ensure strict quality guidelines. There are several "Grades" of which the AEA recommends Grade A which is used in all HealthyHairPlus products. It's more expensive, but you get the maximum value and quality - essentially the same grade as used in products for treating skin ailments.

Not only is Emu Oil rich EFAs, the Omega 3, 6 and 9 found in the oil help improve the quality of the scalp and follicles offering deep-penetrating hydration topically. This is a significant benefit for types that are commonly chronically dry - namely, ethnic, hispanic and Black or African American Hair.
