How Can I Increase Moisture: 3 Tips & Products to Instantly Improve Dry Hair

Posted by Design Essentials on Apr 16th 2019

One of the most common hair frustrations is dryness, especially coming out of the spring months. With Summer now shining upon us, it's time to focus on restoring and increasing moisture to those suffering with dry, brittle strands to prepare your hair for the heat and dryness of summer. Instantly improve dry hair with these 3 moisturizing tips featuring product recommendations from our new Design Essentials Platinum Moisture Collection.

1. Open Your Hair Cuticle To Replenish Moisture.

To truly improve dry hair from the inside out, you must begin with an open hair cuticle so moisture can be received into the hair shaft. This starts on wash day! Wet your hair with warm water to open the hair cuticle (warm water opens the hair cuticle; cool water closes it).

Next, lather in Design Essentials Platinum Deep Moisturizing Shampoo, specially formulated for dry or coarse hair and infused with nourishing Coconut Oil to provide superior hydration.

After just one use, you'll instantly notice a difference in how soft, smooth, and hydrated your hair looks and feels.

2. Deep Condition Your Strands & Smooth The Cuticle.

After cleansing and while the hair shaft is still open, deep condition and smooth your hair cuticle with our new favorite, Design Essentials Platinum Ultra-Moisturizing Mask. Trust and believe your strands will absolutely love you for this conditioning mask treatment – guaranteed to strengthen the hair while locking in moisture for an unbelievably hydrated, manageable feel.

Design Essentials Platinum Deep Moisturizing Shampoo & Ultra-Moisturizing Mask.

Apply the Platinum Ultra-Moisturizing Mask from root to ends. Comb through with a wide tooth comb, and let the mask stand for 5 minutes.

Rinse thoroughly with cool water (remember cool water closes the hair cuticle).

If you're experiencing excessively dry, dehydrated hair; after shampooing towel blot and generously apply the Platinum Ultra-Moisturizing Mask to damp hair. Comb through for even distribution, cover hair with a plastic processing cap, and allow your hair to process up to 15 minutes under a hooded dryer or hair steamer for maximum penetration.

Rinse with cool water, then proceed to our next moisturizing tip.

3. Seal In Moisture & Close Your Hair Cuticle.

Before styling your tresses, lock in moisture with Design Essentials Platinum Moisturizing Leave-In Conditioner. This intense reconditioning leave-in was specifically made to improve dry hair by providing moisture balance, and preventing breakage while offering a silky-smooth finish that’s full of body and sheen.

Spray evenly throughout your hair and comb through to ensure hair is moisturized from roots to ends. DO NOT RINSE.

Follow-up with select products from Design Essentials Platinum Styling Collection to smooth and seal the cuticle. Proceed to style, set, or blow-dry.

And boom...the integrity of your once dry, brittle hair should look and feel restored. But combating dryness can’t stop there. To see continued results, visit with a professional hairstylist for regular hair trims, deep conditioning treatments, and take-home hair care that improves the softness, manageability, shine, and overall health of your strands like products from our Design Essentials Platinum Moisture Collection.
