Re: Desert dry hair help please

I love my Moroccan Oil products.  Hydrating line.  Also, use the smooth styling cream, deep conditioner, end mender (forget the exact name), styling prep, they too have argon oil, body and sun products.  My hair looked terribly dried out just from age and coloring, heat styling; now like new hair.

Las Vegas is known to have some of the hardest water. If you don't have a water softener/conditioner system on your water supply I would consider getting one. It will make a difference in the way your hair and skin feels.

 

On the hard-water scale Las Vegas has 290 ppm hardness. Anything over 181 is considered very hard.  Minerals found in hard water like calcium and magnesium gets stuck inside the hair cuticle and eventually causes a coating on the hair. This in turn prevents any moisture from entering the hair shaft. To put it in simple terms, your hair products will not work if you are using hard water.

 

You can counter act the effects of hard water by adding vinegar to rinse your hair. This will help remove mineral build-up and help your products penetrate the shaft.

We do have a water softener, and it helps a lot.

I was also going to suggest Carol's Daughter Monoi Hair Mask. It's the one thing that gave my hair life, bounce and weightless manageability when my hair was super dry. This mask is top-rated and it really does work. You can buy it from HSN.

@We lived in the high desert in Utah for @2 years , I feel ya.  I would try WEN Fig, or WEN Tuscan Fig.  It is the most moisturizing CC.  I would also add WEN oil into your regime.  These two products helped repair my medicine damaged hair, and I always have them on standby.  

 

It's on sale this month!

 

Best wishes.

I too live in Las Vegas, we moved from Southern Calif. My only suggestion is lots of conditioners and a smoothing serum. Find a good stylist with good products. I go to The Salon on the Lake in Summerlin. Very knowledgeable stylists.
