Why Is My Hair So Dry?

Dry hair can be caused by a number of external and internal factors. External factors include things like the weather, how often you wash your hair, the hair products you often use, style tools you use, or chemical styling and dyeing. While internal factors include the foods you eat, any medications you may be on, hormonal imbalances, and even genetics. Then let’s dive deeper into this.
First of all, we take a look at some of the environmental conditions that can cause dry hair including:
1. a dry, hot climate;
2. frequent exposure to the sun and wind;
3. frequent exposure to chlorinated or salty water;

Hair care habits that often contribute to dry hair include:
1. wash your hair too often;
2. use harsh shampoos, conditioners, or styling products;
3. frequently dye or chemically treat your hair;
4. blow-dry your hair too often;
5. often use curling irons, straighteners, or curlers to style hair;
6. Overbrush;
In some cases, dry hair is the result of an underlying health problem. Examples include:
1. anorexia nervosa: an eating disorder that can lead to malnutrition, cause dry and brittle hair, along with more serious complications.
2. hypoparathyroidism or hypothyroidism;
3. Menkes syndrome;
