What can I do about dry and damaged hair?

Are you suffering from dry and damaged hair? That can be very annoying! A lot of people suffer from this. But what now? By using the right products, you can have healthy, beautiful and shiny hair.

What is dry and damaged hair?

The hair surface consists of hair cuticles, these allow moisture to be stored properly in the hair. In healthy hair these cuticles overlap so that the outer layer of the hair is nicely closed. When the cuticles are damaged, they open and the moisture balance can be disturbed. This can cause the hair to dry out. Also, the open and damaged cuticles cause hair to appear dull and frizzy and less shiny.

What causes dry and damaged hair?

You can damage hair in several ways. Usually this happens because the wrong products are used, or the hair is not taken care of properly. Hormone fluctuations can also contribute to dry and damaged hair, these cause a lack of sebum in the scalp. Damaged hair is caused by things as:

Using the wrong products

Many products contain strong degreasing substances such as SLS or alcohol, these substances cause the sebum production of the scalp to change. In our scalp there are sebaceous glands (grease glands). The production of sebum and grease is necessary to keep the skin healthy and protect it from infections and bacteria. So always choose products that do not contain harmful substances so that the sebum production of the scalp remains normal and the hair and scalp remain nourished.

Altered sebum production

Sometimes the sebum production is not as it should be, for example too much or too little sebum is produced by the body. Hormone fluctuations, for example, can cause reduced sebum production, which dries out the hair. You can then temporarily use extra care products as support.

Washing hair too often or not properly

Washing too often or too little can cause too much sebum and greasy hair. Also, using conditioner excessively or incorrectly can cause hair to become greasy and brittle quickly. If you wash the hair and scalp too often you change the sebum production which can cause the hair to dry out severely.

Heat and/or styling

Also the frequent use of hair dryers, curling irons and straighteners can cause dry and brittle hair. The hair consists for a very large part of moisture. The heat from these tools burns the moisture out of the hair and can cause it to dry out. This damages the cuticle and disturbs the moisture balance of the hair. By using a product that protects against heat you protect your hair from drying out. A heat protective product like the Abyssian Silk Milk puts a layer around the hair, so the moisture can't be burned out of the hair.

Chemical treatments

By regularly dyeing, bleaching or perming your hair, you change the composition of the hair. These treatments can damage the hair cuticles, causing the hair to become dry and damaged. It is therefore important to take good care of your hair even with these types of treatments.

How do you prevent dry and damaged hair?

To prevent dry and damaged hair, it is important to use the right products and to use them in the right way. It is best to use the following products:

Products for dry and damaged hair


Use a mild, nourishing shampoo like the Abyssian hydration shampoo or the Nia repairing shampoo.

This shampoo repairs and moisturizes the hair and repairs split ends. Always pre-wash the hair once with a small amount of shampoo to remove the initial dirt from the hair and scalp. After this, wash the hair again with a generous amount of shampoo. A shampoo opens the hair cuticles so that the active ingredients can penetrate the hair properly. A nourishing shampoo also cares for the scalp and removes grease and dirt from the hair.

After washing with a conditioning shampoo and opening up the hair cuticles, it is good to use a quality conditioner. 

To avoid weighing down the hair, it is best to use a conditioner only in the ends and lengths of the hair, and not at the roots or on the scalp. It is also very important to wash out the conditioner thoroughly.
