Most of us have dealt with dry hair, a dry scalp, or both at some point. First there’s the static electricity standing-on-end look, then there’s the itching — just there, above the ear, no, no wait, over here by the neck, up, up, just a little more — then, if you’re really lucky, there’s the dandruff (but that’s another story). Dry hair, a dry scalp, and even dandruff have a myriad of causes and solutions.

You need to figure out what’s happening to the natural oils your body should produce to keep your skin and hair healthy, and then you need to figure out how to replenish and replace that moisture. And that’s why we’re here.

Salon products such as Kerastase haircare line prove effective.
