Usually, people who have a dry skin type suffer from the problem of dry hair as well. Dry hair is a term given to hair that lacks natural sheen and is of a very rough texture.
The hair is similar to the skin and is made out of three layers which work in unison. This means that there are outer and inner layers of your hair. The outer hair layer protects the inner hair layers. A damaged top hair layer is the root of the dry hair problem. The sebaceous gland is responsible for releasing oil into the hair. A person suffering from dry hair usually has had their natural oils depleted through various activities.
Chlorine water splashing, sun tanning, prolonged exposure to heat from dryers and styling tools are all unhealthy actions. These actions strip your hair of its natural oils and cause dry hair. Both men and women can experience symptoms of dry hair.
