Our scalp produces a natural hydrolipidic film humectant secretion called sebum. Humectants are a protective coating over the hair strands that act as a magnet to retain water in your hair and lock it in.
Major contributor of dry frizzy hair strands is the lack of humectants in the hair shaft. If you hairs natural humectant, sebum isn’t evenly distributed it can lead to dry out, becoming susceptible to breakage, and frizziness. You can combat this problem by simply brushing your hair before bed and decrease the stress caused by dry hair. Your sebum production can fluctuate between overproduction to nonexistent throughout your life.
You can maintain a balanced protective humectant levels by washing your hair in nutrient rich shampoo, conditioner, and styling products which contain humectant.
My favorite nutrient humectant rich products are
