Healthy, shiny hair that feels soft to the touch is on a wish list for most. However, from pollution to heat stylers to hair coloring, there are several factors that contribute to dry hair. Blame it on our obsession with instantly becoming a brunette or a redhead or with re-creating our favorite celeb hairstyles, but even virgin hair (meaning non-color-treated) can sometimes suffer from a lack of hydration. So you see, having dry strands is often more common than not. Thankfully, there are plenty of moisture heroes out there ready to come to the rescue. From a mask treatment to a leave-in conditioner to an oil, ahead are some moisturizing and hydrating products that know how to fight off dryness.
