If you have dry hair, try magic treatment . Mix the juice of a lemon with the flesh of 1/2 an avocado pear and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. This should form a homogeneous paste. Apply it to your hair, leave it on for 30 minutes and then wash your hair with your usual shampoo. Your hair will be soft and silky to the touch.
Shampoo less often. Hair becomes dry when the natural oils produced by your scalp aren’t getting the chance to nourish it. Shampooing dry hair every day will make it ever drier and more brittle since you’re stripping those oils away on a daily basis. Cut back to shampooing just two to three times a week, to give your hair the chance to receive those nourishing oils
- When you first cut back, you’ll notice your scalp producing a lot of oil, since it’s used to having to overproduce to make up for how much gets washed out. Give it a week or two and you’ll find that things balance out; you’ll be able to go several days in between washings without your hair looking dirty.
- If your roots start looking a little oily, dry shampoo is a great way to remedy the problem without washing your hair.
Let your hair air dry. Are you addicted to your hair dryer? Time to put it down and let your hair dry on its own. Directing hot air toward dry hair won’t give it the chance to get healthy. While a blowout might make your hair look shiny, the heat is actually quite damaging, and over time will cause breakage and split ends.
- When you first start letting your hair air dry, you might not be thrilled with the results. Give it some time; after a month or so of treating your hair gently, your beautiful natural texture will finally get the chance to shine through.
- When you just have to style your hair with a dryer (which should be done only on special occasions), use the warm or cool setting on your dryer, and keep it several inches from your head.
Halt damaging hair treatments. Straightening, curling, dyeing, or otherwise processing your hair can cause long-term damage, even if you just do it once. If your hair is dry and you’re trying to restore its health, you won’t see your natural shine and texture return until you give it a break from these damaging treatments. Avoid the following:
- Using heat styling tools like curling irons, hot rollers, or straighteners (consider options that don’t require heat).
- Dyeing, bleaching, or highlighting (try a natural alternative).
Brushing Hair When Wet.Remember that hair is most susceptible to breakage when it is wet,” says Vaught. This won’t necessarily dry the hair, but it will leave the ends brittle and lead to breakage down the entire strand. Instead of brushing wet hair, use a comb with a bit of leave-in conditioner on it.
