My hair is naturally wavy i straighten it every second day, it has become dry and brittle any tips ? I already use conditioner & leave in conditioner.
i know it sounds funny, but do this weekly, go buy hellman's mayo and smother your hair with it for like 4 weeks, leave it on for like 20 - 25 mins, then wash as usual.
don't listen to that first person, it doesnt work at all and makes your hair greasy. go and purchase Pantene Pro-V Restoratives shampoo and conditioner, it works wonders.
you should be using a good quality straightener to start with and also buy a heat protection product specialy desinged for use b4 straightening. Try not to wash ur hair too often especially the day after straightning And use a shampoo with lots of moisturiser in it so one for dry or damaged hair. Also Dont put shampoo in the ends of ur hair only put conditioner there.
stop straightening it!!!!! and condition it everyday and use leave in conditioner make sure to get it trimmed every month 1/2 or so also try deep conditioning at a salon
you should be using heat defense sprays like vo5 heat defense or garnier.
and shine spray might make your hair look a little less dry and more.. shiny and soft.
go in the hair isle of CVS or the supermarket, there are soooooooo many hair products for this problem. just read the bottles.
use really good moisturizers in ur hair
like go look for an apothecary and ask for help for ur condition
orr u could use intense conditioners, there are some really good brands at target
and eat proteins too, and foods that are good for ur hair
try making like an avocado smoothie conditioner or just blend avocado into like gooey paste and use it to condition ur hair
u should also try using a straitening brush rather than heated straigteners, those types of brushes are sold at like rite aid or cvs pharmacy u'll know it when u see it cus its like a folded brush and just brush ur hair straight after u wash that way u dont damage it or even brush it when its dry so u dont lose hair
shea butter will make ur hair soft,
avocado makes it moisturized
coconut oil could be good too
try the nexus conditioners and read for labels that say like intense repair or moisturizing/u can get them from Target! for a good price
here are several alternative treatments to eliminating dry hair. And believe it or not, some are pretty great.
* Aromatherapies are believed to help improve dry hair. If you add a combination of six drops of lavender, bay and sandalwood essential oils with six ounces of warm sesame or soy oils then apply the oil to the hair, wrap in towel for 15 minutes, then rinse; this will help in treating dry hair.
* Food Therapy; yes even diet can play a part in the dryness of one's hair. Eat lots of food high in omega -3 fatty acids, such as fish. It is recommended that you eat salmon or some other cold water fish at least twice per week. Add flaxseed oil to your diet; approximately two tablespoons a day added to popcorn or potatoes can replenish lost hair and skin oils. Flaxseed has a buttery, nutty like flavor, try it, it's not that bad.
* Hot oil treatments are great for adding oils and moisture to dry hair. These can be bought over the counter or you may want to visit a salon for the treatment. But a great "at home" remedy is the following: Place 1 or 2 drops of safflower oil in your palms and rub them together, scrunch into the hair and leave. Or try this remedy, massage 2 tablespoons of warm olive or almond oil into your hair, wrap your head in a warm damp towel and wait 30 minutes and then rinse. Apply hot oil treatments to the hair at least every 3-4 weeks for maximum benefits.
