Dry frizzy hair is no laughing matter! Dried hair is hard to style and looks unappealing. If it turns into a curl, parched hairdo, your hair will look frizzy and definitely unruly. You'll need to learn how to treat your hair with tender loving care for it to become soft and healthy looking.
Your hair is a general indicator of the status of your health. You'll feel more attractive when you feel terrific about the look and feel of your hair. When you have a profound looking hairstyle that complements your unique looks, you'll feel even better. Not all haircuts are suitable for dry hair.
Notice How Dry Hair Tends to Break at the Tips! It lacks luster and sheen, frizzes easily in humid weather and grows slowly, too. Your hair is dry because of a lack of moisture, harsh treatment, and using shampoos that strip your hair of its natural oils. Breakage from cheap combs, and hairbrushes and too much applied heat or blow drying when styling will strip your hair, as well.
You Can Calm Frizz with Oil, If You Aren't Sweaty
You must treat your dry locks with an extra gentle touch! A general rule of thumb for your ailing dry hair is to wash your hair every week; definitely not every day or else you will strip the natural oils in your hair.
Every couple of days you may drench your hair with a conditioner, moisturizer, next rinse hair lightly, and leave a bit of conditioner in it to comb through it gently.
When your hair is wet use a wide-tooth comb to comb your hair, and then allow your hair to air dry naturally. Applying cold air instead of a hot blow dryer will set the hair conditioner in your hair follicles. Blow drying or styling with a hot curling iron or straight iron will defeat the purpose of this dry hair remedy.
Morrocco Method makes a super line of hair care products for different hair types and textures, with quite a few for dry hair. Their best product for dry hair after you rinsed your hair conditioner with cold or lukewarm water is to apply their 'Diamond Crystal Leave-in Conditioner' on your wet hair. Wait a few minutes, and then naturally style your dry hair with aloe Vera.
Morrocco Method’s hair care products are extremely gentle. They make their products with natural, earthy ingredients without any synthetic or petroleum-derived ingredients. This is great news for all every hair type.
Use a Gentle Shampoo
It is utterly necessary to alter the brand of shampoo you use on your dry hair. Make sure your shampoos have gentle ingredients with added moisturizer. Before shampooing, you need to add healthy natural oils to your hair, alternate between extra-virgin coconut oil, and cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil for the best results to end your dry hair blues.
Leave these food-grade oils as long as you can stand it. Usually with a plastic cap overnight will do, to force the oil into your hair follicles and be careful not to soil your pillow. Adding moisture and being careful not to strip moisture is crucial for dry hair. To remove the oil treatment from your dry hair use Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Shampoo. This shampoo will remove the excess oil treatment, and not strip your hair containing the oil conditioner, and leave your hair extra soft to your touch.

You can also use Avalon Organics Tea Tree Oil Shampoo to wash dandruff out of your dry tresses. Before you know it, your dandruff will be a thing of the past, and so will your dry hair woes.

I like the Organix Moroccan Oil shampoo, and you can get a giant botlte at the Midtown Target for $8, which is awesome. But I'm opposite from you, hairwashing-wise, in that I shampoo maybe once a week (apart from my bangs) and condition like a mofo every day, so I don't know if it would be moisturizing enough to skip conditioner, but it's not so harsh that I can't use it regularly.

Wetting your hair everyday may dry it out more, if you don't add a bit of conditioner every time you wet your hair. A very gentle shampoo like Plant Shampoo by Deity of America will help to make your hair shiny and soft when you do wash your hair and condition.

I didn't know you should only condition every few days! I rarely use shampoo but Ive been conditioning everyday! My bad hair is genetic lol. I'm wondering: if you shouldn't wash your hair everyday, can it still get wet everyday? I have curls, which those who have them know you can't brush them. I just brush it in the shower, which I know know I also shouldn't do... brush first, then wet it, everyday? I so want long healthy hair!

Hello Acaetnna, The recommendation to wash dry hair every three weeks comes from a hair stylist who has been cutting hair for forty years. I'm giving her advice a try also, but she says it's important to wet your hair and apply hair conditioner in between the 3 weeks. I guess dry brushing your hair will help too. I'm looking forward to my dry hair becoming silkier and healthier.

My hair is very dry but thought of not washing it for three weeks! I really would find that hard to bear although I do know the longer the hair is unwashed the better it becomes! I don't think I am someone who would be able to try it!! Great hub and I will definitely try some of your ideas.
