This hub will give you the names of the best shampoo, conditioner, and glossing products for dry, damaged, coarse hair. These products by Nexxus and Paul Mitchell should all be available at your local chain drugstore or pharmacy. We will also give you a suggested routine for applying the products.
Finding the best products for damaged hair can be expensive because there is a dizzying array of items available on the market, and it is overwhelming to decide which products will be right for you. So here are some tried and true recommendations for you.
The Best Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry, Damaged, or Coarse Hair
If you would like to make your coarse hair frizz up less, your split ends lay flatter, and your hair feel less dry, then try Nexxus Pro-Mend Split End Treatment Shampoo and Split End Binding Conditioner (photo below right).
I have had coarse, dry hair and have been prone to split ends my whole adult life. I dye my hair and also use a flat iron, so these styling steps make my hair even more vulnerable to damage.
But after trying this shampoo and conditioner just once, it made my hair feel softer and more moisturized, my split ends laid flatter, and it was also shinier.
Suggested Routine for Washing and Drying Your Hair
If you have dry, damaged, or coarse hair, you should be washing and drying it less often. Many people have been convinced their entire lives that they should be washing their hair at least every two days. But this can be very bad for your hair health.
Try washing your hair no more than once a week. (If you sweat a lot through exercise, then try to limit it to twice a week.) This is because the oils in your hair that make your hair appear healthier are stripped away every time you wash it, even though you condition it after a shampoo. Nothing can replace the healthy effects of the natural oils in your hair.
Although the blowdryer is damaging, I wouldn't suggest you stop using it. This is because it is impossible for some women to style their hair appropriately without it.
Make Your Dry, Damaged, or Coarse Hair Look Shiny and Healthy After Styling
The best product for this is Paul Mitchell Smoothing Gloss Drops (photo right). These drops will give your hair an appearance of being healthier than it is. This is because it provides shine, a little bit of weight to hold your split ends together, and also gives your hair a smoother texture to the touch.
How to Use Paul Mitchell Smoothing Gloss Drops
This product goes very far as it is highly concentrated and you only need to use two drops at a time, at most. One bottle should last you over a whole year.
When your hair is styled the way you desire, rub one or two drops between your fingers and smooth them over your entire head, concentrating on the areas that look like they are dry or are split ends. Use caution in applying too much as your hair can look greasy if you over-apply. You won't regret this purchase.
