Dry Hair Treatments

Repair thirsty strands with easy dry hair treatments

Is your hair's BFF a flat iron? Have you spent too much time sunbathing this past summer? How about all those highlights you've been indulging in -- have they finally started to take their toll? If you answered yes to any of these questions, first, you're not alone. Second, it's about time you did something about it and we recommend dry hair treatments. If your hair breaks easily, no longer shines in the sun, feels rough or porous to the touch and frizzes up easily, then your dry, brittle hair is in need of some serious moisturizing love. Here are some easy treatments for dry hair that will nurse your strands back to health:

Use a deep conditioning treatment once a week

Readers trust Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask, $6.99 and Frederic Fekkai Protein Rx Anti-Breakage Treatment Mask, $28.50 to restore much needed moisture to their parched strands.


Try one of these DIY home treatments for dry hair weekly

*Slather olive oil onto your entire head and then use a blow dryer to blast a bit of warm air over your roots and ends, which will help your hair better absorb the oil. If you have fine hair and worry about olive oil weighing it down, simply add a teaspoon of avocado oil (a lighter substitute) to your normal conditioner.

*Make your own natural dry hair treatment with two simple ingredients: a teaspoon of lavender oil and a teaspoon on coconut milk. Massage the mixed combo into your dry hair before sleep and rinse off in the morning to reveal instantly healthier-looking and feeling hair.

*To add shine to lackluster locks, try rinsing your hair with a light beer, but be weary of darker colored ales as they can stain blonde hair.

A great thing to try if you have dry hair is to put a drop of conditioner in a spray bottle and add hot water. Shake it up so that it mixes and spray it on your hair instead of a leave in conditioner. And the deep conditioner once a week is also great!!!

The advice here is very sound. I will definitely try it. I normally use coconut and olive oil in my treatment though.

Yes to Argan Oil. Really does a good job!

ARGAN OIL all the way. I got the Pro Naturals one online and it helped my hair SO much, I still use it and my hair is perfectly healthy but I sort of can't live without it now, lol.

if you want to try the avocado choice you can find the oil in the cooking isle at the grocery store. for scalp issues i use vitamin E oil and spread it over my scalp. Then I blowdry it to give it some heat. Wait 20 mins and then rinse it in the shower.
