Hair too dry and damaged

  • I suggest getting your hair trimmed every 6 months to remove dead ends. Use shampoo and conditioner appropriate for your hair type. Unless you have oily hair, I would only shampoo your scalp and then condition while combing through your hair. If you have oily hair, don't condition the scalp. When combing, start at the ends and work your way up to detangle. I suggest this method because when you comb from the scalp, you create a "birds nest" effect and your hair becomes more tangled. Depending on your hair type, use a light leave-in conditioner or moisturizing oil spray to apply to the ends of your hair when you style it. When using hot styling tools, make sure the temperature is not hot enough to burn your hair. Once a week, use a deep-conditioning product in the shower and leave it on for the recommended time. I hope this helps!

        • Do you have chemically processed hair? if yes then You could also talk to your hairdresser about which products to use and how often.


          • It is an old post, but for anyone with dry, damaged processed hair, using a hair mask before washing hair is best. Then you can use a leave-in conditioner after shampooing your hair. They are light and easy to use these days.

            I hope anyone finds this advice useful.


            • When I've had an issue with my hair type, like you have now, I've started searching for hairstyle tips and tricks, and how I can make it look better, so long story short I've found dozens of blogs and websites, but the most valuable was this one, where authors are professional hair dressers, and definitely know what to recommend about your hair.
