Dry hair. - June 23rd 2010, 08:05 PM

So i've been having a problem. My hair is starting to look really dried out. How can I prevent this, and stop it from looking/feeling dry? I want it to be shiny and stuff. Any advice?

Buying a conditioning shampoo is always good - just make sure you wash it out well otherwise you'll end up with heavy build up. Also, using conditioner on the ends normally does it for me. You can buy shine sprays to make your hair feel shiny and soft - again you just might have to wash your hair more often to prevent build up.

Basically find some nice shampoo that is specialised for dry hair

After a shower/washing your hair, blast it with cold water for ten seconds. It helps make it lovely soft and shinyyy..

I like using thick conditioner, and letting it sit on my hair for a couple minutes while I shave my legs, or whatever else I have to do in the shower, then rinse it towards the end. Gives the conditioner time to soak in, thus more effective.

Conditionnerrrr. Use it and leave it as long as possible. If you want to really over do it, go in the shower/bath, do what you normally do and stuff. Shampoo. Wash the shampoo out. Completely cover your hair in conditioner, and then get a towel and wrap your hair up with the conditioner still in. Leave for 10/20/30 minutes then wash off.

I use this - http://www.burtsbees.com/natural-pro...treatment.html You put it on your hair, leave it in for a bit, and then wash & condition your hair as normal. It works great (and smells good!) Burts Bees also makes this - http://www.burtsbees.com/natural-pro...ir-treatments/ I've never used it but I've also never bought something from BB that I didn't fall in love with, haha. You can order online or do a search for a retailer in your area.. I know that Bath & Body Works and Walmart sell some of the stuff now.
