Dry hair - Treatment

Dry hair looks very dry and brittle and breaks easily with split ends.
This type requires combing many times to help the flow of the natural oils from the glands to the ends of hair to maintain the smoothness.
Take a little oil in your hands and spread that into the hair from top to bottom and then comb out the hair. The hair will not break and will also have a shine.
Massaging is a must for this kind of hair. Warm either coconut or olive oil. Massage into your scalp with your fingertips without hurting your skin with your nails.
Then give your hair a hot towel treatment. Dip a towel in hot water, squeeze out the excess water and tie the towel around your head. Repeat this process, atleast 5-6 times or till your hair feels nice and soft and the scalp tingles. Half an hour to one hour later you can have your bath.
If you can do this regularly atleast once a week your hair will not have the problem of dryness and will grow nicely without breaking.
Select a mild shampoo, like egg based shampoos. You can choose one with a conditioner.
Get your hair trimmed once in every 3 months to ward off split ends.
Do not perm or bleach unless needed very badly. Regular use of drier for drying the hair also will affect your hair health.
Home remedies for dry hair:
Take 2 tablespoons of curd and one egg yolk. Mix it well and apply on your scalp thoroughly. This pack will help soften your hair and will give a silky look.
While using henna for conditioing have oil massage and then apply henna. Or add a teaspoonful oil to the henna mix so that your hair will not get dry after you shampoo.
If your hair is very dry, mix milk and one egg and apply to your scalp. Wash it off with a mild shampoo. You can use this twice a week to get soft hair.
