Evo mane prescription and oil baths. A good multivitamin, fish oil & a good trim. Make sure you are using shampoo and conditioner prescribed by a stylist.

Avoid washing your hair as much as possible (every 2-3 days, longer if you can), this will retain the natural oils your hair needs.  Overnight coconut oil treatments works really well also.

I was told the other day that the key to getting the moisure INTO your hair is by using a product high in protein! I have a Protein spray by DeLorenzo that I swear by, I spray it in after I shampoo and leave it for 1min then put my treatment or conditioner in 🙂

Dry hair girl over here! 

I use coconut oil, ONLY from mid length down to the ends, not on my scalp. I’ll put some in 20-30 mins before my shower sometimes or I’ll leave it in overnight. Then I just wash it out…now with coconut oil you HAVE to use conditioner for it to fully get out of your hair. Idk why but it works for me. If I dont do that I’m left with greasy ends. Just shampoo normally and definitely conditioner to get it out completely.

Once a month, I use coconut oil with a bit of rosemary and tea tree oil in it. I apply it to dry hair, root to tip, wrap my head in a plastic bag and blast it with a blow dryer for 5 minutes, then wrap my head in a thick towel to hold in th heat. Afterwards I shampoo twice with a clarifying shampoo and then use my normal conditioner. 

Once a week I use a Macadamia Mask from Sally’s.

I work with a dusty product that makes everything dry.  Kind of like those silica gel packets you find in shoes and purses, but ground into a fine powder…basically, my hair gets dried out easily.

I have long hair, and have been growing it out for a few years and the dryness caused it to break easily and appear to stop growing.  I use Lee Stafford Hair Growth treatment (found at Ulta) that basically is like a conditioning hair mask.  I use it 2-3 times a week when I wash my hair, and I’ve noticed a hige difference in the health of my hair.  

Other tips-don’t wash your hair often.  It actually dries it out more. I can get by with not washing my hair for 3-4 days depending on what I’m doing.  I use Batiste Dry shampoo for Brunettes. 

Try to incorporate more fish like Salmon or Tuna into your diet.

I have tried olive oil and coconut oil treatments, but ended up having to wash my hair 3x to get the oils out, so it kind of negated the purpose.  I may have used too much maybe, but like I said my hair is super long so it kind of required a lot.

jelly3:  Former dry hair lady over here! This is what I did – use Moroccan Oil every time you wash your hair. Get shampoo and conditioner from your hair stylist. Do a deep conditioning treatment every week. I use coconut oil and leave it in while I clean my apartment (2 hours min). Sometimes I leave it in overnight but be careful if you do that cause if you don’t wrap your head it will get over your entire bed.

And the key – hair trims every 6 weeks!

jelly3:  I found that it helps to only wash my hair twice a week and dry shampoo the off days as needed.  When I do wash my hair, I condition normally (purple conditioner for my blonde hair) and rub argan oil into my hair from mid-length to tips (pretty much what would be in a ponytail if you pulled your hair into a high pony).  If my hair is dry on a non-washing day, I’ll rub a little bit of the oil in those days as well.  I also try not to heat style my hair every day, but it’s difficult!!  Taking biotin and fish oil pills helps me too.

jelly3:  I only wash my hair maybe twice a week. So I go about 3-4 days between washing which really helps your hair produce a normal amount of oil and balances it out. If you’re washing every single day, you’re stripping out your hairs natural oils and it will leave your hair pretty dry.

I used to do coconut oil about once a week. Just put it all over my head, let it sit for about an hour and then wash my hair after (usually had to wash twice to get the oil out) but that did wonders on my hair and it grew like a weed when I was doing it.

Make sure you’re using good hair products (something with protein helps but don’t use it every single time you wash). Redken or pureology are good brands if you can afford them.

Now I use enjoy hair oil and I just put a tiny bit on the length of my hair (not the roots) each night and usually by morning my hair has soaked it up and looks amazing and moisturized. I have REALLY dry hair and all these things have really helped out. Good luck!

jelly3:  I have had nearly booty length hair for a few years now & this routine keeps it looking great & moisturized:

-Wash no more than 2-3 times a week, heat styling as little as possible-use dry shampoo on the alternate days

-coconut oil deep overnight conditioning once a week (wash it out in the AM- I usually have to wash/rinse/repeat at least twice to get it all out)

-argan oil when wet before drying, and as needed daily

my mom used to whip up an egg mixture when I was little that she swore by too, but I haven’t done that in years & don’t remember much about it…

My trick is to wash with conditioner on the days you aren’t using shampoo. This helps avoid that dirty hair feeling, while not stripping the hair.

jelly3:  I’d recommend washing (only 2-3x/wk if possible) with a sulfate free shampoo and doing an overnight oil treatment (coconut and olive work equally well, IMO). As a PP suggested, if you feel you must wet/wash your hair every day, you can alternate using sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. Also go easy on the heat styling. If you can do blowdry/flat iron 1x/week max I recommend that as well.
