I’ve had this same problem a few times. The main problems could be washing it too much…I washed my hair every second day and I was told not to by my hairdresser because it was stripping my scalp of oil. It’;s important not to wash your hair too much because this strips away the oil your scalp and hair needs to be healthy. It could also be your diet – make sure you are eating plenty of veggies and fruits, and flax seed oil is fantastic as well.

I’ve tried a great mask just last week for silky, healthy hair – Combine one egg, a couple tablespoons olive oil, one avacado and a little yogurt. Mix well and apply to wet hair (this allows the nutrients to penetrate better) and leave on for about a halff hour. Rinse and shampoo/condition as normal :) your hair should feel strong, healthy and look shiny.

I was the same way! I would dye my hair every month and had all kinds of colors, from black to red to purple to blond…you name it, I had it && I would curl or straighten my hair everyday so by now my hair is SUPER dead but I like to do a hair mask, try anything that has Henna in it, you can get a little pauch for about $2 at any CVS, I also like using the shampoos for horses (Tail & Main) it really helps! I take Biotin daily (take it at night, your body absorbs it better) and I don’t do anything with heat anymore, I let my hair air dry and I go all natural!
I see a huge differance in my hair, and they’re thicker too (I have VERY thin hair)

GOOD LUCK!

I don’t have dry hair, but I do have oily hair! It’s gotten a lot better now that I’ve switched to baby shampoo and stopped using conditioner because after numerous research, the oils on my hair act as a “conditioner.”

With that in mind, just like what others suggest, maybe you could invest in a really good shampoo and sometimes harsh shampoos (usually the ones that smell super good!) are the worse! Also, I’ve heard Moroccan oil does well with some gals!

Hm, I just remembered my friend has super dry hair and she says that sometimes it comes into a frizzball (she’s Chinese) and she has to straighten it (weird since I thought heat with dry hair makes it drier!). But she said straightening it (with the ions and stuff, so make sure you use ceramic – it’s less drying) helped her dry hair – temporarily.

Good luck! Here’s a site that I discovered that seems to be a good way of relieving the dryness in the hair, naturally! 10 Home Remedies For Dry Hair

I found some super conditioning stuff at any store that has hair products called 3 Minute mask by Garnier Fructis. Other brands have it, i’m not sure how they work but it does add moisture and softness to my hair.
Also,
Since I have curly dry hair, I try to style my hair with cremes rather than mouse or sprays which adds more moisture!

What worked very well for a friend of mine with dry hair was using argan oil.
She also only uses shampoos that don’t contain parabens or sls (sls is a very strong industrial grade soap ingredient that will dry out your hair insanely). Say yes to cucumbers is the brand she used, but there are a lot of them out there.

I’ve been there – I have naturally very curly and DRY hair, so I’ve had to learn the tricks. The secret seems to be to AVOID silicones in shampoos and conditioners (just use them with leave-in conditioners to seal the ends) and opt for keratin conditioners. The silicones (dimethicone and anything with -cone ending) form a film on the hair which doesn’t let anything good inside the hair, but it “masks” the hair to look more healthy when it really isn’t.

Keratin is something the hair and our nails have naturally, and it is what gets damaged. With keratin conditioners such as Joico K-Pak Deep Repair or Mill Creek’s you can repair your hairs natural state!

Using keratin can be sometimes tricky, as it needs hydration in order to work, so I mix it up with really moisturising conditioners. Then just leave it, anywhere from 5 minutes to one hour, rinse and tadaa, soft, healthy hair!

When you pick your conditioner, make sure keratin or hydrolized keratin is among the top ingredients on the list, the very top five I’d say, to make sure there’s enough of it.

Using coconut oil and heating it, then massaging it into your scalp and over your hair would help :) It’s called a hot oil massage.

Don’t wash it everyday. It will feel gross to begin with but if your hair is super dry, no one will notice. Also condition it everyday and set aside one day a week (I chose Sunday) to do a full and thorough condition using a heatmask or something. Don’t use heat on it unless you are going to a special event. Try not to blow dry it either.

Heat a little olive oil, put it on your hair and let it for about 30 minutes. This will hydrate your hair so much ! And also when you wash your hair do not wash it in a aggressive way.

The absolute best product that I can recommend to you is Moroccan Oil. I’ve turned a few of my friends onto it and they report back within a couple of days that their hair is totally transformed and feeling better. I have ombre hair and a lot of bleach on the ends of my hair, and my hair has never felt so soft.

If you try the Organix brand, it’s very cheap and a little goes a long way. :)

I use this mixture on my hair, and it does wonders. “Homemade” deep conditioners are the best, but different ingredients are better for different people. This might work for you until your figure out your own:

Coconut oil (this stuff by itself is an amazing conditioner!), olive oil, honey, and that conditioner that comes in a tube with hair dye (it’s the best store-bought conditioner I’ve ever used). I can’t remember all the brands I’ve tried, but I know Loreal is a good brand.

If you leave it in for a while and let it soak in before you wash it out, it works even better. Also, don’t use shampoo on the ends of your hair. The ends are far away from your scalp, so they don’t get as much natural oil. Only use conditioner on the ends. Shampoo washes out the oils and makes the hair even dryer. If you can, also use a cone-free shampoo. V05, Suave, and White Rain are a few brands, and you can get them for as cheap as $1.

Make sure you're eating enough healthy fats - hair on a low-fat diet just generally doesn't look as good!

One of the best ways to maintain dry frizzy hair is to hydrate it on a regular basis. Try to avoid over washing your hair, as this action can strip hair of its natural oils. Do not forget to use some type of lotion, serum or spray before using hot appliances. Also, stay away from blow dryers as much as possible and laways use professional hair care products only. A healthy and balanced diet is also essential for healthy hair. Eat lot of fresh fruits and vegetables to get all necessary nutrients. It is also essential to avoid dehydration causing substances like coffee and alcohol. Now, you are free to use these tips to get shiny and healthy hair naturally.

I've heard that hair oil helps a lot with dry ends. You can also DIY it and just put some olive oil at the tips of your hair to add moisture.

 

Hope that helps!! Good luck!
