Dry hair can be caused by the chemicals used in coloring, bleaching and highlighting. It can also be caused by too much heat, whether from the sun or from electric appliances such as curlers and blow dryers.
Try these tips and remedies to give your hair body and shine quickly and easily!
To add a beautiful shine to your hair dilute apple-cider vinegar in water (one part vinegar to seven parts water) and rinse your hair with it after you shampoo. A vinegar rinse is great for over-processed hair, and it can also liven up a tired perm.
Many hair-care experts say that mayonnaise makes a good overall conditioner. Rub it into your hair, then leave it on for about 5 minutes, before shampooing it out thoroughly.
Don't use hair tools too often
Overuse of electric curlers, blow dryers, curling irons, straighteners etc. damages and dries out hair. If you're using these tools every day then your haircut isn't working for you. Try a different cut or even a loose perm etc. If you do use a blow dryer, try and use one with no more than 1,000 watts, and reduce the temperature and power level as your hair dries.
Use your fingers
Instead of using a blow dryer, gently fluff and style your hair with your fingers as it dries, always lifting the hair up off the scalp. Bending over as you do this allows gravity to contribute to extra fullness.
