Here are my top Dry Natural hair remedies and treatments
1. Moisture Treatment
- Hot oil Treatment
Leaves hair so soft and full of moisture. It works very well as a Pre-Poo treatment to protect your hair from being stripped during a shampoo process. Gets rid of dry hair.
Take an applicator bottle and fill it with extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil (just enough for your hair) and place it in a pot of warm water.
Let it sit until the oils are warm. Section your hair and apply a generous amount of the oils to your hair and massage the oils into your scalp as well.
Cover your hair with a plastic cap and sit under a hooded dryer for 15 – 30 minutes depending on the length of your hair or simply leave the oils overnight and shampoo or co-wash the hair the next day.
- Hair Steaming
After you wash your hair, apply a deep conditioner or hot oil treatment and sit under a hair steamers/hooded dryers for 30 minutes.
If you don’t have a hair steamer, cover your hair with a plastic cap then wrap with a slightly damp towel.
2. Clarifying Treatments
A clarifying treatment is a treatment that is used to clean away all the product build up and gives hair a new beginning with body and shine. Make sure you don’t use them too frequently (once a month is enough) to avoid dry hair. Use it only when your hair needs it.
- Baking soda clarifying paste
(Use this only when your hair has extreme build up)
•Wet hair and apply a mixture of (¼ cup baking soda with enough water to turn it into a paste).
• Apply the mixture to your hair and scalp and leave it for about 2 minutes. It will feel a bit gritty so don’t be alarmed. Rinse well.
• Follow with a hot oil treatment and your weekly deep conditioning treatment to restore moisture back to the hair.
3. Frizzy Hair Treatments
