Tips for treating dry and damaged hair include using a moisturizing shampoo and a deep conditioner. There are also several natural treatments that help damaged hair, such as mashed avocado and olive oil.
Redken All Soft Shampoo and Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo are two options for treating damaged hair. These shampoos are full of fatty acids that soften the hair.
For a more natural option, try coating the hair with mashed avocado. Leave it on for 20 minutes, and then wash it out. Alternatively, coat hair with warm olive oil and cover it with a shower cap and towel. Rinse after 45 minutes.
Another way to treat damaged hair is to use a deep conditioner once a week. Pantene Pro-V 2-Minute Moisture Hair Masque Deep Conditioner makes the hair smooth and covers damaged follicles.
