Dry hair can be treated with some simple lifestyle changes and these simple, inexpensive home remedies for damaged hair will nourish your brittle, dry locks, leaving you with gorgeous, healthy hair.

Air-dry your hair

Instead of subjecting your hair to artificial heat via a dryer or a frequent blow dry, allow your hair to dry naturally i.e. air dry. This will help retain the natural moisture of your hair and keep it from damage that styling tools can cause.

Massage your scalp with butter

Another fuss-free dry hair treatment is a hair massage! Dry and damaged hair when massaged with butter can do you ample good. All you need is to apply butter onto your scalp and hair and give yourself a generous massage. Let it stay for not more than half an hour.

Use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner

As is the case with most products, you have to choose the one that is most suited for your hair type. Our recommendation for dry hair is the Dove Dryness Care Shampoo and Conditioner range that is enriched with Nutritive Serum, which infuses a burst of hydration into your hair.

Cover your hair

Sun, heat, wind and the pollutants in the air, can all do damage to your hair, adding to its dryness. So make sure you cover your hair either with a scarf or an umbrella when you’re venturing outdoors.

Keep yourself hydrated

Just as we drink water to keep our bodies functioning, the same applies to our hair. Drink at least 3 - 4 liters of water a day to keep yourself hydrated. This helps retain moisture in your body and also your hair.

Rinse with tea

Another way to repair damaged hair at home is with a tea rinse. After you have shampooed and conditioned your hair with products that combat dryness, it is time for a tea rinse. Chamomile or black tea, both work well to add natural shine to your hair and make the texture better.
