Dry Curly Hair..
 
# 1 : Tuesday 11-8-2020 @ 20:16
 
 
Okay to some perhaps this may seem silly,but now that my hair is finally long I struggle daily to get it soft and silk like and I wash it every morning and use certain creams aswell before leaving the house but by lunch time its like straw..I don't straighten it and I don't blow dry it just a light towel dry,and use coconut oil and smapoos for curly hair...so any advice would be fantastic...Thanks so much xx

Well for a start you shouldn't be washing it every morning because you are washing all the natural oils away and I know you probably think that because you are using shampoos and stuff (which are probably costing you a fortune) they will make it better what you are really doing is essentially replacing 50,000 years worth of evolution with something that took a year to cook up in a lab and is probably cut with more chemicals than you'd find in the average pound of heroine

Try a leave-in conditioner. Or comb some more conditioner into your hair after drying it.
The greasier the better.

Sorry my last post probably sounded dismissive, I didn't mean it to come across that way. There are other things you can do. Coconut oil is good but it is best used on damp hair not dry hair, it is better at retaining moisture not adding it and really you should only use it once a week and leave it over night. Olive oil is good to use over night once a week too but I'd recommend only using any of these if you wear a shower cap going to bed or you'll get it everywhere and the next morning wash it out only using conditioner because shampoo will just strip your hair.

Also diet makes a difference, you could take fish oils or just eat oily fish (salmon, tuna {but not from a can}, mackerel) twice a week and avocado is good too as are eggs (but I'd limit eggs to about 3 a week because of the calorie content).Most nuts have benefits but like eggs can be very fattening if you eat too much. Some people swear by Apple cider vinegar (as in putting it directly into your hair) but in my opinion it just dries it out more, I'd pretty much keep anything acidic from your hair and avoid any type of bleaching dye.

Don't wash your hair with hot water, wash it with luke warm water and then for the final rinse use cold water because when you wash with hot water the hair roots open so a quick blast of cold water will close them again and NEVER EVER brush your hair when it is wet or even damp, let it dry fully first

Wish I had that problem, going bald and gray is aging me.

Try using rain water on it. You will definitely see a difference in it. How much of a difference is hard to know.

You could always try the dry shampoo aerosol can occasionally. I'm told that works because you wash no natural oils from your hair babe.............xxx
