• Gentle Shampooing: Use a moisturizing or hydrating shampoo specifically formulated for dry rough hair. Look for shampoos that contain ingredients like glycerin, argan oil, shea butter, or coconut oil. Avoid shampoos with sulfates as they can strip natural oils from your hair and exacerbate dryness.
  • Conditioning: Follow up with a rich, hydrating conditioner. Apply it from mid-length to the ends of your hair, focusing on the driest areas. Leave the conditioner on for 5 minutes to allow it to penetrate the hair shaft and provide moisture. Rinse thoroughly with cool water.
  • Deep Conditioning Treatment: Once a week, treat your hair to a deep conditioning treatment or hair mask. Look for products that are designed to provide intense hydration and repair dry, damaged hair. Apply the treatment generously to clean, damp hair and leave it on for the recommended time before rinsing.

My Homemade Deep Conditioning treatment


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 small fully ripe avocado
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of shea butter

Grind all ingredients together, apply the deep conditioning treatment, and leave on for 30 minutes to 1 hour to work its magic.

  • Avoid Overwashing: Try to limit washing your hair to 2-3 times per week. Overwashing can strip away natural oils, leading to further dryness. On non-wash days, you can use a dry shampoo to freshen up your hair without stripping away moisture.
  • Use Cold Water: When washing your hair, use cold water instead of hot water. Hot water can strip away natural oils and contribute to dryness.
  • Pat Dry, Don’t Rub: After washing your hair, gently pat it dry with a soft towel instead of rubbing vigorously. Rubbing can cause friction and damage to the hair cuticle, leading to breakage and further dryness.
  • Protect from Heat Styling: Minimize the use of heat styling tools like flat irons, curling irons, and blow dryers, as excessive heat can further dry out your hair. If you must use heat styling tools, use a heat protectant spray or serum to minimize damage.
  • Protect from the Sun: UV rays can also contribute to dryness and damage, so it’s essential to protect your hair when spending time outdoors. Wear a hat or use hair products containing UV filters to shield your hair from the sun’s harmful rays.
  • Hydrate from Within: Remember to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and eating a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals essential for healthy hair, such as vitamin E, biotin, and omega-3 fatty acids.
