Dry Hair – Causes and Treatment


Dry hair is a cause of great tension for most people. No one wants dry hair! Those having dry hair desperately want to get rid of it. Avoid the usage of hair dryers and heat-styling equipment. Always cover your hair when going out to prevent exposure to sun or wind. If the scalp is not oily, it’s better not to wash hair daily. Even pollution makes our hair dry and rough. In that case we need to take extra care of our hair. Always use organic shampoos and conditioners and a deep-conditioning treatment should be used at least once a week.

Effective Home Remedies for Dry Hair

Warm oil massage

It’s the best treatment. Crush four to five almonds and add it to ½ cup coconut oil. Warm this mixture. Now apply this mixture to your hair and scalp. Wrap your hair with a towel and keep it wrapped for 30mins. Wash your hair with shampoo.

Olive Oil

Olive oil is the most popular home remedy for dry hair. The rich vitamin E and antioxidant content present in olive oil help heal damaged hair by sealing the cuticle, or outer layer, with moisture. Olive oil can be used as a hot oil hair treatment to strengthen, add shine and restore moisture to very dry hair.

Banana nourishing pack

Make a paste of banana and curd by mixing two mashed bananas and ½ cup of beaten curd. Apply the paste thoroughly to the scalp and hair, and make a kind of bun of your hair. Leave this paste on the hair for 15 minutes only. Now shampoo your hair. You will notice the dramatic change in the texture of the hair.

Yogurt for Dry Hair

While it is always good to include plain yogurt in your diet due to its innumerable health benefits, you can even think of applying the same to your dry frizzy hair to give them deep conditioning. If you have ever heard of protein treatments for hair, beauty salons use yogurt and eggs etc. to give these highly expensive protein treatment to your dry hair.

Egg tonic

We all know eggs are rich in proteins and our hair needs proteins the most. In one cup of milk, beat one egg. Add lemon juice squeezed from a lemon. To this shortening add a teaspoon of olive oil. Massage your hair and scalp well with the mixture.(You can use yoghurt in place of milk.) Wrap a moist, warm towel around the head. Leave your hair in this condition for one hour. Rinse your hair well. In the last rinse, use some lime juice added to the rinsing water.


The saturated fats, vitamins A and E, protein and various other minerals in avocado are highly beneficial for dry and damaged hair. Avocado also helps add moisture to dry hair shafts and strengthen your hair.
