If you know that your hair looks dry, try this at-home conditioner. After shampooing your hair as normal, wring out the excess water, apply the conditioner of your choice, and cover your hair with a shower cap until the conditioner has a chance to absorb – usually five to ten minutes. The heat that generates under the shower cap will help the conditioner penetrate the follicles of your hair.
When drying your hair, try to avoid using a blow-dryer. Using heat to style the hair can cause damage and frizziness. Instead, wrap wet hair inside a towel for a while. Doing this will let your hair dry naturally, leading to healthy looking hair.
Don’t abuse your hair using a towel if it is wet. This includes rubbing and tugging. Not only will this cause damage to your hair at the roots, but it will also stretch the hair and cause it become frizzy and thin. Instead of rubbing, pat your hair dry and gently squeeze the moisture out of your hair. Then wrap it in a towel, if you wish. You should also avoid brushing or combing it while it’s wet, unless you use a wide-toothed comb.
A balanced diet full of protein, vitamin and minerals is the best way to make sure your hair stays healthy. Your hair is alive, and it needs the proper nutrients to nourish its growth. If you are experiencing a nutrient deficiency, you can have weak and brittle hair that does not look good. You may even lose hair as a result of a serious deficiency. For the best hair health, eat a healthy diet.
If your hair has become dull, you may need to use a clarifying shampoo.

Clarifying shampoo used once or twice a week can remove dirt and the remnants of hair products.
When you use a blow dryer to dry your hair then you have to keep it moving around. This will keep it from drying only one spot for too long. This decreases the likelihood of getting any heat damage to your hair.
