For Dry Hair

This is the Hair type that needs to be conditioned more often. You Hair is lacking moisture and hydration. It is dry, brittle and life less all the time. One of the best way to tame your frizzy and dry hair is my conditioning it the right way and more often.

For Dry hair, it it more important to focus on the quality of conditioning, rather than the number of times. Use more conditioning and hydrating mask like egg hair mask, fenugreek hair mask and avacado hair mask more often to control frizz and dryness. Use only mild shampoo to wash your hair.
