The texture of hair, when studied under a microscope can help you understand the nature of this problem in detail. Good hair strands appear a lot smoother when studied minutely. In comparison, bad hair have a shingles like appearance. These dry, frizzy and damaged hair show cracks on their surface. These dry out at uneven angles, rendering the hair unmanageable. All you need is a good conditioning routine, to take care of such hair. Conditioning helps achieve smoothness to the shingled surfaces.
For such hair conditions, one must choose conditioners meant for dry or frizzy hair. Such conditioners are thicker than one meant for normal hair. This thickness weigh down the frizzy hair and makes the hair smoother.
These conditioners are usually inexpensive. While shampooing your hair, you should apply the conditioner with the help of a wide toothed comb. Once you have waited for a few minutes, rinse the conditioner out without disturbing the hair. This conditioning will leave the hair smooth and slippery.
Conditioners for dry hair work the best when used with shampoos meant for dry and frizzy hair. These shampoos help cleanse without robbing the hair’s natural oils. One must also avoid frequent shampooing as frequent application of shampoos strip the hair of the natural oils. A bi weekly use of shampoo is enough. In case you feel the need to clean your hair more often, you can avoid use of shampoo and wash your hair after application of a conditioner (again with the help of a wide toothed comb).
Another problem commonly faced is damaged hair. Reconstructive or deep conditioners come to rescue here. Such conditioners have a mud like texture. These have to be applied on the hair for a loner time than the normal conditioners.
