Dry hair requires constant care and nourishment, otherwise, it becomes brittle and damaged.

From Briohny:

For dry conditioning

Mix a quality conditioner with half the juice of a fresh lemon and leave in for 15-20 mins then rinse.

From Sara

Start oiling your thin and dry hair with almond oil mixed with coconut oil at least twice a week.
After massaging it into your scalp and hair, apply juice of two lemons and steam for about seven-eight minutes.

Thank you ladies!

I had to do some research on "hair steaming" and aside from professional apparatus used in salons, at home this means wrapping your hair with a warm, damp towel, a towel which you have soaked in hot water or simply putting on a shower cap after you have applied any of the recipes.

What steaming does is that it opens up the pores and allows the scalp to absorb all the good nutrients.
