I tried using Honey & it was excellent...
put few drops on yor hair & scalp for ~ 1\2 to 1 hour & rinse with water daily till feel improvement...
you can also use a plant called " Henna" (use dried powder) & you will feel the difference.
If you tried it.. tell us about the result.

Maybe try a coconut oil treatment.

Warm up some coconut oil in a saucepan, add a few drops of essential oil if you choose, a vitamin E pill if you choose, ( pierce with a pin and empty the capsule into the pan ), warm gently.

Massage into your hair, from scalp to ends. Leave on for a good hour, more if you have time, with a plastic bag over your head. I did this all the time in the days when I dyed it.

Hope this helps you.

Coconut Oil works really well. Also do lots of deep treatments...and don't shampoo every day.

Id say try some masks.. Dove mask for example makes my hair nice.
If not just go and buy some treatments or go to the hairdresser and get them to give you treatments.

Monoi Tiare Tahiti-it's the BEST coconut oil in the world with plumeria flower in it. I always order it online. It's @ $7. a bottle and lasts a long time

Pantene Pro V has a three minute deep conditioner that works wonders!! Also, V05 hot oil treatments work well and you can do it all in your shower and buy it at the grocery store!

Re: how can you change dry hair into soft hair?

I have a friend who has the most beautiful hair I ever seen. It is black, and when the light reflects off it, you can see diferent shades of blue. I asked one day, what do you use to make your hair look so beautiful, her answer suprised me, Mayo.After she washes her hair, she conditions it with mayo, wraps hair in a baggie and towel for 10 min and then rinses it out. She said it will take a couple of times to determine how much is needed to for different hair. She used about a tablespoon of mayo.

Wink Re: how can you change dry hair into soft hair?

lemon juice is a nice at home remedy about 1/2 a cup of lemon and 1 cup warm water... leave on for about 20 min. it naturally balances the ph of your hair. otherwise try a PROFESSIONAL deep condotioner they work AMAZING! some salons sell them for as little as 6 bucks for two treatments... silkening leave-in treatments from a salon are really nice also.
