Shampoo for Dry Hair and Treatment at Home


Section your hair

Divide your hair into top, middle, and bottom parts.

Secure the sections

Clip the top and middle sections of your hair. Doing so will allow the treatment to penetrate the strands effectively.

Prep your DIY treatment

Mix coconut oil and olive oil in a bowl to use as hair moisturizer before shampooing.

Put it on your hair

Apply the oil evenly on the bottom section of your hair.

Apply oil on scalp

If you have dry scalp, apply the mixture on it too. Massage the scalp to spread the oil evenly and for better absorption. Don’t worry about removing the oil because your shampoo for dry hair will take care of it later.

Wrap your hair

Cover your hair with a towel that has been soaked in hot water. Make sure that your towel has a soft and smooth fabric to prevent hair breakage, frizz, and damage.

After 30 minutes, remove the towel and wash your hair with cold water.

Now, it’s time to use your shampoo for dry hair. To wash your hair properly, put TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo on your palm. Rub your palms together, then apply the shampoo on your roots.

Massage your scalp

This will promote circulation and help remove oil from your hair.
