Use natural ingredients for a deep-conditioning treatment.
Problem: Daily heat styling, constant chemical processing, over-shampooing, and frequent exposure to the sun and wind can dry out long hair.
Solution: A natural conditioner can offer an alternative cure for repairing dry hair. Simmer together one cup of milk, one cup of water, and dried rose petals. Allow mixture to cool and pour into a blender. Add a ripe avocado and two teaspoons each of honey and almond paste or almond oil (without alcohol). Blend ingredients together. Massage "conditioner" into locks section by section, wrap hair in plastic, and rinse after 30 minutes.
Long-term solution: Keep blow-drying to a minimum, avoid overlapping chemical treatments, skip a shampoo day, and protect hair from the sun with a hat.
