I have naturally thick and dry hair. I've had it highlighted 3 times before, but that made my hair worse so I stopped having highlights put in. Now I find it really hard to make my hair look smooth/shiny. Its naturally curly as well, which doesn't help. Does anyone have any ideas?
Ive used loads of conditioners, hair masks, shampoos and sprays. Nothings worked yet. Apart from conditioner out of hair dye packets, that I used to get off my mum when she died her hair, but she doesn't dye it any more. So I'm stuck.

Most salons have a service called glossing that'll make it nice and shiny. I also have naturally thick/ curly hair but I straighten it a lot. If you go to a beauty supply store, they sell the big bottles of the conditioner that comes with hair dye. I also got these recipes out of Hair Style Guide Magazine that sound odd and gross but work!
To control thick locks: Mix 1/2 cup of Rosemary leaves, 1 cup of water and 1/2 bottle of your shampoo of choice. Lather up with a capful or two, then rinse for clean, vibrant, hair. Store the rest for use as needed.
To soothe dry strands: Mash 1 avocado, adding it to 1 cup of Coconut milk until the consistency is that of a conditioner. Apply and leave on for at least 5-10 minutes. RInse thoroughly for shiny, hydrated hair.
Try these out and I hope they work well for you! (Styling serum also works wonders, but don't use too much or it will look greasy)1
