My hair has became so dry these last days and it drives me crazy. Do you have some natural remedies or oils I can apply on my hair everyday or before shower?

I sure do.
When I was younger my aunt dyed my hair red for the first time. RED!! Haha.
Anyways, I did not like it so I had to bleach my hair and dye it to get it back to my natural blonde.
A hair dying addiction began...
I've been every shade of blonde, brunette, and even black. That is a lot of bleaching.
My hair eventually was so damaged that it got really thin. And it felt like straw.
So I started to research to find what would work for damaged hair.
One thing was shampooing. Are you aware that shampoo is a big reason to damaged hair and thinning?
So, I started trying things that'll work. And here is what it is.
DON'T- Shower with hot water, hot water is actually very damaging for not only hair but skin as well.
Water should be slightly warm.
DON'T- Switch from one temperature to another. Always stick at one which should (Like I said) be slightly warm.
DON'T- Shampoo your hair daily. Shampooing strips the natural oil from our scalp which helps protect it and keep it moisturized.
Realistically, you should only be shampooing once a week.
DO- Use conditioner. Instead of shampoo, use conditioner to when you want to wash your hair. It doesn't strip your natural oils but it does clean your hair. But, make sure you rinse your hair VERY well. Or it will weight your hair down and make it feel unwashed.
DO- USE a dry shampoo if your hair is feeling not so fresh or weighted down. It is amazing for those no poo days.
DO- Use coconut oil. Coconut has so many amazing benefits to not only the hair but skin as well.
Use it as a deep conditioner overnight with a cap over it to protect your pillow/bedding. You can either use the oil alone or mix it in with a deep conditioning treatment.
DO- Use natural possibly organic, SLS, Sulfate, Silicone, paraben free hair products.
There are many that are VERY affordable.
DO- Get your hair trimmed to get rid of all of the split ends because if you don't, the split ends will keep working thier way up and cause more damage. You should be getting it trimmed slightly once a month until your hair recovers.
Also, try to limit styling products and heat (Blow drying, straightening, curling).
And, make sure you're taking a multi vitamin daily and drinking AT LEAST 3 liters of water per day and are eating healthy. Try to limit junk as much as possible.
Do all of this, and you will start to see great results.
But don't expect it right away.
Hair will always take some time to get back to its natural gloriou3
