Maybe you were born with it, maybe it's all the bleaching and styling you do.
To solve this age-old hair-care problem, we tend to indulge in lush hair masks, trot back to the hairdresser for their treatments or lather up in expensive conditioner. What if we told you the solution to super dry hair was actually much easier and cheaper than you'd expect?
The collarbone bob is the hair trend for summer that's ideal if you want to go short (but not too short)
We had a trawl through Reddit for the best tips and products for treating dry hair, as recommended by the generous users. On a thread titled "Women with dry/damaged hair, what are your favourite products that aren't ridiculously expensive?", people revealed their secrets faves for treating dry hair. Here are three of the best ones - and would you believe it, they're all under £5.
Waitrose Essential Olive Oil, £2.55
Yes, the same olive oil you use in the kitchen. That olive oil. According to Cosmo, the women of Reddit love this stuff. Pop into the pantry, slick a bit onto your ends and rinse.
"Olive oil. For real," says one Reddit user. "Also, getting regular trims. On dry hair - about a tablespoon right from the kitchen that I work through the ends/middle (my scalp doesn't have a dryness issue, so I usually avoid that area) and let it soak in for a bit, ten minutes or so, and then shampoo it out. Longer/thicker hair might need more--I'd opt for less rather than more, especially the first time."
This is why you should slather olive oil all over your skin
Garnier Food Banana 3-in-1 mask, £3.46
Hair masks can be ridiculously expensive. Not this one!
"Hair masks will help repair the shaft of the hair, I don’t personally like to use food anymore but previously I’ve used different mixtures of banana, honey, yoghurt and egg," says another Reddit user. "Store bought: Garnier Ultimate Blends’ hair food range is excellent and comes in quite cheap for a good sized pot. Once a week does the trick."
HASK Monoi Coconut Oil Nourishing Shampoo, £4.66
You can pick this one up from Boots and get change from a fiver.
"A haircut, and be careful with dying / bleaching / heat styling," says a Reddit user. "But! I love Hask's coconut oil shampoo and conditioner. Very affordable and smells lovely."
