Anything cheap that helps dry hair?

My hair's just a bit dry all over, really. Had all the scraggly ends lopped off this morning and am really happy with the cut but could do with something to remoisturise it a bit, but it can't be expensive.

Herbal essences has been suggested by a few people but I had a nasty reaction to it a few months ago so not keen to try it again.

Really don't want to spend a lot (well, I'd love to, but I can't afford to).

try aussie miracle moist. it's currently on offer at £6 for two bottles. i have dry hair and cheaper brands like herbal essences are just rubbish and leave my hair matted. this stuff does the job ok.

I swear by Fructis, the sleek and shine one for frizzy hair is good.

Warm olive oil, wrap cling-film round your head, leave it on half an hour, then wash.

Or do same as sloggies suggests with coconut oil. I can guarantee soft hair with it!

was going to say a towel or hair dryer until I read the rest of your post grin

agree with glub for me the only cheap conditioner which works for me is Aussie Miracle Moist or Take The Heat for every day.

Kerastace is great if you want to spend a bit more - about £17 I think it is.

Look for no or low sulfate shampoos. Or even baby shampoos if its really really dry.

You may have to cut out silicones as well to prevent buildup

Thanks, will try the olive oil thing too, and look out for no sulfate.

Haha, sorry funnys! Didn't phrase that very well, did I?

I agree with oil and also a leave in conditioner. The Aussie one is quite good.

Can vouch for oil too, if you use olive a drop or two of essential oil will stop you smelling like salad.
