pantene or loreal...put conditioner on mid lengths to ends avoid scalp and roots as this may encourage greasiness...place a hand towel in tumble dryer and warm it up..place over your head for 10 mins....perfect everytime

Boots do a brand called Naked something or other that comes in a big white tub.

Its about £10 but will last for ages.

Leave on hair for 30 mins wrapped in a warm towel and your tresses will be flaxen.

I like the Aveda hair repair range. Expensive but they do actually work on my coloured hair

I like the Aussie ones too - but if you want something a bit different... Mash avocado and Banana into some intensive conditioner and paste on, leave for 15 mins and rinse out (thoroughly!)

Another good tip is to wrap your conditioner-laden hair in clingfilm before the warm towel, keeps it that bit warmer allowing the cuticles to open and moisture to get in

I have tried loads of these (incl the aussie one) for my dry coloured hair and the only one that has worked so far is this molton brown one
It was fab
like having new hair
blardy expensive though, I had some little sachets i had nicked from a hotel but I think I will invest in it

CountessDracula Mon 18-Aug-08 23:15:30

oh I left for 15 mins (as it says in the tips) not the 3-5 mins on teh front page

Are you conditioning every time you wash and using shampoo conditioner for coloured hair? (I think this makes a difference) I use GHD and their mask for dry coloured hair is great. Wash, squeeze hair dry, apply mask, wrap in cling film, cover with towel and leave for 15/20 mins. Rinse well and finish with a cool/cold water rinse. You could always try an in salon treatment. Vidal Sassoon does an amazing deep conditioning treatment for coloured hair which you can still feel working after a few washes.

Beer? Rinse hair with it that is, not drink it!

Egg yolk and olive oil... apply to dry hair, wrap head in clingfilm and leave on as long as possible. To rinse off apply shampoo straight to hair, no water, then rinse with cool water and shampoo normally again. Give a final rinse with a jug of water with a dash of vinegar in it.
Of the shop bought ones the naked range is great, and very good if you are at all sesitive.
