Deep conditioning for your hair – Use a hair conditioner which is specifically made for dry rough mane. It should have keratin in it. Apply the conditioner generously and keep it on for few minutes. Let the conditioner absord in the shaft of the hair and this would soften your hair. For the first three weeks, deep condition your hair at least 2 times. And keep the conditioner on your hair at least for 10 minutes before you wash it off.
Also avoid washing your hair regularly. Water makes the hair dry.
Use hair dryer after conditioning - Pick a hair conditioner which has cetyl alcohol. Cetly alcohol is an ultrarich fatty acid which holds in the moisture on the hair. Put conditioner on the hair through a comb and then blow dry your hair. After this, rinse it off.

Then wrap up your hair with the hot towels. This procedure of deep conditioning the hair should be done at least once a week.
Trim off the damaged hair – If you want to repair your damaged hair, the best way is to trim it. If you want a good shape of the hair, go for trimming after every 3 weeks. And avoid using curling irons, flat irons etc. Any kind of processing on the hair should be avoided if your hair is already damaged. Relaxers are very harsh on the hair, so are bleach, permanent coloring agents. For damaged hair, highlights are better option rather than full coloring of hair. And if you want darker shade go for glaze and not dye. And if you have gray hair and want to cover it up, demi-permanent formulae is best for your mane then.
