You can start by going over how you treat your hair and find the reason for the damage. If the damage is from using a blow dryer or hot iron everyday, consider a style that is easier to take care of. If you are bleaching your hair, think about using a darker color that is gentler on your hair. You can even use house hold items to make natural hair dyes. For example, an equal mix of beet and carrot juice can produce a red hair tint. Whatever the problem is, you must eliminate it.

You can use Soybean, Jojoba or a sweet smelling lavender oil to smooth out hair. To get the best result, apply these remedies directly to your hair and leave them on for as long as you can. It is best to do this before you go to sleep. Leave the solution on overnight. Make sure to wear a shower cap or plastic hat. Or you can get the same result quickly by sitting under a hair dryer with the solution on your head for 30 minutes. Set the dryer on a warm setting.
