Dry, brittle hair can develop for a variety of reasons, including coloring, perming, bleaching, highlighting and straightening. While washing your hair with a moisturizing shampoo followed by a daily conditioner can be helpful, you may need even more moisture to keep your hair looking its best. A leave-in conditioner can help smooth your hair’s cuticles and prevent frizz. Golden jojoba oil, also known as liquid wax, works well as a base for homemade natural leave-in conditioners, giving your hair a shiny, glass-like finish.
