Afro Maintenance (10)

1 Name: Anonymous Stylist : 2007-12-04 23:11 ID:EUHKjMU/

My problem is that I live in Alaska which has very hard water. Every time I wash my hair (using shampoo and conditioner) it just makes my hair more dried out. I have a huge problem with dandruff also. Now, I just have totally stopped washing my hair with water and don't even get it wet anymore in the shower. Is there anything I can use to wash my hair so that I won't have this dandruff problem and combat this hard water problem?

You could buy a water softener.

Try different shampoos. LIke Got2B and Frutis.

Having a semi-afro too, how do I sort of "settle" it down? It's not tightly curled, but it's very frizzy and shit.

Also in semi-cold climate.

I pick it everyday. My scalp is still dry as fuck.
I think that almost every shampoo out today is for people with straight hair (at least that is what I always see in commercials). I will try a new shampoo though.
Try straightening it but then you cannot get it wet. If that doesn't work try getting a relaxer and also deep conditioning it (get a leave in conditioner and put on a heating cap with the conditioner on your hair and leave it on for a hour or so then wash). If all else fails, go to a hair salon (if you can, one for african hair styles).
