Thank u. 



Rough hair = coarse hair OR damaged hair.  When hair feels rough to the touch it means the cuticle is not closing completely.  This can means also your hair is naturally curly, wavy, kinky and forms a cylinder rather than closing smoothly. 

Also...long hair, because it's older, can get damaged easier.

Consider these options:

1.  Only wash your hair once a week.  If you need to deal with oily spots, use a home made dry shampoo made from cornstarch.  Do NOT USE Baby powder or talc.  It can be toxic to your lungs.  Only use baby powder if it is 100% cornstarch.  Make sure there are no other toxic ingredients.

2.  When you shampoo...only use lukewarm water...not HOT...which causes the cuticle to be agitated and remain open.  It also dehydrates hair.

3.  Use a dilute version of shampoo OR only wash with conditioner.  To make a modified shampoo, mix 1/2 teaspoon of your favorite shampoo with 1 quart of lukewarm water in a clean plastic jug.  Shake well. 

4.  In the shower get hair very wet.  Drizzle the shampoo mixture over the top of your hair.  Let it flow down your strands.  Pat the suds into your wet strands.  Focus on the dirty areas of your hair.  Do not rub hair.  Pat, pat, pat.

5.  Rinse well.

6.  Apply a rinse out conditioner for your hair type & texture.  Focus on the parts which are most dry or rough.  Leave on for at least 1 minute.  Use your fingers and/or a smooth comb to detangle while you are in the shower.  Start at the bottom of your hair and slowly work up the shaft to the roots. Do not pull.

7.  Rinse well. 

8.  Finish with a cool to cold water rinse.  This closes the cuticle and makes it smooth.

9.  Towel blot to remove excess water.  Do not rub. 

10.  Use a smooth comb and detangle slowly working from the ends to the roots.

11.  Apply a leave-in spray or cream or gel (whatever you prefer for your hair) - to the palms of your hands.  Massage well and then rake the product through your hand from the ends up to the roots focusing on the parts which are most rough.

12.  Air dry if possible. 

If not use a blow dryer on a cool/cold, slow setting. 

13.  When blow drying  direct the air flow of the blow dryer down the shaft of your hair from the roots to the ends rather than the other way.  Use a 100% boar bristle paddle style brush in conjunction with the blow dryer to smooth the outside cuticle.

14.  When hair is 100% dry, allow to cool down.

15.  Use a tiny bit of hair serum applied to the palms of your hands (or a spray) and gently swipe over the outside of the hair.  This will close and smooth the cuticle.

You can also do pre and post hair conditioning treatments which will help.  However, the list of steps above will help a LOT with rough cuticles or dry strands.

Good Luck.

You can also use aloe vera jelly. it’s a natural product, so you don’t have to worry about side effects, and this product is easily available in the market. You have to use 2-3 days in a week after that you get silky and shiny hair.

Excellent suggestion.  Thanks so much.  I love all kinds of hair recipes which use eggs.
