    Start by trying the CG method. I started by washing my hair less and using co-washing (cond. only) as my method of choice. Stop using things that have mineral oil or petroleum in them...they tend to dry our hair out.

    As far as condishes go, try to start with Herbal Essences Hello Hydration, VO5, Aussie or the like. Most of the condishes I use come from the drug store! I also started off using an oil to seal my ends (like Dr. Miracles or something), but I started using healthier oils (olive, etc.) once I started learning about hair health. Also, be wary (not necessarily totally avoid) of proteins (this is in most of the cond. I mention above). My hair likes the protein and I tend to not use protein in my weekly deep treatments. DT every week if you can. I think I started off with the Olive oil pak (found @ Rite Aid or any drug store).

    Lastly, protective style it up if you can! That means roller sets, braids, twists, etc. Try as much as possible to keep heat out of it cause that will just damage it more. There is so much to learn and by reading the other hair boards, that should help even more. HTH and good luck!
