Is there an inexpensive hair moisturizer for dry hair?

Safflower Oil Hair Moisturizer

Is your hair dying of thirst? Hair normally has a moisture content of about 10%. If your hair is dry, frizzy, permed, color-treated, or relaxed, there's a good chance the moisture content has dropped below this level.

Safflower oil (the kind you cook with) can increase your hair's ability to attract and retain moisture. Place 1 or 2 drops of safflower oil in your palms, rub them together so they shine, and carefully scrunch your hair (while dry), working the oil to the ends first, then toward the scalp. Leave the oil in your hair (you won't notice it's there). Keep in mind that a small amount goes a long way.

Tames that dry fly-away look of my white hair. It works well inside our bodies, why not outside, also! Will pass this tip onto my daughter who has naturally curly hair that needs a lot of moisturizer. Thanks!
