When I was a little girl, my mother brushed our hair very vigorously with a brush to bring up the blood from the scalp to nourish the hair follicles. Then she made us wash our hair with shampoo two times followed by a vinegar rinse using 1/4 vinegar to 1 quart of water. This not only brought down the oils from the scalp, but conditioned our hair. Vinegar is a natural hair grower and anti-fungal that will make hair grow and heal as it works.
Years ago, my mama was a caregiver to a very health conscious lady. She had two "healthy hair" hints that mama took to heart and still uses to this day and so do I.
When your hair is dry or brittle, it needs "feeding". Put enough olive oil in you hair to completely cover your scalp and hair. Wrap with saran wrap or some type of plastic wrap. Keep it covered at least one hour. Use regular shampoo to wash out.
Take a kelp supplement, available at most drug stores. Because of strong meds (pneumonia) I have on occasion lost a lot of hair and it was then that I would remember this very lovely lady's hint. It works.

Here are questions related to Remedies For Hair Loss.
I posted the following in another post about hair loss/thinning. ...I know when your protein intake changes it can cause hair thinning. If you are taking any medications, those can cause hair thinning. I have this problem due to my medications, sometimes worse than other times. My doctor told me to try Head and Shoulders or if you want something stronger than try Nizoral or Neutrogena T/Gel. Even though these shampoos are for dandruff issues they really help with thinning hair. I have oily hair so you wouldn't think my scalp is dry but the hair follicles themselves need help. A couple of things to keep in mind... don't brush your hair when wet or you could try a shorter hair style, use brushes and combs with widely spaced bristles and teeth with smooth tips. ____ My issue got really bad where I could see my scalp too. I tried the previously mentioned products and they really help me.
