When was the last time you got 1+ inches cut off of your hair? The old ends of hair can show damage other than split ends. Hair ties can also cause damage like that if the ends of your hair are consistently warped by the band. Seasonal sun damage or old color jobs can also make the older hair more brittle or change its texture.

I’d just get a haircut to get the damage off!

@blondie_bride:  I would try apple cider viniger, spray it in your hair and leave it on the ends.

Also, prushing your hair while it’s wet will stretch and warp/break the strands. Sorry for the novel of explanations – i’ve had a similar discussion with my hair stylist before so trying to cover all the bases!

@blondie_bride:  Remeber to add half water half ACV. ACV is acidic and not being diluted can burn your hair, so make sure you use half and half. 

 

I don’t use shampoo on my daughters hair, and it is down past her bum. We use baking soda and ACV and her hair is beautiful. Her hair stylest says she has the healthiest hair she has seen at her length.

@blondie_bride:  the same thing is happening to me!!! i chalked it up to a defective straightener before and purchased a new one but it’s happening again. i think purple shampoo might not be the culprit but it definitely isn’t helping. i’ve heard it is SUPER drying. not sure if you use it all the time or just a couple times a week but i might lay off for a while. i have been trying not to use mine (which is so hard cuz it helps the colour SO much!).

I put coconut oil on my hair at night, wear a turbie twist over it to bed and then wash it in the morning and I find it helps but it’s usually just a temporary solution.

I think you might be on to something with the messy bun. i ALWAYS wash my hair and put it in a bun wet… and I notice when I take it out the ends are the wooooorst. Unfortunately for me that’s never gonna stop because my hair takes like 2 hours to blow dry!

I’m going to the hairdresser on Saturday so I’m definitely going to inquire about this and I’ll report back with my findings : )

As a stylist I would say its most likely from always wearing your hair in a messy bun. Lay off of putting it up and do some deep conditioning, also try putting some argan oil on the ends while it is damp

When i lived in an apartment with crazy hard water my hair did this, a lot.  maybe your water softener isn’t working properly?  Also, if you’re putting it up in a messy bun while wet it could be damaging your hair.

@blondie_bride:  It could also be the water, try getting a chlorine water filter for the shower. Chlorine is all up in our water supply. Just one shower a day and our bodies are absorbing something like 8 gallons of chlorinated water, really is so sad.

@blondie_bride:  pretty sure you’re my twin because WE just moved into OUR house too. and i also have insanely thick hair, especially for a blonde, i’m told.

I didn’t consider the water quality as some PP have mentioned but that might be it for me… we moved to a small town recently and my hair has been significantly worse since. so maybe that’s a cause!

let’s BOTH report back after saturday : )
