My hair is about to get chopped off. I am not kidding. It is always so dry. I buy these freaking products from the salon. They arent working you ask? NOPE!!! I drink tons of fluids, I take Vitamin B pills… What do you ladies do to keep your locks from acting up? Any tricks, homemade stuff, certain must haves?
Please fill me in!!!!!!!

I have horribly dry hair – sulfate free shampoo is my new best friend! I use Giovanni (get it at Target) but L’Oreal just came out with a suflate free shampoo too. Give that a try? I use that and lots of leave in conditioner, and hardly ever blow dry my hair. It’s definitely better than it used to be!

Anything else I can use other than sulfate free shampoo? I purchased Sulfate free from the salon… didnt see a dramatic difference but will continue to use it anyway!

This might sound a bit ridiculous but after I put hand lotion on i wipe the rest on my hair. I’ve told a few people about it and have only heard positives.
Though if you do it too much you can look like a greasy mess.

@troubled: i do the same thing! 🙂 it calms down my frizzy ends a lot.
i also use neutrogena triple moisture deep conditioner TWICE a week (it says once, i use it twice), and the triple moisture silk touch leave in cream every day. these are the ONLY products that have helped my hair, and i’ve tried the super expensive products too.

Dont wash your hair everyday & only shampoo the top.
I agree with the lotion comment too!

Haha I am INSANE about my hair!!
I only wash it every 3 days or so.
I use sulfate free shampoo and conditioner (L’Oreal)
I wash my hair first thing in the shower, then I leave the conditioner in while I wash my body, face, shave etc.
I use leave in conditioner, but only on my ends (Garnier Fructise with UV filters)
I take Biotin (5,000mcg pills, not the 1,000) AND a daily muli-v
Watch what you eat and drink TONS of water
If you absolutely CANNOT seems tofix it, I’ve heard that the Damage Remedy Treatment at an Aveda Salon really does the trick.

I’ve coated my ends in olive oil, wrapped in plastic, left to soak for half an hour, then rinsed out (very well)–like a deep moisturizing session! I’m also one of those people who thinks lemon really works to lighten hair if you let it sit out on a sunny day, though, so I am a little crazy on the home-remedy front. I get it from my mother.

I have heard that if you wash your hair too often, it washes away your natural oils. I wash my hair every other day and don’t have an issue.

Leave in hair conditioner! I use it every day and I wouldn’t have the length I have without it! Also a light trim every 6 weeks, ends always dry out first.

Yea I reduced from washing daily (seemed to always get greasy) to now every other day or every 2 days depending on activities.
I can up my Biotin as well… hmm I may have to try the olive oil.. Seems funny to do but hey at this point i am desperate!!!!

My hair salon lady told me to use dish soap to strip out any residue. Dry it, then soak in olive oil for an hour. I loooooove it!
I’m sad I can’t use phosphate-free shampoo. I have dandruff, so I have to use head and shoulders. My hair is always dry and frizzy. 🙁

When my dry hair starts to get “crunchy” I use biosilk. They sell it in salons, but you can also get it at discount places like Nordstrom Rack or Filene’s Basement.

So Olive oil seems to be something I should try!

I have long, dry, wavy hair that tends to frizz. Because of my life style( I’m a chef,a nd I work out everyday) I have to wash it daily. I had tried EVERYTHING -expensive salon shampoos, drugstore products, hair masques. Last month I tried a new shampoo and conditioner- Herbal Essences None of your Frizziness. My hair has been great ever since- smooth, soft, and shiny. I have no idea why it works, but it is super cheap so I’m not questioning it!
