a cut firstly
then use aussie for cheap or kerestase for ££ stuff

and use frizz ease

Ah mines the same, I wander if some sort of deep conditioning treatment would work. But which one?...

I had the same problem (there's a thread about it from a few weeks back) and tried a few different things.

Somehow I was expecting the answer to be in silicone free, organic products, but those didn't work.

I then tried Kerastase deep conditioning mask and it made a big difference but you have to leave it on for enough time and I ended up not using it as often as I needed. So for the in-between washes I got a cheap Pantene conditioner (this one). It is really really good and my hair is no longer straw like!

By the way, Aussie 3 minute miracle and Argan oil were two things I was recommended but didn't work at all for me.

Here's my 'holy grail'!

Somebody said on another thread that it's the shampoo which makes the difference and I completely agree with this. I always use a really good quality shampoo and have spent ££ on this - HOWEVER have recently discovered TommyGuns which is only a fiver but fantastic. I use wild nettle and Jasmine (the orange one) which is for dry hair and works a treat.

The other thing I do, ideally once a week, is rub baby oil into the ends and leave on for as long as I can be bothered before washing as usual. Fantastic. The lavender one makes it smell really nice as well!

I'm currently using Crabtree and Evelyn Aloe Vera conditioner, about £7 a bottle.

Had the same problem about 8 weeks ago. I started using Ojon once a week, also used VO5 hot oil which was pretty good. I also use a leave in conditioner (Charles Worthington) and argan oil. Now looks shiny and swingy again.

I'm going to try Phillip Kingsley elasticiser which people rave about on here and also a mild shampoo and macademia oil. I'm such a product slut grin

frizz ease on sodden hair is the dogs nuts

I find the Pantene stuff very very good, and I'm usually hmm of cheap products being as good as the expensive ones! But I always make sure I leave the conditioner on for at lease 2 mins.

Have a good trim to get rid of the ends.

Get some deep conditioning treatments. Put them on when you have a bath then pile your hair on top of your head and cover in cling film. Take a book and read it for as long as you fancy and then wash out thoroughly.
