If your hair is still dry and haystacky after trying bog standard oil type treatments (like coconut oil or argan oil as mentioned above, then its probably more than just dry, but overprocessed. Hair needs lipids (oils) to remain healthy, but also protein.
I've done terrible things to my hair over the past year or so and I was finding that oil treatments were no longer solving the softness and elasticity issue so I did the Keratin treatment at home which is an anti frizz treatment, and whilst I didn't have frizz, it solved the condition of my hair by replacing the lost or damaged keratin molecules.
Its now super sleek, shiny, soft, and holds its style better without going weird at the ends overnight.
I've just started to use Moroccan argan oil. Think that's the right name. My hair has never berm so soft and shiny. Even after bring out on the wind it stops my hair turning fluffy. A little goes a long way though.
kittens my sister had the same problem after using a chemical straightening thing - she had used Yuko before with no problems, but tried a different type at a different salon and her hair snapped and broke and she was heartbroken. She went to a different salon who confirmed it hadn't been done properly, and got a solicitor's letter explaining that it was their fault and she would take them to court. She ended up with £3000! The damage was bad, but it wasn't that bad (she said bitterly). I would go to a different salon that does the same treatment and ask if they think your salon have damaged your hair. You might not get the same mega-payout my sister wangled herself, but worth a shot. You should be able to get the consultation for free.
