I tried to go blonde in summer £200 down the drain thankyou shitty posh hairdressers 2 seprate higlighting treatments.

Didn't go as I planned and ended up butting a £7 lightest brown over it for 10 mins (and i love it)

BUT ... my hair is fucked.

You know at halloween when you backcomb your hair to look like a witch with hairspray?? It feels like that, after i just washed an dried it!!

I've always had soft silky hair and it feels awful.

What will save it!!??

Help me!!

not sure what to suggest really but i bought loreal miracle oil from boots for a tenner last week and its made my hair look better . oils usually make my hair look greasy but this doesnt and i put on more than it says . hair feels much smoother and shinier

Coconut oil. I use the fushi organic one.
I put it on my hair, overnight once or twice a week.

It's very good.

I tried that Aussie three minute miracle stuff and found it pretty good. It's not overly expensive either.

Joico K Pak shampoo,conditioner and hair pack are all very good and really made a difference to my hair.

Try a tigi products and leave it overnight to dry it tight, as poss in towel.

Also when you wash it out, wash it out with cold will make it a little sliky.

Could you stand a good cut?

Oils and conditioners will help a bit, but personally I think there's only so much they can do and chopping off as much as you can is the way to go.

My frizz is dyed medium blonde, it was frizz before though, I look like a clown in the rain today! Moroccan oil is a miracle on my hair. Only thing that's really worked.

Argon oil. I add a couple of drops into my usual conditioner once a week and it's worked wonders.

I'm sorry, I really can't help but the picture made me really LOL.

Just go to a health food shop and buy coconut oil! And trim it regularly. I recommend the mumsnet haircut! grin

I sometimes sit with olive oil on my hair. Just the normal kitchen stuff.

After washing I use L'oreal Mythic oil which is fantastic. They now do a shampoo and conditioner in it so I may be treating myself shortly.

I think when your hair gets so dry, any solutions are short term unfortunately.

Coconut oil or Argan oil in for a while before you wash it. Moroccanoil after. Boost your roots with a bit of batiste. Trim regularly. Job's a good'un.
