I have a regular trim every six weeks and any products I put on also have a conditioning effect as well I still get split ends but I'm due my next trim by then so they don't get too bad would that be an option it seems to be the only thing that really works for me
Try a brazilian blow dry so that you don't have to straighten everyday. I did this at the beginning of this year and my hair is in much better condition now. I also use ojon and only get my roots done regularly and colour all over every six months or so to limit damage. Also something good before I blow dry/ straighten, currently extraordinary oil but sounds like you do this anyway. My hair is fine and dry, hope this helps!
There are various remedies you can apply at home. Mix egg with olive/almond oil and honey as a hair mask for 30-45 minutes. Orange juice and a banana in two eggs will also make a good remedy for split ends. Some other remedies are Papaya, Castor Oil, Cream, Honey, Beer, Avocado, Vitamin E Capsules and many more.
Thanks for the suggestions. I think I will give some of Sarah's ideas a go.
I wash my hair every day. It always looks awful on the second day so it's hard to leave it. I can try just perhaps dampening it and redrying lightly on the second day but leaving it totally for a number of days is a risk no go unfortunately. I never straighten it and wouldn't as I think it would make the condition worse. My hair is cut and at least roots fine around every six weeks.
I wash mine once a week. I rarely wear products in it so it stays cleaner for longer. I get away with it cause I wear it up aswell. My hair has been damaged but itssoo much better with a cut and loreal extraordinary mask and the shampoo first.
