I have abused my hair over the years, constantly changing colours. Recently its looked in an awful state so I decided to dye it brown as I heard hair is healthiest when brown.... maybe I made that up I don't know.
Anyway, seems that last dye had finished it off! It's all snapped off and feels completely like straw.
Can't cut it as it's very short and doesn't really suit me.
Ojon damage reverse oil helped my over processed hair. A bottle last's about 6 months for me with daily washing. I also bought the damage reverse mask that comes in a pot but couldn't stand the smell. Philip Kingsley elasticizer is supposed to strengthen hair too.
I get it from a boots in the city but they have a website, the company and origins are the same iirc. The damage reverse oik comes in two sizes, if you are going to purchase maybe get the smaller bottle, think it's about £12 so not expensive. The best place to buy Philip Kingsley is from all beauty.com, you can purchase a trial size from that website. The big bottles of elasticizer are ££'s.
Once your hair has got to a certain point there's not much you can do. You can use hair masques to try and make your hair appear healthier but all of the damage will eventually need cutting off. Don't use any heat on your hair as well.
My hair was so thin in the summer due to my hairdresser overlapping the bleach so I’ve stopped bleaching now and just letting it all grow out. I also had it cut to shoulder length which helped massively. I hate my hair short but I had no choice, as long as I can put it up still.
5/6 months in its getting longer and thicker every day.
