Re: Brittle Hair?

You might be having brittle hair due to Summer heat and sun. The sun can really sap out the moisture in your hair. You could try a mask with something like avocado or banana to try to put more moisture back in.

I've always been sorry when I didn't trim brittle ends from my hair because it just ended shredding and I had to cut more off than I would have if I trimmed the ends!

I love my hair long too! If products aren't helping, you may need to get a trim. Nothing drastic. I have the same problem and find that my hair actually grows faster and is more healthy when I keep the ends trimmed.It protects hair shaft from being damaged further. Hope this helps.

Brittle Hair

I have color treated hair, and I use Lavender shampoo and conditioner only twice a week, and my hair is soft, silky and shiny.  I get it from Drugstore.com.  They are - shampoo - BWC (Beauty without Cruelty) Lavender Highland; Conditioner - Naked Naturals Awapuhi and Lavender Color-Treated Hair Conditioner.  Each is under $10.00.  I also don't use a blow dryer or any heat products on my hair.  I use my fingers to finger curl it or scrunch it with my hands to get a lot of curls or waves.  I think this has really saved my hair.

I've used a moisturizing conditioner and it's made my hair softer. I also trim it every few months to get rid of any split ends.

I have terrible hair and it breaks so often. I use the Fekkai treatment for colored hair. It kinda works, leaving my hair stronger and shiny and it smells so good. I also use heat resistant products on my hair if i'm going to blow dry it. But trimming hair a little bit shouldn't hurt!
