  • Dry Hair and Breakage

    My hair is dry, and has a lot of split ends. I do not dye my hair that often. What shampoo is good for dry, damaged hair? I am currently using TRESemme. Would that help? I used to use Herbal Essenses, SunSilk, and Sauve. But those do not help my hair.

  • I noticed I had really dry hair that was breaking alot when I returned from holiday to marrakech...50 degree c heat is not a healthy hairs friend.

    Anyway I started using a pantene hair mask for breakage and damaged hair, and my hair hasn't looked this good in a long time.


    • Thanks, I will try that.


      • I agree pantene works wonders on my hair


        • I also have dry hair and what works for me is Head & Shoulders: Citrus Breeze - even if you don't have dandruff, it helps! Not to mention it's pretty cheap. I'd also recommend not over-washing your hair. I used to wash my hair everyday, but now I wash it every other day and it's still just as clean, only less dry.

          I hope these tips help!

          • Low humidity outside combined with the house heater results in very low humidity in the house. It has turned my hair into broom straw. I have course straight black hair, in the past it was down past my butt, I had it cut but am letting it grow out again. This dry air has the ends split and I think it is getting shorter instead of longer.

            My sister in-law gave me some Kerastase Bain Satin 3 Shampoo and Masquintense conditioner. I've only used it once Monday but it seems to be helping already.

                When she says it doesn't matter, she probably means that she loves you and wants you. I've lost the amount you've gained. It matters.
