How to revive dead ends? - April 3rd 2018, 07:23 PM

I've noticed that the ends of my hair are smelling burnt. I'm pretty sure that my hair smells this way due to me straightening my hair almost every day, and possibly because of how much I cook without pulling my hair up. Is there any way to revive dead ends without cutting them off? I have been trying different shampoos and conditioners that are supposed to help "revive" dead ends, but it's starting to take a toll on my scalp, like being too dry.

I have used coconut oil for my hair. You can put it in your wet hair then leave it in for as long as you need then rinse it out with normal shampoo.

You can also melt coconut oil and put it into a spray bottle and spray it on your hair. Your hair may look greasy and oily but after you can use the coconut oil while you wash your hair.

I've used coconut oil for my hair and I liked the results.

I'll have to save some money to get myself some coconut oil then! Will definitely try it out.

It might help if you didn't straighten it every day. I know my sister in law who is a hairstylist says the reason my hair is so healthy is because I let it dry naturally and hardly ever straighten it etc. I know that might be hard to do but I have heard there are things you can do to your hair that don't require straightener.

Cutting the split ends is probably the best because it will get rid of all that hair and then your hair will be more likely to grow faster. I know that a lot of the time you can just trim it though so you wouldn't have to get a ton taken off. A lot of the time when I get my hair cut I just trim it maybe take an inch or two off or just clean it up.

If all you did was a hair cut you probably wouldn't need to spend a ton of money. Getting hair done tends to cost more if you dye it etc.

Best regards.

Ah, that's true as well. I used to trim my split ends, but stopped because I don't like cutting my hair. I'm probably going to have to start trimming my hair again. It is hard to not straighten my hair, especially because my hair is naturally wavy.

I don't tend to like cutting my hair either. Last year I cut a fair bit off but I'll probably grow it back again. My hair is relatively healthy, thin but there is a ton of it and it get really knotted. I can brush my hair and ten minutes later there are knots. It's a pain which is why shorter hair is better for me.

I do know that for split ends it helps to trim them. I don't think you have to trim off a lot though and if you know how to do it yourself it is even better.

My hair is wavy a lot too but straightening it took too much time and never held long ( my sister in law says it's because of how my hair is). I can get away with a more natural look as long as I carry a brush.

I do think that if you google stuff you can find ways to deal with wavy hair in a more natural way. If you know people that do hair you might be able to ask them as well.

My sister in law has helped me a lot with my hair because she knows I don't like doing a lot so she has given me tips.

She does do it up every time I go in just because.

Anyway, I hope that you are able to find a resolution.

That's nice of her! I'll have to think about what I want to do to help my hair, haha. As much as I don't want to, I'll probably have to turn to trimming my hair.
