i also think that people need to use a lot more conditioner than what is indicated on the package. i use twice as much conditioner as shampoo (i have long hair and i try to coat 3/4 of every strand. i dont bother conditioning near the scalp.

i take baths instead of showers so its easier to let the conditioner sink in as compared to in the shower.

i go through a lot of conditioner, but most of the conditioner i use is cheap (ie garnier, aussie etc) so it doesnt really matter.

dumbfairy, in what order is the argan oil ingredient listed on the back of the package. if its listed third or fourth in the list then it may only be a small amount in there.

.
i agree.
i use a lot of confitioner and don´t put it near the scalp so it does not flatten my hair.
and 2-3 times a week i put conditioner and leave it for 30min.
i have seen that it helps a lot.

grrr i hate hate hate damaged hair.

I bought the Tangle Teezer recently and I quite like it. I don't do much to my hair so the most damage comes from brushing. I think with this brush I'll eliminate some of the breakage.

I use paprika powder as a natural hair tint. My friend laughed when I told her...

^I have heard a lot about the tangle teaser but have no idea what it is...is it a brush?

Lucy,the argan oil is 3rd on the list of ingredients. But I paid £3.99 for the product so it's higher up the list than I expected! That,combined with leave in conditioner and a quick drying hair turban thingy,is having a good effect on my hair. It still isn't perfect,but I think with some more TLC it'll get there.

^Yes it's a brush designed for getting rid of tangles and knots. I've heard about it for a long time as well but stayed away from it simply because it's kind of ugly, hehe. It looks like it's hard to get a good grip since there is no handle but I didn't have a problem with that...

I have a habit of leaning over the bathroom sink while brushing my hair so I normally see hairs breaking and falling on the sink. I see less with this brush and there is not much hair in the brush itself after brushing. It's so easy to clean as well, very hygienic.

i found one on my website but tried ot find one for US. I suppose I will be having a shot for me and my hair tonight i try everyhing very interesting!


I thought I had shiny hair down to a science until now. From lemon juice to avocado conditioners, I long ago crowned myself a queen of DIY hair, but apparently, I was missing something huge all of this time. I recently decided to approach the non-shininess of my winter hair in a different way and I can't believe the results I got...without having to buy anything!
Any time you can handle your beauty regime without chemicals or store-bought product, you're doing yourself and the environment a favor. Further your green beauty by trying this sure-way-to-shine formula:
1. Add a shot glass worth of vodka to your deep conditioner (if you don't have a deep conditioner on hand, try mayonnaise, eggs, avocado, or honey.)
2. Stir in a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
3. Spread through hair and rinse after 20 minutes.
The alcohol lowers the pH level of your hair, which helps the cuticles to close. Meanwhile, the oil will instantly boost the shine of your hair.

not sure if it's been mentioned here before, but i've seen people (on youtube) rave about these products (especially the mask).

^ I would suggest not brushing or combing your hair (or if you have to, use a wide toothed comb).

Hand comb your hair when its wet to detangle but do not brush it.

Also, apply a good oil whether it be argan or macademia to the ends of your hair when its damp. Don't buy the drugstore hair oils (waste of your money - filled with useless chemicals).

And use an intensive leave-in conditioner (my favourite is from Ojon) a few times a week.

If you're already doing some of these things then it could be that you need to get your hair cut above where you have split ends - I know probably not what you want to hear.

you also may want to skip the home hair dye. going to the salon may be more expensive but it also lasts longer and can give you peace of mind.
