I have had 20 years of seriously Dry hair. Am now using Alterna Science of Ten HAir mask which costs an arn and leg and honestly doesnt work that well (then again internet order not sure I get the Real Thing). I have bathed my haor overnight in egg and olive oil, other oils I cant remember the name off, kerastaze, lots of brands. Am I overdoing it?
Any advice please from fellow sufferers?

Well, I know that B-complex is especially good for hair. Also, fish oil is also good for the hair.

Yeah, because it looks as if you are doing everything right externally so the problem could be internal.

I have had seriously dry hair for years and I am just starting to get it smooth and soft. I started using Nioxin intensive therapy hydrating hair masque twice a week which was recommened by my hair stylist. This is going to sound kind of weired but, my flat iron ever since I got it and started using it started making my hair softer, and less dry. I also just started using Nexxus ultimate moisturizing conditioner/shampoo and my hair has never been softer. Everyone is different so what works for me might not work for you but, hope this helps.

Yes...Vtoodler is right diet can definitely effect your skin and hair.

Can you describe your hair a little more? Is it kinky, curly, straight? You have to work with your hair type. If it is kinky or curly...then most likely you will have to accept it's dryness and go for products and a style that will help to control the frizz or serums that will help it to feel and look softer.

Straight hair has more of a chance to become "smooth" naturally through good cuts and the right conditioning line.

For really dry hair I suggest trying L'ANZA Healing Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner, it also has a masque and a detangler. Makes hair super soft.

My hair is curly and frizzy- if you can see my picture you can see my hair. It never grows longer than that length as it gets drier as it gets longer. Id love tips to control the frizz if you had any.

For the frizziness I recommend using a vinegar wash twice a week. Get apple cider vinegar from the grocery store and about a tablespoon into a cup of water while in the shower and pour all over your hair and then wash out. Do this after shampooing and conditioning your hair. The vinegar closes the cudicals...smoothing the hair and adding a lot of shine.

Good Luck!

good old fashioned beer is very good for fine hair,as a rinse, it adds body and shine to it. And no you do not smell like a brewery afterwards. Vinegar too for dark hair. Lemon for fair.
