Hair very dry and brittle -what can I do?
- Last updated: 1 year ago
Hello. For several years now I have been having significant trouble with my hair - it's always seemed very thin, brittle, breaking, dry and with split ends that form even after a very recent cut. The most recent thing that I've noticed is that my hair is falling out nearly in chunks (maybe like 4-6 hairs at a time). Every time I run my fingers through my hair or brush it I get left over hair in my hand. My hair brush fills up with hair in just a few days and my hair covers not only my own clothes but my boyfriend's as well (whom I live with)Before I moved from my parent's home, I lived there for about 10 years. We had well water there and it was very hard water, so hard that you could taste all the stuff in it, we always drank bottled water. My hair was always a wreck while I lived there probably caused by the build up in my hair of all the minerals. However a couple months ago I moved out of their house and into a new apartment which provides city water, which is much much softer. No difference at all and in fact it seems it's getting worse. One thing I will mention is that I did use the famous product "Wen" which after I finally looked up reviews for after seeing no improvement, I saw made a lot of people's hair fall OUT. I don't understand what the heck I'm doing wrong that is destroying my hair. I simply wash and condition it each day with garnier fructise. If when I get in the shower my hair isn't oily, I'll just condition it so as not to dry it further. Once out of the shower I put a detangler in (which has argon oil) and gently brush out my hair. That's it, I don't even blow dry it. I just wish there was something I could do. I've tried those home remedies of eggs and oil etc. but I notice nothing different except my scalp just looking oily and needing to be washed again. I don't have a lot of money so I don't really have the luxury of going into a salon and buying expensive products. I don't know who to turn to for advise on this, I just want healthy hair that I can grow long :( I'm only 24 and my hair is so thin and weak looking that I think it almost makes me look older. Someone help please :(
