Biosilk Silk Remedy is great! You can discover it at beauty shops or even stores like Costco or Sam’s Club. You can use it on soaked and dry hair and it smells fantastic 🙂

    You have thin hair, there’s something you can do: lay off chemicals (pool, hair dye or heating tools), and hair products can’t reverse the damage DONE to hair. It is a billion dollar business, btw, and they can not give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss caused by ‘abuse’. Those above you mentioned are abuse, for thin or THINNING hair. They’re brittle because of chemicals and they’re weak, so they are breaking off.

    Best advice: get your hair trimmed, often, allowing new growth to take over. Heating tools can and will slow down the growing process, even stopped the hair from growing. Change your styling methods. Washing less often, builds the natural oil your hair needs, to get them smoother, shinier, silkier, softer. Man-made products are just temporary, until you wash them again, and at the same time washing off the natural oil your hair NEEDS. Hair product just absorbs on your hair if they’re dry, like a sponge.

    Continue to shampoo & condition.

    Right now, your hair needs lots of TLCs. Change your diet, also.
    CNN, Slate, Consumer Reports, MSN, YAHOO have posted them online for years how people spend $ 20 billion per year on vitamins and supplements.  According to Everyday Health, here’s an article that will tell you why . . . those PRODUCTS by any other name do NOT WORK.  It is false advertisements. Google: Are Supplements Good For You? About 7,430,000 results (0.15 seconds). THEN Google: Are vitamins & supplements good for you? About 4,250,000 results (0.14 seconds) Some can actually shorten your life!
    Google: Hair growth caused other men nationwide in class-action lawsuits. About 1,640,000 results (0.10 second.

    Best advice from Hollywood’s well known hairstylist in the 80’s once said: “Keep foods in your mouth and hair products on your hair.”

    If you’ve straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all.
    Google: “Foods for Healthy Hair” – the website had moved, type it in.
    Your hair may be the fastest-growing tissue in the body but, unlike the skin, it cannot repair itself. That is why getting the right balance of vitamins and proteins is imperative. Don’t expect to look like you’ve stepped out of a hair commercial the day after you’ve changed your diet. It is likely to take at least three months before you actually see tangible results.
    Growing healthy hair doesn’t come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you’re in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you’re eating healthy foods. But when hair isn’t growing as fast, it’s because they’ve been tempered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .

    Cutting your split ends yourself, spend 5-10 mins. on a sunny day so you can easily spot them, using a 2″ scissors, cut strand by strand, section by section, allowing new growth to take over. Then 2x a year, get a good hair cut. This won’t speed things up, but it will make the hair look healthier while it’s growing. Even healthy hair like mine get them, due to normal brushing & styling.

    Best answer comes from people with Avatars, showing their healthy shiny, soft, silky, smooth hair.

    I know hair. I have over 4 decades of hair know-how. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy hair down to my knees, started growing them in 2003. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing in the 80’s & 90’s. I’ve known people in their 30’s whose hair stopped growing from ironing their hair in the 70’s. When I was in HS, my hair grew from bob to waist length in 3 1/2 to 4 years, and cut 2x a year.

    A heavy cream based conditioner and lots of moisturizing. Your hair loves and needs moister and it likes water too. When you dry your hair don’t use a blow dryer and pat it dry gently. let your hair lay down out of any kind of pony tail contraptions for a few days and see how it does. :3

    Okay so this probably gonna sound gross but trust me its a miracle

    1/4 cup of olive oil
    1/4 cup aloe vera gel (dietary kind)
    2 tbsp of vegetable glycerine
    1 tbsp of honey
    1 whole egg
    Essential Oils

    Might be hard to wash out your hair sounds cracked but put that and blow dry on high heat and leave in over night and wash out with cool water. :))

  4. If you can get some B-12 and Biotin vitamins. Also a good homemade remedy is to whisk together eggs and honey.
