Use shampoos that are sulfate-free and natural is best. Another thing I’ve heard of and am planning to try out myself is deep conditioning my hair with olive oil…. from what I’ve read on it, just heat up till its warm a cup of regular olive oil and spread it through the hair, wrap in a shower cap and then over that with a hot towel and leave it in for awhile (I forgot how long but around 15-30 min i presume) and then just rinse it off after that. I use olive oil as a facial cleanser and other things and its worked well for that so I’m sure it’ll work great for hair alsoposted about 5 years ago
All the products…none of them offer a quick fix.
It will take a long time, over a year even, before the hair can repair itself. Just about the time it takes for the hair to renew, as in grow out and the damaged bits to fall out and grow new.
Products can smooth out the hair temporarily and give a healthier feel to it.
Also since you relax your hair i’m guessing you have kinky/curly/afro hair? You might want to try out the tip PeachyPanda wrote. Also they do make herbal oils for especially that kind of hair to moisture it, and sell it at specialised salons.
Cod liver oil is fab btw. Calsium, B-vitamins and so on are all important for the hair.posted about 5 years ago
