    First of all, if you're looking for HAIR PRODUCTS, OIL, CONDITIONER, a normal shampoo & conditioner should be fine. The hair that you see now, is dead. Wikipedia.

    With that said:

    "No hair product can change the hair's biology," says Eric Bone, senior VP of global research and innovation @ L'Oreal USA. "Products that 'repair' them are like glue used to put a broken vase back together. At the end of the day, it's still broke," says dermatologist Paul J. McAndrews, MD, a clinical professor @ the University of Southern California School of Medicine. "Overall, products are a temporary fix, although some can help prevent damage. But your best bet is really to stop damaging hair, period."

    Example 1: "Hello, my hair is bleached and I've colored it alot in the past.
    I haven't retouched my bleached hair in a month or two and my hair is Constantly breaking off!!! I'm losing SOOO much hair!!! Especially in the middle of my hairline
    Ive been using Moroccan oil conditioner, olive oil masks and my hair is still breaking off! PLEASE HELP ME."

    Eliminate the CAUSES for DRY HAIR FOREVER
    1. Hair gets very dry from too much sun exposure, same with the skin.
    2. Shampooing in Hot water & chlorine in the pool causes the skin to get 'dishpan' hands look, so does the hair. So use warm water.
    3. Blow drying too long. If you need to blow dry, towel dry first air dry some, then blow dry for 3-5 mins.
    4. Don't use products containing alcohol. Gel has alcohol, so does hair spray. Add a small dollop (size of a quarter) of gel to keep hair from frizzing.
    5. Perming, relaxing & dyeing all causes hair feeling like hay. Get frequent trims, allowing new growth to take over.
    6. Don't wash your hair often. 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.
    7. Overbrushing. Avoid too much brushing or styling in the winter. Harsh winter months can leave your hair dry, dull, brittle, or frizzy. If you've got curly hair, finger comb is best!

    1. Cover your hair with a scarf or hat when you go outside to prevent sunburned even during winter.
    2. At the end of washing your hair, rinse it thoroughly with cold water. This locks in moisture, according to Hair Care, and gives your hair extra shine.
    3. Always dry your hair thoroughly before you go outside, since damp hair can freeze and break.

    MY HUSBAND'S hair is curly, all of his life, and it's NATURALLY DRY, no matter how he style it, how often or less he wash it, and he's been eating the same foods as I am for over 40 years. Nothing he can do, can change that it's NATURALLY dry, FOREVER. But now that he's retired, he's letting his hair grow, he finally took my advice to wash it 2x a week, and his hair had gotten silkier, softer, smoother & longer & healthier.

    Keratin is always great but very expensive. You want a deep conditioning moisturizing mask or look for Redken Extreme line, it's a blue color and can be found in Ulta.

    Try just putting some coconut oil all in the ends and leave it in for a little while then rinse it out. That's what my hair stylist suggested.
