    Unhappy dry hair

    my hair is incredibly dry, frizzy and fine. it seriously rips my knitting.

    can anyone recommend any good products to make it smooth an straighter? i tried, and am still using frizz-ease serum but it did feck-all!!

    please, im begging you, i am at my wits end here

    My hair was like that after the summer too.
    First of all, get it cut!
    Use leave in conditioner, and comb it through.
    Vo5 miracle rescue is a good deep conditioner.
    If you use a temporary dye it can smoothen your hair out.

    Frizz-Ease do a miracle treatment conditoner that you leave in for 20 mins and it works really well.

    Yes!! A trim and Aussie 3 Minute Miracle.
    Aussie has done wonders for my hair - I use GHD straighteners practically every day, so u can imagine the state of my hair...well, Aussie fixes that!! (It smells like bubblegum too!)
    Oh, and the Frizz-ease deep conditioning treatment is great too...

    i hope you put an oil/serum/conditioning spray on your hair before you let that heat anywhere near it!

    Um, well.... no I don't.. the GHD stuff is too pedantic.. if i put not enough on, it doesn't work.. if I put too much on it makes it greasy.. so I don't tend to use any protective sprays :S

    Firstly, you should get a decent shampoo suited for your hair type, not any old shampoo. K…RASTASE do a really good one Called 'Oleo Relax' for frizzy and dry hair. They do a serum which is more of an oily liquid called the same, but apply it to the ends rather than the roots to avoid making your hair greasy. Have a look here.
    Before you use your hair straightners (GHD's?) make sure you use a heat protection spray of some kind to avoid damaging your hair even more. Redken have a good one which not only protects your hair from the heat, but traps the heat in, allowing your hair to keep its style for longer. Look here to find it.

    i use kerastase for my hair..the one in a green bottle for damaged hair coz i have highlights. it works wonders!

    also, bedhead serum is really good but pricey. and like y&s said, only put it on the ends!


    you could always go to a decent hairdressers n let them sell you loadsa products

    Totally agree with Young and Sexy about K…RASTASE - works miracles, but costs about £12.50 (or £10 something from LookFantastic.com), worth it tho!

    I use that and Umberto Gianni (sp?!) Straightening Shampoo and Conditioner Denman's Straightening Brushes are good too - look like a set of straighteners with bristles! (about £8.00 from Boots)
