I used to have a similar problem especially on my ends but I fixed that by doing hot oil treatments with a combination of olive oil, jojoba oil, and coconut oil hours before my wash. I also don't use shampoo at all anymore because I found SLS and SLS free shampoos both cause my scalp to dry and get irritated so I just wash my scalp with a paste of ayurvedic herbs (shikakai, aritha, amla, and brahmi). These have cleansing properties but are much more gentle. Brahmi and amla are very good for bringing in moisture back into the hair, while shikakai and aritha are great for clarifying the scalp. If you do decide to use these herbs, make sure you always oil your hair beforehand. I also noticed they are much more effective as cleansing agents when the product build up in the hair is a result from natural oils rather than styling products with silicones and other ingredients that require SLS shampoos to be completely removed from the scalp. I condition my ends with 'Giovanni smooth as silk conditioner' and after I rinse it out with cool water, I apply a mixture of jojoba, camellia oil and peppermint essential oil on my hair and rinse out again with cool water after waiting 10 minutes. After that, I let my hair air dry a little and apply 'Nu-gro Leave-In Spray with Moisturizer' as my leave-in and detangle with a wide tooth seamless comb. So far, this routine has worked the best for me especially during winter, when my hair gets dry and brittle. As far as protein treatments go, I use Aphogee two step about every 6-8 weeks and that seems to help my hair keep its strength and retain moisture better. I hope this helps Smile

You should use coconut oil 30 minutes before you wash your hairs..........

I have done the strand test; my hair has low porosity. I don't use much product on my hair, the products i do use are light weight. I do protein treatments once every two weeks because my hair is relaxed. I tried the LOC method and it didnt work for me so i will try the LCO method and see how that works. I do use products that have silicone in them so i'm going to try to find other products that don't have any (which wont be easyCry) Thanks, again!


Np. I'm a natural so I'm not sure what would work on relaxed hair but here's some products I use in my (mostly non silicone) regimen;

Non-silicone:
Giovanni Direct Leave-in - it has some proteins in it but it's not the type that makes my hair hard.
Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk - has silk proteins which is more like a conditioner than a hard protein.
Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner - this is my non-silicone rinse out that I also use as a leave-in sometimes. It does contain aloe vera (acts like a protein) and avocado oil (which is a protein), so it may make your hair hard.
Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie - I like to use this when I'm doing styles that need a little hold. I found it to be fairly moisturizing when I wear twists.
V05 Moisture Milks - definitely a protein condish but it leaves my hair so soft.

Silicone:
Tresemme Moisture Rich Conditioner - only as a backup.
Herbal Essence Hello Hydration - this is my general go-to rinse out conditioner but at the moment, I'm sorta taking a vacay from it since it doesn't seem to be as moisturizing as it used to be.
Aussie Moist - gawd, this is my holy grail. I just wish it was available on this side of the world(oh, the irony!).

Shampoo:
Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine - non sulfate. In my case, sulfates can lead to my hair being dry and brittle.

Oils:
Grapeseed, Argan, Coconut and Jojoba.
Anything heavier than those and my hair will be a sticky mess. It sucks because back in the day, ppl were raving about olive oil and my hair completely despises it. Cry

apply a nice oil to the hair while it is still  wet. OR put olive oil in your conditioners and don't rinse it all out.

Green house method every night! It worked for me. If you need to add a little bit of oil to your ENDS only but first try not to. Just add a little mist of water to your hair but not to where its soaking wet and then put a bag or a shower cap over your hair and tie your scarf or jus out your bonnet over it. After a week you should notice a major difference. You'll notice a difference the next day, but the longer you do it the better.
