It's like no matter how much you trim, your ends continue to feel fried, dry and brittle beyond belief. If you notice your trims aren't resulting in healthier hair, it could mean your damage has grown far up the shaft of your hair.
Hair that's been given the ultimate TLC treatment but...
Your hair isn't returning to its normal healthy state. If you've attempted to give your hair some extra deep conditioning, hot oil treatment, rinses, clay masks, etc. - and your hair's health isn't improving, then it may be time to start over.
You'll need to give your hair love for months at a time - consistently - to see results.
Side note: Certain medication, like some used to control blood pressure, can impact your hair's health.
Many women who use hair dye often find themselves with dry hair as they may use color ingredients with drying chemicals or they may undergo several bleach applications (which is a no, no).
No matter how you got to the point of no return - or so you think - doing a second big chop and letting your hair grow again fresh can be an easy way out or a way to try that new tapered cut hair style.
Whatever you decide, make sure you thoroughly evaluate your hair first, or turn to a trusted friend or stylist to look at the areas you can't see.
