I'm curious what the secret is, or if anyone has suggestions. I don't use hair styling products, and shampoo/shower about 2-3x a day. The reason being is I'm out in the sun a lot. I've noticed in the past year or so, at times my hair is just so dry and brittle. Google search results tell me to eat the typical healthy diet.

But I'm wondering if anyone has anything legitimate? I've read a lot of suggestions, from actually STAYING in the SUN, to applying BRANDY, to rubbing vinegar. lolz

i make my own masks from 100% pure argan or olive oil every once in awhile... argan oil is something they use in north africa... my moroccan friend hooked me up with it :p

and on a weekly base, i use these 3 minute hair masks for dyed n damaged hair by Aussie... they have awesome hairproducts! only the smell is enough reason for me to use it hehe. another important thing is, never put heat on ur hair (eg straightener of curling iron) while ur hair is still wet! and ALWAYS use heat protection (i use the one by tresemme or aussie)

oh n i cut my hair on a quite regular base...!

not sure but washing 2-3 times a day is probably bad for your hair.

If you do not wash your hair on a regular basis then your hair probably get greasy but that also depends on your hair length...Too much cleaning like aforementioned is bad but too little is also bad bcos it look tacky.

I've dyed and bleached my hair countless times but my hair is still healthy. I wash it once a day max and only right before I go out. If you aren't going out then don't wash your hair or else you will get rid of all your natural oils! The oil is good for your hair. If you wash it too many times then your hair becomes "dry and brittle" like you described. Deep condition your hair and eat a healthy diet. You should buy leave in conditioner, too. Whenever I feel my hair is getting unhealthy I always use conditioner to restore it.

basically eat (5 a day) and drink healthily (water/juice).
i drink this, just 150ml is 1 of your 5, so 750ml and your good to go, i only drink 500ml a day.

Shower/Shampoo 2-3x a day? Definitely not good for your hair. It's actually even recommended not to wash your hair everyday. As someone has already mentioned, strips your hair of the essential oils.

I've read rubbing avocado into your hair helps. Cat litter too actually. Not all at once of course.

2-3 times.....dude i wash my hair once a day and thats already too much. but i dont feel clean if i dont. if youre hair is dry change your shampoo, its prolly not adaptive with your hair. and well......i forgot which vitamin it is but have your daily dose.
