It really sounds like your hair needs regular deep conditioning treatments done to it. Also because the weather has become much colder outside, that can be a factor too as to why your ends are feeling crunchy and dry at this time. Hopefully this new hairdresser that you are going to will be able to exactly pinpoint what's going on with your hair at this time, and be able to treat it the right way.
I have never gone to an organic hairdresser, but would of course love too. Definitely post back back on how well it goes!
