I've been experiencing a lot more split ends, tangled strands, single strand knots, dryness and brittleness. I will admit that I haven't given my hair the attention it needs, such as protective styling, but now I can provide my hair with the attention it needs. What can I do to take care of the split ends, especially the ones that run the length of the strand? Do I need a protein wash for the dry, brittle, and lack-luster appearance of my hair?
Also, what are some things you all do to achieve your best twist-outs?
