Default my hair will NOT hold moisture even when i seal?

6 months ago I cut 6 inches off my hair because of 5 years of terrible care and bleaching/flat ironing/.washing everyday.. even then it wasent hard and crunchy like it is now! at first when i cut it my ends were baby soft. after like 3 months my ends started to get dry and crunchy.

I have tried wetting, moisturizing with leave in and sealing with sunflower oil. i have tried baggy method with leave in and then sealing. my hair feels great untill it dries and by that time it is very dry and crunchy/sharp like straw on the ends.i have hard water so i tried doing a joico moisturizing chelating treatment and washing out with the tresemme deep clean. (it said to wash with resolve but i dident have any)

i wash once a week with a mositure shampoo, i clarify every seccond week with tresmme deep clean because i tend to get build up. I use tresemme soft&silky silk protein conditioner for 6 months now.

It seems like as soon as my hair dries, it dries out. no matter if i seal. the only way i can keep my hair ends soft is if i tightly pack them in the inside of a bun , but as soon as they hit the air they are dried out. the weird thing is, i dont have hardly any split ends!

You have to constantly cut your ends until you're relaxer free. Sometimes it could be monthly or biweekly. Once the ends split and travel that can weaken the rest of the hair.

You need more hydrating products as well. Like organix hydrating macadamia oil shampoo and conditioner. Or herbal essence hello hydration shampoo and conditioner. Also a really good water based leave in like Cantu shea moisture leave in conditioner.

I totally agree with the OP. I was having the same problem with my hair. I finally buckled and got a trim. As a result of not trimming regularly they ended up having to cut way more off than I wanted because it was so dry and damaged. I had no split ends but the hair was still damaged. The ends of your hair will always be the driest because the are the oldest parts and have had so much exposure to the elements. Once I got a trim my hair was like new again.

What deep conditions do you use and what leave in?
