This is what you must do. Prior to washing or cowashing hair do a prepoo treatment with organic extra virgin coconut oil. Massage it all over your hair concentrating on your ends. Then put shower cap and satin bonnet and go to sleep. Or do this for 1/2 hour to 1 hour prior to washing hair, preferably with some low heat applied to it. Google it. EVCO does wonder for hair that is breaking and it makes it stronger. It enhances the protein that hair is made of.
