I have never and can never cut my hair, but I have a gross amount of split ends and breakage. Help!
I don't cut my hair for religious reasons (I'm a Sikh) but this means that my already hard to control hair is often dry, dull, frizzy, and full of split ends. Straightening my hair is impossible because i can never get the bottoms completely straight. I need some advice for products, and maybe, eventually, growing my hair out (for aesthetic purposes).

I'm curious, are you able to candle your hair for split ends? It's where you basically tightly twist a section of your hair and then run a candle flame along the length and it's supposed to cauterize/burn away all the flyaways and split ends. I've never tried it myself, but I've heard a few people speak highly of it. According to a quick internet search, some Sikh men candle their beards to trim them, but it's up to you whether you're comfortable with the idea or not. If you're going to go that route I'd look for a salon that specializes in it rather than trying the DIY route, at least for the first time.
Other than that it seems to me that your best bet is to start from the follicle out: eat a balanced diet, take a multivitamin, do protein treatments and deep conditioners regularly, and wear protective styles when possible and always sleep with a silk scarf or on silk or satin pillowcases. Basically, take really good care of your hair and protect it whenever you can. Eventually all the hairs with damaged ends will fall out and be replaced with (hopefully) really healthy growth. Good luck!!
