Need help with hair

TomsToms Posts: 5Registered Users
I'm a nineteen year old guy and kind of new to this. My routine is fairly simple. I just use tresemme naturals conditioner and eco styler gel. i would like to know why my hair looked and felt so much better eight years ago even though i put no effort into it at all.

    Nice hair! :)

    What are you doing different now than you were doing 8 years ago? Gel makes my hair crunchy so I don't use it.

    Eight years ago i did absolutely nothing to my hair and it was great. I'm not really sure what makes it so dry now.

    I personally don't like Eco Styler b/c it dries out my hair since it has protein. Maybe you could try a natural gel?

    Tresemme has a dash of protein in it too. That along with the Ecostyler might be too much protein for your hair. Maybe rotate either the Tresemme or the Ecostyler with a more moisturizing conditioner or gel.

    Your hair is nice! I like it!
    Hair just changes over the years. My hair used to be curly, then got wavy, now it's back to curly again. It just happens.

    To make it less dry, you should try a heavier conditioner, and I agree with aubin and ellepixie. Try to cut back on the protein (in hair products lol) and see if you see any difference. It's all about finding what's good and what works for your hair. Experiment!

    Since your hair is fairly short you can probably just use a moisturizer....I'm thinking of stuff you can buy on the ground.

    Boys always have the nicest hair :angry7:

    It's probably the Ecostyler, try mixing it with some type of oil or hair butter and you aren't leaving the conditioner in are you? Some conditioners with coat the hair and leave a dull build up and make your hair feel and look dry..

    Also it might just be that you have different hair now.. as we get older our hair changes...
