    Hi - it could be that you have some porous hair with the ends being the most porous as they are the oldest hair so to speak. Maybe get a trim and also if you can use some protein - either in your products if your hair isn't too keen on protein or protein treatments if you hair is ok with protein. Do you colour your hair?

    what products are you using just now gniesam? Im the UK so can only recommend products like the SS protein spray, or say CJ curl fix (as opposed to drug store products - but maybe someone will chime in with some more suggestions). Depending on what you are using just now (if none have protein) you could just try using a co that has some protein in it or if you have protein in your products just now you could try the likes of the SS protein spray or curl fix. But I would get a little trim too. (nothing drastic just the ends)

    this happened to me too over the summer, I had assumed it was just the sun bringing out my natural hi-lites! I don't know how to reverse it, but I actually like how part of my hair is more auburn than just brunette. like curlyhairmichuk said, I think I saw this was a sign of overly porous hair. you could try searching the forums to see what kind of products will help with porous hair! I hope this helps a little!

    alright, so the recent diagnosis of my ends is: they might be overaly porous. oh boy.

    could it be just my ends or is it all of my hair?? I did this one 'test' to see if my hair was porous or not, and it came out to be normal.. idk.

    I use [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Elucence-Moisture-Balancing-Conditioner-p-39.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=elucence-elucence-moisture-balancing-conditioner]elucence moisture balancing conditioner[/buylink] and elucence moisture benefits (which leaves my hair quite dry) I use [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/AG-Recoil-p-24.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=ag-hair-cosmetics-recoil-curl-activator]AG recoil[/buylink], CK and [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Curl-Junkie-Curls-in-a-Bottle-p-995.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=Curl-Junkie-Curls-in-a-Bottle]CJ CIAB[/buylink]..

    i'll try the protein thing..

    at curly.g: I have to agree with you, although I didn't really want my hair to get a dark auburn this way, eventually i was going to dye a part of my hair dark auburn.

    I couldn't be more thankful for you help you guys.!
