My hair's terribly weak and breaks off REALLY EASILY. It's dry and needs a lift... Do you know of any leave-in conditioners or hair masks that mostly repaired your hair? Made it silkier and stronger?
I had that same problem a while back. This is what I did and it worked really well for me.
Get a fresh cut so that your hair has the least amount of split ends and is at its healthiest. I would say use a moisturizing and volumizing shampoo that won't weigh hair down, and a conditioner that strengthens weak hair. I've had amazing success with both Kerastase and Oribe for this sort of problem. also, clarifying shampoos once a week really helps to give volume because there's no product buildup to weigh hair down. In terms of heat styling, less is best if you want strong, split-end free hair. This kind of problem isn't an easy fix, it takes time for hair to build strength, but it's much easier to maintain healthy hair when hair is at it's healthiest to begin with. I must warn, these shampoos and conditioners are not cheap, but I am STILL using my Oribe shampoo and conditioner after 5 months! It's worth the investment especially if you want to grow your hair and you don't want to cut it for a while. Good luck!!
These are some of the products that've worked for me or that I think will help you.
Oribe - Shampoo & Conditioner for Magnificent Volume
Kerastase - Resistance Bain Volumactive Shampoo, Resistance Ciment Anti-Usure Conditioner, Resistance Masque Force Architecture
Aubrey - Green Tea Clarifying Shampoo
I would wait on doing a lift until you can get it strong & this may be the reason why your hair is brittle from lifting but there is a solution, Try using a Protein Mask in your hair as a deep conditioning treatment and you can find these at any beauty supply store. Then purchase a shampoo with color protectant & a hydrating moisture balance in it and you will also want to purchase the matching conditioner after a week you will see a huge difference and then you will be able to lift but you must maintain a regimen with your new products. good luck
try Avons "3D rescue damage repair" Its not mega expensive and it soposed to repair damaged hair in as little as 3 days. and if it dosnt work you can always return it and get your money back :)

Purology's perfect for platinum will really work to strengthen your hair over time, it's a little bit more $, but at least for 6 months or so until your hair feels stronger..
http://sweetsandhoney.blogspot.com/... i just wrote a post about split ends!
I would suggest trimming first. After you get a trim I think you need to deep condition with either a moisturizing or light protein deep conditioner mixed with virgin olive oil and honey and let it sit (dry or wet hair) for at least 30 mins. If you have time you can definitely leave it in longer! Rinse it out using a sulfate free poo and then condition again. This time you can use any type of conditioner. Afterwards, I'd suggest alternating between moisturizing and protein conditioners for following deep conditioning sessions
How about using coconut oil to DT overnight then a good shampoo in the morning?
And what do you mean by a "lift?"

I would use Redkin Extreme Shampoo and conditioner. It saved my hair a while back. I recommend it to all my clients that need repair:)

not an actual hair lift, haha! like it needs a trim and new shampooo and conditioners :)
I would say cut as much dry ends as you can. Also you can dry remedies such as eggs, mayo and avocado as a leave in conditioner. Whichever you choose leave on the hair from the nape and down for 20min(last 5minutes pull it into the roots). For volume I'd recommend the Tresemme Volumizing Mouse, just work a little into your roots. Moraccan and Argon Oils are good for the silky hair feeling.

Make sure that the shampoo's and conditioner's that you get do not contain sulfates. They are big at drying out your hair.
@ Laura J...About your blog piece I disagree with some of the points, e.g., you can comb your hair while wet if it's saturated with conditioner. It makes detangling *much* easier. And hair can be over moisturized (over-conditioned). It can make it limp or mushy and can be as bad as not being conditioned enough.
I have the EXACT SAME hair I think lol. I really like Nexxus Keraphix conditioner, it's restorative and strengthening and makes my hair soo soft. They also have a restorative treatment called Emergencee that is super strengthening but it has a lot of protein in it so it can make your hair feel dry if you don't use a good conditioner after. Also taking vitamins makes a HUGE difference, a women's daily multivitamin is great and a prenatal vitamin is even better. In some drugstores you can even just buy biotin in capsule form, which is whats in the vitamins that is so good for your hair and nails. I also deep condition at least once a week with olive oil. i color my hair often and heat style almost every day, so these are the things i do regularly to try and counteract the damage, since it is getting really weak lately, and they are already making a noticeable difference

Try putting on warm olive oil and leave it on for a few minutes then rinse it off.. OR you can do the same but with mayo either way it makes a BIG difference to your split ends after a few times :) Oh and make sure to drink at least 8 cups of water :D
An amazing hair product for split ends is AG's Split End Spa! You only need a few pumps and it works amazing and it is also Sulfate free,

As far as great treatments, the Keratriplex treatment from Paul Mitchell will really help. As a DIY treatment, you could try the (I think it was) the read box Ion brand treatment with Beyond the Zone Beyond Repair treatment. You also need to trim the dead ends off. For a more detailed solution message me at BrooklynCooper@ModernSophistication.com so I can find problems and solutions to help you now and in the future.
Hot oil treatments!!!
