So for the past 6- 9 months my relationship with my hair has been rocky, she's (I refer to my hair as she) been behaving in a way I'm not used to, she's breaking in places and has become unbelievably dry, she's lost her ability to take in moisture and for a while I was really wondering why. I have been natural forever but only started taking my "journey" seriously about a year or so ago and since then I've been trying out more natural friendly hair products and methods, so when my hair started to act up I was so confused but now I think I know why and what the solution is 

I've watched loads of natural videos and spoken to all my natural friends and family (not that there are many) and it seems that the problem with my hair is split ends, my split ends have apparently gotten so bad that they are affecting the rest of my hair.

I've never really paid much attention to split ends or the damage they can cause and on my rare visits to the hairdressers I politely decline the trim and keep it moving, my belief was that even when hair is trimmed split ends will remain so just how often should you have to trim your hair? The notion that trimming your hair helps it grow also made no sense to me because growth happens at the root and trimming happens at the tip... how can the two possibly correlate?

I've trimmed my hair before but my trims were always few and far between however every avenue I have searched in for the answer to my hair woes has led me back here. 

So I'm chopping my hair :( I know its not such a big deal and I also know that healthy hair is better than long hair but I can't help but wince at the thought of my tresses hitting the ground because of my trimming ignorance. I 'll use this as an opportunity for a fresh start and hopefully mine and her (my hair) relationship will flourish! Just thought I share that...

Hi Stephanie,  I think you should try this for 6 months

I've used it off and on for years.  I'd grow my hair out, then perm it, then cut it, then locks it, then cut it etc.  With each big chop I've grown it out with this product.  It's excellent for hair, skin and nails and it REALLY works.  My hair is naturally very slow to grow and very very coarse.   A friend at an organic health food store suggested it me a while back.  It's the only thing I've found that actually works.
