I have blonde hair and my roots are showing up brown, it has a of damage to, I was wondering if their was anyhting I can do for how damaged it is, I also use alot of product in my hair.

My first suggestion is that

My first suggestion is that you check out the Damaged Hair page here on GrannyMed.com. There you can read about specific natural remedies that may help increase the strength of your hair including olive oil, rosemary, coconut, avocado, apple cider vinegar, and ginger oil.

First off, you will want to avoid damaging your already weakend hair. Stop using heat to dry and style hair. Secondly, use a brush with soft, natural bristles. Third, use coated rubber bands to pull back hair. You can also sleep on a satin pillow and get regular hair trims every six weeks. Protect your hair from the sun by wearing a hat, and from the chlorine in pools by wearing a swimming cap. Lastly, be sure to shampoo your hair after any strenuous exercise because the salt in your sweat can erode the hair shaft, causing split ends.

Many oils have been recommended to condition the hair, which may relieve dryness which contributes to the formation of split ends and hair weakness. You can use avocado oil, olive oil, almond oil, castor oil, coconut oil, or walnut oil by massaging into the hair from the scalp to the tips, then covering and letting it soak in from 30 minutes up to 8 hours before shampooing out.

Another option is to consider adding jojoba oil to your regular conditioner or make a hair mask from things you can find in your kitchen. You can apply honey, papaya, avocado, coconut milk, banana, or egg yolk alone or in combination to the hair and then shampoo out.

Finally, make sure you are eating a healthy diet. You will expecially want to make sure you are getting enough zinc. Consult with a hair professional or nutritionist for further guidance about ways to strengthen hair.
