    I'm always trying to delay trims, and the best way to do that is to do an EVOO soak, it gets rid of the crunchy and snaggly bits. Worth a try if you really don't want to trim right away.

    So I clarified (With HE Drama Clean Shampoo) and then washed with Organic Care Shampoo and Conditioner in one. Skipped condish. Hair is feeling soft and fluffy now (I think I needed that clarify!) but the ends are still feeling weird. When I ponytail my hair, so the ends are all on the top (I have layers) when i pull my hand down my ponytail i can feel all the dry, bumpy bits. I think its protein overload, because i've heard coconut oil is protein - I use that almost once a week! Should I do an EVOO soak? Anything else for deep moisture sans protein treatment? Thanks!

    I get the dry, crunchy feeling in my ends too yet they are not visibly damaged. Castor oil usually does the trick for me. I just let my ends soak in it for an hour then wash it out with clairifying conditioner and conditioner. When they dry they always feel a lot better.

    Ooh, and another thing. I have never, not ONCE found a split end in my hair. I got my friend to look, and my sister too, and they couldn't even find any!! So I dont think it's damage...

    I am a firm believer in never cutting your hair unless you really REALLY have to.

    Try everything else first and then if that doesn't work do a .5" trim. It will make a bigger difference than you might think.

    I'm going to echo clarifying. I had rough, crunchy ends, but I didn't use any 'cones or protein products. Well, lots of other things can build up. After one wash with a clarifying shampoo, my ends felt better. Try clarifying before deciding whether or not to trim.
