Well, it sounds to me like you need a good hairdresser. You need to get it cut, and probably thinned out. Try a shorter hairstyle (shoulder-length or shorter). Get it professionally/chemically straightened. Without all that bulk, the relaxer should hold up. Truth is, it's going to take some money to get your hair in the condition you want it. And by all means, DO NOT use a bristle brush on your hair! With as thick and brittle as your hair is, it will only damage and break your hair. Just because it's thicker does not mean it's invincible against damage, it's exactly the opposite. Get a flat iron and straighten very small sections at a time (about a quarter to a half of an inch in thickness) and work your way from bottom to top. Get Vitamin E supplements in pill form...(you know, the ones with the liquid in the middle), break them apart and put them directly in your shampoo and conditioner (use half the bottle of supplements for the conditioner and the other half for the shampoo). A smoothing/shine serum and some spray leave in conditioner will help too - KEEP IT IN YOUR PURSE for touch-ups on frizzies thoughout the day. Try not to touch your hair a lot (unless you have to), your hair will look like Einstein's. Try anti-humidity products and wash your hair in cool water instead of warm/hot. Cool water constricts the hair follicle and hot expands them! Sleep on a satin pillowcase instead of a cotton one, as cotton is extremely absorbent and will just suck all the moisture out of your hair. I don't know what products are available to you in Sweden, but I will give you some links to your inbox for some products that are availible here in the U.S., and then you can try and find something similar. Get a deep conditioning mask for your hair. Apply it every other day to your hair, wrap your head in plastic for about 2 hours and rinse with a 50/50 mixture of shampoo and conditioner. Hope these tips will work for you!
