Hi. I'm Amelia, and I'm here to talk to you about some causes for dry, brittle hair. Now most of the time, your average person is going to have dry, brittle hair because of color or other chemical processes done to the hair. So, if your hair is dry and brittle because of that, I would just simply look for hydration. It's not protein that you want because the hair's brittle, and protein will make the hair more brittle. You want hydration. You want moisture. So, you're just going to want to make sure that you look for deep conditioning treatments that talk about moisture. Like this one is moisture treatment, deep hydration. Very important. This one here, Oh Jean. It's a great one. Oh Jean oil, it's more of like a solid that turns to an oil, and it's great for moisture and shine. So, excellent. Now, there is another reason why you may get dry, brittle hair. If you're having thyroid issues, if you have hypothyroidism, that could cause your hair to get dry and brittle. So, if you've done the hydration treatments, you've done everything else, but yet you're feeling sluggish, tired, you're weights kind of sticking in one spot, than you may want to consider going to the doctor and having a thyroid panel done, just to cover all the bases, just to make sure. But, for most people, it's just the daily abuse that we do to our hair. And any basic hydration treatment will be fine, and just do it, make sure you do it weekly. Some of them need heat. Some of them don't. So just follow the manufacturers instructions, and you should be well on your way to adding moisture back into that hair.
