Buy any kind of coconut oil (which you can get at your local Walmart) I apply it to my ends after I get out of the shower & it works wonders; makes my hair so soft, shiny, & helps my split ends! I also use it to wash my face.. & as a deep conditioning hair mask! Coconut oil is an antibacterial, not only is it affordable but it has many uses! *Great for dry, damaged hair & super cheap :) give it a try.. I'm sure you'll ditch all those name brand hair products!
