Does anyone know a really good hair treatment? I have hair down to my bum and I get the worst knots in it I find I am ripping half my hair out when I brush it, I have tried lot of conditioners. Does anyone have a home remedy.

You can try some Hot Oil treatments regularly. It helps make your hair smoother and less frizz and curls. It will also help take away all those tangles. Works for me when i regularly do it. Its also a good moisturizer for your hair.

I don't have a home remedy but I do use pantane moisturizer conditioner. It helps to leave the product in the hair more then a minute. Or tressume works not too badly. Just make sure to rinse well.

I also had very long hair and I used to use hot oil treatments at home as the hairdresses always charged a fortune for treating my hair. I always used to put a long loose plait in my hair at night as it used to annoy me when it got wrapped around my face and neck while I was sleeping. I still use the hot oil treatmenst, even though my hair is alot shorter now and they give my hair a lovely shine.

I used to have really long hair......and I had a problem with my hair. One of the things I suggest to you is buying a deep conditioner and putting it in your hair while in the shower. Let it sit in your hair for 5-10 mins (depending on the time you have)....before you wash it out take a comb and brush the conditioner through your hair. Also, have you tried any leave in conditioner? I prefer Biolage hydratherapy line. Hope this helps:)

Please DO NOT try this unless you've researched it a bit, but I've heard mixing a cup of mayonaisse and one egg is a great conditioner. I have never tried it, but I have friends who swear by it. And if you ever decide to get rid of your lovely locks (and I wouldn't if I were you : ) ), I know the Locks of Love Foundation would really appreciate the donation. I just did that and although I missed my hair, it sure was a good way to try a new thing and go in a new direction.

mix honey and extra virgin olive oil to create a wonderful hot oil hair treatment. leave it in your hair for an hour or so and rinse well. I do this about once every week or ten days and really love the results. I use 1 tsp of honey and 1/4 cup of olive oil, but you may need to adjust that depending on the length and thickness of your hair

I realized after posting that I didn't tell you how I do it; mix the honey and olive oil in a small plastic ziploc type bag and warm it by placing it in a bowl (sink, cup, whatever works for you) of hot water for just a few minutes. I put this in my dry hair, wrap the hair in a towel, then wash normally afterwards.
