    You could use a deep conditioning treatment once or twice a week. You can get them from most places, its like a mask that you put on your hair and you leave it on for a while and then wash it... It conditions the hair deeper than normal conditioner.
    Also check normal conditioner and try and get one that will rehydrate or is for dry/damaged hair.

    You could try hot oil as well but I would attempt the deep conditioner first.

    You could try Clinique Hair Conditioner - excellent, as it will not contain that horrible surfactant Sodium Laureth Suphate that is a chief scalp irritant. Amazon sell this quite cheaply, but Boots do special offers and, you can get Nectar and Boots points as well.

    Both Tresamme and Aussie are great. I'd say go with Tresemme though because it's cheaper and just as good. Aussie conditioner isn't very thick either.

    Good luck with growing it! Men with long hair are yummy.

    It doess! They have different levels of intensity for each one; I think 'salon silk' (the green one) is the highest, so it's worth hunting that one down rather than going for the more common blue one. I have hair the length of my back, and it's managed to keep that looking alright, even through the harsh, harsh winter.

    Aww, I bet you don't really need to straighten it. If you leave it alone for a while it'll naturally become shinier because it isn't being constantly burned. That said, how long are you wanting to grow it? I suppose it it's not going to be long long then you could get away with the constant straightening. Do you use heat protection spray?

    tresemme is awful, definitely don't use that if you're looking to grow your hair long. it gives your hair a waxy, nasty feel.
    aussie is the best i've tried. use the 3 minute miracle reconstructor, or take the heat. both are v. good.

    A good shampoo is just as important. The L'oreal Elvive Smooth-Intense line is brill (orange bottle).

    Aussie test their stuff on animals.

    I hope you enjoy using it knowing that animals have previously had their eyes burnt out with it.

    This, very effective, very cheap:

    http://www.boots.com/en/Boots-Ingred...-350ml_863445/

    Just put it on instead of conditioner and leave for 5 mins, does wonders!

    Also, l'oreal elvive do great conditioning masks.

    Another thing you could use is coconut oil. It's actually sold as a food but it's really nourishing for the hair especially if it's dry or frizzy. You just put it onto the ends overnight and wash it off in the morning. Sounds weird but it makes the hair lovely and smooth
