    I've noticed that sometimes when I feel a single strand of my hair its not very smooth. There are thicker and thinner bits and it has quite a bumpy texture and the hair seems to be unhealthy.
    Does anyone know why this is or how to prevent this from happening.
    Thanks

    I'm not sure what that would be but I mash up banana and put it in my hair for 10 minutes and that keeps it smooth for a couple of days until I wash it. (Bonus you can rub the inside of the peel on your face for a face mask)

    That sounds weird when I read it back to myself but it works for me and is worth a try before you shell out real cash for your hair.

    Shampoo + conditioner? Wash your hair everyday. If that doesn't work, buy different one.

    If it's actually damaged: has holes in the strand, is uneven in texture, has knots in the strand, this cannot be undone. You can make it feel more managable and smooth until it grows out but it is already damaged. Putting heat on your hair, not moisturising it and letting it stay dry or tangled is how that kind of damaged is caused.

    You need to have regular trims and if the hair has structural damage, you can strengthen the bonds by applying a protein treatment which temporarily fills in the microscopic gaps in the hair shaft. You can get these in boots. Not a specialist product. Do that once every 2 weeks and see how you go. If you need it more, do it once a week if the effects are long lasting do it once a month.
