I used to have really thick, black hair. I was on a swim team this summer and the overexposure to chlorine reduced it about half of what it is. It's halfway down my back, and I was wondering if there were any natural ways to slowly build it back up to what it used to be. I don't straighten it often, maybe once or twice every month, and I don't use any product in it. It's naturally wavy when it dries, so I don't use a blow dryer or anything. Please help?

Hair masks are a recent discovery for me and they are life-changing. All you do is shampoo and condition like normal, then apply a mask to your hair and leave it in for three to five minutes (basically the time it takes to shave your legs or sing a show tune). You’ll be amazed at how much silkier and softer your hair feels after. Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Hair Mask has some crazy statistics — it reduces breakage by 96 percent after one use — but I mostly love it because it smells like Hawaii. For real.”
