Extremely Dry And Dull Hair
I try to take the best care of my hair possible but it never seems to become normal. I don't color, perm, straighten, blow dry, chemically damage my hair. I eat very healthy for my hair and lots of water. I don't smoke or drink. I get good sleep and lots of exercise.
I only shampoo every 3 days with a moisture shampoo (Moisture Loc shampoo from Razzamatazz) which is a humectant. I use a good conditioner (Microplexx from Razzamatazz) and deep condition once a week. I don't towel dry. On days I shower, I use apple cider vinegar rinse with cold water to close the cuticles and improve porosity.
My hair was shorter than medium length for a guy and it was too hard to manage so I cut it very short, but it still looks very dull and lifeless and no shine. I currently have very dense, thin, slightly curly, black colored hair. I am a 19 year old Asian male. I'm doing all that I can to improve my hair condition and although it has improved somewhat since last year, it is still extremely dry, un-manageable/un-styleable, no life, dull, not a dark bright color, looks black/gray in the light, and easily gets frizzy/split ends.
Is there anything I'm doing wrong or anything that could improve my hair? I've tried many different products and different hair care routines and nothing seems to work. It is very frustrating to put in all this work just to have normal hair and not get the results.
