12 10 bad hair split ends greasy oil dry dull tbNoticing some unpleasant changes in your hair lately? It might be time to switch up the products you’ve been using.

Here are five signs it’s time for a change:

1. Your ends are splitting and the strands are breaking. Too much heatstyling is likely the culprit, as well as products with a high alcohol content. Go natural a few days a week, and switch to keratin-infused products.

2. Itchy, flaky scalp. This is a problem that cannot be ignored. Use an invigorating scalp treatment and talk to your hair stylist about a shampoo that will soothe your scalp and fight the flakes.

3. Lank, greasy hair. You need to start using a deep-cleansing shampoo, and a dry powder or spray shampoo (you can even keep this in your desk and use it halfway through the day to revive your limp, oily locks.)

4. Frizzy, unmanageable hair. You likely need to start working with your natural hair texture, not against it. If you’ve got curls, let them be. Blow-dry gently with a diffuser and smooth on a nourishing oil afterwards.

5. Your hair is dry and dull. Consider switching to a more gentle shampoo with organic ingredients.

Dermatologists and hair stylists alike recommend only washing hair twice per week, but when your product isn’t cutting it, that can be tough. Now, Black 15 in 1 Miracle Hair Shampoo ($24) and Conditioner ($26, at salons) has arrived on the scene and changed all that. Because the blend of ingredients strengthens the hair and adds shine, the claim that you only need to shampoo your hair twice per week is completely true!
