I also notice that it starts to break off on the ends and gets brittle, I like using a oil for now but always looking for different stuff to try. I came upon this site, it's a good one with great tips.
Damaged Hair vs. Dry Hair
Damaged hair often occurs if you frequently apply strong chemical treatments to your hair (including keratin treatments, relaxers, and bleach). A telltale sign is if your ends look dull, your hair feels brittle, and it doesn't absorb hair color.
Dry hair usually looks and feels frizzy with many split ends. It can be caused by frequent use of heated styling tools, not using conditioner, repetitive color treatments, and direct overexposure to the sun.
