The answer is yes; you can repair your injured vocal cords after they have been stretched. When you abuse your vocal cords by repetitive and forceful talking or singing, your vocal cords will dry out and eventually becomes stretched or swollen, making your voice hoarse. Repairing your stretched or strained vocal cords takes time and requires proper throat hygiene (gargling a warm glass of water with 1 teaspoon salt every day), avoiding foods and drinks that may irritate the throat (like spicy foods, dairy products, alcoholic and caffeinated drinks), taking natural throat remedies (like drinking a warm cup of herbal tea like ginger or ginseng tea with a tablespoon of honey) and resting the voice entirely for four to five days. By following the above tips, your stretched vocal cords will recover naturally and brings back your natural singing voice.

I am having vocal hydration trouble while singing?

Hi I am tenor sometimes 2nd alto depending on the key of the song. Recently the last few events I've noticed that I struggle severely with my upper range (which used to be no problem for me at all) While singing my voice becomes extremely dry and hoarse (for no reason that it should be) and it makes me fight to stay on pitch and key because it is so dry. And to me, my tone sounds so weak (compared to what it used to sound like) and forced. Do I need help with this? My voice seems fine before singing then I get up to sing I'm in a fight to stay on pitch and key because it gets extremely dry?
