Losing voice problem

i'm losing my voice really fast [after 3 songs today ] nowadays in contrary to last year. i had a short break of some months where i wasn't practicing. but i don't think i'm doing something other now as in my 'old' days. my voice gets more fucked up by screaming vocals as of grunting/growling vocals. any suggestions for special practices ?

psh. What are you talking about? Losing your voice makes it deeper, don't you want that?!

i swear to god i replied to this yesterday night

oh well, to warm up, drink water, sing some scales, growl with a shit voice (hardcore punk style growls) until it sounds good, or what your voice should normally sound like (obviously youll know this better than i do )

Well, I've been roaring my head off for the past 5 hours and I lost my voice once or twice. How I got my voice back was to just continue talking regularly for a couple of minutes and maybe "try" to talk sofly in a low voice. That helps bring your voice back. ....and then growl some more.

For warming up just do some different pitched yells...Do a couple of deep growls and then some high pitched ones...For high pitched stuff (black metal type I mean) it takes pure practice. I spent like a good month to finally get mine to where I didn't lose my voice after like yelling 4 or 5 times. But warming up man just yell long, short, and stuff. At the highest volume you can.
