My majesty palm lived out for the summer and was really healthy and full. Now I have it inside it is drying up and dying. The tips of leaves are turning brown. I have it in a sunny kitchen but not direct sun.

I suspect your Majesty palm is responding to the changes in temperature, light levels and humidity indoors which are usually vastly different than it would experience outdoors. In time it should adjust. The usual reasons for browning of palm leaves are dry air, underwatering, cold air, or excessive minerals in the water. Try misting the leaves to increase humidity around the plant, keeping the soil moist, and keeping the plant out of drafts. You may want to use bottled rather than tap water if you know your water is very hard.

Hope your plant recovers soon!
