My roses were in full bloom and I trimmed off some dead heads shortly after.
However most of them have not grown back, instead they have gone brown at the end.
Any ideas/advice what I can do?
I thought I was giving them good amounts of water.

Just trim the brown twigs off and cut lower next time you dead head; for most roses remove the dead bloom and stem down to the first set of five leaves.

Agree with Pork. Deadhead down to the first set of (depending on the rose) the first set of three or five leaves.

Trust porkpal and mustbnuts.
They know how/ where to make the correct removal.
Happy roses!

Agreed. The place where a leaf attaches is where a new cane will emerge -- there's a tiny "bump" of tissue, cradelled there,

Cut just above there -- maybe a quarter of an inch -- at a 45-deg. angle, with the high point of the cut being on the side where the leaf attaches. See where the line is drawn? THAT is where you cut.

Sometimes, a picture really IS worth a thousand words.
