I am not sure what to buy the right product for the type of my hair except that I know it is badly damaged. The end hair is really split and not pretty. I am mostly wavy than straight. Before I became to be a mother, I was really straight, and I never had done my hair anything strong like perming it to be curly, or something like that. They happened to be wavy from time to time after being a mother once.
Funny, I always wanted to have wavy hair while I was straight, and then I finally had them wavy and it was beautiful. But then I missed having straight hair, so I used the flat iron to straighten it and I didn't do it often. Let's say once or twice per month the most of the time. Sometimes every weekend depends on special plans.
I dye my hair about 2-3 times a year. My hair were really thick, but then now it seems medium. Notice losing hair a lot everyday, and sometimes it just falls off on my arm while doing home chores.
Sometimes, I feel tempted to dye it every 2 or 3 months because of grey hair popping up but not too many of them. I just brush my hair differently to avoid the vision of greys, so that buys me more time not to dye til much later.
I decided to let my hair grow really long, and it is almost close to my butt, I plan to highlight and trim & make many layers on it before my birthday coming up in a few weeks because my boyfriend is taking me to cruise to Bahama for my birthday. I suddenly realize the look of my hair very unhealthy. I have done researched and the best advice was the deep conditioning and that they could do it at home which I never had done it myself in my entire life. (maybe that is why my hair is screaming for help)
So, what is the suggestion? What is the best product that ever works for the damaged hair? Do I have to pick the right product that works for my hair because I am Hispanic? Or it works for all skins?
Is it okay to brush a plastic bristle wet hair after shower? Is it also okay to tie them up in a ponytail while it's wet? I did that a lot, and maybe is it how it's damaged?
And can you please give me by step by step instruction how to do the deep conditioning at home because I watched youtube, and they all did it differently. It confused me.
Sorry too many questions! LOL, need to know ASAP and my hair is SO dying and embarrassing for me to leave them like that even for doing food shopping!!
Thanks so much for your time and patience!!!
