last year, my hair broke of extremely bad in the back of my hair on the right side. Putting my hair in a ponytail made my hair look extremely thin when it isn't at all. So cut it into a bob style and it's grown back but still on the right side of my hair it's still short on that side after it growning back and now my hair is to my neck. I don't want to cut my hair again so I was wondering what it is that i could do to get my hair to match my hair on the left side. I've ordered my pills, but I was wondering if there was anything esle that i could do.

I have the same issue, except its on the left side. I cut my long hair too, but it still lags. Even to this day. These are tips I can give you:

- If you stressin', find a outlet. Exercise, Read, Talk to someone, Play with your dog, SOMETHING! Stress is proven to take your hair out to the point you go bald! Some people, when stressed, breaks off in a certain area, like moi. When I stress my hair breaks in that area. So, it may be the same for you.

- Put oils in that area. Massage it. Try to do this twice a day. In the morning and at night, when you are most likely to mess in your mop. This will help it.

- Keep it moisturized. My area is the most dryest part on my head. It may be the same for you.

- Basically take care of your entire head, but give that area extra attention. That area will gradually build elasticity and won't break as easily as it gets stronger.

And thats all I got, if anyone knows anything else, please do tell. I'm still trying to find some remedies myself.

well a majority of the breakage came from putting a perm in i think was tooooooo strong for my hair and i used Affirm Normal and it starting burning really bad, i hurried up to wash it out but it was too late, when i combed it, so much hair came out in the comb and i almost cried. but my hair has gotten back its thickness. I don't really like putting oils or grease in my hair becuz it weighs my hair down, but if i can find something that doesn't i'll be more than happy to use it. I have Doo Gro Mega thick grease, and maybe i should only use it in that 1 area but i'm not sure.

Oh, I don't use grease at all.. All greases main ingriedient is PETROLEUM and MINERAL OIL. Petroleum clogs your pores and can prevent your hair from growing.

DOO GRO oils are good but not their grease. Their products contain alot of harmful chemicals like mineral oil. So I only stick to their oil which is recommended by hairfinity. But I use jojoba, avacado, and especially coconut oil majority of the time.

And oil shouldn't be messy and shouldn't weigh it down too much. You may be a little bit to heavy handed. You can evenly distribute the oil on your scalp and the rest on your ends. You can use your fingers to distribute it from your scalp to the hair shaft. Thats what I do. It's never a mess unless your putting too much.

If you aren't already, use REGULAR relaxers. Never use a super. Remember, your trying to manage your waves, not straighten them. If thats what your trying to get, your going to end up damaging and over-processing your hair badly.

Try to use moisturizers too. Wink

i'm not exactly sure, i kno it's thick, cuz when i would go to africans in NY to get my hair braided, one girl complained about me having so much hair, and it wasn't even straightened, i just blow dried it and put some oil sheen on it. it's not coarse, it's soft and i still don't know what my hair type is.

Try checking out those sites. I have relaxed 3c/4a/4b hair. My hair has different textures in it. It's so weird. The middle grows straight while the sides are curly and kinky. Rolling Eyes And the top is wavy.

I can't determine your hair type from your description.

Uh, when you get new growth, does it wave, curl, or kink?

Speaking of hair type i want you ladies to enlighten me about something.
My sister has thick..and i when i say thick i mean thick hair (its shoulder length). her hair is just really full and lets say she gets a perm today her hair can never be well relaxed, it looks and feels as though she never got a perm. Then next time she gets her hair braided and takes out the braids its already time for another perm(one and a half months later Question Question ). The thing about it is that she doesnt have new growth or anything.

Can someone please enlighten me?

I don't think how thick your hair is has anything to do with the type of hair it is....

To take a good guess, she may be a 4a or 4b, since her hair zig zags.
