First of all, I want to say HEY LADIES! I'm new to the board and the entire healthy hair growth community. I decided to join because I got tired of wearing sew-ins and dreaming of long, beautiful healthy hair! So, here I am.

I'm currently in the process of stretching my relaxer (for the first time! Ya'll pray for me because I'm a month in and my roots are a little rough LOL!) I've THROWN OUT my blow dryer and I've incorporated airdrying and roller sets into my hair regimine. Even though I'm taking more steps to protect my hair, I'm STILL having trouble with breakage and split ends.

I DONT: comb or brush my hair excessively, use direct heat, color or dye my hair, use products with mineral oils or grease

I DO: wash my hair twice a week, deep condition under a hooded dryer, moisturize and seal with oil twice a day, moisturize and seal my ends before bed, sleep with a satin scarf.

Because I wear my hair in protective styles, my hair tangles. I'm afraid to detangle my hair when it isn't wet because I don't want to put stress on it. Does anyone have suggestions for my tangle issue?

For breakage, I've tried Organics Leave-In Hair Mayonnaise (which is nice for making my hair soft) and Aphogee Two-Step Protein Treatment. Ladies, please help your girl out! My Hairfinity vitamins are coming in the mail and I want to nip my breakage problems before my hair starts growing. My hair grew longer the last time I used Hairfinity, but I did not deal with my breakage so the new growth was a waste. Crying or Very sad
Sorry this was so long, divas!

Hello! Welcome to the Forum! I'm Brittany or you can call me JP!

Anyway, I know the females here will be happy to help you with the issues your facing, including me!

Now...your breakage. A protein treatment can fix that immediately. May I recommend the Egg in the conditioner treatment? It's a bit strong but will stop that breakage on point as long as you follow up with a moisturizing treatment. You can treat your ends by applying oil and moisturizer at night everyday or other day. This will help you alot.

But overall, your regimen is very good. I wouldn't change it. It seems like you already know how to care for your hair. All you need is some patience and you are on your way to long luscious hair!

oh I also forgot, you can use your fingers to detangle while wet or use the C&G technique.

brastrap_hereicome Welcome it's good to have you here. It seems that all that you are doing is going good so keep up the good work. You might want to look into taking Garlic pills or shampoo with it. This will help with shedding/breakage etc. However, Jp's advice will work too so at least you have choices sister. Keep us all posted and don't be afraid to ask all the questions you want. Happy Growing!

also to detangle your hair, wait till its about 70% dry to avoid putting stress on it. it will be easy to comb through but still be good for your hair

With wet hair out of water is when you don't want to comb your hair because you are putting stress on it but with the most slick like with a detangler, conditioner or constant running water is when you want to detangle
