Okay now im having more breakage than normal!! I have been using ORS hair mayonnaise for about 2-3 weeks now and it did help with my breakage at first but now im seeing more strands than I would like to see in my sink. I rearly comb my hair but have had to recently (thanks to Hairfinity my hair has gotten alot thicker) when wrapping my hair @ night. When doing so I see alot of brakage and this morning when taking down my wrap I seen even more strands w/o the bulbs at the end

I bought some Aphogee intensive two minute Keratin Reconstructor but im not sure if this is enough protein, or should I get the damaged hair treatment? but my hair isn't damaged. Please Please help, it's too the point where I cannot even run my finger thru my hair w/o some breakage!

Just put it in your conditioner and leave it on for 20 minutes

How much do I add? I usually DC w/heat is this okay? Now I've heard that it works for shedding, have you tried it for breakage? I will give this a try tonight but if this doesn't work maybe I should cut back on the co-washes. My hair feels more soft and managable after but soon starts too break.

One more ? can dandruff/dry scalp cause breakage? I have a seriouse case of it. I want to retry the Nizoral, but I have color in my hair and have noticed the color changes after using it, do you know of any dandruff shampoos that are okay for colored hair??

@ Malika, thanks for the input. I actually have hair bleach in my hair not color. And it's only in the front. I went to get a rinse put in which my stylist always bleach the area first then put the rinse in, but this time when she put the bleach in as it was turning colors it turned a beautiful honey color so I keep that color and did not add the rinse.

I had so many people compliment me on my color and were very suprised when I told them that it was actually hair bleach. I have been doing this for about 1 yr now and had no problems, and the color isn't the area that's breaking, I know you would think it was!!. This whole hair growing thing is a job itself. Thank you!

the first thing to getting your ends together is to clip them. you cant get the splits to form back together and they will only split more and more if you leave them. after clipping the ends then use the treatments to manage them and prevent future split ends

You do not necessarly have to trim your ends. Trimming your ends only gives it a healthy look. You can use aphogee product line to get your split ends at bay, You can do deep condition treatments, use VIRGIN coconut/olive oil on your hair and a water base oil for your ends. I did mines for the healthy look and that is what it did exactly.

Ladies,where are you all getting your Virgin Coconut oil from?Is this only applied to the scalp or to the ends also?Whats another great product for the ends of the hair that can be used without causing oil stains on my collar of my shirts?
