That's really tough when fam does not support. I applaud you for showing such inner strength to keep going. Please continue to love the hair God blessed you with even in the face of opposition from loved ones. They don't mean to be hurtful, one day they will understand your decision. For breakage, i suggest a deep condition once a week. After wash, slather hair from root to tip with a good conditioner like lekair's cholesterol(my fav) leave under a shower cap and head scarf for 30 min to (create heat) and then wash out. For better results, exercise a little while the cholesterol is in your hair. Hope this helps!!
