Thank you both! I do cut a little after every wash, but am afraid of a bc because itvwill be so short. I do most of what u both said...jamaican castor oil on my edges, use oil when I take my hair down, perm rods, wait for it to be completely dry. I didn't realize wigs would make my edges worse, however. Why is that if I wear a cap? And I didn't think to put oil in the roots before taking my hair down. Tx. And I agree, seeking a professional stylist may help.
