WHY Oh WHY did I dye my hair?!
I have worked extremely hard to get my hair healthier, longer, minimal breakage, and minimal shedding…. All gone down the drain with a stupid spontaneous desire for change, I dyed my hair twice within a 10 week period.
The first dye wasn’t so damaging to my hair I took A LOT of precaution and preparation to do it. However the color was not what I wanted. So I waited, and I dyed it again, this time going much more dramatic. The color turned out great, what my hair is going through right now is not.
For years I had been dealing with horrible breakage and then thinning hair. I worked very hard to get my hair to be healthy and then I began to grow it out. It was beautiful! I also had a lot more money to spend on products and boy did I drop it too.
Now, my hair is miserable. It is breaking and I am loosing SO much hair. Unfortunately, thinning hair runs for women in my family. (Thanks for the genetics mom!) I have trimmed my hair, I have treated my hair, and I am at my wits in with my hair.
Because my husband and I are struggling financially I have not been able to purchase my beloved brands I have before so I have resorted to what I at the stores purchasing one thing at a time.
What previously worked for my hair?
Curl Junkie (I actually used the Deep Fix as a leave in condish!)
MiraCurl Curling Gelly
What do I have on hand now?
Kinky Curly Knot (hate the smell of it)
And ½ bottle of Curl Junkie Cleansing Cream.

NOTHING is touching my.
I have 2 B/C, Fine, Porous, Low Density, Thin, Breaking, Bra Length Hair. (Coconut Oil Sensitive) Oils and Butters make me look like a grease bucket. I live on the east coast in DE. We have pretty high humidity here during the summer time. Summer has always been so difficult for my hair. I am a wash and go type of gal. I air dry with my hair put in duck bill clips at night, sometimes wet.
So Ladies…. On a tight tight tight suffocating budget…. Help Me Restore My Hair! I promise NEVER to die it every again!
Should I do a big chop? I’m losing it and break so badly…. I’m afraid I’m not going to have any hair left in two months.
