I am sorry you are going through this. Hair can really affect how you feel about yourself. You may be better off getting it cut down to an inch and wearing a short wig until it grows out or wearing extensions.
In order to get a job, you need to project confidence. Fake it until you make it. Adding olive oil to a drugstore conditioner like tresseme naturals moisturizing one is a good start. Also, Sally's usually has generic versions of most salon products. Try to follow curly girl and conditioner wash with Suave Naturals conditioner and leave some of your rinse out conditioner in and use a cheap gel. A lot of this is trial and error.
