I don't know what's going on with my hair lately. About three months ago, I went back home, and my mom (I'm bi-racial, my mom is asian) convinced me to flat iron my hair to get it trimmed. Okay, so, I BCed in January of last year, and I'd only flat ironed twice before, so I thought my hair would be okay for it, and it was - everything turned out fine and dandy, hair was silky smooth, flowy, we'd used a heat protectant; I got my hair trimmed to get out the split ends, and then, all hell broke out.
Literally two days after my trim, I noticed more split ends. I'd already washed out the flat ironing, because my heat protectant had been a silicone, and my hair HATES silicones, seriously. So my mom flat ironed again (don't worry, we used the heat protectant again) and we trimmed AGAIN.
Fast forward to now - my hair had been fine two weeks ago. Now, suddenly, there are splits EVERYWHERE, my hair refuses to take in a lick of moisture the second I step out of a shower, and its become so hard and crunchy it makes me want to cry. I haven't changed my hair routine, it's just that, suddenly, my hair
has changed on me
I don't know what to do! I'm 3C/4A, with fine/medium/coarse(maybe that's just fried, I'm not sure) hair, and I think low porosity, because my hair will not sink in the cup no matter how long I leave it there. My hair has just been acting up like a delinquent juvenile, and I just want it to be soft and touchable and lovely again.
I really don't want to cut it all off. I've finally grown it back to just before BC length!
