about two weeks ago, maybe a little less, i had a wave nouveau placed into my hair. and it was okay for the first week. i ditched the products because it was a bit too greasy and moved on to some other things.
i now use it's a 10 miracle leave in (which the hairdresser recommended as an alternative to the wn finishing mist), some tea tree oil at my scalp, and hair rules curly whip
. and of course some coconut oil and olive oil for added moisture. and i use the sally's version of the redken anti-snap and the wn finishing mist on my ends. also i only wash my hair once a week. (just in case you needed to know my routine to help)
now it's been about two weeks and around five days ago my hair started breaking. i was told shedding was nomral. but this was not shedding, it was breakage (not from the root tho the pieces of hair were very long). but the breakage is extreme. i can't run my hands through my hair to apply product without a handful of hairs coming out. it's not just ends either, but almost root hairs (however not quite because i never see the white bulb on the end). and i've begun developing thinning and "bald spots" in the crown of my head and lots of small ones all in my hair.
i went back. but the original hair dresser was just no help at all. all he did was saturate my hair with the wn lotion and told me i wasn't using enough. it's been two days, my hair is still completely saturated with the product. and the breakage is still occurring.
has anyone been through this or have any suggestions on something i can do to stop the breakage?
and hello, this is my first post, exciting : ). sorry for such a long story.
i /think/ i'm around a 3b, 3c. and i am 1/3 Black, 1/3 Asian (it's a mixture of some Chinese, Japanese, and if i'm not mistaken Vietnamese), and 1/3 Caribbean/Guyanese - so my hair is rather course. i've also had relaxer perviously in my hair. it's been a little over a year since my last one.
