Hair repair?

Hi, everyone! So, I am currently trying to repair my hair because I was told that it was overprocessed due to heat damage and relaxing. I have completely stopped relaxing (it's been almost 5 months now) and I guess you could say that I am currently stretching -- I'm not quite sure if I want to transition to natural yet. I have about maybe 8-9 inches of relaxed hair, and maybe 2 inches of new growth growing in? I was just wondering what would help my hair from breaking off and what would help repair my poor hair. I recently purchased Silk Elements products, both the heat protectant spray (the one without olive oil) and both the Silk Elements ColorCare Sulfate-Free Shampoo along with the Kera Minerals Deep Conditioner for daily washing. Along with that I purchased Motions CPR Deep Conditioner and when I'm not deep conditioning, I'm using Tresemme Cashmere Hydrating Serum with a processing cap over my head to air dry. It's been a week since I've been to the hair salon and I'm already noticing that not blowdrying my hair has helped SIGNIFICANTLY, but I'm still not happy. Besides the regimen I currently have, do you ladies have any other tips for me to get my hair back in tip top shape? I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
I'm not familiar with the products you're using, so can't comment on them because I don't know the ingredients.

If your hair is really damaged, you can't repair it. You may be able to make it "better," but the only thing that will give you healthy hair is to do the big chop and stop damaging it (I'm sure that's not what you want to hear.)

Other then that, you need to do frequent PTs followed by DTs, treat your hair with TLC and stop doing the processes that damage it.

You should try Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil Hair Treatment Kit which has some products that can help you to repair and restore the damaged hair, plus keeps it soft and shiny. I bought it online @ safrons.com
Over processed hair can be made better but not tip top. The over processed portions will have to be clipped out either all at once or over time for your hair to be fully restored.
