Needing moisture and repair
My oldest daughter and I have low porosity hair. Once we get moisture in, it's locked for a while, but it seems this summer our hair is so dry. I ran out of Shea a few weeks back an Im thinking that is affecting our hair. We've also been swimming this summer. I'm thinking of doing a protein treatment in her hair, but I'm protein sensitive, my hair turns to straw when I use protein in the smallest doses and I'm scared she will have the same challenge.
When she swims, which is almost everyday, I spray it with a homemade cond with infusion, coconut oil, actor oil, jojoba oil, neem oil, alma oil, and honey. Then I put on a swim cap. But the hair is breaking on the edges and is SUPER DRY. Any advice?
