From what I've read & pieced together, I've come up with this: dying breaks the hair down, making it less thick. protein is supposed to be good for it- like, replenish the thickness, right?
I dyed & flat ironed my hair a lot (12yrs-17). I've been natural since like august, 2010. Done really well getting back to my natural state although I'm not CG (I experiment). I love my curly hair. I don't straighten it much. In fact, I prefer my curly hair all the time no matter what its doing! Lol. I'm having a lot of success healing all the damage & going thru a phase of beautiful new growth.
Its getting thicker, I can tell. But I really want to help it, ya dig? I'm 3c- tight, springy, soft ringlets. I'm pretty sure I have fairly porous hair. I still see a lot of my scalp sometimes.. I think that's what bothers me. I've read about how constant dying stresses the thick factor & that protein can replenish it, making smaller strands grow thicker. Also that porous hair tends to like protein.
Can anyone prove any of this to me? Lol. Or have had any success stories similar to mine.. or anything at all!! Haha
