Hi curlies!

so since I remember my hair it doesnt have any volume , but since I start CG in January and I have to stop in July because it was straighten my hair so, in the right part of my head I can see my scalp and I its not curly and it seems so limp and boringgg, I really dont know what to do , some curlies tell me that have to clarified because I dont did it when I change to a sulphate free shampoo, but I dont know.

Also I have Low porosity (thin hair) i can use protein treatments to get curlier hair ?, I dont have diffuser and my mom dont buy me so that option is out for volume , even not putting my head upside down (it doesn work belive me )

Please help me ! I dont want to give up in my curls 3A Curls, low porosity, thin , density : low LOL !
Have you tried mousse? There are some thickening mousses out there.

Here's a suggestion that many won't agree with but I'm throwing it out anyway - feel free to totally disregard it. Thin hair can often be made to have more volume if it is colored. Something about the dye makes the hair feel thicker. However, it may not be good for your curls but if you are very unhappy with the thin aspect, you could try it and see if your hair still curls the way you want it to.

Good luck with this. I hope you get other good responses. Thinning hair is no joke - I know!

2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
CurlySmiler have you had any checks to see if you have a health issue? *

From your post you sound like a teenager and if you haven't been to the doctor you need to go to check you don't have a vitamin/mineral or hormone problem.

Lots of teenage girls and women are iron deficiency and even though you may have thin hair naturally if you are young it shouldn't be so thin you can see your scalp. Your hair doesn't need to fall out in clumps to have this issue you may just notice it's very thin in places.

In regards to using products you can change them i.e. wash with a sulphate shampoo to clarify then condition with protein and use alcohol free-gel but until your health issue is fully resolved your hair condition won't improve significantly. Hair is the one organ that is effected first if you have a health issue.

I agree with Blueblood, if you have that much thinning hair and are a young age, I would definitely get checked out by a doctor.

These are rhetorical questions, you don't have to answer, just things to think about - What is your diet like, do you eat quality whole foods and plenty of protein? Do you take a multi vitamin at all? Are you on any medications that could cause this?
