Transitioned and Discouraged :( HELP!!

Hi !

I Transitioned when i was 18. Im now 20 Round July 2013 i was finally dealing with 2 textures & Then around January 2014 I Can say i was fully natural. Before i transitioned my hair was colored and it still is.. its like my hair has stopped at a growing point, like it doesnt want to grow no more lol , will color do this? should i cut the remaining color out my hair? i've basically have grown it out because the color is on my tips? i feel like it hasnt been growing other people say they see where it has frown but i dont, it sheds alot when i wash it, get knots alot, and how can you lock moisture into your hair? because mine will dry up quickly i haven't really tried any natural styles like flat twist outs because im scared it wont come out right! , when i got a sew in a few months ago i got heat damage but it stills curl up but not like the rest of my hair :/ what can i do?? HELP! i just really want naturally Healthy hair



My Curl Type is Like 4b/4c i believe
I would suggest cutting the color out. Be aware that you won't notice growth with curly hair until you stretch it. Shrinkage is a beast with curly hair.
How do you stretch it?

Twist or braid outs. Even Bantu knot outs. That's what got me thru my transition stage.
Thanks! ! I will try that!

Until I got the bright idea to do like granny and use my blow dryer to press my hair and ended up frying my natural hair. Lol complete disaster. No more honey for my hair.
Haha! Im currently going through heat damage now from flat irons. When I had a sew in now I have a small patch of lose curls.

I use Distilled water for the liquid/leave in, Grapeseed Oil for the Oil, and for the Cream I use a mixture of Cupuaccu Butter, Grapeseed oil, and Aloe Vera...however, you can use any cream and I would suggest it be non water based. There is also an overnight method that has helped my dry hair tremendously...it's called Baggying. Basically what I do is spritz my hair with water or any leave in conditioner, cover it with a plastic shower cap, cover that with a satin cap, and then go to sleep. In the morning I just take it off and seal with the Grapeseed oil, and cream. I baggy whenever the hair is dry.
