Hey so I have been looking through the boards the last couple of weeks but I am just completely lost and overwhelmed. I have had curly hair my whole life and for the most part it has been controllable. Well, it is changing textures and I think even my curl is changing to more of a 3C and I am just lost. My longest layer is almost to my BSL but a lot of the hair is damaged from dying it over the summer. I don't know anything about proper treatment I just have always done shampoo conditioner my whole life. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to start?

Also I am probably chopping a good bit of my hair off next week unless there is some way to revive the hair. Any suggestions? Right now it is taking me about 40 minutes to wash my hair and I am having to do it every other day now (I used to only wash it every 3 to 4 days). This is completely unrealistic for a college student and way too time consuming currently.
