    Hello, I am Jean am a Ugandan and I need your help. My hair is a mess and I do not know what to do any more. My hair used to be very healthy, I used to have relaxed very long hair. Due to our dusty environment, my hair started to turn brownish so a friend of mine advised I use black henna which I did. I followed this up with a protein treatment every six months and my hair was jet black and thicker…. I loved it….. that was in 2009…… I always did this in the salon. It went well until one fateful day when my hair started to thin and break so much……I was told later that my hairstylist used to mix the black henna with a permanent dye as at times he would run out of the black henna product. I was forced to cut my hair by half to grow it again….. It did not work out until I was forced to do the big chop. My hair still breaks so much when i comb, it is so hard……ooooh I actually went natural but last year but along the way I texturized my hair to soften it……..had forgotten to include that……. I changed my regimen but no change……My hair is still so thin and still breaking and shedding too because I atimes notice the round balls at the end…… I am currently using Queen hellene cholestrol treatment, vatika hair oil and water with aloe daily spray……. Please Advice…….

    Hi hon, I am sorry that happened, the henna and indigo every six months would have been perfect for your relaxed hair because it gives it strength and ofcourse that vibrant color you were talking about. However with relaxing and hair dye you are introducing two chemicals that can potentially destroy your hair if used very often.

    Now that your hair is texturized which is a mild relaxer It still might be going through the effects of chemical over processing. Here is what I would suggest, to give your hair loads of moisture, deep condition your hair with heat weekly, this means using anything that has water as the first ingredient. Conditioner, honey, mixed with oil is a simple way to add moisture to your hair. However you should still use protein in your regimen for strength, so you can use that same mixture I just gave you and add an egg for protein. I like to use food because its all natural and somehow your hair will respond better and it is easy to find.

    Consistency is what gets your hair back in good shape so if you try something once and it doesnt work immediately .. keep trying for awhile especially when doing something positive for your hair,…you have to give it some time to react to it. Try to alternate between moisture based treatments and protein treatments.

    Then finally try to extend the time between texturizers so that your hair is not more over processed. extend chemical treatments to every 12 weeks minimum.

    hope that helps love
