My hair got thin because it broke off how long do you think it will take to regain its natural state?

Asked by: Puppy Angel 277 views Hair , ,

My hair has always been thick it it will always probably be thick but I got my first sew in a month ago and had a horrible experience after taking it out my hair broke off really badly and my hair formed clumps and basically had to be pried apart and I lost a lot of hair maybe 3 inches now it just touches my shoulders. Ill probably never get a sew in for the rest of my life .. But the situation has left my hair soo thin and the only way it feels how it used to is if I blow dry and and I don’t straighten it . How long do you think it will take . A couple of years ago I got box braids I took them out and my hair felt similar to how it does now but the thin feeling went away in about 2 weeks . Any advice or suggestions to help my hair ?

    I KNOW how you feel. Breakage is the worst thing ever and can make you feel pretty sh*tty .I used to relax my hair(never, EVER again would I touch the thing) and I can actually guarantee, I had the worst breakage you’d probably ever come across. I was depressed and so self-conscience about my hair I used to just throw it up. But now, with the right hair care and with patience my hair has grew and has never been healthier.What I suggest:1)Stop with the weaves and extensions. If you MUST wear extensions then get clip-ins. They’re not damaging and can be easily taken out and put back in2)Deep condition hair either once or twice a week. It depends on the dryness of your hair. If you have really dry hair, then deep condition it twice a week.. If it’s just dry, then once a week is great.Try and get a deep conditioner specifically for deep conditioning.3)Trims every 2-3 months.4)MOISTURISE!!!!!! I have curly mixed hair so my hair is naturally drier, I moisturise my hair every day or sometimes every other day. Moisturising will encourage growth to the broken areas, so make sure you pay extra attention to those and apply a generous amount to those areas. To make it thicker, I think just looking after it will promote growth thus making it thicker. However, Nioxin is a GREAT brand and makes hair a bit thicker.https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=nixoxi…I hope I help

    What are you talking about? What is a SEW? Expect your hair to be damaged if you decide to muck around with it. We can’t possibly know how long it might take to regain a natural state since we don’t have a clue as to what that might be.

    It seem like your hair doesn’t like tension. I suggest wearing it down, no braids or ponytails. Let it breath and it should start tryna grow.
