How Do I Thicken My Thinning Ends?
Aphogee Two Step Protien Treatment
Q: Hi Camille,
I'm glad I found this site because I really need help. I'm 20 and in college and have been perming my hair since I was 12 and have had no problems taking care of it... till now :(.
Recently in the past year or so I've noticed my shoulder length, healthy hair has been thinning out towards the ends. I mean, you can just about see through my hair; it's getting so thin lately.
I get regular perms every 6-8 weeks depending on how thick my roots are at the time and on my last visit, my hair dresser noticed how it was getting thin and told me to change what I was doing to it style wise and get either braids or a sew-in weave to keep me from touching it and giving it time to grow some. Only problem with that is that when I get braids with weave, I have a lot of shedding hair when I take it out. My hair sheds a lot as it is, so I don't know if my hair that comes out with the weave is normal or if the braids caused the breakage.
Also, how do you care for your hair underneath a sew in weave style?
I feel like I should give you a description of my hair so you can visualize:
My hair is over shoulder length on one side and above shoulder length on the other (and the change in length is pretty noticeable!) It wasn't always like that, but has become that way in the past year. I have healthy, thick hair at the roots, but the ends are getting thinner all the time and I always have hair on my shoulders from all the breakage.
I hope my questions made sense and you can help me repair my hair.
Thank you so much,
