I often wondered why my hair has been falling out for quite some time. I thought that it may have been the perm that I was using because I had done nothing different to my hair. Before my hair rarely experienced breakage. Just the normal shedding. When my hair was at its best I was using designers touch. I loved this relaxer. Then for whatever reason my hair dresser decided to switch it up on me and started using affirm. I may have been 18 at the time. I cant remember. But I didnt ask why because I wasnt necessarily on a hair journey or "crazy" about the length or health of my hair. But I started noticing that my hair would break and shed severely! I tried everything to bring it back to life. But it was hard being that I had no staple products or regiment. Unfortunately, nothing worked! This went on for about 2 years. Meanwhile I was experiencing some health issues so that added fuel to the fire. Eventually the hair in the middle of my head broke off to about and inch. I wore a sew in for a year and a half to grow it back. Took it out got braids afterwards and relaxed again after taking them out. Once again with affirm to see if it was the perm that was causing the hair loss and breakage. After all the growth that I achieved IT STILL BROKE OFF AFTER PERMING! So I was convinced that it was the perm and switched. I tried the organic root stimulator relaxer on my hair and guess what. NO DAMN BREAKAGE. lol. Should of switched a lot sooner.
