Can someone advise me what to do about my hair??!! I live in Colorado where during the humidity, it is just too trough to keep my hair straight. during the summer my sister relaxed it, but my hair is very resistant to relaxing. it was puffed up within a month. Anyway, the sad part of the story is now it feels like paper, is thin and breaking. How do I get iot back into shape? I hate the hot irons and rollers, but it will not hold a curl and looks like crap. I keep trying to keep it moisturized and not so dry, but it's dry anyway and I am afriad it will break even more. I have beent aking vitamins to help strengthen it too.

My hair isnt super flat when its been relaxed after a while either. Sometimes it just needs to be straightened. Try protective styling. the least amount of strain possible. Usually people would recommend braiding, but that may really put your hair through hell. Try ponytails and bunning. Avoid scrunchies with metal ends and rubber bands. Maybe a weave? I know nothing about them except if your not careful it can take your hair out. Like if it is too tight, it can wipe out your edges. And if it's not moisturized under, you can have a bunch of hair loss. Or i've heard of people doing hot oil treatments with a wig. They place the oil on their hair, plastic wrap it and put their wigs on top. Try protein treatments. It may sound strange, but mayo is great for protein treating. Put it in your hair when washing and let it sit. I'm not sure how long. Whatever feels right. Dont do it too often, protein damage will worsen your hair. There is also Elasta Qp re-constructor. It's in-expensive and seems to work well. And moisturize! Moisturize! Moisturize! You may hear it a lot. But seriously, do it. Coconut oil, almond oil, castor oil, extra virgin olive oil, any other kind. Do hot oil treatments. And moisturize daily. if you need to, twice a day. I use Luster's Pink Lotion. It may have mineral oil (not great for full moisturizing) so do not rely on it. Maybe you may also want to invest in Biotin pills. Maybe Hair vitamins. I use hairfinity. Somethings you should know is, there's shedding for some. You may need garlic supplements. To some people, it causes odd dreams so maybe you shouldnt take it at night. And if you don't drink enough water, it can break your skin out. But it's the same with all vitamins. Theres also intense hair growth vitamins. I dont have any experience with it so you may need to youtube it. And relaxing. If that's what you want, keep up with them. two diff't hair types can cause damage. If you want to wear it naturally, you may want to cut off the relaxed ends. Or research transitioning without the Big Chop. Good luck and remember moisturize!

i really recommend protein in your regimen. i hair is very thick, coarse, and kinky, so even when i relax with a super it doesn't really go full straight. Protein has helped me strengthen my hair against flimsiness that comes from damage or bad weather. For the past year or so i've been wearing weaves as a protective style but you can opt for many other ways like buns, bantu knots, braids, etc. Include protein it really helps make the hair less resistant to breakage, you can start weekly protein treatments along with weekly moisture treatments to try getting your hair back in a good state. moisturize and seal daily if you have your hair out, just spritz your hair with a moisturizing conditioner mix with water, and then seal with an oil afterwards. 
I know exactly how you feel i live in MD and the weather can be a real downer at times, but when you establish a regimen that works for you will be able to overcome it!
