I'm a newbie to this forums, but I've seen the great advice you all give up each other and I feel this community is very knowledgable!
So, here's my problem..
I had box braids in for four months (not the same hair for four months) to help my hair get thicker and longer. In September, I took them out and got a relaxer. Yes, my hair got longer (very much so, if I may add!), unfortunately, I had to cut a lot of it off because... I think my hair dresser said my ends were unhealthy? My hair ends are still thin, she never cut all of my ends off yet because my mom instructed her to wait.
Btw, while I had braids I did moisturize them and did not use heat on them, I did wear it in a pony tail a lot, though. It sure if that matters.
How many inches do you think needs to be cut?
What do you think caused this?
This is what it looks like.
