Hello this is my first time posting and i've numbered it to make it easier to answer.

Im 16 and from birth i have had decent 4c hair, my mum took care of it really and It was thick and it sat half way between my neck she never really done anything to it except grease it and it remained tick and it grew only slightly.
1. As i've gotten older i have tried to make my hair grow on my own.and have been obsessed with moisture sealeants etc and other things i have read online
2. In 2014 i straightened my natural hair for the first time ever. The hairdresser done it at a very high heat and it was very very straight. Too straight. I had it straight for a while, after i washed it at the hairdressers they told me that i had heat damage. I continued to wash my hair until it sort of went back to normal but i never fully got my curls back.
2. My hair is very dry and because of this i used a lot of different products that ruined my hair a lot such as 'Africa's best' products my hair started falling out quicker
3. It is very hard to find a good moisturiser 1. because my hair doesn't take moisture it just sits on top and 2. My hair has high shrinkage so any product that has water in it makes my hair shrink and knotty
4. Now i think i have split ends. At the moment a lot of my hair is falling some of the strands have bulbs and some are thin like they have split. I partly think this is due to stress because i have just finished my exams but I'm not sure
5. I'm just so confused i have no idea what products to use i am trying coconut oil,olive oil and Shea butter (all individually) I prefer natural products because of bad experience with store bought products, but i don't think any of these are moisturisers and i don't know how to put together a simple hair regimen. I would really love some help.
6. I am washing my hair with moroccan oil shampoo and conditioning it with Aussie moist conditioner twice every month, i use a blow dryer and i have recently started sectioning my hair whilst washing
7. I am still lost i'm just so worried because my hair used to be so thick and a decent length but now its all going. I can just pull my hair slightly and and several strands fall out and most of them have small knots at the end plus my hair is just getting shorter. I'm not sure if i should just cut it all off, cut it bit by bit or leave it and try something different or improve what I'm doing now. I have no idea what to do and I'm so so scared.

Thank you!
