well, if you're not experiencing that much breakage that means you didn't tilt the moisture/protein balance scale to bad and it shouldn't take long to fix if you're consistent. you can't even afford suave naturals almond & shea? it's only like $2. when mixed with honey and glycerin and steam, it will turn into a good deep conditioning.
You should definitely skip the mid protein treatment! and I'm honestly not sure about overlapping your relaxer on purpose, if that's what you mean. logically, it does make sense, but from what I remember from my research, a lot of people advise against it. but if you mean to just get a normal relaxer on your new growth, I... still... don't... know. there are pros and cons with both:
PROS (of relaxing your hair with protein overload)
- since you're been stretching for a long time, you probably have a lot of new growth, which might be making the breakage worse
- if you don't protect your hair before the relaxer (like oiling it), it might break down a little of the proteins in the length of your hair
- having you hair all one texture will make it easier to battle the protein overload
- the relaxer process might dry your hair more, especially if you don't protect the length, and you already have a protein/moisture imbalance
- usually you can your hair to be strong and in a healthy condition before putting any chemical in it
but, since you said you're experiencing little breakage, I'm leaning more towards relaxing soon. like my brains is 65% saying to relax, and 45% to wait. maybe you should wait for more feed back, lol.
