Ladies.. my hasn't grown in over 2 years and I am very very discouraged.
My hair used to be past my shoulders and down my back. Now my hair is not even past HALF of my neck. It is ridiculously short.
I am not used to having short hair as I maintained my hair over the years but I don't know what happened.
Last year my mother, aunt and step father died on three separate occasions (all in one year) and I have been extremely stressed out.
Now losing another part of me (my hair) is making me give up on this hair journey.
I relax my hair every month.. with Organic Root Simulator Extra Strength Relaxer (since my hair is thick)
Then from there I would use the Silk Elements Kera Minerals Smoothing Deep Conditioner

After towel drying my hair I apply.... the Ion Miracle Leave In Conditioner:

Then I wrap my hair around and put the Ampro Gel
Another thing when I gel my hair my edges are so short and hairline is pushed back where I have to comb over bangs just to cover my sides. I cannot wear my hair back in a drawstring ponytail without geling down my bangs in the front because thats how bad my side edges are.
I know gel is not good but its the only thing I have used that keeps my hair tamed.
BREAKAGE - My hair breaks off extremely after every wash. I cannot wash my hair without more than 10 strands of hair being all over the place.. and thats even after applying leave in conditioner on a regular!!!
I was a product junkie and I bet there isn't a product u can recommend that I didn't use.. and the past items I used never worked
I believe I have thick kinky hair but its not retaining length.. I've tried oils, gels, mouuse, pomades, butter, creams, lotions, you name it... nothing works.
I've tried ACV rinse.. applying EVOO .. no luck.
I need you ladies to help me grow back my hair.. I promise to not wear weaves again if I can get it past my shoulders.
Please answer these questions as well before you respond...
1. Should I stop using relaxers?
2. What can really stop the breakage of my hair?
3. Should I consider Hair finity vitamins? I really want my hair to grow
Please help me ladies.. I want to get my hair back on track. It's been 2 years!!
