Hi everyone, I hope I someone would kindly help me out as my 5year old boy's hair is in a terrible state.

My guess is he has type 4C, fine hair.

2. His hair is dry and breaks very badly due to poor management.
3. About 3/4 of the hair is still chemically processed but most of the under-growth isn't visible because the hair is packed in these photos.

I would love to achieve the following:
A: stop and repair breakage;
B: Grow his hair as long as possible;
C: Start a transition to natural hair and finish with a routine that is as natural as possible.

I would like to get his hair to look like the last photo even if it takes years.

Please see photos of his hair as it looks at this time:

The extra photo is a group or items I bought off the internet - I've used none but the kids

conditioner to the left of the photo.
Please advise if I need to replace these with other products  if they would be safer and do a

better job.

Warm regards,
Michael.

Wow.   Your 5 year old son has chemically damaged hair. Why is it so important to you to alter your child's hair?

Hi babelipsss, thanks for contributing.

He has had kid’s relaxer applied to his hair about four times in five years (one recently) and to the best of my knowledge, there wasn't any noticeable damage. We applied it sparingly for minimal time to get the hair soft enough to plait.

I noticed progressive damage after moving from a hot, humid country to England during winter.   Low humidity, dry winter air and blast of hot air from heating the home caused his hair to lose moisture, dry our and started to break.
I admit there was gross neglect on my part.

Right now I just use a simple moisturizer and lock it in with coconut oil.

Further contributions from anyone as regards where to go from here would be appreciated.
