I have thick, course hair that has become very dry, brittle, and stiff, I think, due to TR, BKT, color, heat styling, and possibly age (I'm turning 40 this year).

I have cut quite a bit of it off and there's really nothing I can do with it right now but put it up in a bun. I can't even really wear a ponytail because the ends are so stiff that they stick straight out, rather than curving under,

I know I probably shouldn't get my hair wet every night, but it feels much better when it is wet. It has a spongy, porous feeling, but I prefer that to the brittle texture it has when it dries.

Lately, my routine has been to put deep conditioner in it at night (mositure, not protein -- usually Kerastase Oleo Rleax) and sleep with it in my hair overnight. Then I was it out in the morning, put it in a bun, and let it air dry.

I have heard that it is possible to "over condition" so I'm hoping that I'm not making my hair worse. I don't think it feels worse than it did when I started this routine, but it doesn't feel much better either.

So ... my questions are:

1. Is it o.k. to leave conditioner in my hair overnight every night. Can anybody recommend a good one for this purpose?

2. I have sought advice from several different stylists about my hair damage and had lots of different opinions on what went wrong with my hair, including: heat damage, TR damage, just my natural texture coming back. My TR stylit is in NYC, so it's not possible for him to look at my hair. How can I determine what went wrong???? My previous hair history:

thick, dense, course, 50-70% grey hair

1. 20 vol. single process color every 3-4 weeks

2. 5 BKT's (marcia) from March, 2007- November, 2007

3. Liscio TR -- pre-softened with cystine (sp?) and then straightened with strongest formula (very experienced stylist) - June, 2008

4. Once or twice per week salon blow-outs from November, 2007- August, 2008 without washing in between.

5. My hair looked o.k. for the first two months after the Liscio straightener in June. Not as much body as I would have liked, but healthy. I started noticing the damage in August.
I had a bit of breakage, which stopped after I did three weekly protein treatments. My hair is not breaking any more, but it feels even worse than it did before. For the last month, I've been leaving in conditioner overnight and letting it air dry


Sorry for the long post. I am devastated about the condition of my hair and I'm determined to figure out how to fix it. I am considering just cutting it all off and starting over because it feels so dry and brittle.

Any advice would be appreciated.
