So I did my first wash today on hair that was TR-ed at Hair Village on Fri. Prior to washing I was nervous because the hair seemed kinda stiff and kinky at the root. Sort of dry. I couldn't find the shampoos/conditioners recommended on here so I washed with a biolage shampoo/a conditioner for processed hair.
Everything in my opinion looks beautiful and feels soft except for my roots area. They feel a bit softer than they did prior to washing but still dry. In my opinion, up close, they look a bit funny. I'm just concerned because like I said in the first post, I have always had breakage on top of my hair, even when my hair was healthy, curly, virgin hair. I already detect some breakage and obviously would like to prevent it.
I'd like to know what the best thing is to prevent further breakage and maybe soften up the hair a bit. I am hoping this doesn't turn into bends or is destroyed hair follicles or anything like that. :( I do live in the city so I was considering going to see if I could have Leslie look at my hair, or possibly treat it with something. I could be overthinking this, but I really can't remember last time how my roots felt. I just remember one spot was dry like this, and it did grow out (not into bends) but I had to be super careful with it.
Anyway, my question is, do I sort of ride out having some dry patches of hair, or does it sound like a cause for alarm? I am trying not to spend a lot of money, but if it needs fixing, I would. Again, it really does look nice, but of course I am worried because this is hair on MY head and I'd like to keep it there! Thanks.
And just so everyone knows, I AM SWEARING OFF HAIR VILLAGE FOR GOOD. It's not worth it.
