After a 7-8 month period of obssessively straighting my hair on a monthly, sometimes bi-monthly basis my hair began to break down. I naturally have thick coarse curly black middle eastern hair and have always wanted soft straight hair.
I have recently shaved my head due to the severe chemical damage caused by the straightener. Once my hair starting growing back I noticed that some hairs were thicker than others and felt wierd in texture; almost worse off than before this chemical warfare. One month later, I shaved my head again and when the hair came threw this time they seemed to have more of a even diameter/ texture.
Now my questions are:
Should I keep shaving my head or just let it grow back this time? Also, are there any vitamins/minerals or supplements that I can take to restore my natural hair condition? It feels as if my hair texture has been permantely altered, is this even possible?
Thanks so much,
