    Are you using a heat protectant?

    Also, right now, DO NOT straighten anymore!! Thats the quickest way back to healthy hair. Also, if you do not like wearing it down naturally, try using pins or clips or something to style it in a way you do like it. If you are looking for styles, many members with short hair would be glad to help.

    Are you using the CG method of no-shampoo? Also, are you conditioning everyday you wash, using a leave-in, etc etc?

    Sounds like you've suffered some intense damage (heat and chemical) to your hair. Protein treatments help, but only so much, same goes for conditioning. Eventually you may just have to start over and that means cutting. It sucks, but I know from experience, that heat damage happens to the best of us.

    You'd probably see a difference if you cut it all off.
