A stump in my journey

I've been fully natural for about 3 months now, and recently I've dyed my hair and trimmed my ends but I noticed some breakage, especially when i dry twist my hair at night. I condition my hair when I co-wash which is about 2-3 times a week, and I recently cut down shampooing to only once a month. I have no clue whats going on. Can anyone give me some advice??

    Dyeing your hair has made it more porous which in turn makes it thirstier for moisture and a little weaker. Now, to help strengthen it, you need protein. My recommendation would be to do a protein treatment (Aphogee, Joicom Curl Junkie Repair Me, or plain yogurt, banana and eggs) followed by a moisture/deep treatment. This should stop the breakage.

    In addition, make sure that you're using products that are moisturizing. You should be moisturizing your hair daily so that your hair doesn't dry out and become vulnerable to breakage. Good moisturizers out there include, Oyin Har Dew, Donna Marie SBC, SheaMoisture Curl and Style Milk, and many others.
