    I don't know, but I suggest you try protein. My daughter's hair got really mushy and breakage prone when I put a texturizer in it. Now that she's transitioned back to natural and I've been using protein treatments once a week her hair is almost back to normal. It's much stronger and is growing in very healthy. I keep her hair in protective styles (twists) 24-7 right now, until I can grow it longer. It's a little past apl but it shrinks up to neck length in twists.
