Three types of Hair and Relaxing

Hi girls! I am a latina with crazy curly hair. Because of relaxing my hair with out touch-ups and the Keratin treatment my hair has three types of curls. Its driving me nuts. I have 3b on my roots, 3a from half to end and underneath i have 3c. It is always puffy, hard to shape or style. Im looking into relaxing it again. How can I manage to get the same texture all over. oh and btw, it has been thinning on my crown. :cry: Please help!!

    If your hair is thinning then don't relax again and don't use any sort of chemical on your hair like dye until you have found out what is causing it it.

    Go over to the 4 board to see posts on people who have bald patches in their hair and have been force to go natural because of it. Some of them still don't have hair in places.

    You should go to the doctor to have a blood tests to check you don't have any vitamin and mineral deficiencies and hormone problems.

    If the tests reveal nothing then you need to look at your lifestyle i.e. do you sleep enough, eat properly and how you manipulate your hair.

    Only once your hair grows back have another relaxer. However get this relaxer done at a salon where the stylist doesn't go over your old processed hair.

    In regards to getting the same texture back you can't. You have to cut your hair off and start again because once hair is permanently damaged by chemical or thermal processing you can't fix it as hair is dead. You can however cheat and use rollers to make your hair have a more even curl pattern.

    Thank you bluebood. Yes, I found out my hair is thinning becuase of my new diet and detox. I have lost 50 pounds in 5 months. The nutricionist sent me Vitamins and a special shampoo. I just strated last week. We are expecting great results to show in 30 days. That will be right before Xmas. In regards, to the texture. It hard to shape of style my hair. I want an even texture…don't know what to do?

    I'm in the UK so can't help you there. There is a part of the forum where you can find stylists but as I'm typing on a phone can't link you to it.

    In regards to styling it's likely a curly hair style like acheived using curlformers or similar may help. There are threads on it on a different part of the forum so it's worth searching. You can also look for YouTube videos on it.
