What happened to my hair?
I made this same post years ago with no avail, but maybe now that i know more about my hair maybe someone can help. My hair used to be curly, but for 4 years in my early teens, I flattened it and douse it with wave hair products, I attempted to grow it back at 16 and it was this formless fro. Im 23 now, amd realized my hair only remains curly when after i use my ph balanced nexus shampoo and conditioner. I found out my hair requires acid to curl but the effects do not last long. ive used vinegar and lemon juice for more defined curls and longevity but at the end of the day it reverts back to a formless fro. My hair didnt use to do this. i used to could use any shampoo and conditioner without worrying about it messing up my hair, combing didnt use to yank out my curls, nor did my scalp flake intensely. Where did this change come from? Why do I have to work so hard to keep curls that I did nothing to grow in the first place.
