I've noticed that.

After bleaching , dying, and straightening my hair. I noticed I had damaged my hair pretty bad.
I got a lot of it chopped off...

My hair use to be wavy / curly.... But now, it's just straight, and it feels stiff... My hair is nothin like it use to be. I condition it a lot! So I don't understand what's going on?

I feel like just chopping MOST it off, and starting over...
My hair length is above my shoulders. Ugh. Suggestions?

  • Stop washing, only conditioner every other day.

  • You fried it and all you can do is have it dut off, or just deal with it and condition it

  • Going to have to chop it off and start over. FYI. You can not bleach, dye and straighten your hair back to back. Du!

  • I have luck with morrocanoil ( not sure about the spelling) helping my hair, but I've never bleached and straightened.

    Well yeah...after all those chemicals, I can imagine your hair will be pretty damaged. If I were you, I'd cut most of the hair off and start over. Also there are several oils and leave-in conditioners that will help a bit too.

    Did you put a chemical straightener on it or do you just straighten it everyday with a flat iron?

  • Yeah- quit bleaching, straightening and dying. Just go natural. It would look prettier.
