Stop using any kind of heat on your hair, Alternate protein treatments ( such as this product) and deep conditioners every week. Don't use gels or products containing alcohol as this will make your hair dry and brittle. Try using cleansing conditioners or cowashing rather than shampoo in your hair. ALWAYS use a leave in conditioner, or leave a little regular conditioner in your hair after cleansing. If your hair is long and thick, remember that you need to use A LOT of conditioner in your hair. Use a wide tooth comb to distribute thick conditioner through your wet, cleansed hair and LET IT DRY WITHOUT touching it. Your hair should still be curly once it dries ( although it may shrink a little or alot in length depending onhow tight your curl pattern is). Blessings!

You need to just take better consistent care of your hair. I think ouidad is good after your hair is in a better place. i would use products like Miss Jessie's rapid recovery and curly pudding. Interestingly enough, the creators of Miss Jessie have a similar ethnic mix to yours. You also should trim your hair frequently and keep it very moisturized. Hope that helps.

I too had parents that nearly ruined my hair growing up. It started to grow super slow, and was frizzy all the time and just nappy. I've been using Quidad hair products for a about a year now, my hair started to grow faster, the frizz is gone, and my hair is really soft and managable. I use Deva Curl No-Poo and Conditioner, but I use Quidad deep treatment once a month, and Quidad styling products... moisture lock, climate control gel, & botanical spray.

You need some MAJOR deep conditioning and stay away from any heated products. Try Lush's Curly Wurly shampoo with their Retread conditioner and R&B as a leave in conditioner. A hair mask like Hsua Wen Wau or Jasmine & Henna Fluff-eaze would really help too.

The Ouidad 12 Minute Deep Treatment Intensive Repair would be a great product to start with. The treatment allows your hair to be deeply conditioned and have a natural shine when you're done.
-Saturate clean, damp hair with treatment.
-Cover with a shower cap and heat with a blow dryer.
-Allow warm product to remain on hair for 12 minutes.
-Before rinsing, add conditioner to seal in treatment.
-Rinse both products out together.
