Hi, I’ve noticed that my hair was thinning but it wasn’t too alarming until I took these pictures. My hair has been feeling kinda sticky and hard to detangle in the shower lately, and it doesn’t feel as soft as it used to. My roots also feel tense, and it looks like I’m balding, which is the scariest thing I’ve went through since I started my curly hair journey. I don’t really know what to do, I think it might be protein overload because I’ve been using the SheaMoisture Yucca and Plantain Strenghtening masque every week for a few months, and I thought it was a moisturizing deep conditioner not a protein one (and apparently I was wrong so). Knowing that my hair is low porosity already, it might be the reason why my hair has been so fragile lately. I’m looking for a way to reverse the protein overload to gain moisture and restore my hair at the same rime. Like, the pictures below make me cry for real I used to have big hair and I’m way too young to be balding lmao 🤧 I’m thinking about doing moisturizing hair masks and taking hair pills but I’m a little bit skeptical cause there might be protein in them? I don’t even know lmao so if you have any advice I’d be happy to read it! Thank u

froflourish Yes weekly protein treatment is not good. Maybe once a month for low porosity.
froflourish Try finding a certified natural hair stylist or just a great stylist for more advice
curlines @froflourish tysm I’ll try that
curlines @froflourish I will thank you!
tera The same things has happened to me and I started watching a YouTuber named Jassica. She has a product like called Alopecia Free Shop. I stared using her products a month ago. My hair never felt or looked so good. My hair has also stopped shedding.
curlines @tera tysm !! What product did you use? Cause apparently it’s a whole range, is there a product you would specifically suggest? Thank u!!
HairPsalmist Omg! Protein is NEVER good for Low Porosity hair. Maybe every 3 months or so, but it’s better not to use anything with protein at all. I recommend Shea Moisture Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil collection. It’s protein free , light weight, and is focused on hydration, which is perfect for Low Porosity hair. I’m also low porosity so I know what I’m talking about. Protein stuff makes my hair break too.
curlines @HairPsalmist tysm! I was going to start using rice water before noticing that lmao I couldn’t figure out wether it was protein overload or moisture overload and since I thought my deep conditioner was a moisturizing one at first,l really was going to make it 10x worse.. tysm I love this line too it used to be my go to masque but I couldn’t find it at the store so I bought 4 jars of that other one
