UH OH HAIR PROBLEMS!!!

I started growing my hair out the past 3 years and it’s down to my shoulders.
The problem is that I have frizzy/semi-curly hair and it has constantly gotten in massive tangles and knots and I have been too lazy to wash my hair and it ends up in massive knots so I end up ripping large chunks of it out every few months. I now have extremely thinning hair and you can see my scalp much more clearly than before.

What are some basic hair maintenance things I need to start doing?

Will my hair grow back? I hate how incredibly thin my hair is now, I always wear a hat, it’s embarrassing.
Is there a hair oil/treatment I could buy and put on my scalp? Vitamins/Supplements I could take?

The only way to keep it from getting tangled is to straighten it. How do I do that? Flat iron?
I put in conditioner but it doesn’t do much.

    You have to blowdry and brush it after you shower. If you’re already doing that you’re on a whole other level and just need to cut it.

      You should also eat more protein and take biotin, Vit C and folic acid. If you’re feeling fancy use rice water between shampoo and conditioner.

      Curly/wavy hair should be combed wet or you will damage it, the texture of the hair becomes kinda ‘prickly’ after drying and tangles. Straight hair should be brushed after drying.

      I don’t do that
      Also I wash my hair once every month.
      Is this the reason why its hecked and I look like an old lady?

            It’s general oil and shed skin buildup, shed hair tangling into growing hair cause you’re brushing your wavy hair dry and it’s just generally pretty gross and unhygienic. It should be washed at least weekly. Start taking care of it or cut it off if you can’t.

            Okay, so follow these steps

            and you’ll make a good start on saving it. You’ll need rosemary oil for your scalp and ends, biotin and folic acid supplements (I think you can get specific gummies for haircare), you’ll also need specifically moisturising shampoo and conditioner. I brush in a collagen leave-in after towelling off my hair and it really improves the condition.

            I have long wavy hair, too, and it’s quite thick and lustrous, you just need to be prepared to do upkeep or you’ll end up matted

            ok thanks bro

            one more thing, If I took care of my hair would I be able to run my fingers through it and it would be soft? like it wouldnt get tangled?

            even after washing my hair I cant run my fingers through it without it knotting

            is hair supposed to feel dry? mine does

            Yes, if you look after it you can run your fingers through it. With wavy hair it won’t be perfect like straight hair is and will kind of curl around your fingers but the overall sensation is still smooth. It sounds like yours is very dry and needs a lot of TLC and moisturising, but I think you can save it if you love it anon. Whilst it’s so dry I wouldn’t use any heat treatments, either, just as an aside.

            ok thanks, I appreciate it

            what about the roots? I pulled out so much hair and it looks very thin
            will the hair grow back?
            Should I buy stuff to rub on my scalp?

            You’ll need to be patient and gentle. If it’s tangled resist dry brushing, just get it completely wet before brushing it and try to brush it with a leave in moisturising product. Rosemary oil is excellent for your scalp and growing hair, you can also take biotin and folic acid to support quality and growth. A high protein diet will also help.

            I’ve heard good things about Rogain and tret for hair re-growth too. Since your issue is you’ve pulled it out and it’s not pattern baldness, you should be able to get it back.

    Semi-related issue to OP, my hair is usually pretty thick and matte, but for the past few months its been alot thinner and wispier. Kind of feels like its damaged in some way or another. It’s also been shedding in the shower a bit more steadily, not like hair loss clumps but more strands than im used to seeing (although that might just be because I’m scared to wash it so the loose hairs build up). Do I have to buzz and regrow good hair or can I fix this by setting some rigid schedule of washing/conditioning?

      Go get a checkup if you’re suddenly shedding with no obvious cause, you might have an iron deficiency, an illness or an allergy. Unless you just absolutely cooked it with bleach or something.
