What's Happening to My Hair? Breakage?

I'm concerned about breakage. It's definitely a new experience for me. I battled shedding and chronic split ends (I diagnosed myself) and I'm quite proud of myself because I personally feel I have reduced my shedding and my ends look great.
  1. I keep my hands out of my hair more
  2. Green tea/ coffee rinse weekly.
  3. Exercising 
  4. I improved my eating habits
  5. Increased water intake (slightly)
  6. Search and destroy (a lot)
  7. Regular trims (1/2 -1 1/2 in.)
My hairline has always been like this but
this time it feels off.
My main concern is my hairline right above the ends of my eyebrows. The only thing that is consoling me is the fact that its happening to both sides of my head. So I'm thinking/hoping that it's normal. Perhaps it's presenting a problem to me because it's not bone-straight. I noticed the micro-curls after last weeks wash...other than that, I can't figure out what's going on. 

The breakage that definitely happened a few months back was behind my right ear. I don't know what the culprit was but I can't dwell, I just need to let it grow back. 

I did a hard protein treatment on my last wash after I clarified my hair. I love clarifying! What I will do for my edges is try not to be dramatic. For some reason I got it in my head that soon I'll have no edges and then I'll be bald! Sigh, I must correct before this before that happens
This is what I did with my hair after clarifying and hard
proteining. Two strand twists that I put up in
two purple flexi-rods.
  1. Research about edges. 
  2. Research about breakage
  3. Tie my scarf differently
  5.  Castor oil? (research) 
Urghhh I get really tired of my hair problems. I'm thinking about letting a stylist texlax my hair...thinking about that 80 bucks I'll spend. Perhaps I'll just shave it off! Did I mention I can be dramatic?

Any tips?


  1. I love the texture of your two strand twists! Try castor oil and be gentle with your hair line. It doesn't look like you have much to fret over darling!

    1. Lol thanks KPL, I can be dramatic. I think castor oil will be my next hair buy.

  2. Привет! Мне бы хотелось открыть салон парикмахерскую. У кого-то из читательниц есть опыт в этом? Очень большой выбор оборудования для салонов красоты. Кто может помочь советом? Какой магазин лучше выбрать для то чтобы купить УФ лампа 36 вт и это УФ лампа 18 вт. Я выбираю среди этих магазинов,,,
