Breakage and Thinning HELP
Hi everyone, first of all I want to explain what type of hair I had before telling my story. I am a Caucasian female with a fine hair texture. I have always liked to wear my hair straight but I have been having a lot of issues with breaking and split ends because of the flat iron. My hair was wavy/frizzy but it only started about half way down the hair shaft.
This is the first year in about 8 years that I have decided to grow my hair out, I started last summer. Instead of doing a reserve perm without the rods which is what I have done twice before (10 years ago) I thought a keratin treatment would be better. I wouldn't have to style it as much and that should help with the breakage. WRONG! I called my stylist last week and she ordered the treatment another stylist in her salon had used on a client. I'm pretty sure it was the Pravana Keratin Texture Treatment. She applied it last night and when it was done....the top of my hair was SUPER thin and it is flat has a board. I knew there would be a lot of hair coming out but it has caused A LOT of breakage in my hair mainly in my part.
I don't know if I should blame the stylist for not doing it correctly or for her not knowing that my hair may have had to much damage to do it.
I'm in tears, I have to wait the 48 hours to shampoo it and I am terrified. It feels so fragile, like any tug it's gonna snap in half. What do I do? What products can I try to help with the volume? I'm thinking about going to get it cut short again.
I probably should have done more research but isn't the stylist job to know these things? I don't know. I have been crying all day because of this..it's not even been 24 hours and I have been wearing a hat if I have to go anywhere. Please help me.
