How to repair the damage done to my hair from my straightener?
During the school year, I straightened my hair every single day. During the summer, I’ve only straightened it a few times. My hair has been looking dry and frizzy, and I was wondering if there is anything I can do to fix it? I already have a conditioner to help damaged hair, so do not suggest that. Any home remedies or anything? HELP!
sam smith answers:
None. You’re more sensitive than some girls. If you continue to straighten your hair, it could result in hair fall or not growing normally. Hair products can’t reverse the damage done. But you’ll see more & more by the time you’re in your 30’s. I know! I’ve met people in the 70’s and seen their hair. Like smoking or tanning some do NOT get cancer, some who are 2nd hand or 3rd hand smoke DO.
Fix your dry & drizzy hair? Yes. Wash, towel dry, scrunch with gel like Samy, blow-dry briefly using a diffuser no more than 5 mins. Finger comb, and toussle the hair and you’re good to go.
FYI: The hair industry is a billion dollar business, their job is to make profits, and there is no money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss, due to abuse. READ YA HAIR FOR 30 mins. And you’ll understand why.
Also a good book to read is Dr. Seus’ book The Sneetches.

Vitamin D is NOT THE only reason why hair grows. You need: Zinc, Cooper, Vitamin B12, Vitamin A, Biotin, and Folic Acid.
Fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains all supply B-complex vitamins, like biotin, folic acid and vitamin B12, as well as vitamin A, copper and zinc, which are all necessary for remedying dry, brittle hair and nourishing a healthy scalp. Some prime examples of foods that contain these nutrients for healthy hair include:
· Folic Acid – asparagus, beets, broccoli, avocados, Brussels sprouts, beans, chickpeas, soybeans, lentils, oranges, fresh peas, turkey and spinach.
· Biotin – cauliflower, liver, salmon, carrots, bananas, cereals, yeast, and soy flour. Keep in mind that biotin content is reduced when food is cooked or preserved.
· Vitamin B12 – foods rich in vitamin B12 include animal protein (such as beef, lamb, and veal), clams and oysters, liver, fish, milk, and egg yolks.
· Vitamin A – butter, egg yolks, fish, fortified milk, organ meats (such as
liver), and dark green, orange, red, and yellow fruits (persimmons) and vegetables, which all
. Copper – oysters and other shellfish, whole grains, beans, nuts, potatoes and organ meats are good sources of copper. Dark leafy greens, dried fruits such
as prunes, cocoa, black pepper, and yeast are also sources of copper in the diet.
• Zinc – beef, eggs, liver, pork, poultry, and oysters. Also is also abundant in other high-protein foods, like cheese, legumes and nuts.
If having a lush, beautiful mane of healthy hair is important to you, don’t just look to hot oil treatments and shine emollients. Eat these foods for healthy hair and say “bye-bye” to bad hair days.
BUT . . . .It may grow very slowly or none at all if you’ve straightened your hair in the past.
DID YOU SAY they have been falling out alot? Find the ’cause’ before you can find the solution, then eliminate them. Your hair will improve. Remember, whatever it was that caused them to fall out in the first place, it took years to get in your system, it will takes years to flush them down, so don’t expect miracles overnight.
So many reasons for hair loss:
Supplements, steroids, hereditary, hair dyes perming, straightening, diet, having babies (yes I read once it happened to her), stress, medications with testosterone, certain antidepressants, menopause, anti-acne, and too much of everything. Add to that the 7,000 + toxic found in your home, plus pollution found outdoors. Your hair is crying for help!
Doctors don’t know everything, they will just prescribe you a white little pill and everything are OK then they go to their next patient. My mother had suffered for 21 years, and they didn’t even told her she’s got cancer, until we rushed her to ER, then they did more testing, but by then she’s got 3 months to live.
I know hair. I have 4 decades of hair know-how. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy hair down to my knees. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing in the 80’s & 90’s. I’ve known people in their 30’s whose hair stopped growing from ironing their hair in the 70’s.
