I think I burned my hair two weeks ago when I gave it two separate weaves - one day after the other.
The weaves turned out OK, as in presentation, but now my hair is unbelievably frizzy; its texture is crumpled-up and completely unhappy; and frankly, I wouldn't be at all surprised if it ALL suddenly were to detach at the roots and land gracefully in one big clump on the floor.
I am trying not to blow dry it much, but that's hard because it doesn't look so great un-done. It's fine when I comb it after conditioning it, but as soon as it begins drying (even air-drying) it becomes totally unmanageable and frizzy. (I really fried it.)
Any suggestions on how to curb the damage I've done - besides just waiting five years?
I found a Bedhead product at Costco that seems to be helping a little bit (it's been more than 3 weeks). For the large bottle of conditioner it was about $10.
I began using the Garnier Fructis about three months ago for regular shampooing, conditioning. I like it more than others I've used since my decade or so of using the Kirkland shampoo and conditioner (it's such a great deal).
Conclusion to story: Don't weave your own hair, or better yet, don't ever get a highlight or weave. I could have avoided this mess, plus saved a ton of money over the years.
