1) don't flat iron it too much. stick to blow drying once a week if you want it to be straight. realize that you need to give your hair some time to be natural and not touched or tampered with every single day. i used to flat iron my hair everyday but then i realized that i need to leave it alone if i want it to grow. 2) conditioner. leave conditioner in for at least 30 min everytime you wash your hair and then rinse it out thoroughly. 3) very minor haircuts once a month. slowly as your hair grows, you can trim a bit of the end so that it won't continue to break off. 4) realize that it will take a lot of time and foster some patience. 5) purchase a leave-in conditioner and oil (i use one 'n only moraccan argan oil: styling cream and oil) it works like a charm. my hair used to be at my shoulders and in 4 months, its down my back. good luck!

try some natural way of gaining ur hair back before u hit any doctors door! once u r there, doctor might prescribe u such medicine that u would need to continue for years. these medicines have some side effects too.

Condition your hair more often and refrain from dyeing; at least a month.

You can try to nurse your hair back to health, but it is really going to be difficult. Have you ever considered a big chop? This is cutting off all of the damaged hair and starting out fresh and natural. This would cut off all of the breakage and give you a head start at growth and retaining length. If you dont buckle down and get the cut, you would have to baby your hair back to health. Also if you dont get the cut, you are going to have to be extremely patient. With damaged ends, you will not see a change in your hairs length. Your hair is constantly growing, but with damage it is also constatly breaking. Im not trying to push you into cutting all your hair off, but if you beat the damage at its own game, you're starting off with fresh healthy hair. Keep your hair moisturized with oils and good conditioners always. Stay away from chemicals and heat. I wish you the best!

Do not even touch it for a while ! I'm serious. My hair was dry too, I used to flatiron it everyday and play with it a lot, one day I just decided to leave it and not flat iron it at all, I literally haven't straightened my hair in 8 months ! There wasn't a day during those 8months where I straightened it. All I did was wash my hair every two or three days, brush it, tie It up and leave it like that. Also leaving it out is good as it let's the hair breathe and grow. Eat lots of healthy foods like eggs, foods with lots of vitamins and when u shower your hair apply some coconut oil and comb It through your hair. Unfortunately you are going to have to cut it for the better as it will grow quicker, it will be hard to deal with now but in the long run you will see a huge improvement and you will not regret it. I'm so proud of myself for not playing with my for those 8 months because seriously my hair is way thicker, shinier and much healthier :) oh and when you stop playing with and just tie your hair back it will be less frizzy as it is not used to being straightened.
