My hair is similar. Even dying it can damage it so much. I’ve really cut back on using any heat tools. When I put it up, I use spiral hair ties, like these:

Before I brush out my wet hair, I use a detanglar spray. I like the Not Your Mother’s line. Their “Way to Grow” Leave in Conditioner: is great. 

I also love “Beach Babe” Soft Waves: I use it on my brushed wet hair, do some light scrunching with my hands, and it dries on the way to work. It’s my go-to hair that doesn’t require any heat.

I lost about half my hair on my head about 2.5 years ago. I went to the dermatologist and they made some recommendations as well as things I found online; now I have very thick hair again. Both my hairdresser and strangers have complemented the thickness this year! 

Dermaolotgist recommended: Rogaine (hair growth treatment, you put it in your hair once a day. You can buy it in Walmart, on amazon, etc. Theres off-brands too if you want to save $). I used this for about 2 years and now only use it like once a week. 

You should also buy the Nioxin line of hair products. I personally use the shampoo and conditioner and the root lifter. World of difference and there’s a ton of reviews. You can buy on amazon, their website, or hair salons. I still use this currently. I ran out for about two weeks and noticed immediate hair loss. 

I was also recently prescribed spironolactone for acne and apparently it’s good for hair loss too. I haven’t noticed a difference but my hair is already thick so..

if you want your hair to stop falling out, I would just get the Nioxin. If you want thicker hair/your hair to grow back, use the Rogaine too. 

Good luck to you!

I have the same issue. I try to rub some pure aloe (and sometimes coconut oil) on my scalp a few times a week and let it sit. I feel like the aloe really helps with growth. Also I drink collagen powder every morning and take a vitamin e every other day. 
I have lots of allergies, so I can’t use many traditional beauty products, but heat and coloring is super damaging, so if possible, lessen that.

Nioxin is the only proven hair regrowth treatment. Costco has a knockoff Kirkland brand one you can buy for a bit cheaper. It really works but you have to use it everyday for atleast 3-6 months to see results. You won’t see miracles in a few weeks.

Check your diet and digestion. Could also be medication. I tend to lose a lot of hair around my periods. Darned hormones.

Did you have your vitamin D levels checked?  One day out of nowhere my hair started falling out by the handfuls. It actually scared the crap out of me. Previously I had been diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency, but I had stopped taking it for some time.  So, looked it up and hair loss is one of the symptoms associated with vitamin D deficiencies. I started taking high doses of vitamin D, and within two weeks my hair loss stopped. Now I take a regular dose daily and haven’t had the issue again.

Folic acid! I literally had bald spots, it has helped soo much. It also seems to make my hair grow faster!
