a little reassurance needed
So my first post here was the horror of removing dreadwax done by a "professional". After a PAINFUL and SCARY process, I got my hair back to it once was without cutting it off (thankfully).
Afterwards, I've noticed my has changed. In talking with my sister-in-law who is knowledgeable about hair, she commented on how the elasticity was damaged from the process the " professional" had done. My hair was definitely 'whispy' and looked really thin/brittle. It hurt to comb it for a couple weeks (due to scalp damage).
So a couple months later, here I am now. My hair feels A LOT better. But my desire to dread has not left me. If I were to pursue it again, I would do completely natural (wash and separate). But having such a TERRIBLE experience, I'm pretty scared to give it a go again. I know the last method was terrible on its own, but nevertheless, it has scarred me. The decision is ultimately up to me, but I posted looking for some support/reassurance. Not really sure what I'm seeking, but I figured this was a start. Thanks for listening.
