Q.
My hair is dry, brittle and breaks off. I haven’t permed my hair in about six months. It has broken off all the way down to my new growth in some parts. I also get sores on my scalp. Can you help? —Kia

A.
It sounds like your previously relaxed, weak hair is breaking away from your new growth, which is stronger. A hot oil pre-shampoo treatment will help soften the new hair. Make sure you pre-treat before each shampoo and condition. Using protein at this point will only make your hair hard and brittle. You will also need to get to the salon and get a good haircut. Take control and start trimming the weak and damaged hair.
