(female) Bizarre! I have fairly healthy thick hair. The two major times I have had it professionally relaxed; it starts shedding, then breakage, etc. I come out of the perm and go to pressing. Now I am 40, pretty active and like to swim. My hairdresser put a texturizer on it. It looked great for eight weeks and now the pattern is starting all over. I keep it mosturized, I have it professional done weekly,and do apply alot of heat. One side of my hair grows thick and the left side seems to be hurting. What is the trouble? I sleep with a silk scarf, I exercise, etc. HELP!!
Hair care reflects how your manage your hair as it dries in the environment (sun, wind), with blow drying and washing, perms, etc. As hair become dry, it can become fragile. It sounds like something that you are doing is not going well. Sit down with your stylist and see what changes need to be made to address the problem. Hair breakage is a symptom of a hair management problem. Thinning on one side vs the other could be either a hair management problem or a medical problem in which you could be damaging the root of the hair more on one side than the other.
