Hi there. To be specific & to the point & at the risk of getting fast tracked on the 'unpopularity' ratings with you, Please Stop all you have been doing. Straightening of hair & Shampooing daily are both not desireable activities. Avoid handling your hair too much for awhile. Allow things to settle down. Use a broad toothed comb. Eat a diet rich in trace elements like silica, magnesium, biotin etc eg brocolli et al & you may take specially formulated hair supplements containing these substances to boost the system. Plenty of fluids & relaxation & sleep, avoid stressors or handle them accordingly. These are a few general suggestions. For a more personalised consultation, feel free to call or consult privately with any dermatologist nearest you or do ping your location & will be happy to suggest one. Cheers & Good luck...wish you a good hair day!
