Dermatologist 's  Response
hair fall due to straightening is a common occurance. if you are seeing broken shafts, means your is also probably dry.
Dryness can be tackled with use of mild shampoo, oiling the hairs before shampooing(so there is less damage to already brittle shaft); and conditioners.
In addition increase the intake of protein, iron, antioxidants in your diet to improve the new growth.
Taking a hair specific multivitamin supplement like biotin will also help you.

Thanks for the query.
Breakage of hair, split ends,rough hair are all due to the chemical effects of hair straightening.You can use a good conditioner to minimize the effects .Also do not use any chemical products on hair, it will lead to hair fall sometimes even even leading to partial baldness.You will need to frequently oil your hair and use conditioners like Aubreys organic Honey suckle Rose conditioner.Wish you the best.
