I straighten my hair very often. My natural hair is curly. Lately I have been having an itchy scalp and a lot of hair loss. I have never lost this much hair, ever! To tell you the truth I am a bit scared. I have stopped the straightening and all, but I need to know what else I can do! Or something easier to do that will not damage my hair so much, yet still keeping it under control (since my curls are hard to work with) Thanks!!

Straightening your hair will cause severe breakage if it has been done over a long period of time. So it is good that you have stopped doing so. The best thing now is to give your hair plenty of TLC: Use good moisturizing products and try to let your hair dry naturally with the use of a soft gel such as Razzamatazz Jellee

Can someone tell me how to stop my hair snapping and breaking off, it seems to have taken a turn for the worse and before long looks like there is going to be no length left in it at all. I have
pcos which in turn can affect these things but there must be something to do in order to save my last locks, it is really affecting my confidence. I have started to severely cut down on my ghds but my hair is way to curly without.

Your hair is breaking because it has lost its elasticity (so it is brittle rather than flexible) and its tensile strength, so any pulling causes it to break off. This stems from a loss of moisture within the internal hair fibres and this must be replaced if you are going to stop your hair breaking. Firstly try to minimise your use of hair straighteners, they can be very damaging on the hair. The best one to use to prevent damage and hair breakage is the Remington Wet2Straight.
This straightens your hair extremely well but reduces the amount of moisture lost from the fibres and so drastically reduces splitting and breakage. It is also very important that you use a good strong, treatment conditioner one a week to put back the moisture which the straighteners have removed. Try the Trichology Pre-Wash Reconditioning Treatment
You should notice a big improvement in your hair in no time.

I am naturally a mousey brown but have always dyed it blonde with great results then 3 months ago I had minstrel coloured streaks put in and my hair snapped in quite a few places I have now been having just my roots done and it has gone yellow, my hairdresser has advise not to put any more colour on the hair but it is a nightmare. I have been conditioning and using a conditioner treatment but it just looks like straw literally. It is in a bob just below the jaw and it is also like baby hair.

That is a really tricky situation to be in and a very frustrating one at that! It seems to me that you are doing the right things to combat any more breakage. I would advise that you have regular in salon professional treatments and keep having your regular trims. There are colour options that you could do without damaging your hair, you could opt to step away from the blonde and have an all over light brown/dark brown glosser that would knock out the yellow and give a rich finish - which, in turn stops you from using harsh bleach or hi lift tint on your hair/roots to create the blonde. I would also suggest for a month to only wash your hair every 2-3 days and try not to use any flat irons pr heated appliances for a month if you can cope. But a good dry shampoo to combat those roots and your hair will grow through with renewed bounce and health. You just have to keep persevering for a little while!
