I'm a white girl, but my hair breaks too. I hate it. I can't grow it long like when I was a kid. I've been using coconut oil or silicon oil on it to help prevent breakage. The coconut oil is really good and it doesn't cost a lot. I also use it on my dry skin. I got the idea to try it from one of my African American girl friends. It works better than all the expensive hair creams. Taking fish oil pills is supposed to help, but the capsules are to big for me to swallow. They are huge. If your hair is breaking you might want to get a thyroid test done. Hair breakage is one sign of having a low thyroid.
