Lately my relaxed hair has become see- through and thin, from what used to be very, very thick; the kind of thick that breaks a comb, haha

This has happened before, and I braided my hair with weave then with my own hair for two years, and it got very thick again. I'm thinking about getting braided weave in, but I don't know if my hair is strong enough to handle it.
My hair now:

Also, I do NOT want to opt to the BC ( big chop) because my hair is everything to me, it's the only thing that makes me feel good about myself. I just need to know what I can do to help my hair get thicker and longer, and stop looking so separated.
Thank you for reading! :(

Since no one has helped you I will give you some advice. I have never gotten a relaxer or braids or anything like that but I do know from being interested in hair and beauty that relaxers are very damaging to the hair. Relaxers can cause hair to thin, become brittle, dry and cause breakage and hair loss. Many women are now choosing to stop relaxing their hair all together because it is very damaging. This could be the reason your hair has become thinner. When you stop using chemicals your hair can begin to grow in healthier and thicker again.

In addition to ericachristina's advise I would suggest you try Keratin treatments, They are protein rich and also have a relaxing effect on the hair. I would avoid the braiding for a while as that can cause breakage and make your hair thinner and frizzy. Ask you stylist about Keratin treatment. I hope your hair gets thicker and stronger.
