Will my curl pattern ever return!

Post by naturallydevine on 7th March 2011, 12:12 am

Good Evening curlfriends,

I flat ironed a section of my hair just to see the true length. After seeing my growth I washed and conditioned my hair as I normally do. OMG! Now I have a section of my hair that will not curl back up. It is in the front of my head and is very obvious because it is so straight. Is there anything I can do to make it curl back up.

Did you use a heat protectant? How many times have you washed it?

Yes, I used a protectant. I have washed it well over 10 times.

Sounds like heat damage Sad

Try doing a protein treatment. If that doesn't work, then it is indeed heat damage.

I agree with LL

How hot was the flat iron?
When straightening (even for length checks), I stretch my hair either with a roller-set or banding - then flat iron on med-low only. That will decrease the chances of heat damage.

I agree. Try the protien treatment. What did you wash with? I used alot of heat on the front section of my hair ( on high with no protectant) lol. (Idk why. Im done with heat though!) and i was afraid I had heat damage but I washed it with tea tree shampoo and it perked right up! Curlier than ever! Maybe you should try it?

It sounds like heat damage... (I know some ladies said that already, lol)

Was this the first time that you flat-ironed ur hair since your BC?
