If not I would just go on from where it is. Maybe do some cassia/amla treatments to bring back the curl. Actually it might be a good idea to do that and some deep conditioning treatments. Give it a couple of months of DT, protective styles, and TLC. After a couple of months you can still DC if you feel you need to.

Hello. I'm not sure if my hair is heat damaged or not. When I ask professionals, they say no and credit the difference in textures to be the way my hair grows, but other people tell me it is. I really don't want to cut it because it has grown tremendously within the last year. And truthfully, I don't have the head to pull off a short cut. Laughing

Thanks! I think I'll look into the cassia and alma treatments. I try to DC with every wash, but I don't wash as often as I used to. I may do that for six months, and if the curl doesn't revert I guess I'll gradually begin to get it cut.

Hi Chaka, I love that you have expeienced both ways of going natural. I do have one question for you... did you find that during your transition your new growth was hard to keep soft and moisturized but the relaxed ends were fine?
