Deep Condition Deep Condition Deep Condition. Ive also read that protein treatments work. To me however your hair looks pretty good. I cant really see the damage.

I dont know how true it is, but I heard that once the hair is damaged there is nothing you can do to repair it, the damaged hair should be cut off. Just make sure the new growth is properly cared for.

Let me just say that your hair is just BEAUTIFUL!

I have heat damage from blowdrying and straightening my hair for 2 weddings last June and damage from colouring my hair quite frequently but it's coming around because of the DC that I do each week. I heat some conditioner in the microwave for around 15 seconds, then I put in a big spoon of honey and two spoons of EVOO and mix until it's the same consistency as a normal hair conditioner. Leave it in for at least 2 hours.

I've noticed a HUGE difference in the texture of my hair.

My friend straightens her hair all the time and it takes her like a week of deep condish then the curls bounce right back. I don't call it heat damage unless you went over it like 5 times at 450 degree heat and you saw smoke.

give it a couple more washes and the curls should come back. You just scared them away for a couple days. next time be more gentle and use less heat. Wash, condition. Put a little leave in and heat protector and put hair in like 6 plits/braids so hair stretches. let air dry for 30 minutes. Take out plaits then use blow drier on cool setting getting it as dry and straight as you can, then dry remainder on regular heat. Use about 375 on straighter and do 2 passes only

You can also try a hair re-constructor, my fav is Ion (Sally's). I use it about 1x a month and get SUPER curly hair. My aunt experienced heat damage. During her poo routine, I applied the reconstructor and it definitely encouraged her once 4a stringy pieces to loop, although the strands didn't return to their full curly glory.

Maybe worth a try.

Yes! I love the Ion Reconstructor. The price is very reasonable and I use it on my hair once a month during the summer when I'm in areas where I can experience mild damage from the sun. My hair bounces right back to where it was!

Do you wet your hair when you deep condition or not?
