i've been transitioning about a year now. and lately i've been puttin a lot of heat on my hair. i'm now going back to only putting heat on it atleast once a month again, but i've noticed that my curls aren't as tight & coiled as they were before. if i take care of it more & condition it with out heat, will it go back to its natural state? or am i stuck with limp curls forever? :(

    it only takes one time for heat damage! if you constantly you have heat then curls are going to be loose.

    Awww :(

    Allme is right. I attempted to straighten my hair ONCE, luckily I started at the nape of my neck, but the curls NEVER returned. I tried everything, then I finally had to cut the damaged part off. This is why I will never straighten my hair again, I'm too scared. So if I want straight hair...I weave it up! lol

    Try a heavy protein treatment, that might help, like Aphogee. This is also why I am too scared to straighten. I spend WAY too much time caring for my Izzy.
