Recently, I let a salon use a flat iron on my hair. Never having done this before I had no idea what to expect. What I had later was damage so severe that there was no recourse but to cut it incrediably short. I had fish hook split ends, burned and breakage in other areas..it was a mess. I was told by the salon that I should of known my type of hair couldnt handle such intense styling and they offered a deep conditioning treatment..what ended up was me going to another salon and having them cut it so short its nearly into a pixie style. I barely have enough length to see the natural curl anymore. I know now its a matter of letting it simply grow out but are there products to use to keep it conditioned and soft while its growing out?. I dont buy anything online so I need ideas of things I can find locally. Really any advice would be welcomed right about now.
