3B hair getting straighter

2002esc2002esc Posts: 1Registered Users
My 14 year old daughter has 3b curl. This past year she has started to straighten it (blow dryer/straighten iron). I've noticed her hair has gotten alot of split ends, had them cut off but I'm really worried as the last hair dresser used a brazilian blow out shampoo and conditioner and I see that her hair is loosing some of the curl only in certain areas. Has anyone experienced this? Do anyone know how to get her curls back? Help!!

    I have experienced this before when I used to straighten my hair frequently. Have you tried to change shampoos? I would also try to cut back on the heat. Heat can damage the hair and cause the looser curls. A weekly deep conditioning treatment with protein should help for damage. I like restorative masks, you can buy or make an at home treatment. I have seen great success with prepoo treatments also. Hope this helped. :-)

    Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
    S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
    My hair officially hates protein ;) Once a month is enough!
    Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay! :D
    BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!

    I'll suspect it's heat damage that's causing her curl pattern to be straighter in some patches.
