HELP- My Hair is Mad at Me!

My friends convinced me to buy a flat iron to give myself a new look once in a while. So, I did. I used it a couple of time in one week. Now, after washing my hair and leaving conditioner on for several hours... my curls wont come back!!! HELP!!! What do I do?

My curls exist from root to about four inches then the end inches, about three, are straight. My hair is mad at me.

How do I get my curls back??????

    I recommend to first do a protein treatment, and follow it up with a deep treatment. A protein treatment will re-strengthen your curls, penetrate into your hair's cortex and repair it. A deep treatment will re-moisturize your hair and make it healthy.

    I agree. Baby the heck out of it. You only used the iron a few times so the curls should come back.

    Yep...this happened to me. My ringlets, my beautiful amazing ringlets are GONE. My hair is wavy at best, stringy and super super soft from all the conditioning I've been doing to try to repair it. Doing a protein treatment today.

    Good luck! I hope we both get our curls back! In the meantime, I am swearing off the curling iron, flat iron, and in most cases even the hair dryer.
