    It looks like you have pretty bad heat damage. Most likely it wont curl back up. The only option if you want your curls back is to cut it. You don't have to cut all of at one time but do trims every now and then.

    You'll probably have to get them cut but you could see how some deep conditioning treatments go first to moisturise the hair, probably followed by some protein treatments to get some curl back.
    This is my prayer. That I'll die living just as free as my hair.

    I don't know about store bought products but for a moisturising deep conditioner I use a honey and olive oil hair mask before washing my hair.

    It's really simple. Just 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. You can adjust these measurement to suit you. I sometimes add a bit of coconut oil. If you make too much you can just save the rest in a jar for when you next use it.

    Melt them in a bowl and apply to your hair. Where your hair is in need of most moisture apply more. Once done put your hair up in a towel. You can preheat the towel in a tumble dryer or use a hairdryer once your hair is wrapped in a towel. This isn't necessary but the heat usually improves the results.

    Leave the mask on your hair for 30 mins - 1 hour and then wash your hair as usual.


    I haven't done a protein treatment yet but this seems to be the most effective http://www.naturallycurly.com/curltalk/2/116257-pt-recipe-promised.html

    thanks so much as a young girl struggling with my curls u r really helping should I do the honey treatment once or twice a week?

    So far I've been doing it twice a week because my hair was so dry. It all depends on how damaged your hair is. Also, see how it works the first time you use it and how much of a difference it makes. It usually takes about 3 -4 treatments to notice a big difference but I could feel a difference after the first use even if it wasn't a big difference.

    Do you use silicone products?

    Here is an extract from Live Curly Live Free - Curl Care


    'Many conditioners and styling products on the market, both professional and drugstore brands, contain non-water soluble silicones, which lie on top of the hair, creating an impenetrable barrier into the hair shaft. They look like a quick fix for frizz since they temporarily smooth the hair shaft down and make frizz seem to disappear—but they also suck out the moisture from inside the hair, dehydrating curly locks and creating more frizz in the long run. Since they can't be rinsed away with water, they also build up on the hair shaft and generally require a surfactant (detergent)-based shampoo to remove. Yet another vicious cycle in the minefield of curly hair health.
    You absolutely, positively must use a conditioner that's either silicone-free or has acceptable, water-soluble silicones in it to condition your hair. Your hair will not form beautiful curls without frizz unless it is well-moisturized—no ifs, ands or buts―and the conditioning step of a good curly hair care maintenance routine is the most effective place to get adequate moisture into your curls.
    To effectively apply the conditioner to your hair: rake it liberally all through your hair with your fingers, scrunching it into the length, and let it sit for a few minutes so your hair can absorb what it needs. Rinse out any excess with cool water. Cool water, like acid-based products, will shut your cuticle down and help keep all that healthy product inside your hair shaft where it belongs.'



    This website has a ton of useful information for curlies and it would be incredibly beneficial to you if your read it.
    This is my prayer. That I'll die living just as free as my hair.
