Heat Damaged Transitioning
Hey guys! I have been transitioning for about six months, (no perm just heat damage) and most of my hair, excluding the roots, hardly has a wave. Its straight and flat. My hair is a 3b/4a combo (4a is around my edges, 3b everywhere else) but my ends are more like a 2 a, and some parts are completely straight. To blend this in, I'm doing braid outs, occasionally bantu knots (I LOVE the way they look but they give me headaches ) and buns. However, due to heat damage, my hair won't hold a braid (& def not twist) and it becomes unraveled. I have been using rubber bands, but its starting to break my ends off (I knew before hand they were horrible for hair). Do you guys have any suggestions on how I can secure braids without them? I can't use gel, hairspray or anything like that, it dries my hair out.
