Growing out heat damage!

LeleyLeley Posts: 41Registered Users
Okay sorry for the long post...
After years of using straighteners I've lost my curl pattern.
I put put some moose in my hair the right side is going wavy but the left has tons of straight parts like 6 maybe 7inchs.
You see the problem is I'm getting married next year and I want my hair to be long for the wedding.
Do I battle on growing my hair and hoping it reverts after months or do I just chop the damage off.
Any advice would be wonderful
Thanks friends :)

    if I were you, I'd chop it off. It's best to have short, healthy hair than long, damaged hair.

    You can always get temporary extensions for your wedding. I had them put in for my Graduation Ball and they looked amazing. And I just went to the hairdresser a couple of weeks later and got them out :) simple

    I agree with Brit. Length is nice, but it won't look nearly as pretty as healthy and short hair if it's fried.

    You could also invest in some clip-ons, I highly recommend clip-ons because they can be reused over and over and are so easy to style and you can just take them out after by yourself when you're done!

    @aspen I used to live in my clip-ons back in the straight-haired days! Agree they're a very good solution :D
