My hair is extremely heat damaged. I used to have 3a hair but I kept straightening and dying it, I did the big chop a few days ago and I use hair masks and Argan oil and shea moisture products but my hair won't curl anymore. My roots are straight and the ends are wavy but almost straight. Am I stuck with straight hair? What can I do?

    try a protein treatment, keep using good products and have patience.
    i don't know how short your hair now is, but even 3c's need a certain amount of length to start curling, even tho the curl starts at the root.

    take photos each week so you can see progress.

    3a, some 2c & 3b, medium texture, porosity normal, low elasticity :-(
