when i use hair gel parts of my hair look straight...?its only a few strands of hair too its probably from hair color cause i’ve done it a few times over the last few years...but i was wondering if it’s because of damaged and if i’d be able to dye my hair again without the damage being too bad

    It's hard to say without seeing it.  It could be damage, it could be just dry hair, it could be something else. 

    Dying your hair is damaging, especially when you go lighter.  There are ways to mitigate the damage.  Have it done by a professional, use olaplex, try not to re-dye the same parts.

    If those parts get straight only when they have gel on them, it's probably something in the gel that your hair doesn't like. I would try a different gel.
