Hm, there could be hormonal changes influencing your curl pattern.
Deva products have proteins in them, so my first guess isn't that you're overconditioned.
I'm very curious though: what kind of damage do you think you have? You mention chemical: do you color your hair? When you mention heat damage from the stove/other kitchen appliance, do you spend a lot of time in the kitchen? I've never really considered heat damage from anything other than hair appliances, but I imagine it could be possible...

Waiting to try extra-wide curlformers. Propylene Glycol Sensitive - Itchy scalp? Facial Irritation? This might be why!
