Curly hair is the BEST lol ..but anywho.Yea maybe you should just throw out your straighteners or let someone else borrow them..Bcuz you will be a lot happier once your hair does get longer and youll have the best curls! I had heat damage to where my hair looked crinkly instead of curly. and I knew that I would never stop straightening my hair bcuz i didnt feel pretty enough.. So i just cut it all off .and it forced me to become comfortable with myself with hardly any hair and without straightening it! So its something to think about!
