I'm thinking your right about me having heat & styling damage as I like to go straight about once a month, or do a blowdry with a round brush and let it naturally curl on it's own...but for the most part....it's a wash & go.
I recently had a little "accident" when I burned some of my hair from a tea lite candle.
That incident and the info that u guys have given me has prompted me to go no poo to try to gain my curls back naturally and in a more pocket friendly way.
So I've been alternating the lemon and cucumber poo & the avocado/honey hair mask with an AVC rinse, while also using aloe vera & EVOO as a gel.
Last but not least.....I've been staying away from the hair dryer and flat iron.
I must say the results are incredible....my hair is so soft and the middle of my hair isn't half as frizzy as it used to be.....also noticing that my ends are curling back up a bit...but not drastically.
Thing is a part of the reason why I went natural was because I loved the versatility of being able to go from curly to straight to "Miss Tina Turner What's Love Gotta Do Wit It" if I wanted to lol.
So does this mean in order for my hair to "behave".....I have to let that go????
Thanks guys for the replies!!!!!!!
I think the next time I wash I'll upload pics so u guys can see the difference.
Happy New Year to you all
