Styling damaged hair?

Hi guys, my hair is very damaged from heat styling/coloring. I really want it to be healthy again but it's extremely difficult because when I style without heat, It just turns out very frizzy, poofy, and unpresentable. I was wondering if anyone had any tips or any experience going through this? Or did you just have to wear it up all the time?

Thank you for any help
Trim the worst of the damage off, rich enough products, careful choice of ingredients, way more leave in conditioner than you think you need, regular deep treatments, a little patience!! Good ingredients for damaged or porous hair include coconut oil, hydrolysed protein, ceramides and panthenol.

Be careful with up dos, they can also be damaging especially to hair that is already weakened. If you use them be sure they are loose not tight, use super gentle tools and ties like satin, don't wear the same style regularly.

Do be aware that hair is dead so you cannot repair it or make it healthy again .All you can do is reduce the porosity, patch repair the surface (temporary) and protect from further damage.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG. Past bra strap length heading for waist.

CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen
Treatments: Komaza Care Matani, coconut/ sweet almond/ fractionated coconut oils, Hairveda Sitrinillah
Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss Ultimate Volume, various Elvive
Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Au Naturale styling gelee
Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
Experimenting with: benign neglect
I, personally, would have all the damage cut off and start fresh, however I've never had hair so damaged that more than 3 inches needed removal.

I agree to cut off the worst of the damage. If your hair loves protein, do those weekly and always, always, always DT after. I love the Shea Moisture products. They are all natural and the DT masque is really heavy and rich, which is what I like.

Limit your use of heat. Heat isn't always bad if used in moderation. I use my dryer for PTs and DTs so they can penetrate the hair. But it's on the lowest setting, always a few inches from my hair, and constantly moving.

As your hair grows, keep cutting off the damage. It will never grow to its full potential if you leave it. As time goes, your hair will get healthier and become much more manageable. Right nos, it just needs a lot of patience, understanding, and TLC from you!
