Beer rinse for heat damage?!

I used to have beautiful curly hair, now it's just straight! I've been doing deep conditions every week, but would a beer rinse help my hair's heat damage? I really don't want to do the big chop What should I do?! Also, I don't know how to flat twist, but what are some good styles for heat damaged hair to give the illusion of curly hair?
Heat damaged hair usually needs both moisture and protein. I've never tried beer rinses but they are supposed to be very conditioning, as well as containing some protein. My favorite protein treatments are with homemade gelatin gel. I haven't tried styles per se, but some people use curlformers or flex rods. If you search heatless curls on youtube there are many tutorials on there as well.

I found that it did smell a bit even when my hair was dried, i still thought i smelt like and oil beer stain on the carpet haha though my fav is still a herbal acv rinse. have you tired hot oil treaments? doing them once a week helps as well with the damage.

my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

Still, give the products + beer rinse a whirl and see if they help, if you are still having issues though you can get a cut but you don't need to get a whole bunch of length cut off if you don't want to. You can start with a few inches and just go back to get the damaged hair cut off every couple of months (mini chops) so it could be a gradual transition instead of one big chop (hopefully for this you have a good hairdresser that listens to you and doesn't cut off more hair than you ask). There are many heatless methods to blend hair on Youtube that are easy to follow... regular two-strand twists, flexi-rods, Curlformers, and much more.
