Hi all! I'm new to all of this. I've been flat ironing my hair since I was 13 when I had 2b hair (I think) and am now 19 and stuck in the middle of 2a/2b. I think all of the flat ironing has ruined a lot of my curl although the wave is still definitely there. I only think i'm a 2b as I have thin hair but lots of it and am very prone to frizz and fuzz after washing.
My hair is in relatively good condition since I had it all chopped off a couple of months ago (from half way down my waist to my shoulders). I'm looking to try and get my hair back to what it was before i ruined it with all the flat ironing, can anyone recommend any products or techniques? The photos with brown hair are with my hair just washed with lloreal elvive total care shampoo & conditioner, I'm one of those people who have tried every drug store shampoo/conditioner and am never happy! There's also a photo of how my hair used to look prior to flat ironing (sandy blonde)
I am STILL trying to recover from damage. I heard that thermal damage is irreversible, but the best I can reccomend is lots of deep conditioning & cutting flat ironing & blow drying OUT of your regime.
