#1: Protective Styling
Hello everyone. I've just started transitioning and my roots are growing out wavy/curly but the only problem is no one can see them yet. The rest of my hair has lots of heat damage and does not curl. Or at least it does when it is wet, but then it dries straight, only very puffy and frizzy and not presentable. I'm in my senior year of high school and can not go to school looking like this. Can anyone direct me to a list of examples of protective styling I can use to help in my transition? Or can you tell me what worked for you? It is really hard to not use heat on my already heat damaged hair but I am trying to keep away from my flat iron. I have had to use the flat iron unfortunately but i have recently started using a heat protectant, however, i still feel bad about using all this heat every week even with the heat protectant. I feel it can only go so far.
