If you have been straightening your bangs with heat, you may be able to repair some of the damage by replacing lost protein and moisture. A protein treatment is a good step to try. Some people start here by putting conditioner on their hair twice a day, and using a deep conditioning treatment once a week to replenish lost moisture. I spray a mix of conditioner (50%), water (50%), and Neutral Protein Filler (20 drops-available at Sally's Beauty Supply) late in the day, giving it time to be absorbed into my hair and dry before I go to bed, and use my regular leave in in the morning. This regimen may restore your bangs, if the damage is repairable. Any unrepairable damage will have to grow out. You can set unresponsive bangs on small rollers or large straws that come close to your natural curl to get them to blend with those that are curling better.
Some hair doesn't respond well to protein-it can make hair that doesn't want/need protein seem even dryer and cause some breakage. If that happens, you need to use more conditioning.

and reading the curly hair basics section will help you determine your hair properties (or you can do what I did and get a hair analysis from them). This will help you to pinpoint which ingredients/products you should look for for your hair.
Experimenting with too many products to name here. All this great info keeps my head spinning.
