#1: Frequent Flat Ironing Ruined My Curls
I went blonde about 1 1/2-2 years ago and my curls were still there and really pretty, even after bleaching. I even flat ironed my hair myself for a few months for about an hour each time. It was really damaged. It looked and felt like straw. But the curls came back. Anyway, for a while I was going to this horrible hair dresser. She straightened my hair with a blowdryer and GHD flat iron (mine is a GHD too but this one was extremely hot, maybe like 400 degrees). My cheeks turned red and felt hot, it was that hot. She didn't use heat protectant, just Moroccan oil. And she did this several times. Now my curls are ruined. They don't curl the same. It's just a mix of curls/waves/straight hair. And I hate it, it makes me so sad! I want my curls back but it will take forever to grow back! Is there a way to get my curls back now? I've also had a semi-permanent toner put on my hair a lot but that never ruined my curls so I don't think that's what did it.
