Default Damage by straightener?

I'm a reformed straightener and trying to grow out my curls. I have bits at the front though that seem permanently straight.
I know it's not just a looser curl pattern as about an inch from the roots starts to curl.
Is it possible that repetitive straightening, especially at those easy to reach front bits has left some strands straight?

Yes, that can happen. You may have to cut some of the damage off. I had to cut 2" off mine due to my darn flat iron if you're anything like I was, my front pieces got the worst of it. I would condition the heck out of that area to see if it helps any.

Thanks, I'm torn between just cutting the straight bit off but if I cut those top bits off, some of the bottom will have to go too 😬

I'm in a similar position! I straightened almost daily for so long and even when I went curly, I'd still use heat to style and fix the bad curls. I have been natural since September now and seriously the front area of my hair that got the brunt of the damage doesn't curl like the rest. It's really hard to get it to do anything. It's where I had bangs that I grew out and that were heat damaged all the time.

I'm just trying to let it grow and pin it back.
