I'm transitioning out of colour which has change my curl pattern. Anyone here transitioning from colour or heat damage, and not a relaxer/texturizer? I just want to see if anyone is in the same boat at me.

I am transitioning from straightening. I do have a tiny bit of relaxer on the ends, but my hair is long and I didn't want to to take off too much when I got a trim. Its been about 4 years since my last relaxer. So, now it is mostly flat iron damage.

i'm 5.5 months post hair dye. I'm also trying to NOT use heat. My dyed parts are frizzy 4b, when my roots have a defined curl pattern. I didn't even know there was difference with my virgin roots and ends until I started the CG method and my hair began reaching it's curl potential. I feel love playing with my roots 'cause it feels so soft and moisturized. My dyed hair doesn't feel "bad" cause I take care of my hair, but I feel the difference in my hair. I don't know if diffuser causes damage hair 'cause in the winter, I might be using that.
I'm transitioning from several non-relaxer related incidents:

2 BKT appliciations and frequent flatironing weakened and thinned my ends and removed some of my curl pattern. My bangs were almost completely straight and I have tried cutting over the months to remove the straight parts. I've been doing that for a year+.

Using protein gel and exposure to the elements is what really did some damage too. My roots along my hairline dried out until they are crispy with no curls. Ecostyler is loaded with protein to make your hair hard and stay in place, and I believe that it combined with the poor water quality, using shampoo, and weather to break some kind of bonds in my hair. I actually had nightmares a crazy Soldier put relaxer in my hair products it was so dramatic of a change. I figured if my hair was so damaged i was suspecting a relaxer I needed to transition again, at least for my edges and ends.

My last relaxer was April 2008, BC was May 2009, and last BKT was May 2010. I am still cutting off ends that were treated by BKT, with about 4 inches left. I also quit gel in May 2012 and am "low shampoo" now and I am already seeing results, I expect to be done transitioning maybe next spring. I just hope I can get it right before I deploy again.
No shampoo, no hair pins, no heat, no puffs... Just buns.

Almost MBL
I am transitioning from heat damage and I need help. How do I transition back to my natural curly hair?
I started to transition from heat damage last year, but then I thought what is the point of holding on to these straight ends and wasting product when I'm only going to chop them. So I chopped after 3 months. Anyway it's been smooth sailing ever since.
