Default Transitioning from ALWAYS straightened hair

Hi all,

I am a teenager who wants to wear my hair natural. I have been straightening my hair non stop for about 3 years. The center and back of my hair is still curly. The top and front of my hair is almost all straight as a result of straightening so much. What are the steps I need to take to get my hair back to its natural curl? (any shampoo or conditioners?)

Honestly there is no special shampoo or conditioner that will revert your curls back after the pattern has been changed due to heat damage. I too am currently going through heat damage where I have straight pieces in the front. I cut more than half of those pieces because they weren't not reverting and I couldn't deal with the two textures. I will keep cutting them off as my hair grows longer. As for the curlier/wavy pieces you should look into the curly girl method where you maintain your hair with products that do not contain silicones, sulfates, or parabens in order to bring out your curls fullest pattern potential.
