There's a story I have to tell lol, so here goes:
When I was in the 10th grade, my mom made me cut my hair off to my shoulder (it was down to my waist before). After all the frustration of my curls, I decided to straighten it. I did this for about a year, and after I decided to stop straightening, it was too late. My hair was very damaged. My ends and roots are still curly, but the hair in between is horrible, its barely a wave and is practically straight.
Now, I have been heat free for a year, and my hair is growing in this weird wavy straight pattern. Only the ends and roots are okay. Also, my hair is extremely dry.
So, after that long story, my question is how to get my curls back? I have naturally 3A type hair.
I've been doing research and watching youtube videos lately to learn.
I figured I could do a protein treatment one week and a moisturizing treatment another week, just to try and get my curls back. Do you guys think this will work?
*By the way what are good homemade protein treatments and some good homemade moisturizing treatments?*
Also, if this helps, I only wash my hair once a week, and I comb my hair out before I wash it, and then condition and shampoo it.
