The road to recovery from heat damage can be long, stressful, and annoying. If you’ve ever transitioned from processed to natural, know that heat damage carries a similar, timely journey to healthy hair. Heat damage can occur for a variety of reasons. Excessive blow drying can weaken the curl pattern over time. Frequent or even one-time use of a flat iron or curling iron can also alter the state of your curls. The moment you’ve noticed a difference in texture and the inability to go back to your natural curl pattern, consider the damage done. The easiest way to get your hair back to normal is by doing a big chop. If that’s something you’re not prepared to do, a protective style can assist in nursing your hair back to health. In the interim, there are key products that will help bring life back into your curls. If you’re struggling to rediscover your natural curl pattern, here are 12 treatments that will make the process easier.
