Please don't try to tell that girl to cut off her hair just because she's got some heat damage. If you ain't ever had heat damage you should just sit down. There are varying degrees of damage. Take it from someone who has had severe heat damage after a year of the flat iron, a series of protein treatments followed by intense deep conditioning can bring your curls back if you don't have broken bonds. Try treatments first, then after 1-3 months of good maintenance, snip any straight hair remaining. Saved 4-5 inches of my 6 inch long natural hair. Better that than losing the entire thing. I swear some of these natural nazis act like they can use damage as a punishment for daring to straighten.

Maybe I don't get out of the NC/4a boards enough cuz these people in the other group are out of their minds.

And who's this "other group"? (inquiring and drama thirsty minds want to know)
