After straightening my hair for nearly 4 years straight (All through middle school, freshman and sophomore year more often than not) Junior year I decided to go natural all the time. If I straighten my hair, it'll be once every 3 or 4 months.

However, all that heat has left my hair horrible. It's lost some of it's curl. I'm "supposed" to be a 3b/3c, but now I'm more of a 3a/3b, flat and no volume.

I tried using a curling iron on SOME strands, and leaving the ends off the heat, to add some definition and curl to my hair.

For the past 2 months, I've stopped using shampoo, and I'm using an argan oil conditioner, and I sometimes use a mask for my hair

I don't use that much product, just when I get out of the shower, some Ouidad curling creme and some hair serum

I'm going off topic, I just want to know how bad the damage to my hair will be, if any, if I use the curling iron? I only use it for like 5-10 seconds, and I spray a heat protector on my hair
