Don't Know What Else To Try.
I've been trying to atleast bring some of my natural curls back from the bleaching. I've done beer rinses, DC, Protein treatments, all kinds of things. The curls come back but but when it's my wash day they just look horrible.

My hair isn't long maybe 3-4 inches so if i have to cut some of it off that's fine I'm just hoping not alot of it.

Anything I can try before I have to ultimately cut it or should i get rid of maybe 1-2 inches and give it more tlc and see what happens? I have no idea what to do. i'm so use to having straight hair but I absolutely love my curls and I want them back.

Giving a little more info about your hair and what's happening with it may get you a little more feedback. What are your hair's properties (porosity, texture, elasticity, density)? Sounds like you're growing it out to transition from bleach damaged hair to natural?

I'm not sure I'm understanding your comment about how your curls look on wash day -- How long are you going between washes? I can pretty consistently get good-looking curls on 1st, 2nd, and even 3rd day hair, but if I go 5 days between washes, my curls aren't necessarily looking so great by the time I get to wash day.

I'm totally natural since aug 25th last year and I decided to bleach my hair about a month ago to go blonde from brown n it just made my cyrls straight.

I know to damage bleach does but I figured since I use to do it before it was ok. I don't really know my hair type.

Im just really learning all this natural stuff and I've been for a while now but I never knew it was such a change

I've never bleached my hair, but I have had some heat damage before. What corrected that for me was trimming the damaged part, deep conditioning, and no longer using a flat iron (Although there are curlies out there who periodically use them with a heat protector product and keep the iron on a lower setting). Over time my hair has returned to a healthy state.

It might help to enter a search on bleach damaged hair or to re-title your post asking for help with that specifically so people with more experience with that problem will pipe in.

I was thinking maybe putting kinky twists in my hair

Doing lots of protective hairstyling is definitely a good idea I think.
