I have straight strands of hair, I need advice them back curly
Yesterday I just got "the big chop" thinking my straight strands will go away. My hair was so long and I did it for no reason because my stylist said those strands of heat damage are far up to my scalp. These straight strands are only a small section on my right side of hair and every where else my curls are perfect. This problem has been going on for a year and I made the heat damage worse just by curling the strands with heat to blend in. I don't want that to be the resolution anymore. I need a way without heat to make those curls come back or a routine to help revive the natural curl patten on these strands. I can't cut my hair any shorter also it's at my shoulder and I use to have it to the middle of my back. I need desperate help.
I'd leave it alone for a few months... don't curl the strands, just leave them be. Do weekly deep treatments to try to restore your hair's health. Jojoba oil is a great conditioning treatment. See if the straight bits start to curl and see what the new growth of the straight parts does.
Just keep on transitioning and then chop those ends off, don't touch the heat for another 2-3 months and your hair should grow quicker so you can chop the rest of the straight ends off!
