I am just realizing the beauty of my curl but I have hair damage at the ends of my hair on one side

I am finally realizing the beauty of my curls but I have damaged alot of my hair by straightening my hair through the years. My hair is really long when straight and I do have more curl then damage so I do not want to do the BIG CHOP, but I am considering doing some kind of cut next year when my new growth gets longer.Since my hair is mostly damaged and straight on one side of my head, what deep conditioning treatments could I use, homemade or store bought, to help my straight ends get any better or even get a curl back. Any suggestions???I have 3b/3c hair and do braid-outs in order to create a tamed curl. I can not do wash and go's because my hair is straight on the right side on the ends. Please Help

I would just use any kind of deep conditioner that's natural and free of a bunch of drying chemicals. If your hair is permanently damaged you probably will have to cut off the damaged ends eventually.
The easiest solution would be to trim off the bottom and to avoid heat. If you really don't want to cut it, you can always try something like Curlformers on a few strands. It's a great solution to heat free curls.
