How long after quitting heat-styling will I see a change in hair structure?

I have 3A hair with 2B curls that were caused by years of flat-ironing. I'm finally ditching the heat, but I'm wondering when my hair structure will start looking more uniform. I've yet to see any results and I'm becoming very discouraged. Also, any tips on bringing my curls back to life would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, everyone!

You can try protein treatments and deep conditioners, but years of heat damage usually seems to leads to irreversible damage. In which case, you'd have transition or big chop to get your 3a back.
