My hair type changed & i would like to know how i could get it back
Ok so this all started in the 7th grade. i had thick, thiiiick curly hair (it was almost coils) & i never loved it. i would always put it up in ponytails or whatever the case would be. but anyways; that's just a backstory. here's where it gets crazy. i would always flatten it & i would get some flat ends but my hair was still really thick & curly. So in the 8th grade, i dyed my hair red (my curls were still perfectly fine & thick still) but then i decided i would cut my hair shoulder length. (from waist length.) i was satisfied but i truly noticed a difference in my curl pattern. my curls were more.. thin looking; but they were still coily just a bit more defined & what not. so. i was satisfied with it. then i dyed my hair black while it was still short. it was ok i didnt really noticed a difference & as my hair grew longer (it was about bra line length at the time) it still got more curly & stuff. but then i started flat ironing it. & from there thats when all hell broke loose. i started noticing a huge difference! and at the time i was so use to my hair being so curly, whatever i did to my hair really didnt matter because i would think "it would go back to normal, it's fine" but thats when it really hit me. but i still didnt care & i wanted to dye my hair red. from black to red. i did my research before anything & i wanted it red so bad i didnt pay attention to the cons about going from black to red. so i dyed it. mind you, my roots were already grown out & my black hair was about at the bottom of my hair so, how did it turn out? i had firey red hair on the top of my head & black hair at the bottom. i cried. i cried sooooo much hahah. but then i went to walmart and i bought color remover thinking my hair would go back to its natural color so i was happy, but still doubtful. & what do you know! i used it & it was basically bleach. i wanted to dye but i still managed to get my hair a burgundy yet red hair color. my ends weren't cut my hair was always knotted & whenever i brushed it i would hear the knots just ripping out; it was horrible. my curls; i didnt even know at that point. which leads us to today. i recently cut my hair again from bra line length to shoulder length again. i felt relieved & stuff. my hair is somewhat thick & my curls are somewhat there but it's really loose. & i hate it. plus, whenever i wash my hair, if i miss my curl product or if i dont scrunch it a certain way or whatever the case is, my curl pattern would be different. there's days where its wavy, and days where it's curly. but i have a problem. whenever i side part my hair, the curls on the flat side (the opposite side of where all my curls are when i part it) is so flat and loose. i want my curls tighter but getting gel and finger curling it would only make my curl weird & only a small curl will appear on the bottom. the rest would be straight. so if you made it this far down my story, thank you. i just want a thorough explanation and answer for my problem.(the pictures are 2 of my hair in the 7th grade, 1 when i cut it short for the first time, 2 when it was black, 1 before i cut my hair (the condition it was in after the bleaching, dyeing, ect) and one of my hair today.
you know it's really easy to take care of your hair you just need to be vey patient so first of course deep condition your hair once a week and try diffrent masks and treatments , like protein treatments a lot of people who dye there hair will need protein afterwards , and stay away from heat and coloring at least until your curls go back to normal , and don't worry your hair is gonna be healthy again just take care of it
