Can I Repair Heat Damaged Natural Hair?

Saturday, January 26, 2013

Sarah asks-

“So I decided I needed a trim on my natural hair and thought it would be an opportunity to get my hair straightened. I went to a salon.

The stylist used a pressing comb and a curling iron and got my hair straight, but now I wash my hair and in some areas it will not revert back to its kink.

It is bone straight in some places an it’s evident that I have heat damage. I’m so upset. The first time I get my hair straightened since being natural and now my hair is damaged.

Is there anything I can do to revitalize the curl? Anything? Or am I gonna have to cut my hair again?” -

My Answer

Hey hon,

I hear the frustration in your email and I feel your pain- I really do. I’m really sorry that this happened to you.

As you probably already know- the damage is done and the only way to remedy damaged hair back to 100% no heat damage is by cutting off the damaged ends BUT you can do some damage control.

I would say if your intention is to retain length (regardless of the fact that the hair may remain permanently straight) then don’t cut your hair and do some serious damage control.
