I feel sort of embarrassed to say this especially here... :blush: but I DO straighten out my hair ev'ry now and then...BUT I wear my hair Au' Naturale about 80% of the time. Just a few days ago after haveing my hair straighten(with a flaming hot tool of hair torture) I washed my hair and after being drenched I found a good portion of my ends were STRAIGHT!! I'm soo dissappointed :doh

Has this happend to any of ya'll? do you think my napps will come back with more moisture?

I'm sorry that happened to you. You may have to cut the ends off. Maybe you could deep condition your hair.

Wow, you are the second person who has posted something about heat straightening in the past couple of days. Before Nappturality, I never knew that heat couple permanently straighten one's nappy hair. So sorry for your loss (especially since I know how long it took me to grow my naps). Good luck :)

I am sorry to hear about this experience. I, too, before joining NP didn't know about the dangers of heat styling. You may want to read Dee's (NP founder) article (http://www.nappturality.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=24408) on heat styling. Be grateful that not all your napps were ruined in the experience, there have been past members that have ruined their whole head!

well i'm not sorry for ya. you already knew better.

to answer your question, no this ain't happened to me. it never will cuz NOW i know better.

if u don't like the straight ends, cut it off and stop burning the hair straight . duh!

<_<

seriously, how many people does this have to happen to?



seems from your first sentences you already knew the deal. and i&#39;m willing to bet you already know the answers to your questions. no, if the naps are damaged, no moisture, no product, is going to bring them back.

High heat straightening tools are the enemies of nappy hair.

Nothing will bring burned, heat damaged hair back from the dead. Nothing. Your ends are toast.

Once you damage your hair like that you will have to cut if off. You can use a protein conditioner to try and stop the brittle hair from breaking off on its own right away but you are better off just cutting it.

20% or 80% doesn&#39;t matter. It only takes ONE time to ruin your hair. Remember that.

i too didnt know :dunno: the dangers of heat styling until one day i went to the salon to get a trim. so they blowed dried my hair so they can get a good trim. i guess on some sections she might have used to much heat that a few not very noticable strands of hair were straight i thought it was going to bounce back but it didnt. so i cut those strands off. i now dont believe in blow drying or straightning your hair. i love the way my hair :afro: is but all i was doing was trying to get a trim.

Omorena, I&#39;m sure a lot of other new nappies will be thankful for your post. Your embarrassment will be someone elses gain. I&#39;ve only been nappy since Oct &#39;04 and I was fortunate enough to have read Dee&#39;s pinned post on heat styling. If it wasn&#39;t for that, I probably would have been in your shoes, thinking that temporarily straightening could give me some variety with hair styles and such. You&#39;ve done your penance by posting on here. Now commit yourself to NO HEAT. There are so many beautiful styles out there that to not require heat to achieve.

You have been a member long (Jan 04) enough to have known that you were literally playing with fire. The best thing to do is to cut those ends off because your can not unburn, unfry, unwhatever hair. Good luck.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

But seriously, It does seem like you knew what could happen before you did it. Im not judging your choice of hairstyle, thats not my place. Whether you wear YOUR hair straight or nappy is up to you, you made the choice to use extreme heat on your hair so you must live with that decision. If its damaged and the texture doesnt return after a good deep condition and a few washes then cutting of the damaged areas is you only option..


PS. People!!!! Please read the stickies, they are there for a reason :afro:

Ain&#39;t that the truth.

Any heating device that can reach up to 300 degrees can and will do damage.

The next time you wash your hair use Infusium 23 leave in conditioner treatment. I prefer the original one. It should get your hair back in shape.

Ditto... You can probably give it a few washes to see if your napps will spring back (I&#39;ve seen where some people have said they noticed a difference after mutiple washes). If that doesn&#39;t help, the best thing to do would be to cut the damaged ends off. Sorry to hear this happened to you, but we live and learn. Good luck!

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this is craaaaaazy. Why oh, oh why, oh why? Why do we do it yall? What is the problem? Heat equals what? Burn. What happens when you put heat under a pot of water, or a pan of grease. It cooks right?! Gee whizzz. When are we gonna learn? What is the point of making a statement of how proud you are of your natural hair and then you want to burn it all up? I guess this is the time when you can really ask yourself. "am I really proud of my naps"? If you have any doubt whats-so-eva, you need to rethink growing it out naturally because the undecisiveness will take you to all kind of measures with burning your hair being at the top of the list. Natural means just that. No heat, not process, no chemicals. Basically sticking with as much natural resources as you can. Ugggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh!

I think that heat-damaged hair is missing two things: 1) water and 2) the ability to retain water. To help it attract water try using humectants like honey and glycerine. Use these when it&#39;s really humid outside. Also do some conditioning treatments. Conditioners have oil in them. The oil will coat the outer layer of your hair, which will help your hair retain water. When you&#39;re in the sun, try putting a UV sunblock for hair on your hair or get a clear conditioner to put on. That should stop the sun from soaking up water from you and may prevent some UV damage. The simplest way is to take a pair of scissors and chop it off. You should consider doing these things whether your hair is heat damaged or not.

None of these are permanent answers to damage. If you start thinking that your hair is dead in the first place, maybe you won&#39;t risk it. Good luck. And it&#39;s hair, you&#39;ll grow more.

I guess it was only a "flaming hot tool of hair torture" when it finally burned your hair, huh?

I&#39;d like to say I&#39;m sympathetic, but I&#39;m not. It seems that folks are not only ignoring Dee&#39;s warning up there not-so-subtly titled "On Heat and Straightening," but they&#39;re obviously ignoring post after post from people who have made the mistake and from those who have reminded them that yes ...

HEAT DAMAGES YOUR HAIR!

People will heed the call for buying this product and that product, but no one seems to pay attention to this simple warning about using heat.

It&#39;s not that I couldn&#39;t care less what anyone does with her hair -- though the fact is that I really couldn&#39;t care less (the only hair I worry about is my own; you all are grown and can do what you want) -- but I am amazed that posts like this keep popping up. We should get one of those tickers to count down when the next "surprised" victim of heat damage shows up.

Getting off my soapbox now ...

so sorry to hear that...I completely understand wanting some versatility. I don&#39;t wanna wear my hair/dress/drive to work the same way all the time either.

That being said, we have been warned (on multiple occasions) about the dangers of using heat. It&#39;s up to each individual to decide if they want to risk it. I&#39;m not knocking anyone who decides to do it, but you may have to cut your losses/ends and chalk it up to a learning experience.

Good luck

Just a point of information: it is not necessary to straighten hair in order to trim it correctly. A skilled natural stylist can trim your hair properly without straightening it.

You don&#39;t need to straighten hair to get a change of style or versatility. If you look through all of the hair albums here, you&#39;ll see more styles than you can do in a lifetime and these styles don&#39;t involve straightening hair.

No sympathy here. :icon_headshake:

You will need to cut off the straightened hair if you want a nappy look.

try trimming in twists. once you have denatured the proteins in your hair with the heat--they have lost their natural structure and shape forever. thnk about it this way--can you unfry an egg??. eggs are full of protein, once u fry it there is no going back. some people&#39;s hair migh bounce back if the proteins are not completely denatured --but usually you have to just cut it off and re-grow it. i agree with the advice to get a weave if you want it straight--your hair will thank you.

No sympathy here either. Your post indicates you already knew heat = damage but insisted on heat 20% of the time for.... more styling options? Well I too hope you love you hair a little better now


As for these word filters let me try some:
curling iron (c.u.r.l.i.n.g i.r.o.n)

relaxer (r.e.l.a.x.e.r)

errm I have been in the nappy world too long, i only seem to remember what is good for the hair since thats all am interested in practicing.

ETA I guess the filters didnt work for me

I cut off all 9 inches and started over.

the funny thing is that while i was reading this thread a commercial for a combo flat flaming hot tool of hair torture/curling iron came on TV claiming that using it nourishes your hair. :lol: how ridicuous! so now burning the crap out of your hair is nourishing

I agree with the other people. i won&#39;t bash you since the damage is done. if it doesn&#39;t bounce back after a couple of washes then just cut it and start over.

Stickies aren&#39;t read in general. If you&#39;ve been to more than just this forum you&#39;ll notice that right away. New people will ask questions on things that were already answered in stickies at the top of the forums. Even veterans/regulars don&#39;t read the stickies sometimes.

Damn sistah girl was just asking a quesiton dont be embarassed girl
you asking a question that you felt like asking I dont know why
some of the chicas on here are biting your head off <_< like you
commited a sin for straightening out your hair im reading the "no
pity" comments and im thinking why do they have no pity
i mean im sure 98 percent of the women and girsl on here have
"lived the ly" and used flat irons and so on so why are they sooo
righteous all ofa sudden. And as for heat always being damaging im
sure it can cause damage but if you check some of the lovely ladies albums
on here alot of them have straight hair dos and ther ehair seems to bounce
back quite lovely in toa afro (so maybe you just had bad luck) or used
excessive heat. I am transitoning but when i was fully natural (yes
its my second time around) I use to flat flaming hot tool of hair torture my hair by myself at home
and never had a problem with it i guess it depends on your hair and
styling utensil. I suggest cut them bad b oy ends off and keep it moving.

Not trying to offer an excuse, more like a reason.

I honestly thought my hair was strong enough to withstand it. It didn&#39;t. I didn&#39;t moan or cry, just cut it off and got on with. If you know the risk and take it anyway, there&#39;s no point in moaning. :2cents:

We&#39;re here to help, so now that you see the effects that heat have on hair so it&#39;s up to you to make your decision. The ball&#39;s in your court.

What Feeps is saying is that she&#39;s never felt the urge to do that sorta sorta to her hair again. It&#39;s a dunce move. You really can&#39;t come on NP say that stuff and not expect to be put on blast, hun. Of course we&#39;re sorry for her ( I can&#39;t say it&#39;s happen to me. I love my hair too much to be experimenting). But it&#39;s just another case of "If you can&#39;t hear, you must feel" and that&#39;s a shame.

No i&#39;ve not been chemical free and heat free all me life. BUT I KNOW BETTER NOW AND SO DID YOU.

Roseburnt, i DO NOT feel sorry for the OP because she had been warned but did it anyway. she just didn&#39;t think it would happen to her and it did. oh well. it will grow back. ion have to feel sorry for ya. that&#39;s not my job. even if it was my job i wouldn&#39;t be sincere about it.

I mean it&#39;s not like you didn&#39;t know the risk you were taking when u decided to p.re.ss it. you knew about the risks of heat on your napps and did it anyways. why should i feel sorry for YOUR hair?? i answered the OP&#39;s question. no that has never happened to me. if it did, i&#39;d chop it off. no biggie to me. i like how a twa looks on me. i&#39;ve cut healthy napps down to almost bald with no love lost. i&#39;ve never been one for holding on to damaged hair. me and scissors have a close relationship.

she JUST BC&#39;d from what i read so those few inches will grow back in no time if she chooses to chop &#39;em off.

plus, i didn&#39;t start a thread about "lawd jeefus i burnt my napps by burning the hair straight, i&#39;m so ashamed, has this happened to anyone?" i mean u think u the ONLY nappy head that&#39;s done this? come on now. u expect me to believe u really started the thread to find out if someone else burnt their napps with a fry rake? i, personally, think that alot of folks start threads such as these so folks can come in with rubbin&#39; head smileys saying they sorry for you pain/loss and whatnot. but that&#39;s just MY theory. i could be wrong. but just in case that&#39;s what you were doing, *I* don&#39;t feel sorry for ya.

i&#39;m not mad at ya either. but i can&#39;t fake sympathy for someone who knew better. :dunno:

HAPPENED TO ME! HAPPEND TO ME! HAPPENED TO ME!
I got it done at a shop and it never went back, i ended up having to cut the ends off, about a good 4 inches... and i waited a good 4 months before i cut them off (i wore my hair braided in the 4 months). THEN my brilliant self wanted it straight again (about a year later) :doh :doh ! HAPPENED AGAIN. now i dont get that done any more. was way more harm then good.
