I killed my curls... Bleaching and straightening turned my hair to straw. After years of damage, I was fed up, and was willing to do anything to fix heat damaged curly hair. In 21 days I was able to turn my dead, lifeless curls and revive them to give them new life! This is my healthy curly hair journey with pictures to show the transformation!
This is episode 2 of my curly hair journey series, so make sure you get on the playlist here to see the entire journey! uzvid.com/video/video-xshnIjx12eU.html&list=PL-YJIxus1Fz4OeavTq4atRoRvkcFqZ-J0
*This video is not sponsored. I paid for all products in this video myself*
My typical curly hair routine involves washing with DevaCurl's No Poo, DevaCurl's One Condition, and styling with DevaCurl's Styling Cream. For my full Curly Hair Routine, you can see the video here: uzvid.com/video/video-_8ZFjZQoPis.html
I messed up. Every day I abused my hair to the point that it was like straw. But after years of experimenting, I feel like I am close to having my curly hair looking how I want and want to share my experiments with you that I'm doing every week. I'm sharing my curly hair journey, curly hair routines, tutorials, and product reviews every Thursday and Saturday.

My experience- i went to salon and wanted a crimson red hair color. Stylist bleached my entire head and when I left I had that beautiful red , straight beautiful silky hair i wanted. Long story short - i kept going back letting her bleach me out and color then blow dry my hair out straight (took about 45 min ) did this over and over .all along hot ironing my hair every single morning for about two years or more. Started noticing my hair feeling dry and gummy in the shower.couldnt get my fingers through it in shower. It was (and a year after ) a mess.my hair started comming out in handfuls in the shower. I literally woukd role it up and set it in corner of tub so it wouldnt go down my drain.. Finally started watching the curly gurl method videos and decided to stop bleaching it abd hot ironing it. Its been since last December and my hair is recovering but still in poor shape..I cut 3 inches off and it still is dry and damaged. Now no heat (at all) all silicone free, paraben free, sulfate free products...thank you for your videos - they motivate me to keep going and embrace my natural curly hair. My advice to anyone thinking of bleach and heat styling- DONT DO IT- ITS A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE AFTER THE FIRST IMPRESSION OF FALSE BEAUTY TURNS TO DESTROYED CURLY HAIR. Butttt- my eyebrows-😐😐 im sorry i get them waxed 😂annd they are pretty thin..😌some things i just cant quit😀

I bleached my hair back in 2017 to dye it red ( a horrible decision). And I also straightened my hair almost every day and used little to no heat protectant because I thought my curls were ugly. Now most of my hair curls, but there are some sections in the back that refuse to curl.

I totally agree with you on the princess diaries part. I also started to straighten my hair really young because everyone I knew had straight hair and all the curly celebrities that I knew always wore their hair straight. So naturally I felt like I looked prettier with straighter hair too and kept straightening my hair

Has this worked for anyone else?? ... ive been trying to transition for nearly a year and i only see a tiny difference. Does this really work within 21 days... i have high doubts it doesnt. I use cantu shampoo and conditioner, but tend on buying shea moisture when i have finishrd using them as i hear nothing but good results from those producuts. I have 2b/c hair but used to have 3b hair that looked big and full. I have coarse thin hair, but doesnt look like i dont have any hair. I had been straightening my hair for 8 years...

I got bullied for having curly hair (i am white) and got called a sheep. So I combed and washed them everyday. Never used heat damage tho. Also no conditioner and I bleached my hair two times. At age 16 I embraced my curly hair but the damage was done and I was still using the wrong shampoo and not enough conditioner. I cut my hair and let it grow out and changed my diet and routine. Now at 22 I found out about protein treatment and do co wash only to bring back the moisture in my hair and the curls.

Not to knock anyone else but I've personally never been super influenced by movies or tv shows. I've watched the princess diaries a million times and I have never been under the impression that my curls weren't beautiful. Idk I've just never been one to follow everyone else, I guess I just know how to separate myself from all that nonsense.

Omg I cannot thank you enough for this amazing video. Most youtubers said the transitioning phase can take up to three years, and i was not ready to wear my ugly damaged hair for that long but now I’m so inspired by you to give it a try. You look amazing by the way and your natural hair suits you very well.

Wow, there are so many comments on The Princess Diaries and what a bad effect it had on girls! I felt like the moral of the transition in that movie was self care and maintenance helps us to be our beautiful selves, that we already have everything we need, but we should spend time on ourselves instead of leaving the house haphazardly or without taking pride in our appearance. I guess that was just my own take on the makeover scene. I love the curly hair! I will also say the pics of you when your hair was "bad", I didn't think they were very bad, and we all have those transition periods. Live and learn and try to be our best selves! Btw, when I was little my mom thought it was a good idea for me to have a mullet, and a couple years after that I got a "bowl" cut---people who didn't know me thought I was a boy....at the age of 10. So i'm pretty sure everyone has some kind of bad hair story.

I have such a similar story to yours. I was in school one time and a kid told me my hair was too big (I had a puffy afro) and seeing as I’m mixed race my hair was big but had a lot of movement. I straightened and dyed the crap out of my hair and regret to this day even if my hair has improved! It’s crazy how standards can people can influence the way you feel and look 😞

Ah, so /that's/ how the hair is "trained" to become straight if people do it enough. I wanted stick-straight hair as a teen, but could never get it because I didn't have the proper tools for a long time. My mom knows nothing about beauty so she was no help! I did eventually get a flat iron, one of those Conair ones with the chamber where you add water :P Then, in my senior year of high school, I stopped because I got too busy to do my hair and stopped caring.

Really encouraging I also had beautiful curly hair about 5 years ago..because of the negative comments from my family and friends,I went for permanent straitening and heating ..literally I was torturing my hairs for last 5 years..as a result I have developed bald spots on my scalp and gone through severe hairloss..I came across this video and I went and cut short all my damaged hair last month and stopped using blow driers and straighters. I am trying hard to get my old curly and wavy hair back.I believe, one day I will accomplish it. Thanks for inspiring me and millions out there❤

About 2 weeks ago i went to get my hair straightened at a salon i havent been to one in years because i dont trust them at all. My hair got damaged. It was really upsetting because my hair curly hair dry almost reaches my strap. I cut it down to above my shoulders. Fyi never cut your own hair i screwed it pretty bad lol. So now I'm starting over with my hair :( i realize my hair is just not meant for heat anymore.

Since then I’ve been trimming my hair every 4 weeks( just the tips) and staying FAR AWAY from straightening. My hair has got SOME curls back but it looks really frizzy and dry...Going to try silicone free products now.

For "those days" I must have bone straight hair I wear a lace front wig...I'm not gonna ruin my hair with straightening any more,I'm done with that.anyways I like curly hair and way more beautiful than straight hair in my opinion..stupid Hollywood and Victoria's secret not to mention vogue and cosmopolitan and sports illustrated swimsuit magazines telling us what looks good is bs. If we really cared what society thinks is attractive or is a pretty look we would all be doing plastic surgery and fake ...oh wait umm..yeah..

From the bottom of my heart thank you so much for making this video! After not using heat for over a year decided to go to a salon to get it straightened for a trim and ended up with quite a lot of heat damage (on my ends AND roots). Almost chopped most of my length off in frustration because I didn’t even think it could possibly be silicone buildup. Only on day 7 of following your tips but my curls have already reverted about 80% of the way. Again, thank you so much Amanda. You’re a lifesaver! 😭💕💕💕

Okay, this is a cry for help! I have been natural for about 3 years and all throughout I have been real careful and have only straightened my hair at home about 5 times, ever. But last month my dumbass broke the cardinal rule and I went to this "professional" who straightened and trimmed my hair. A little bit of background, my hair is 4b-4c and usually will not even last a day straight until becoming puffy because that shit sucks in moisture like a thirsty sinner in church. This is why I was really happy yet suspicious when 3 weeks into my hair being straight, it was still not puffy so two days ago I washed it and wouldn't you know it, I have heat damage. Bruh when I tell you that I was depressed, I was depressed. What makes me sooooo angry is that I didn't do the damage myself, I wouldn't be mad if I did but no, I spent three years of my life to grow and avoid heat, only for a "professional" to ruin my hair. I contacted the lady immediately and she goes "if you feel like your hair has really changed, come back for a couple of treatments." I'm like bitch, can you not see the straight strands in the pictures? Long story short, I'm praying (no joke) that this method works, because​ after this, NO ONE, and I mean NO ONE is ever touching my hair. I just want my hair back. If you have any extra tips, please, please, I need it.

Hello girl thanks for this motivational video. I often see transitions like years apart making me think that it would really take a lot of time before I see any developments on my project Back to Curly Hair. But when I saw your video saying 21 days I was like boom motivated and excited with my own journey. I totally agree with you on all points. And btw, I also lose my breath easily ever since I have my first child. Like seriously need to take a deep breath every 50 words I spit on a convo. Keep it up girl! Keep beginners, like me, motivated.. 😊

I cut my waist length curly hair just yesterday because of all the damage I had done. It looked way too pretty but only I knew it was damaged and I had to let them go. I have shoulder length now and they are pretty much damage free caused by hair straighteners. Besides I live in Canada, so the weather can take a toll on the hair too. Now that I’m in India for a while, hair is much better and sticking to my sulphate and silicone free method with conditioner washing most of the times. Hair is short now but well better to have healthy short hair than long damaged curls. I’ve always got compliments for my hair. Something I swear by is: 1. Hot organic coconut oil scalp massage every time you wash your hair. 2. Hair masks rich in protein. 3. Organic hair products that are sulphate, paraben and silicone free. 4. And treat hair with love. Be gentle and love your hair. Treat it as gently as a new born. 5. Biotin and omega 3 fatty acids for those that have brittle hair. Good luck with your hair journey.

Victoria Lerner- I would suggest talking to your doctor about this if you can. I’ve heard some horror stories from using supplements (but also good things, to be fully honest). But I think a good diet to suit your needs would be safest and that way the majority of the nutrients you’re trying to absorb doesn’t end up in urine. Just my two cents ☺️
