I have natural hair and I have been totally natural for three years.  About a week ago, I went to a salon to get my hair flat ironed which I had not done in a long time.  She washed it and conditioned it.  She kind of yanked on my hair a lot which pissed me off.  I told her I untangle it with conditioner and lots of water.  Plus I had already untangled it and had it in loose twists (about 4), when I got there so there was no need to work that hard to untangle my hair. She said didn't untangle wet hair because she didn't want to create knots.

But whatever...

Point is, I just wet my hair because I felt like my hair was weaker while it's straight.  Well as soon as I wet it down I noticed my curls looked way looser  (I am a mostly 4b), but my curls are really really loose and some of my hair is BONE straight! It looks like I got a texturizer! Plus my hair smells.  My son and husband says it smells burnt, and I personally think it has a faint chemical smell.  Is it possible she relaxed or texturized  my hair!? All I wanted was a press and flat iron!  I am about to cry.  Seriously.   I feel like if I gently pull my hair I can hear pieces snapping off! I am shaking right now.  What do I do?  should I confront her and ask her if she put straightening chemicals in my hair? I worked really hard to get my hair to grow and be healthy and to have it ruined because of some lazy beautician really makes me mad!  I want to scream curse words right now! Angry

Sounds like heat damage hair.  When you have that burnt protein smell, most likely heat damage.  Sounds like she used those old school marcel irons to straighten your hair.  I went through the same thing when I went to this popular Egyptian/Iraqi salon.  But unlike you, they used a cheap ass relaxer instead of the Affirm like I asked.  I dealt with the worst breakage of my life.  You will need a reconstructor like Nexxus Emergencee or CHI Deep Brilliance Reconstruct.  Then balance it out with CHI Deep Brilliance Moisture treatment.  I would start off with the Nexxus first since it is easier and cheaper.  Hopefully more people will chime in.

Thank you for your reply.  I am so sad right now.  Before i went on this journey I had some really bad breakage in the front of my head and I've been really proud of the length and thickness of my bangs which go well under my chin and almost reach my chest.  Now I see little pieces broken off.

Cry

I deep conditioned it but I think I am going to do a re-constructor treatment this weekend.  It just feels really weak and thin.  Do you think my hair can be re-built?  Will it ever be the same?  Good lord I don't want to start over.  Three years is a long time.  Well, I am definitely done with salons.  if I ever straighten my hair again, I will do it myself and I don't care if it doesn't come out straight.  I've grown to love my hair and that took a really long time.  

Well thanks for your input.  By the way, I did call her and she swears she did not put any chemicals into my hair.  So I think she just burned it and yanked it.  I think she needs to get out of the hair business.  She treated my hair like she hated her job. Ouch

I hate to say this after the fact but we really need to stop trusting salons with our hair, especially if they are not natural hair salons. Her number one priority was to straighten your hair, not to preserve it's health or curl pattern.

I'd rather straighten my hair myself after watching vids on youtube than get it done at a salon. These people don't be knowin what they be doing.

I'm sorry this happened to you. IA with the above poster, most likely culprit is heat damage. 

Some intense deep conditioning and a good protein treatment should help but, depending on how bad the damage is, these treatments are not likely to completely reverse it.
