Mind you I only rock textured hair and wigs. kinky curl, kinky straight, Italian Yaki those type of textures.

I found this site when my hair was damaged and hanging by a thread also. So I know how OP feels. Its never too late to learn.Hug Just slowly step away from the chemicals and the flat iron for the next 10 years. Your hair will grow much faster without it.


Most people find BHM when their hair is in need of desperate attention. I know I did as well. Hopefully the OP can find some helpful tips within the thread and overlook the childish comments.

Ridiculous people are mad about your own hair.

You should transition it using small perm rods to match your texture. Try braid outs, buns, etc. You can try blunt bangs and bun the rest of you hair since it is already straight. There are many styling options. Just stop relaxing and work with what you have. You probably notice way more than anyone else will.

My comment wasn't in negative intent and make her feel insignificant, it was to give her advice. I don't think there is anything wrong with constructive criticism. If you don't want to hear what you did wrong, then you won't get the most out of your advice.

Despite the "damage being done" she needed to know that the irreversible extent that she took wasn't necessary in the first place, and what she could have done alternatively. Even if it won't change the situation, as least she learned from her mistake and knows what to do next time she feels like she can't wear her hair.

Still sorry vjordan82 if the way i worded that post it was offensive or too blunt. Hopefully you were able to take something helpful out of my advice.

Andreyball:

The best thing you can do is start over from scratch with your leave out. If you decide to wear weave choose one that is close to you natural curl pattern, and when not in a weave try not to straighten and cut the perm as it grows out. If you decide to wear natural hair style, just with pin the front back. It will grow back before you know it

Start something new, wear the relaxed part in a braid or flat twist while wearing your natural hair out.  Wear your hair in protective styles that may help the relaxed part blend in better or roll your hair on perm rods to achieve an all over curly look.
 
No matter what you do be prepared to be patient with the relaxed hair until you have enough new growth to cut.  Have you considered using a kinky weave on the relaxed area?

I get being passionate about your hair but sometimes you guys go WAY overboard....



Op, you can try to transition that leave out. Trim off the ends slowly. Make sure to be really gentle with that area! Do bantu knots out to give it texture to match your hair. Also try to wear a side part or an off center part.
