The answer is YES. It is definitely possible to reverse heat damaged hair without having to cut off your damaged ends. I straighten my hair once a month and because I was once negligent with using heat protect, I have a small bit of damage. Since then, before I straighten my hair, I ALWAYS ensure that my hair is properly moisturized and heat protectant is used.
The key to getting those curls to bounce back is MOISTURE. While sporting straightened tresses, you always want to make sure it is properly moisturized to avoid breakage. I highly recommend black caster oil. Not only do I use it for hair growth, but it also does an excellent job of keeping both my scalp and ends moisturized.

While my wash day routine is still in the trial and error phase, if you would like your curls to come back I highly recommend these 2 products
These 2 products mixed together create absolute magic! I have been using these products over the course of 2 months and I have definitely noticed a difference in that one area. That section of hair is no longer as limp as it was before and my curls are slowly coming back.
