There's no denying that curly hair is amazing!
So full of life and personality!
While some people have to wake up extra early to rock your natural born look...
...you have the pleasure of hitting the snooze button.
But even with all the awesomeness that comes with having a crown of curls and coils, there is one precaution for which curlies should be very aware: HEAT DAMAGE!
Heat damage can happen to any hair texture, but it is very evident in textures with definite curl patterns, explains Yessenia Reyes, a curl expert and hair stylist at Hair Rules Salon.
Some curlies say that heat damaged hair still has hope, however, thanks to apple cider vinegar rinses.
Take this story from natural hair blogger Hair Mary, whose friend tragically damaged her hair with heat.
Her friend suffered severe heat damage to her natural hair (left) after straightening her curls. She began doing apple cider vinegar rinses once a week with hopes of restoring her curl pattern, and she noticed that her curls had improved significantly after only two weeks (right).
