If it was caused by too much heat try a protein treatment and then deep conditioning. Also, are you able to still wear wash n go's? I think cutting your hair should be the last resort.
here is my hair pre- treatment (a little dry but you can see i have lots of s curls and it super thick). I do not have any pics of what my hair looks like now. I have to work hard to get any type of curl in my hair, it will dry pretty straight to wavy.
I have not tried a protein treatment yet. Something like Aphogee? Or is there something better to use?

You should be doing it several times a week with a really harsh shampoo like Prell or Suave or VO5 with 1 tsp of salt per oz of shampoo.
Are you doing any heavy protein deep treatments?
Have you tried swimming? The chlorine is supposed to remove the keratin too.
What about steaming? Sometimes my curls get too loose from Henna steaming improves my curl pattern.
I am shampooing my hair every day to every other day. I am using a herbal essences clarifying shampoo and adding sea salt. I separate my hair in sections and work it in and add extra salt. I usually shampoo twice and then d/c after. Prell is my next step, I could not find it today at a store but I am going to leep looking.
I have not tried swimming..we have a pool, so I will take a dip tonight.
Also I dont know much about protein treatments or steaming..is there a thread that I can reference?
