My hair caught on fire and I put it out instantly. Is it damaged?

This may sound really stupid but I was about to smoke a bowl and I have really long hair that parts in the middle on the sides if that makes sense. Anyways, a lock of hair was really close ti me lighter and it caught fire. as soon as I saw a hug blue flame puff up in the corner of my eye and hear the sizzling, I dropped my lighter and smothered my hands on the fire and none of my hair burned off. I feel like the natural oils in my hair may have caught on fire only though since my hair is still brown and none of it burned off because I literally put it out half a second after my hair ignited. I'd say it was about 2-3 inches that caught on fire. Definitely a scary moment but yeah no trolling, it really happened and I really hope my hair isn't fked up. thanks to those who answer

Try putting conditioner on it. You may have to cut off the burned part, though.

You will be fine after your next trim. I saw my friends very hairsprayed hair catch fire once. Very funny. So long as it's out quickly. You'll be fine.
