If you have lost your curls and are looking for ways to restore your curls, this post is for you.
If you have curly hair, you must have tried changing your natural curl pattern. Whether you did it through straightening or chemical treatments, these procedures can be very harsh for your curly hair and often damage the hair strand.
Check out four simple recommendations to restore your curls so you can keep your curls healthy.
#1. Don’t Over Shampoo
Make sure you shampoo your hair once every 7-10 days. Shampooing more frequently will remove the natural oils from your scalp, which will make your hair drier.
#2. Add Extra Moisture and A lot of Protein
Curly hair is dry, which is why they always need moisture. And when you want to restore your curls that have been dried and damaged, added moisture always helps. Use natural oils, conditioners and leave-in conditioners and moisturize your hair from the inside.
And your hair doesn’t just need moisture. Since hair is made up of protein, adding protein to your routine can also help restore your curls. Make sure you add a lot of protein to your diet and don’t forget to add it topically as hair masks and protein treatments.
#3. Say Good-Bye to Heat Treatments
Heat can extensively damage your hair structure, so as you intend to restore your curls, say goodbye to heat treatments such as blow drying or straightening.
#4. Comb With Leave-in Conditioner
Over combing your hair can cause friction and result in hair breakage. Moreover, it also prevents your hair from growing. So make sure you only comb your hair with a leave-in conditioner, so there is minimal breakage and damage to your hair.
Try out these 4 recommendations and restore your curls so you can enjoy a healthy bounce.
