Well… I’ve never heard of this… 😬 Maybe the good ol braid trick would work… Have a bunch of tight braids in your hair overnight and take them out in the morning. Then you should have some nice waves going on to give it some body…

onceuponadream:  I have no advice but am commenting to see what others say. My hair has always been too smooth and silky which isn’t a problem at all because I am lucky to have such nice hair, but it is annoying as it never holds any style, slips out when tied up, so my hair style always looks the same!

keratin can be used to control frizz or permanetly straighten hair, it just depends on the type and technique used.  If you want to maintain you natural texture it is best to always go to a pro. Your new growth may not look curly because the weight of you hair is stretching it.  Try to refrain from heat styling and cut off all the keratin treated hair when your new growth is the length you want it.  Your curls should return.

I don’t know anything about naturally curly hair or what might have happened to yours except that if I want mine to curl I have to ‘dirty it up’ first.  It involves product mousse, power or spray to make it have some grip.

My hair is naturally that way!  What works for me is a texturizer spray that adds volume.  I spray some on my dry hair and then go over it with my flat iron.  It just gives it a little oomf so it isn’t too flat.

 I’m definitely not a hair expert and I’m not sure how to bring your beautiful curls back, but what hair products do you currently use? My hair is poker straight with a fair amount of body and movement but some shampoos, conditioners and styling products that claim “added moisture”, have keratin in them, or are “smoothing” or ” defrizzing” tend to make my hair flat and almost oily even when freshly washed. Probably not a solution to the missing curls but something to keep in mind. 

Also, have you started any new medications or diets? Those can change hair texture as well. Not as drastic as you’re describing but maybe in conjunction with other factors such as hair products? 


Good luck!

That’s exactly how my hair is, plus it’s baby fine. I’ve given up styling it after trying what seems like hundreds of products (although I do like Not Your Mother’s sea salt spray) so I mostly just blowdry it and wear it down without product in it- they usually make it greasy and weighed down.

Hair texture can also change throughout your life. I used to have pretty straight hair, and now I have naturally beachy waves – 2B/2C.

As for getting it to hold a curl, texturizing sprays are a good option – they kind of “dirty up” the hair – Bumble & Bumble and Oribe have pretty good ones, but they are pricey. There’s a Garnier Texture Tease one I use that is alright. You can also set your curls – I do this on my friend’s hair when I curl it (her’s won’t hold a curl) and it always stays the whole night.
