Going from having to have curly hair to getting a blowout, silk press, or straightening them every once in a while feels like an exhilarating experience; it feels like you are unlocking a whole personality, but I’m sure that you are also aware that it is a gamble on your curls for a shaky return. But the good news is that you can get your curls back once you step into your shower. But it takes more than your regular shower to get your curls back post-straightening, so read on to discover how to recover your precious curls.

Did You Straighten Your Curls? Here’s How To Get Them Back

1. Pre-Show Mask

We highly recommend that you use a deep conditioning pre-shower mask to add back moisture to your curls before you hop into the shower because a pre-shower mask gets your hair ready for the cleansing effect of your clarifying shampoo. We recommend you try Curlvana’s Deep-Nourish Hair Mask, created specifically for dry, damaged, and dull curly hair. This mask has a buttery formulation that intensely moisturises your hair and transforms it into smooth and bouncy curls that are frizz-free for up to 3 days!

2. Clarifying Shampoo

First off, straightening involves heat, which breaks the bonds in your hair at a molecular level, making them dry and damaged. Second, it is important to use heat protectants to straighten your hair, and usually these heat protectants contain silicone, which can create severe buildup on your curls. Thus, we recommend that you use a clarifying shampoo like Curlvana Fortifying Curl Cleanse Shampoo to remove grime, sebum, and buildup without stripping the strands of their natural moisture, and follow it up with Curlvana Curl Shine Gentle Conditioner to add back that moisture in your hair.

When you are restoring your hair after straightening, you must use hair care products that are specifically designed for styling curly hair and hair styling products that are specifically made for your curl type. Hence, we suggest you try Curlvana’s Ultimate Curl Kit to reach all your curly hair goals.


4. Scrunch Your Curls When Wet

Once you step out of the shower and your hair is moderately wet, go in with Curlvana’s Curl Styling Leave-in Cream and scrunch your curls in. Follow it up with Curlvana Curl-Defining Styling Gel to set your curls in place before you move on to drying them. It is extremely important to scrunch all the products into your curls because water and leave-in cream tend to weigh down your curls. By scrunching them, you let your hair strands absorb all the products so that they provide optimal results.
