Default "Reviving" curls

I have finally found a product combo that gives me 3 - 4 days without having to "redo" my wash and go. at night I clip my hair down with duck bill clips and sleep with a bonnet. As the week progress although my hair is soft, mositurized, and shiny some of the curls especially in the front get flattened. How do you revive your flattened curls? I have been using some aloe fix and qhemet burdock root cream for moisture and the halo frizz but it doesn't help to much with my flat curls. any suggestions?

I put my hair up in a pineapple when I go to bed and I don't have any problems with my curls flattening. I do have problems with my curl pattern dissipating in the front since that area is wavy and not curly. So I do about 3-4 little twists in that area and take them down in the morning.

From what you said, I'm just wondering if its the duck bill clips that are causing these issues if you are putting them in that part of your hair. Since I don't use them I don't exactly know how you are using them. Also, what do you mean by flattening? Because to me if you are sleeping with your hair down and simply in a bonnet all of your hair would be flattened. Which is why I don't sleep in a bonnet. Maybe I'm just confused.

Usually scrunching in Devacurl Set it free mixed with Burdock Cream will plump them up. If they have lost curl or are so frizzy as to be unbearable (and the rest of my head is okay). I use a drop of Afro Detangler, smoothing down the strands and hair curls back up.

Was wondering the same thing! Is your hair long enough to put in one or two (or three) puffs? Or to do loose dry twists with?

I use KC's Spiral Spritz and Jane Carter's Twist and Lock Cream to revive daily and its the best thing i've tried.

So I recently cut my hair and its not growing as "fast" as it should and I seem to have lost my curls. Do you have any suggestions how to get my normal curls back ?
