Post Flat Ironing Tips?

Hey Everybody!

I just flat ironed my hair yesterday to get a trim and I'm a little nervous that the next time I wash it it won't revert back to my curly hair. Do you guys have any post flat iron tips that will help me transition back to my curls?

Thank you!!!

What do you mean you are scared it won't revert?

Do you mean you are scared you won't like how your hair will look once you wash it out?
My 2 cents but I'm no pro:

Just don't straighten too often. Only once in a blueee moon if you can. Use a silicone based cream to protect your hair before straightening. Remember to wash the silicone out with a gentle sulfate shampoo when you're ready to go back to curly. I personally wouldn't risk the damage. It took me a whole year to grow out to shoulder length after my curls were destroyed by too much flat ironing.

If you used a silicone, you'll need at least coco betaine to take it out. I hope you protected it properly beforehand.

If this is a once in a while thing, your curls will be fine, just don't do it too often or you'll get damage. I would deep condition and do an ACV final rinse to close the cuticles.
