yeah, I think your curls will come back soon. After a few washing with Giovanni tea tree shampoo, my BKT, especially at the roots, has completely washed out. the rest of the hair shaft is still a much looser and bigger curl, but the frizz at the roots when I wore my hair curly ( which is the reason I got the bkt-to be able to wear my hair curly), was too much. I went ahead and did an at home treatment for my roots and temple area last'll see how this goes! This is my BKT take 3....i keep ruining it because I'm hair obsessed
