Heads up! Come check out our new forums, CurlTalk.
So I have never straightened my hair before, Will my hair go back to normal if I straighten it?
I straighten myhair about once or twice a year and it always goes back to normal when i wash it. It goes curly after you wash it but will take a couple days to get its full curl back.
I have heard that even strightening once can mess up the curl pattern but i have never realy had a problem with it. As long as you dont do it too much or have it too hot and use a heat protectant it wont hurt your hair too much and the curl will come back.
If you mean with just heat, like a flat iron, then yes, it will go back to normal after it gets wet, as long as you don't fry it. Just be sure use a heat protectant & use the lowest setting on the tool that straightens your hair. You can also try straighten with large plastic curlers & using a cap hair dryer/diffuser or let it air dry. Using curlers & letting hair air dry, although time consuming, is less damaging than a flat iron.If you mean a chemical straightener, then no, your texture will be different. Some people experience a dramatic difference, some only a very subtle one. It all depends on your type of hair & the chemical used.
