How do I obtain a curl pattern? If you want to obtain your natural curl pattern it is important to abstain from heated hairstyles. If you are flat ironing, hot curling or pressing your hair as often as every 2-3 times a month, it's very likely that your hair is considered to be "HEAT TRAINED". Heat trained hair has little to no curl pattern, you may see a loose wave but typically heat trained hair is not as curly.
***MAJOR TIP: In addition to abstaining from heat, you want to start deep conditioning once a week, implementing Apple Cider Vinegar hair rinses ONCE a month and most importantly leave your hair ALONE. Invest in protective styling, this will be the easiest way to obtain your curl pattern.
***Please refer to our blog to learn more about Apple Cider Vinegar rinses.
