How to get your curls back after straightening curly hair

Straightening curly hair

Straightening curly hair is forbidden by the "Curly Girl" Method but I'm not strict CG. Sometimes I straighten my hair and this is how I keep my curls looking good afterwards.

I love to change up my look and I think hair should be fun. It's ok to try a different style as long as you protect your hair and don't flat iron it until it burns. You can straighten and keep your curls!

Bond treatment:


Olaplex 3

I’ve seen some reviews on the Shea products saying the ingredients have changed and are now poor quality - would you still recommend it?

Lauren Day

I love your hair colour! Love all your tips and it's so enjoyable watching your videos.

I blow dry and straighten my hair during the cold weather here in Iowa. I'm waiting for it to get warm enough so I can go back to wearing my hair curly, and letting it air dry.

Unicorn Elly

So I have curly hair naturally and I only get to have it down for like 30 mins before it goes puffy.. and then I have to tie it up :(


Can I ask for the Shae moisture you used the orange container, how much do you apply and to what parts of your hair? Im a guy a very similar hair style to yours and am curious cause yours looks really beautiful.


I straitened my hair way too much and now my bangs are straight


Plex treatments are fantastic. ???

Aghh as a tot I had corkscrew curls. the tightest little things. then at around 12-13 I had curls like yours! Super cute and I LOVED IT. butttt I started bleaching and using bright neon dyes (the brand pulp riot at the salon) and now my hair is like half and half. I recently cut it short to help but it didnt do much. well- the top layer is the same, frizzy and super straight and fried but the under side like when I flip my hair over, its super cute curls! Ive always wanted to just start over and chop it in a pixie cut but i couldnt pull it off and my mom wont let me. Im so lost on what to do!!! (Edit: ive colored it for the past year but havent in a while. im 14 and currently growing out a faded ginger/ strawberry color I got in august??‍♀️ love this color but my hair is so dead no matter what. )


I love having a nice blow out with curls at the bottom that I make with my round brush. I’m at the point I almost never use my actual flat iron. I like to rock a blow out when I go on a trip because it keeps me from having to wash and style my hair so much. I just started using Olaplex number 3 and 6 and I’m interested to see how that will change my hair as well

You totally read my mind. I was just wondering this because I got my hair blow dried at the salon today! Thanks!

Unicorn Lover

Hi I don’t know if u remember but my name is Anna and u did my hair at the Samsung thing.
Later when I did shopping I had 3 people come up to me and say how much they loved my hair.


Yay! A new video! :-) Welcome back and this is very timely as I've been straightening most of the winter and ready to break out the curls again! :-)

shere Thompson

My mom is straightening my hair today and I have natural brown curls

Veronica Mieres

glad you're back!

Stencibelle Cookie Stencils

Hey! Love this video! You mentioned some silicone free heat protectants? I can’t see these in the description would love to know what you recommend!? Thanks! ❤️

Kelsey AussieMomCreations

What a view from your office! ???

Cheryll Ross

Great tips thank you. I've missed your videos and I'm very happy to see you back!


I have curly hair, but I straightened and bleached it for years. On my journey to rediscovering my curls I bought a silk scarf in an attempt to tame the frizz, however I discovered wrapping the scarf around flattened wet hair overnight essentially straightens it! (For me at least). And no damage!

socks lady

This is so helpful. I've always wanted to do the curly girl method, but i also didn't want to give up on my favorite heat styling tools. Life is too short. Thank you so much for helping me have both!

Josie F

Thank you so much Cristina for sharing this valuable information with us for that we are immensely grateful. ????????⚘?????????????

Cassey Steph

I was just thinking about how much I needed this video omg?? I do full CGM and I haven’t straightened it around 2yrs, so I’m kind of scared about doing it for prom lmao Thank you so much

Maisoon Ebrahim

I get a full blow dry once a week and in wash I started using olaplex 3 with deep conditioner and my curls recover, before I used to just wash and my curls will get so rough and dry and won’t curl back.


I get straight hair by putting it up in a bun all week ???. I'll have half curly half straight hahaha (this is of course because I'm not refreshing in between. If I did it would be fine).
Have you tried the no-heat straightening methods before, like stretch plates or wrapping methods?


I straightened my natural curly hair for almost a year straight ? will my hair still have my natural curls?

Janet's Planet

Nice to see you again


Ok I just keep wondering how you make a blowdry last a week? When I get one, it lasts two days max with clipping my hair up. ✌?


When i was young i had a really very curly hair but my mom used to cut my here so often and it turned to wavey how can i get my curly hair back ?:-(


I love my curly hair, but it's a bit too curly.  Is there a technique to calm my tresses to a looser curl?

Girl I Love your hair. I mean really it's GORGEOUS? I'm not even close to your length. I've done rice water the Biotin vitamins faithfully. I've had zero success with growing my natural hair. It has gotten worse actually. I have a ball spot that has gotten bigger. I'm really desperate here. Do you have any suggestions?

The last two times I flat ironed my hair the styles didn't last a day. I didn't flat iron it really straight so that is part of the problem. I just bought a maxiglide and will see how it works on my hair.


Beautiful hair! UGLY attitude!!!

Execellent Video, I had my natural hair silk pressed for the first time once, after 5 years of natural. Silk press was beautiful but after a week i wanted my natural 4c hair back and was worried I’d lost it....Nah.....found this video and my beautiful 4c is back no heat damage...phew. Although the silk press was great, I missed my 4c and don’t think I’ll be doing another silk press for another 5 years.

Hi! I watched this tutorial yesterday and tried it today on my hair and girl...this technique did WONDERS for my hair!

I watched your video yesterday and headed to my local beauty supply store. For the past couple of months I have worn protective styles that required me to straighten my hair. I wanted to go back to wear my natural curly hair but did not know how to get my curl pattern to come back. Thank you for posting this video. It was easy to follow and I have great results. Thank you for showing me how to get my curls back.

Donnie Love

Just used this technique last weekend and it was amazing. The first time I washed after straightening and had little to no shedding. Thanks

Lavern Pitcher

was your hair always curly

Shannon G

Soooo...for the first time I accidentally wet my natural hair while straightened. I completely wet my hair while wearing a shower cap. The water went inside of my shower cap and onto my hair. My hair was only straight for three days. I did my hair for my birthday (on Tuesday), and was going to get braids in two weeks time. Just wanted to warn ladies or men not to trust shower caps fully just get in out of the shower that's it. Not everything is fool proof. Idek, what I'm going to say when I get to work tomorrow lol...so embarrassing. I'm going to play it cool and say I only keep it straight for my birthday. ??
