The answer is no! With proper care and professional attention, you can keep your beautiful curl pattern and still enjoy a variety of styles.
If you have lost your natural curl pattern or sustained breakage, then the most likely cause for this type of damage is the direct result of heat applied incorrectly to your hair.
Here’s another question I frequently get: “What is my curl pattern? Well there are different curl patterns for different people and curl patterns can be different even on the same head. If you wear “natural” styles and you are not sure what your exact curl pattern is just schedule a consultation with me and I’ll help you determine your exact natural curl pattern.

So let’s get back to your curl pattern …there is one essential way to be sure your natural curl pattern is not lost … beware of excessive heat.
Your natural curl pattern is a wonderful thing! Why? Because your natural curl, shows how HEALTHY your hair is.
When excessive heat is used on the hair, then the natural moisture and oils that keep your hair and scalp healthy can be depleted.
Exactly how can too much heat affect your natural curl pattern?
- Breakage to the hair
- Pressure and tension on the hair
- Unhealthy curl elongation
- Loss of elasticity
You want to avoid all of the negatives and enjoy an occasional straight style, so what can you do? When applied by a professional, heat in moderation, can give you the healthy results you are looking for and yet will not eradicate your natural curl pattern.
The key to maintaining natural curls, full of moisture and shine is using the proper heat protectants during the blow dry process and pressing process to help insulate the hair from heat.
I have some great information for you about this, and when you visit me at the salon, you’ll be thrilled with the options to keep your curls healthy and happy. When you want the occasional straight style you can be confident that your hair will be treated carefully and safely. Plus I’ll give you more tips on keeping your natural hair beautiful and healthy like:
- Securing your hair with a silk scarf or bonnet
- Maintaining bounce with pin curls
- Using a silk or stain pillow case
- Trimming every 6 to 8 weeks.
I’m looking forward to seeing you and helping you keep your natural healthy curl pattern, whether you chose a curly or straight style.
