Hey curly-haired girls! This week Lumka shows you how to restore your natural curl pattern.

Hair damage caused by chemicals or heat can really mess up your curls. Also, how do you go back to curly after straightening or blowing out your hair?

Never fear, there are some ways to get your bounce back:

Take a long, long break from heat

You can tell when your curls have heat damage. The once lively curls are dry, brittle, and loose. If you have to turn up the heat, use Afri True Heat Protection Serum (R29,95, Clicks) to protect your hair before applying heat.
