No more curly hair :(

I was curious if anyone else has had the same problem. I have had 4 keratin treatments done on my hair, 3 Coppolla's and one QOD. The last one was a week ago and before that December. My problem is that most of my curly hair is gone and now I'm left with this wavy, frizzy, somewhat pooch hair if I let it air dry (haven't let it air dry since my latest treatment but I'm sure it'll still be the same). I thought these keratin treatments are supposed to keep your curl but with no frizz but instead my curls are going the way of the dodo bird, extinct!

    I did one Coppola and it did not work for me. However, after MUCH research on here I found that I didn't need keratin. It is for damaged hair which mine is not. Sadly that is not how it was 'sold' to me. Have you spent a lot of time on here yet? If not then do it :) It will blow you away at the info you will learn!

    i too went through alot before coming here with the end being me relaxing my hair and then straightening afterwards and now dont have my natural curls but more of wavinesss and cant air dry..what i do is go through my whole routine but instead of airdrying i plop for at least 3-4 hours thn air dry or just plop overnight since it helps keep the frizz undercontrol however if you have long or short hair that may vary as for bringing your curls back i would say protein treatments and if it doesnt work youll need to cut the damaged hair off but instead of doing that i just cut alitte at a time
    Lo-poo:organix Shea butter shampoo
    Co-wash: suave coconut
    Rinse out:GFTN/GVP conditioning balm
    Leave in: GF daily care spray leave in
    Serum-like product: still need one
    Gel:LA looks sport gel/ HESMU,GFPC
    Oils: olive, coconut

    I think I'm normal-overly porous, medium-thick hair(although I see fine hair too), love protein

    Every brand has a different formula and you have to find a brand that works with YOUR hair. Damaged vs healthy hair has nothing to do with it. Coppolla didn't work for me either, but the effects of these treatments are cumulative, so yes, you can straighten your hair the more you do it. My advice? Stop doing it until your curls return, then try again using a milder treatment.

    To Whom This May Concern,
    A few months ago i went to the salon to get a blow out and the beautician suggested Keratin to ease my frizz and to calm my curls down so its easier to do my hair. I went for it and now regret ever making a horrible decision! She promised my natural hair would come back to life in 6 months but its been almost a year and i tried everything. Please help me. Now my hair texture is wavy and the ends are completly straight i have medium hair length and need my curls back. Help me!!!!

    It will be a year in October since I had my last treatment. I still don't have my real curls back (though I can "scrunch" and still get some....sigh....
