Help - Relocation and Hair Transformation

AdamDomingAdamDoming Registered Users Posts: 1 Curl Neophyte
Hi , happy to be a part of the community .
I would like to ask for some help regard my transformation in my curls.

I have (in my opinion) curls between 2c to 3a
I'm using NoPoo and One Condition for a very long time with good result.
I'm originally from Tel , sunny and very humid city most of the year.

I relocate to Milan (im still using the NoPoo and One Condition) a month ago and since that my hair transform completely and become almost completely straight with slight wave.

I would like your advice and recommendations for which products and routines can get me back to my old and very nice Curls.

Tnx a lot for the help

    I'm guessing that the weather in Milan is much drier than in Tel. There are a few things you can try.

    You could use a richer conditioner, one that has more oils near the top of the ingredients list.

    You could use a leave-in conditioner. Or you could try leaving a bit of the One Condition in your hair and not rinsing it all out.

    You could do a deep conditioning treatment once or twice a week. To do that, wash your hair as usual and then squeeze out the excess water. Work in your conditioner and then put a plastic cap over your head, and a towel over that (to hold in your body heat). Let it sit for maybe 20 minutes, then rinse out and style as usual.

    You could try adding a styling product, like a curl cream or a gel, over the top of the leave-in. Some people like lighter-hold products (not as crunchy) in drier weather because they feel like hard-hold gels dry their hair out. Adding a styling product might help your hair retain its moisture. (Your curls are most likely dropping because your hair is losing much of its moisture to the environment.)

    It could also be the water. If you moved from a place with soft water to a place with hard water, it will affect your hair.
