After I use a hair mask my hair is smooth, shiny, and super moisturized but I lose my curls/waves. Why is that?

    Hello and welcome!  Which hair mask are you using? And what's your hair type

    Well, they all have shea butter in them. Could be your hair doesn't like it. It might be that these masks are too heavy for your hair.

    Looking at this again, two of those masks have protein, and one of them has a cleansing clay. It is also possible that your hair is reacting badly to these ingredients. My hair goes straight with protein, and if I used a mask with clay, I would definitely follow it with an oil treatment.

    Yeah that's very important to know what hair mask would be nice for your hair type .

    Yes, you'll just have to keep experimenting. @bomega noted some things to check out: whether shea butter is an issue, whether protein is an issue, or whether the masks are too heavy for your hair.

    My hair loves protein/moisture mixes like curl junkie repair me. If i use only moisture, i go limp but my hair doesnt like just protein. Worth a shot!!
