undefined curls after getting highlights

sherry7899sherry7899 Posts: 897Registered Users
I just got highlights for the first time on Wednesday.
I haven't shampooed my hair yet (I'm using Abba shampoo) My curls are really limp and undefined. Is this a result from the highlighting?

    Some curlies have either colored their hair or got highlights done and have experienced loss in curls for a while . i have highlights done ever so often and never had a loss in curl formation, actually it seems like my curls pop more , weird i know. usually if u go to a CO wash a few times it will come back if your on CG..me personally i stick with a color poo/condish for a bit to not fade my highlights . but i water down the poo a bit..later on ill go back to a CO wash.
    Modified CG-Use Low Poo
    Use Suaves & VO5 Condish For CG-Honey+ Condish=My curls are loving it!

    When I got salon highlights, they did straighten my curls somewhat. Not so much when I do my own at home, but I don't go as light as they did.

    Since when I had my highlights done they only lightened my hair and didn't put color in I did a henna'n'placenta hair mask and that brought my curls back. After that I just keep up on doing a DT every week or so! ~~jax
