BKT concerns

Hi guys! I had a BKT back in September. I'm done with straight hair and want my curls back so I've started washing with a sulfrate shampoo & conditioner. My hair now has very loose curls (I was a 3b) and I was wondering if my original curl pattern will come back or am I going to have the curls I have now forever? Anyone who has had a BKT that can shed some light on this, I'd appreciate it.

    Have you been flat ironing your hair all this time? Burgundy_locks had a 1-time BKT, and apparently after a couple of sulfate-shampoo washes her hair reverted to its original curl pattern. She only kept it that way for about a month, though, if I remember correctly, because she missed her curls.

    If you flat iron often, it can permanently change your curl pattern, so I guess only time will tell. I have been BKTing since November, but I have done it 4 times, and my 4a curls are almost completely gone. I applied the BKT one too many times in close succession, and now I have almost no curl at all, so I'm kind of in the same boat you are--I want back the 3a pattern I had before this last BKT application. I don't flat iron my hair except with the BKT application, though, but my hair does have heavy highlights, which I think has been the downfall of my overall hair health.
