Natural Hair Shrinkage is CRAZY! What to know before heat straightening.

Natural hair shrinkage is crazy! Most naturals loathe when their hair shrinks because the hair appears way too short. On days when humidity is higher than normal or the day after #washday is when natural hair shrinkage is at its worst. 

Shrinkage actually means that your hair is healthy. The fact that your hair is able to go back to its natural state after being pulled or straightened constitutes healthy hair. 

Before heat straightening your natural curls here are a few things you need to know. 


1. Deep Condition the Hair
Before your hair undergoes any chemical processing or activity in which the structure of the hair changes, always deep condition the hair. Deep conditioning the hair will act as barrier in keeping the hair moisturized, flexible and strong to undergo stress. Whether you are coloring the hair or heat styling, always give your hair a great deep condition first. Banana Nut & Avocado Deep Treatment nourishes and strengthens the hair for healthier, stronger and shiner hair. It smells like Banana Nut Muffins and will leave you begging for me. 

2. Use a slippery and moisture packed Leave-in Conditioner
Natural Hair can be prone to dryness and is one of the reasons why naturals must use a leave-in conditioner. Leave-in conditioners that provide a lot of slip and moisture are great for detangling and lightly coating the hair. A great leave-in conditioner like Thirsty Kurls Leave-in Conditioner, will seal in moisture while adding protection for the strands to be manipulated. 

3. Never Let Heat Touch Your Hair Without a Heat Protectant
Heat Straightening natural hair without a heat protectant is a No No. Why? Because heat can permanently change the structure of protein and hair is made of lots and lots of protein. Once the protein bonds in the hair have been destroyed by heat, the hair will no longer curl or shrink into its natural shape. Ensure that your hair is properly coated with a heat protectant before adding heat.

Kurlee Textures Guide to Perfect Wavy, Curly, Kinky Curly and Kinky Coily Hair!


Use Kurlee Belle Kurlee Textures Guide To Find the right products for your hair texture. 

A Message From Our CEO Terrinique

Terrinique Pennerman
Kurlee Belle CEO
As a little girl, my mom always stressed the importance of looking your best. She was a quite a fashionista in her own right with hair, nails and outfit always flawless. We would spend hours in the beauty salon being pampered and when we weren’t getting our hair professionally done we were creating our own homemade recipes. Recipes passed down from generations of Bahamian women, made from naturally grown ingredients like Aloe Vera, Coconut, Hibiscus and Banana. When I lost my mom at 19, I wanted to honor her legacy by helping others look and feel their best. Kurlee Belle is inspired by hair care recipes from the Islands of the Bahamas to help women look and feel naturally beautiful. With every bottle or jar we are sharing hair secrets passed down from countless moms to daughters. I can still hear my mom saying, a women should always look her best and I hope that Kurlee Belle does just that for you.

Wavy Hair

Wavy hair is prone to frizziness, has limited volume and resistant to styling. Stay away from heavy products that weigh the hair down.  

Guide:  Opt for a moisturizing sulfate-free shampoo like Almond & Shea Butter Moisturizing Shampoo that gently cleanses the hair without stripping of it’s natural oils. To add moisture to your hair and reduce frizz, use Thirsty Kurls Leave-in Conditioner that tames frizz and leaves the hair looking and feeling healthy. To revitalize your tresses for added shine, bounce and strength, use Banana Nut & Avocado Deep Treatment as a weekly deep treatment. 

Curly Hair

Curly hair
has a well defined curl pattern of S shaped or spiral-like curls. This hair type has a lot of body, elasticity and excellent style versatility. It is easy to swell, dry out and frizz. 

Guide:  Start with our sulfate-free Almond & Shea Butter Moisturizing Shampoo to cleanse, moisturize and detangle the hair. To strengthen and nourish your curls, apply Banana Nut & Avocado Deep Treatment. Thirsty Kurls Leave-in Conditioner will prevent frizz, while making hair easy to detangle and give curl definition. For Wash N’ Go days, use Jelle Coconut Styling Gel to give shiny, defined curls without the flakes or crunch. Kurl Defining Creme can be used as a daily moisturizer to tame frizz and define curls. 

Kinky Curly

Kinky Curly hair has well defined tight curls in corkscrew or coil shapes. It is highly dense and full of volume. Easy to swell, tangle, frizz and craves moisture.

Guide:  Start #WashDay with a sulfate-free moisturizing shampoo and conditioner like Almond & Shea Butter Moisturizing Shampoo and Thirsty Kurls Leave-in Conditioner.

Kinky Coily hair is tightly coiled with some volume and limited movement. It requires manipulation to achieve curl definition. Hair is fragile, shrinkage, breaks easily and requires lots of moisture. 

Guide:  Moisturizing sulfate-free cleansers and conditioners that offer a lot of slip like Almond & Shea Butter Moisturizing Shampoo and Thirsty Kurls Leave-in Conditioner are perfect for this hair texture. Weekly treatments of Banana Nut & Avocado Deep Treatment will make the hair more manageable, add shine, nourish and promote growth.
