Thanks guys, my hair isn't nice like that anymore. I had just started CG and it was working really well, but things have kinda gone off track, not least of all because of health issues and problems with discontinued products and such.
I will ask her to just take the split ends off and maybe even up the back...the ends look straggly atm. The front I might ask her to go VERY easy on, its much curlier than back, and of course, inconsistent in curl either side, so I want to avoid any uneven choppage. In any case, I hope she spends a little more time on my hair that the boys, blinked and missed it!
