I've had type 3C curls (or tighter) since I was 10. I'm 23 now, and my hair is becoming more and more limp over the last year. I was always told that after I had a baby my hair might lose its curl, but I haven't been pregnant yet. However, two years ago I had a roommate who used a curling iron on her hair to make bigger smoother curls (she had practically no curl to start with). This technique worked beautifully on my hair, because it was already so tight and curly it held the curl perfectly all day... big bouncy perfect curls!
Now, a couple months back I moved from Arizona (nice and dry, great for no-frizz hair) to Nebraska (lots of humidity) and now my hair is losing its curl. Could it just be the weather, or maybe just the curling iron (I do the curling iron thing 2-3 times a week on average)? I'm scared I'm losing my curl!!! For the next two months I've vowed not to use the curling iron in an attempt to fix this problem, but I've gone from a 3C to a stringy mix... help!!!! Anybody else had this problem, or know how to fix it!!!???

P.S.
I'm already on the no-shampoo, no brush, no chemical diet for my hair... going on five or six years now. This is the big curling iron curls http://www.flickr.com/photos/photoma...1928/lightbox/
