thanks for the reply! last time the bangs were softened was in september 2010...i can see the new growth is almost 3b curly so i'm excited for that- but the ends are soo scraggly & i feel it just doesn't fit in w/the rest of my hair.
i don't think actual bangs would look right on me, but i might trim a bit more of the damaged part then i actually want to just to get rid of it...i was hoping there'd be another solution to it..you def helped so thank you. do you have a link to the thread you mentioned?
