Thanks so much for letting me join! I have 4a bi-racial hair, six months after big chop. This is my fourth big chop; I keep getting about a year into it and have then "relapsed" into the straightener. I REALLY want to break the cycle, but need help. How do you get past those first two years? I live in an area where curly hair is super rare and so can't count on a local salon for help. I look horrible and don't know what to do to avoid falling again. Thank you again so much. I am desperate for help and advice.
