I am 13.I used to have a 3a to a 3b style hair and i used to hate it (BIG MISTAKE). I only straightened it once and never permed. I started using a new shampoo around 9.BTW: Never got hair cut except trims. It got flater and flatter. I WAS SO SAD I MISSED MY CURLYS I got a hair cut around 11 and it got kinda curly (2b BARELY) It got kinda curly when wet but once it dried it got all fuzzy ( still like that).My hair isnt the same. It looks different . I WANT THE CURLS BACK! Now it is the same length it was when I was 9.

I SWAM A LOT too but always put it in a braid and now i use a cap and condition and wash hair everyday after swimming
