I did the big chop about a year ago because i was too impatient to just wait for the relaxer to grow out. a few months ago i straightened my hair but the heat was too much for my curls to bear i ended up with a whole lot of heat damage i tried to repair my hair but all the protein and moisture in the world couldn't help. I have 3c/4a hair and i recently learned that some curlies can't flip back and forth between straight and curly. i guess im one of those. i've been wearing my hair straight because i honestly dont know what to do with the 2 more like 3 textures, but im ready to make a decision. to start over either i do a second big chop or grow it out and gradually cut he damage off...help! and whoever votes for growing it out i need some styling ideas pls pls pls!!!!!
