I've never posted, but have lurked for quite awhile. It seems like lately my hair has taken a turn for the worse though so I figured you girls were the best people to ask for help!
I have THICK THICK THICK 2c Caucasian hair, and it's always been poofy to an extent, but usually I could tame it. I would shampoo, condition, deep condition a couple times a week, put some Sebastian defrizz, and lately living proof no frizz thick wavy/curly cream in it. I would then diffuse the hair after letting it air dry for awhile, and pull out the curlier more unruly pieces into waves with my straightener. Lately however, my hair hasn't even curled as much as it's turned into a big poofy mess. Even today when I curled pieces around my fingers before I blow dried it (which used to give me almost 3a curls at some times), there was barely any curl to be found, and just a TON of poof. I do get my hair cut fairly often to pull some weight out of it, but I just got it cut about two months ago which seems like too soon to be needing another one.. For awhile I was using loreal studio out of bed texturizer on wet hair to pull the poof out some, but it just made my hair feel to nasty and sticky to keep using.
I'm really running out of ideas, and with my shampoo and conditioner both needing to be replaced soon, and an Ulta coupon that expires this weekend I figured now is the perfect time to ask for your help!
I know these pictures don't show any super poofiness, but I have been lying on my hair for an hour plus trying to calm it down before I go out with my boyfriend!
I know this picture is kind of hard to see, but it's closest to what my hair USED to look like after I did it, I don't have any other pictures I'm sorry!
I know it might not look like that much of a difference but I promise terrible pictures aside it's really getting bad, there's no body, or curl, or anything. Just poof and blah looking hair. It's really starting to get me depressed!
