Curly on top, straight underneath. Help, please?

I got my hair rebonded last October 2011. I was planning to have it again this month before the start of classes. Unfortunately, my hairstylist forbid me since my hair is dry and damaged. He also did not allow me to use iron to straighten my hair then he advised me to have several treatments so my hair would be healthy again. What I am worrying now is how to fix my hair especially when I have to go out for school. I used booby pins to hide the curls on the side which adds volume on my rounded face but still it does not look good. What hair styles would you recommend?

My hair type is 2B.

My under-layer is stick straight and won't even bend a tiny bit. I normally just leave my hair down and let the wavy hair on top hide the straight hair and hope no one notices.

You didn't say how long your hair was, but one option is to have the under-layer cut shorter than the top so that it's not longer than the rest.

Hope this helps.

I can sympathise, my underlayer doesn't curl as much as the canopy. However, it has become curlier since I went CG 15 months ago, and it blends in much better now.

If you figure it out, let me in on it. I have the same issue as Libra_moon. Straight on top, curly underneath

I have a v-shaped style of hair and it's long (reaches my bra). I'm now searching for ways on how to straighten the new-grown hair without using heat because curly on top while straight underneath really looks abnormal.
Ugh. Opposite for me, wavy underneath, straight on top. Rather have hair like yours than mine though . Tell me if anything helps, maybe it's work for me.
