I wanted to posted this for other 2B's thinking of going super short. If you are on the fence, DO IT. I love having short hair. It's so easy. My hair reference (Carrie Mulligan), as well as myself, are attached.

Products: Chagrin Valley shampoo bar and coconut oil as leave in conditioner/styler.

2a wavy. acv is my friend. flax gelee weighs down my hair too much.

conditioner: curls

Cute! I agree, wavy, short hair can look good with little effort because we already have that natural texture for a "tousled" look.
So cute. I always wanted that but mine is straight with flips when short

The knit cap keeps my hair close to my head and my hair dries pretty straight.

If I want my hair to dry with waves (like in the picture), after I'm done shampooing and when my hair is still wet, I part my hair with a wide tooth comb and use the comb to spread a little bit of gel into my hair. Then, I scrunch the front longer piece to create a wave and the front shorter piece. For the sides and back, I scrunch and touse (mostly touse).

Cool! Thanks for posting your pics, sfaithj!

I want to cut mine again, but I'm afraid with my loose wave, mine would look straight...if you have a minute, would you mind posting pics of how yours looked longer, for comparison?
2a/2b, fine and thin
new wavy!

currently using:
cleansing: BS/ACV rinse weekly
PT: Gelatin PT
Conditioner: Desert Essences fragrance-free
Styling: LOTD Aloe
sure thing! keep in mind, my hair only does this nice wavy look when i style it correctly. when i dont style it correctly, it looks straight with a flip up (which i hate!) a la farrah fawcett.

Cool! Thanks for posting your pics, sfaithj!

Awesome, thanks so much! It's beautiful both ways, but I think your new cut is super-flattering.

It is as I suspected--yours is wavier than mine, especially at the roots. I bet I would be a straighty at that length. (Or a mostly-straighty with an unfortunate flip here and there, as you mention)
