I have a picture of myself (profile picture). Basically when I have short layers and/or scrunch my hair I look like I have 3a hair, but now I have been trying to grow my hai out and its getting wavier as it grows. I don't use as many products in my hair (mousses, gels etc.), but I do hot oil treatments- maybe that's why it looks more weighed down than it used to be? It almost looks wavy now. Should I get my layers shorter again to make my hair look like it used to in the picture, or should I keep growing it?
