Thanks Nej. I got er done
The cut looks good so far. I still have to see what happens after I wash my hair tomorrow. My stylist did everything he could to coax my hair back to super-curldom, including adding "curl boosting" stylers and massaging sections of it with his hands (yup, he did that.). He did everything short of sticking one of my fingers in an electrical socket. Hopefully tomorrow when I wash everything out, the curl won't revert back to half-hearted waves and patches of soft fuzz. I'll probably do another protein treatment and/or an ACV rinse unless someone here convinces me that will lead to imminent disaster.
If my hair doesn't spring back to life tomorrow, I'll be really disappointed ... But it's hair, not the loss of a job or a limb, so I guess i'll cope.
