Hi fellow curlies,
I've been reading this site for a long time but this is my first post. I've been CG for about six months.

So I've found a way to make my 3B curls really defined and pretty (DevaCurl No Poo and One Condition, comb through Kinky Curly Knot Today, plop with a flour sack towel, plus it helps that winter is here and there's less humidity), but it turns out defined, frizz-free curls also means my hair is noticeably shorter. Probably not a surprise to the rest of you, but it was to me! I'm trying to grow my hair longer--right now it's below my shoulders when wet, above them when dry.

Anyway, I guess I have to figure out what's more important: perfect curls or length. I apologize if this topic has been discussed before, but I was just wondering if anyone here ever chooses frizzy, looser curls over perfect curls because you want your hair to look longer?
