I second honeybebe. I thought my hair was wavy/frizzy before I went curly girl. Now it's earnestly curly. Even when I don't style it with products it's a solid very curly 2C. Never puffy or frizzy. I don't blow dry and I wash my hair at night often and I can honestly say my second day hair looks just as good if not better than the first. I attribute that to my hair being healthier than it was. Now that it's properly moisturized I'll never have to flat iron again when I wake up.
Also like Chloe said, layers should be subtle. I got a bunch of cascading ones put in this week and they really helped with me. I'm going to grow them out to be longer layers. My hair was to my breasts before the cut so I aim to be there again. But there was just so much hair that was one length at the bottom and so much that was frazzled from flat ironing. Plus in order to achieve the shape I wanted I had to sacrifice a few inches. I don't mind. I love me some layers.
