Rainboe, my hair actually *didn't* do that until I switched to Chagrin Valley shampoo bars for my minimal washing. I think the chemicals in store-bought shampoos, even the "good" ones, were weighing it down a lot. I still have the opposite problem, though - my roots/top layers are curly, my ends on the bottom layers like to go limp and almost straight. I'm hoping my haircut on Saturday will fix that - I found my stylist through this forum!

Someday my hair will be long enough to pineapple... Sigh!
