THis is a group of stylists who have banded together to share techniques for taking the best care possible of curly hair, share the best styling and cutting techniques. They are professionals who LOVE and UNDERSTAND curly hair. Frankly, if you are near one of them, I'd try getting an appointment and working with them on a plan to restore your hair to the best it can be. You might even start liking your hair. A lot of their work is displayed here https://www.facebook.com/curlyhairartistry and if you can find a facebook page for the one near you, they may also have examples. These are the kind of stylists who will work WITH you on a real plan.
