I'm 15 and a 3b/3a. Friday, I got my hair cut and dyed. I had to dye it because I had some pretty obnoxious highlights I didn't want to keep. It's been a few days and my hair isn't quite the texture or curl pattern it used to be. It used to be more 3a and now my curls are much more separated and small. (3b) I'm not a huge fan. My hair is a lot shorter now because my curls spring up so much now. It's very disappointing because I was working on growing my hair out so my it wouldn't be as poofy. I use bumble and bumble curl calming cream and reactivating mist. What product should I be using to sort of relax these crazier curls?? I'm hoping to draw them out more and sorta relax them. (It would be really great if I could find it at walgreens or CVS)
Now that it's been like 4 days, my hair is starting to get a tad better. The colors a bit lighter and less dull and because I've been braiding my hair 24/7, it's not tight thin kinkyish curs anymore. I'm washing it again tonight or tomorrow and I'm sorta afraid about what the outcome might be!! Still any suggestions anybody??

My hair is sort of like yours and to way my hair down a little I put Tresemme flawless curls mousse and it's GREAT! Also if your hair gets ever dry try puttin extra virgin olive oil in your hair which is also really great! It makes your hair very shiny and healthy. You can find both of these products any where! Good luck
Sorry it's been a while! Thanks for the olive oil suggestion! As for an update on my hair, I hit up a new salon about a month ago, and my new stylist absolutely could not believe what was going on. It turns out the last girl to cut my hair ended up cutting one side about two inches shorter than the other, and the way she cut my hair made it split super fast. She basically gave me split ends rather than fixing them. This shocked me because it was a nice salon, and everyone I knew who went to see that stylist loved her! I definitely won't be seeing her any time soon. As for the oil treatment stuff, I haven't gotten the chance to try that yet. I think I might give it a go tonight! My hair is in need of serious repair. My last haircut stylist was brilliant, though, because the way he was extra careful and super exact and precise while cutting my hair combined with the way he cut it have helped a lot with the unruliness. Hopefully in a month or two I can resume my quest for long HEALTHY hair!
