Thanks to everyone who left me feedback...I think that must be it...the fact that hair stylists always make sure the sides are highlighted since they are what you see the most, so since everytime I did, those pieces got bleached over and over, thats prob why they won't curl. Also, I am trying to pay more attention when I plop and trying to put my sides more in the middle and that is helping a little bit. Hopefully when I get my re:coil it will help. I can't wait to buy more CG friendly products so my hair can get healthy and curly.
Thanks again girls!!!
I am currently a 2C who wants to be a 3...I'm trying for anything that will make my limp boring waves into bouncy curls...ANYONE PLEASE HELP!!!!
