I, like another young lady mentioned, BC'd about a year ago and the strands just keep coming back, this time with full force! I have tight beautiful curls in the midst of the straight strands but quite frankly the mix of the two is unsightly and I don't know what to do. I'm thinking about cutting my hair again, it's not long anyway (I don't even think it reaches an inch). I've tried curl product upon curl product and they'll work fare enough for the curls but the straight strands mixed in with it just doesn't look good and it makes me feel like I look dirty lol.

Should I cut it again in hopes of saying goodbye to the straight strands? Or should I wait it out a few months longer to see if they grow out??
Girl, cut those ends on off! :-)

To the OP, yeah cut them off!!

Terressentials Pure Earth Mud Wash; Elucence MBC (now really just for cowashing, leg shaving or emergencies); Curl Junkie: Repair Me, Deep Fix, Curl Rehab; AOHSR (retiring); Oyin Handmade: Honey Hemp, Hair Dew, J&B; Qhemet Biologics: BRBC (retiring- prefer Oyin HD), AOHC, OHHB; Jojoba Oil for scalp; Castor Oil or Shea butter to seal; Henna & Ayurvedic pastes when I can be bothered.

Still searching for the perfect stylers, but loving CJ CIAB over everything so far
