Default When did your hair "fall"

Hi Ladies!

I cut my hair back in March. My hair is mostly 4a coils (a bit smaller than the diameter of a pencil). When I cut my hair I had 14 months of natural hair. The coils grew downward. The waves at my crown... ...they went everywhere!

Anyway. I like the shape of my hair. It's about 7-8 inches now. The crown waves stay down with gel/pomade.

My question is how much weight does hair need to "fall"? I would also like my coils to stretch more. Is it likely that the weight of my hair as it grows will stretch out the curl? Or am I destined to rely on heavy gels for this effect?

When did your hair fall?

When did your coils stretch because of weight?

I think as the hair grows, it will be weighed down. I've noticed this as my hair grows. I used to use shea butter to weigh my hair down.

Can you explain a little bit what you mean by "fall"? Are we talking about the curls getting looser as the hair grows? If so, my hair may have started that. I was telling AsjaChyld that over the past couple of weeks, I've noticed 3b/3c patches in the back of my head, they weren't there when I bc'd! Is that normal, that further into the natural process that the hair type changes, or more hair types appear? TIA!

this sounds like my hair! i wish you had a pic...

i only have about 3 inches of hair now... but i can tell you that when i was transitioning, the weight of my relaxed hair made my curls look 3cish. and i had about 8 inches of relaxed hair attached to my 1 1/2 inch of curls. HTH
