HELP ME PLEASE!!! 3c Hair Growing and Bounce

hey guys! so i have 3c hair. and when i was younger my mom used to do it for me and it would look pretty and healthy. then the first time i asked her to straighten my hair it was silky and smooth and pretty. so i wanted to keep doing it. i was about 7 when that happened. my hair used to be long and fluffy too. and i loved it. my hair would bounce and and move when i would move my head around. and now at 15 years old almost 16 my hair is short and damaged. i colored it and straightened it and put chemicals in it. i stopped doing all of that for the summer and i will continue to do that through out the school year. i tried the mayo treatment today and i will see how that holds up. i have been researching and looking everywhere on how to get my hair at least bouncy and movable again. and i'm also looking for a way for my hair to grow faster. right now i used lotions and milks to help it.

i am posting pictures of how long my hair is now when its wet and has product in it. when it is dry it doesnt even touch my shoulders. and IM NOT TRYING TO BE INAPPROPRIATE but i would like my hair to be a least past my breast by 2013...?

Does your hair grow fast?? And I know there are vitamins you can take to make your hair grow faster..

Are you CG?? I know there are different types of deep conditioners that you can do too, to help repair your hair. I haven't done any of them though, but you can search or go to the all-natural hair care forum or something and look for it.

HTH

my hair doesn't grow fast at all!!! its been the same length june and i have no idea what i am all i know is that i am texture 3c and its killing me to try and figure out how to do my hair! and i would start letting my mom do it again. she would love to do it but she can only do it in the summer because i have to get up early for school and most times i don't even see her when i leave....
When you are child your hair is much different then when you get older. My hair was always pretty when I was little and now it is alot different. You may not be able to get your hair just like when you were a child but I am sure you can get it movable again lol. And CG is the Curly girl method. It means you only condition your hair and dont put the infamous sulfate or silicone in your hair. They are very damaging to curly hair.
yeah i know that. but i still think my hair can be bouncy. and i do only condition it.
i feel the same way!
my hair has almost been the same length for 3 years so your not the only one D:
Wow, I've never heard of someone's hair not growing like that. I'm sorry. I would give you some of my fast growing hair if I could. It grows like 1" a month.. Maybe you could find some help from the growing out forum. I think they give you some tips if you are trying to grow out your hair.

Its not that her hair doesn't grow, everyones hair grow. Your just not retaining length that means your ends are breaking off. Focus on getting moisture on your hair and moisturize every night. Try to deep condition twice a week and even try hot oil treatments. Look up others way to moisturize your hair!

The best thing to do is stop all the chemical processes and stop straightening your hair and let your natural virgin hair grow back in and take care of it as it grows back in. The transition sucks but if you suffer through it you'll have "your" hair back.

My hair was like that all through my teens and early 20's because I didn't know how to take care of it and having 3c hair is tricky because it's often not really a texture suitable for pressing and relaxers which many black and biracial people do yet it's not suitable for techniques commonly used by whites either so the hair just becomes ruined.

Yea, I always trim & cut my own hair. Buuuuttt, I would recommend havin it professionally done, to see how they do it (go to a salon that caters to natural hair).
But if u decide to do it, u have to get a good pair of shears (hair scissors).
yeah i already have scissors for my hair. i already trimmed some. but i stopped because i don't want to mess up. and where i live there aren't really any places for my type of hair its usually only for white people hair. but my mom has this friend that she is going to take me too that i might be able to go to when ever i need help.
