#21: 3A straighter when shorter?
I think this depends on one's particular hair - in my case, I have some 2C hair on my crown, and the rest is pretty much 3A, and my hair itself is very thick but fine in texture, and heavy, so if it gets to shoulder length, the weight of it starts loosening my curls if they aren't layered properly. I had my hair cut recently similarly to Denim's(sp.?)and my curls came back big-time. Plus it's still not too short by any means - it looks pretty!
