#1: long time curly hair suddenly not curling!
I'm a first time poster so please excuse any gaffes and my limited profile. I have worn my hair curly since I was a teenager (I am now 33) but recently my hair just won't seem to curl. I have (mostly) 3b hair and it curls pretty tightly even when well past my shoulders. But for the first time ever it just will not hold a curl. Thinking it was too long I got it cut on Monday to above my shoulders (again it normally curls well even when well past my shoulders). It is curling more than before the cut, but I would say I have 3a with a lot of 2 hair now. I definitely do not have my usually thick, tight curls--more like a combination of waves and thin curls. I have not changed hair products (I will obviously do so but I have not done so yet, so that does not explain the difference). I have never had this happen to my hair before and I am truly at a loss. I would really appreciate any suggestions you may have. Thanks.
