Oh, we do have similiar hair, but you are right, GA isn't around the corner from NJ! I'll have to stay strong...I'd love to, but I doubt you're coming to Savannah for a cut. It took me forever to find a stylist who agreed that my hair looks better long. (Now if I could stick to a resolution about bangs...) Interestingly, though, as my 2b/3a hair gets longer, it also gets more spiral-y on the bottom. When straight my hair now reaches 2 inches above bsl, but when curly it's just past the break in my shoulders. Basically, the longer it gets, the shorter it gets when curly. And it's still wavy on top. Irritating.
