Half curly half wavy dry hair
 
So I have long hair. It's part curly, part wavy. The layers on top are curly, while the layers under are just wavy.
When I was a child my hair was straight - but then it got wavy, then curly, as it was thin before and got really thick later.
I often straightened it before I even needed to - so it's even more dry than it would be naturally. And it's kinda damaged. So could that be the reason that a part of it won't curl?
Also, now I always have to do something with it - either straighten or curl it, because I can't leave it so weird looking.

It also is very frizzy and it kinda "bloats" ? I don't know a better term.

What to do with it?

:pale:

sounds as if your hair is seriously dry. i bet it will be all curly after deep conditioning with heat, protein treatments and a haircut/trim putting LONG layers into it.

what products do you use currently? do you know your hair's properties?

I had a haircut two weeks ago. :) I have layers.

I use shampoo , a hair mask, and a hair conditione.

I don't know the properties:(

you can read about hair properties in many websites, here are some:

Live Curly Live Free - Curly Hair Basics

another one is curljunkie.blogspot.com

the most important property is probably texture, then porosity. this helps you pick out products with ingredients that work best for your hair.

can you list the ingredients on your hair products?

the more information you give us, the better we can help.

I have wavy hair in the very front around my face and on the top layer of my hair and tighter curls underneath - I have been trying different no heat curls doing rag type curls or large pin curls - I tried bantu knots and they were way to tight - will keep trying different methods - I really want to stay away from heat on my hair
