Hi all, I'm working on growing my hair out again, right now it brushes the neck of my tshirts. My problem is my hair is very thick and gets weighted down which pulls out the curls and I'd like to grow it just above my bustline. Do any of you have any suggestions on how to make the transition between where it is now and the length I want it to be? also product recommendations would be appreciated as well. I'm worried about longer hair pulling my face down and making me look older than I am but I'd like to try something other than the shorter cuts. I have pictures posted in the albums section under the title My Hair, these pics are about a year or so old but the style is still the same just a little longer. Thanks!
