After looking at my mom go natural for about several months I decided to try it myself. I had the bc done in the middle of last month but I kept it flat ironed till last Thursday. I found that my mom's hair and my hair are very different.
I have these soft, tight lil curls that I hate soooo much. Everyone else thought the hairstyle was cute but I had no confidence going out in public with it. What I really want are elongated(sp?) curls but I dont know how to achieve that atm.
So I just decided to flat iron my hair again yesterday on my own...I hate doing hair...which took forever and it turned out to be one big, puffy, rough mess.
I left a big tuft of hair in the middle of my head because I got so frustrated with it.
Right now I have a bonnet on my head with an ugly afro under it. My hair always stands on top of my head when I dont tie it down before I go to sleep at night...perm or no perm...grrr
Sorry for typing so much...just needed to get this off my chest....I guess my question(s) would be
How do I achieve a look of elongated curls?
How could I flat iron my hair without it being a big, poofy mess at the end?
What are some good, manageable, short hairstyles I could try?
Oh yeah my mom says I have 3b/3c hair.
