According to the quiz, I have 2a hair. However, it's also incredibly course and dense with low porosity. I recently cut 2 1/2 feet off, basically from past my butt to above my shoulder and have lots of layers seeing as my hair is so thick. I used to have lovely beachy wavy hair that I was so proud of and now my hair barely even waves at all! I thought that with short layers and less gravity it'd be easier for my hair to curl as that's what happened last time I cut it...I've tried different mouses and sea salt sprays and hair sprays after getting out of the shower but so far nothing is really working except for a curling iron which isn't too possible for every day for me because I'm inept when it comes to blow drying my hair and I obviously can't curl it when it's wet. My hair is very healthy, it's always shiny and soft (when a bad product isn't making it crunchy) and I very rarely have breakage. I used to love my hair and now I'm wishing I never cut it. Any ideas/products?
