Okay, curlies, I'm having issues again.
Long ones, apparently.
My hair is a bit longer than bsl right now, about to the tip of my breast (sorry, that's the best description I can figure out). It's around 2c/3a, with definite spirals around my face, waves w/ curly ends, kinda-spirally-if-u-look-down-them-and-become-curls-when-interlocked waves, and a straight underlayer (yup, that's my random head).
My idea of short right now is just above shoulder length - I view that as short because it would mean being unable to put my hair in a high ponytail or french twist type style. I really like those because they are so cute and easy for me to do, which I can't say about a lot of hairstyles.
Anyway, I know that people with my hairtype tends to lose curl when shorter, which makes me very sad with the additional springy spiraling I've seen just with a few days' attempt of the CG routine. (Still getting the hang of that one, the condish doesn't want to leave my scalp after but my hair is happy.)
However, going off to college in the fall may warrant a big hair change and I keep trying to tell myself, "It's just hair. It grows. You can join the growing-out club if you don't like it." But I just keep thinking, "The curls, the curls! What about the curls
?!" My hair is likely to be just wavy at that length, and I absolutely adore the gorgeous hair of the wavies on here and around me IRL, but...losing curl!
ETA: Another issue I have is I love plopping and cannot stand
having hair on my face or on the back of my neck. I know above shoulder length hair often can't plop. Eek!
What do you think, curlies? (I'm practically begging for you all to tell me I'm being silly and to just cut it.
Thanks for sticking with me through this big ol' thread! Whew!
