Growing out ear-length 2B curly hair? Suggestions/tips?
So I used to keep my hair really short all the time because it is, not only curly, but super thick, but I decided that short hair for seven years was enough, so I've started growing it out, but I'm sort of worried about what it's going to look like when it's significantly longer because it's already much different than it was when it was shorter (and it's about top-of-the-chest length right now.)

Here's the oldest picture I have from when it was short... (The front is flat-ironed, obviously...)


A bit longer...




And that brings us about to now... (This picture is from four days ago so it's almost exact.)


(Sorry about my geeky expressions.)

So this is just a wee bit over a year of growing. Anyway, I think it's weird that it's getting curlier as it's getting longer, because I thought it was supposed to be less-curly because it's heavier. I'm just wondering if anyone with a similar hair type to me has had a similar experience or knows what I might should expect for the future -- curlier, less curly, frizzier, etc?

Frizz depends on how you treat your hair, it can be frizzy at any length if it is damaged, dehydrated or brushed. Wavy hair often looks curlier as it lengthens die to the large pattern repeat.

Don't understand what you are worried about? Start caring for your hair like curly hair instead of straight hair (many of us follow the Curly Girl method), consider a curly specialist haircut (see salon reviews on the main NC site).
