Default My hair grows UP not down - HELP!

Hi,I am a one week newbie CG and have decided to take the plunge with finally (after 47 yrs of the same haircut - poodle!) going to Devashan in September (5 hrs south of Ithaca, NY). However, my hair grows UP, not down. Any others with this problem? Suggestions? Help, please!! Thanks, Randi -- picture enclosed

very thick hair can tend to grow up until it has enough lenght to weigh it down. How thick your hair is can determine when that is.

Sorry I have no suggestions -- I have a short pixie cut that I think about growing out from time to time, but never have made it past the suffering with very thick hair that grows up and out instead of down.

I am not sure there's anything TO do except suffer with it until it gets to that length where it will fall over. For me that is about a year! Meanwhile I think i could dye it bright red and do a little moonlighting at McDonald's when Ronald wants the day off . . .

I'm not helping, am I?

Fig - ROFL!!! Nothing like thinking positively!

Randi - Your hair is beautiful! It looks like my Mom's hair. (Only she's much older and prefers to always have short hair.)

I, on the other hand, have a TON of 3C/4A hair. I stopped relaxing back in November 2007, and after the big chop, my hair is now about 8 inches long when stretched. However, my hair is just recently (FINALLY!) turning downward.

I guess it just takes time and plenty of patience. In the meantime, you might want to experiment with different conditioners. I just started using Jessicurl Too Shea! as a leave-in and it's wonderful! Though it might be too heavy for some, I need to use quite a bit, but it keeps my hair from getting poofy.

Hope this helps... HAPPY GROWING!

Mine grows up and out before finally getting heavy enough to lay down.
