Hello Curls!

I've underwent chemo twice now...the first time my hair came back, it was wavy...no big deal...i usually straightened it bc I've had straight hair my whole life (I'm asian btw).

Now this second time around, my hair is coming back curlier than ever! I don't know what to do with it. Here's what it looks like now when I attempt to look cute lol (sorry for the bad webcam quality)

& this is what it looks like right out of the shower..semi dry with some products in it.
(see attachment)
I'm worried my hair is only going to get bigger & not grow down
Can anyone tell me what my hair will look like??

Hello Curls!-img00102-20120120-1123.jpg  
first of all, how are you feeling? Hope you're doing well!
secondly, curly hair can get poofy. But with the right hair cut and products, it will grow down and not be that triangle shape.
Will you be having more chemo? Don't know if that will change the texture and pattern of your hair.

IMO, when curly hair is super short, that's when it's the most difficult... but as you gain length, you gain weight which pulls the hair down.

go to Live Curly Live Free - Home and buy the ebook. It's 10$ and amazing. All the info you need is there. You can find the info on the boards but with the ebook it's all in one central location. I use this book constantly! BTW, a stylist from the boards wrote the book so you're supporting her.

I have fine, thin to normal density (i have lupus and lose hair from that), 3A/B curl pattern, normal porosity.
Fine hair needs protein so I use protein daily.

Some of my favorite products
Conditioner
GVP The Conditioning Balm- Sally's
ION Effective Care Treatment- moisture and protein from Sally's
