Default Help! Has chemo taken my curls!?

I had radiation and chemo this summer. I think my 3c/4a hair is growing back straight. I don't know who to be with straight hair! Have others had this experience? Can anyone talk me off the ledge?

Pendesd, I know people who've had radiation and chemo and their hair eventually grew back in the same pattern as before. It will take a while.

I wish you all the very best! Your curls will come back - let us know when they do.

Oh, THANKS for that reassurance. I felt like my personality was leaving me, lol. I'll keep you posted!
