Default Just did the kind-of Big chop!

So I was 10 month post relaxer and I decided to do the Big chop because i couldn't stand the matted hair, the tangles, and the coarseness!!! I am so happy with what it turned out to be. I Love it so much! I feel like its me.

But there are some hairs that are kind of straight and very dry. ItsThere's obvious curl definition in some areas but some are just lacking a little life! What should I do?

Really? Your hair needs help?? You and your hair look absolutely fantastic!

Not sure I have any valuable advice, but truly: it's a great cut and your curls look wonderful
