#1: Starting over!
I just found this site yesterday and I am soo excited! I am biracial and have always had incredibley curly hair that no one in my family knew how to deal with so I had a bad hair childhood. In my teens I began blowdrying it straight and everyone loved it but the upkeep sucked so most of the time it stayed slicked back in a bun! I started wearing in curly since college ...always trying new products and never liking the way it looked and finally started relaxing it just over a year ago...also tried to dye it blonde (which fried it) and straightening it with a flatiron til it is so damaged that I cannot wear it curly when I want to ...it looks awful with split ends. So today I decided it was time to start over! I cut it practically all off! I have sworn to myself that I will from this day forward LOVE my curls and accept them as God gave them to me! I will not touch them with a flatiron, but allow them to grow out and be beautiful and healthy!AllI need to do now is find the right products to keep them that way...any advice? I just bought Catwalk Curls Rock Sham./Cond. and Bedhead Smalltalk @ the suggestion of the stylist that cut it...but we will see. This my 1st time I am trying such expensive products (Usually I use supermarket brands like Dove, Pantene, Fructis, Vive.ect...)
