I went through a phase where I hated my natural hair & made the mistake of relaxing my hair and straightening it daily. Now I miss my natural hair. My hair was pretty damaged from the chemicals and heat, and was not curling at all (even after doing many treatments) so I chopped off my hair (at least 4 inches) My hair is now at my shoulders with no layers, and now its barely wavy and mostly straight/frizzy. It looks terrible! It seems like the top layer is the worst.
I need advice on how to get my hair back to a decent looking wave!
I attached a photo of how my hair was before I ruined it. (This is an average hair day, sometimes it was much more wavy&curly, sometimes it was slightly less wavy)
2C curl pattern, medium porosity, high density, medium width, shoulder length.
Also try a protein treatment followed by a deep conditioner. That usually has a very strong positive effect.
2/c-3a Coarse hair med. density.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
I love all the Curl Junkie products. and current HG gel: Ouidad Curl Quencher moisturizing gel. Still hoping for 2nd day hair.... Every day is a gift
