I really hope someone can offer me a little advice here. I chemically straightened my hair a year ago. It was wonderful for about 2 months but it quickly regained all of its original volume with none of the shape.
Now I've decided I want my curls back- where do I begin?
I have 2-3 inches of curly regrowth then the rest of the ends is just poofy and fairly straight down to 4 inches past my shoulders. It's all one length at the mo and I normally wear it tied back just to hide what a mess it is. The ends are in all sorts of trouble though, so I'm getting them cut off soon.
But is there a type of haircut or style I can ask my stylist for that will encourage curliness instead of poofiness?
Do you just recommend going for the big chop? How big does the chop have to be? Couldn't I just get some layers? Do I have to start using curly hair products and scrunching it up again? (when I do that at the mo it just ends up looking a bit limp and sorry for itself)
Is there any other way?
I seriously would never have permanently straightened my hair if I had considered how hard it is to grow it out again.
I feel like a right mess because my hair NEVER looks like I've bothered with it, even when I've spent a long time conditioning it and so on. I don't like using heat styling on my hair every day as its so damaging.
Anyway ladies (and gents) I hope you can help the dilemma
hope to hear from some of you soon
