Dec 15, 2011 - I have type 3b to 3c hair and have tried to manage these curls for years with every curly hair product that that has crossed my path, from gels to moose to hot oil treatments. There was even a point in time when I chemically straightened my hair to get it under control. Over the past 20 years I've tried several different hair stylists. All recommended the same hair style - natural, long, one-length with gel as the product of choice for weight. I have so much curl and volume to my hair that it was always difficult to wear my hair down with out it forming into a large pyramid of curly friz. It never failed, by the end of the day, I would have it tied back in some way or another. I've been on and off this site for about a year now just researching products etc... I decided to give one of the recommended stylists a try. I visited Luann's salon with an open mind to let her do what ever she wanted. I must honestly say after all I've been through, she is a miracle worker, a true artist with curls. Her cutting dry technique made so much sense. I walked out of her salon with the cutest most sophisticated looking stack bob. I'm a new women. I can't believe I actually have a hair style!! It's so fabulous. I can't tell you how many complements I've received. Plus, she was so informative. Luann educated me on different products, gel, cream, oils that would work effectively with my curls and how to apply them, and several styling techniques for my new do. I feel like a new women! Thanks Luann.
