Dear Ouidad: I'm growing out my thick, coarse, curly hair after 2 years of post-chemo hair. I'm miserable! Small clips and headbands don't handle my thick hair. Ideas?

A: One option is a softening treatment. It is a technique to loosen the curls with very mild relaxants blended with Deep Treatment. It works to soften out-of-control curls, making them more maintenance free and healthy looking.
