Straight Hair Underneath

I have come across several wavies who tell me that their bottom layer of hair is straight and hangs below their curl and there is nothing they can do about it. I have the same issue with my hair, and while it is a pain it can be fixed.Solution: When getting your hair cut, get the straight layer trimmed a little shorter than your waves. It might seem like an odd concept, but when the straight part of your hair dries, it will shrink up below your waves and will never be seen. Trimming the bottom layer shorter solves the problem of being able to see straight hair hanging from your waves, which in turn takes your attention off of them. It's another quick and easy way to solve a problem that seems to be unmanageable.
