My goal was originally waist length curly, but I've never grown it out past where it is now which is just below APL when straight. So I think I'm just going to try to get it waist length straight. Some problems I'm having: my hair is pretty thin (ponytail is about 3.0/3.5 inches around), split ends are setting in and I just got my hair trimmed a month ago, and I like to straighten about twice a month (I have to have different styles even though I'm absolutely in love with my curls, I just like change) so idk if there are any suggestions from you girls, but I admire all of your curls and I think it's fun we are in this together!
