So I'm at least 4 months (maybe 5?) since my last cut. My hair is of course more tangly than usual, and it's a little... Heavy. The curls are sagging.

I've been doing a lot of protein lately, but I also give a lot of moisture, and it doesn't feel overly dry.

I've been out of my FSG, too, and haven't ha a chance to make more.

I clarified not long ago, but maybe I should again.

It's also been a while since I did a gelatin treatment...

So I guess I'm asking, in your experience, how much has needing a cut affected your curl pattern?

My last cut was a Devacut - my first ever. Not sure if that makes a difference or not.
And I'm sure just the added length is making it heavier and pulling on the curl, too.

I think it's likely a combo of issues for me - as is often the case - but I'm wondering what percentage of that is the cut? (or lack there of, in this case!)
