OK so a 2-C, thank you so much for your help. I am also sure my hair does way the wave down but I want my hair even longer than it is now and cutting is not an option for me. I just bought a diffuser and tried it out for the first time doing the Pixie method I think it's called. I'm sure I did not do it 100% right as I am not used to using one but here is what it looks like after.With a tiny bit of gel...I'm afraid of gel because I don't want to end up with crunchy hair. Again thanks!
