New Curly Girl! - Hair Disaster Story inside!
Hello All! I have been reading reviews on for about 5 years now. It never occurred to me to join - until I had an AWFUL experience with a hairstylist.
This particular stylist Convinced me to try a "D-Curl" Treatment or "Silkener" - to tame my very curly, very fine hair. She insisted it would help the broken pieces around my temple grow out - and that it would only remove the frizz not REDUCE the curl. (This was at the very end of May - the 30th actually).

Well - as you can imagine - it did reduce the curl and now it's sort of straighter on top and curly at the bottom. Most people can't see a difference, even though I feel it looks terrible!

It's funny - I never knew how much I identified with my curls - until something happened to them. Now I am so paranoid that they will never again look the same. I am anxiously awaiting my new growth - and I have vowed NEVER to touch my hair again, not even to color it (until it starts graying - but I'm only 24). The only thing I will be doing to it - is trimming it (at a great Salon I found in RI - where I live - where they cut it dry etc.)

I decided to join CurlTalk for some support! I look forward to hearing from many of you!

Hi, kellycurl, and welcome. Wow 5 years, you've been around here longer than me. Glad to see you have finally joined. I'm sure I don't have to tell you how great this site is.

Sorry to hear about your hair. It is so frustrating that so many hair stylists don't know ANYTHING about curly hair. I know what it's like to worry about your like that. I lost a lot of curl after having my kids, and I don't think it will ever be the same :cry: . But good luck with your hair, hopefully when it has grown out more you'll see the same old curl. :D

Your salon??
Hey kellycurl,

What salon do you go to? I, too, live in RI.

I've decided to let my hair grow a bit after chopping it real short for years because it was the only way I could keep the mane "controlled." I realize my (straight-haired) stylist just did not know what to do with it.

I just found Aubrey Organics shampoo and conditioner at Whole Foods market and it has made such a huge difference!

Please tell me about your salon! When it is time for a shaping/trim, I need a place to go! :)
