I have been straightening my hair for years...and without products. My hair is so damaged I have to get trims often. I wish I could pull off my natual hair. It would be less tedious. The problem is my hair curls in the middle of my head due to me hair weighing down the curls. I want curls from top to bottom. Also, I was thinking going shoulder length would fux the problem, but I am scared of looking like a grandma. Haha. I love A-line cuts. They are beautiful! Does that work with curls?
