It feels like the top layer of my hair is dead (3b)
Growing up I had these beautiful curls although I'll admit they were a tad on the frizzy times when not styled well, all-in-all I loved them. But throughout elementary and middle school my mom had a habit of relaxing my hair, and constantly taking me to the salon to get blowouts. Over the years my hair became more and more damaged and my mom even blamed it on my constant washing in the summer! Now I'm dying to get my hair back curly. Other than the lifeless top layer (which is basically curls that dry out faster and aren't as curly but rather a barely there wavy that don't match the rest of my hair at all, no type of products get the curls to hold), the curls underneath are still healthy and beautiful. What should I do?
