What do I do with this hair??
I have 3a hair. I had been naturally curly for a couple of years, but recently got fed up. My hair was poofy, out of control, and the only way it looked good was when I washed it every day. Then I got annoyed, so about five months ago I started straightening it again. I have tried to keep my hair healthy despite the heat, using heat protectant, deep conditioner, and only washing twice a week. Unfortunately, my hair looks terrible everyday since I got a trim (and layers) and it won't fully straighten, the bottom half poofs, and I just don't know what to do with it anymore. Is there anyway I can straighten so it's healthy and smooth, or at least find a middle ground where it's only wavy?? Because, as much as I hate to admit it, my curly hair is just too much maintenance for me (and just too much in general because it's also thick). Any help would be great! Thanks!
There is a straightening board on curl talk
Maybe just "do " it every other day, and put it up on the days you don't "do" it. Like in clips or a barrette or loose bun or something.
