Why is the top of my curly hair turning straight?
My once very curly type 3 hair is starting to straighten closest to the scalp for about 4/5" down. It used to be the kinkiest around the roots, but especially since I got is straightened twice in one month (I had done this maybe 4 total times throughout the 30 years of my existence).I'm not sure if it's because I should eat healthier, need more vitamins or simply because I'm getting older. I want my normal hair back.
If it is permanently straight when you get in the shower it's most likely heat damage. Or it could be too tight buns or ponytails. Don't brush your hair when it is wet, Use use twists, braids, and take this time to help hide it.
