My hair grows OUT sideways, not Down.
I am transitioning 3b/3c hair but no matter what I do, it wants I grow out and it's infuriating. I'd even prefer it if the top layer grew UP, but sadly no. I've tried everything from heavy creams and butters to trying to stretch it, and recently tried the tangleteezer to see if that helped. It did not. Any advice?
that's kinda how 4c hair is but it grows up , but once your hair gets heavier, gravity pulls it down. For now just try styles that make work for you
Gotta work with what you go BUT even with that said... see about getting a Deva cut... those things TRANSFORM the shape of your hair. See this... http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlreading/kinky-hair-type-4a/what-is-a-deva-cut-is-it-for-me/
