Type 3b hair growing in straight?
My hair was always very wavy, frizzy, fine and thick as I was young. When I hit puberty (around 11) it went from Type 2 to a 3b/3c and it became extremely frizzy, thicker, and dry. I didn't take care of it for years and it became worse. Recently (this past year), I am now 15 and have dyed it twice (over a year ago). I have stopped damaging it and started using biotin, conditioning treatments, no heat, and overall just keeping my hair healthy. All of the sudden (what seemed to be a miracle) my shiny, blonde, fine, wavy hair has started to grow in at the roots. My hair is almost stomach length. The consistency has also gone almost to a 2c/3a. Is it possible that my hair is changing due to hormones or possibly how well I am maintaining my hair? Some people have said it is just getting longer, therefore the hair will become wavy-er, but the whole texture is different at top. I don't want to get my hopes up, but if I get my childhood hair back I will be ecstatic! Please offer your ideas!
Since your hair is long, it is probably just getting weighed down at the root, leading to a looser curl pattern up top. This was my situation until I got a haircut.
