Can you tell me....

Hello everyone!:wave:

I've been lurking for a while, but now that I have done the BC I feel I am ready to reach out. OK, here's my story:

I didn't intend on doing a BC to go natural. I just wanted to have short hair. Well...it has now been almost 4 weeks after my haircut and Wow.. the hair that is growing in is super curly!! It really is a pleasant surprise so I have decided to go with it and let it all grow out and not relax it again.

But here is my problem- the hair on the sides and back is curly. The hair on the top is pin straight at the ends. I have a huge forehead and can't bear the thought of cutting all of that off. So I have been curling the top with a curling iron and finger combing it blend with the back. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

And most important: Can someone please tell me what type of curl I have???

Thanks for reading!!

    Congrats on going natural! Sounds like what you're doing is working! Have you tried a curling rod or flexirod so you won't have to use heat all the time?

    Hi Sandra!

    You know, I didn't even think of that. It would definitely give me a tighter curl on top which would probably look better for the blend.

    I think I'll pick a pack up and see if I can figure it out.

    Thanks!

    Braids. Twists. Cornrows. I have the same issue and I gradually cut the perm out but it was not easy. I had major breakage after a while and went with braids... photos on my blog check it out
