Half and Half

EdenRoseEdenRose Posts: 181Registered Users
My hair is kinda weird. I mean I am happy with it. Its's just odd I had a hair cut about a month or so ago and i think i got most of my relaxed ends in the back with it but i still have some in the front so the back of my hair is just curly. Like wash and turns curly , i would say it's mostly all natural back there. But the front is like some new growth and straight. I can post a picture. I was just wondering if anyone else has the half and half look and what styles they use.I am currently using the straight half as a bang and using a headband as a divider

Tons of whirls and curls and coils on my head. My hair's sometimes my best friend and other times we're at odds. But either way it's curls to the end. No need for a relaxer cause there's no reason to stress, my tresses are at their best

    I have 3c hair (I'm guessing, I have yet to get too deep into figuring out my texture) and currently transitioning as well. My hair is the same, as in curly in the back but still straight in the front. The left side of my hair is way straighter, the relaxed ends AND where the hair has grown out whereas the right side is curly like the back.

    I'm deployed at the moment so most of the time it's in some sort of bun or ponytial. Occasionally I'll do a big french braid, or french fishtail.

    When I'm at home I use a banana clip to pull the hair back and I let it do it's own thing. I can tuck the straight ends from the front under the curls this way as well.

    I know exactly what you mean.. I had the half and half thing going on since I had gotten off relaxers. I recently went to a stylist to see if I could get some insight and to have a good wash.. I just cant seem to get the deep wash that I like myself. When she consulted me she said that most of my hair was natural and I had major new growth like 5'' worth of it plus its very thick.. my edges are the worst though.. they never want to lay down to save their lives... But, it might be better now that I have gotten a trim but, Its still below my shoulders.... I transitioned quicker than I thought I would... Less than a year..

    that's kinda how i ended up BCing because i went to a hair dresser and she showed me how much new growth i had, and honestly i didn't think it was alot but when i thought about it's summer and why not go shorter if it means my everything is natural and start from scratch since my hair was growing fast anyway.

    You are a brave one. I could not bring myself to do the big chop so, I stayed frustrated and worked with my hair for a while until I started getting single strand knots. I only cut a small amount. I would love to see how it looks on you. I bet its fab!

    Same problem here too. I think I've finally built up the courage to cut it this weekend. We'll see if I go through with it. In the meantime I do cute buns to show off my waves and hide the raggedy permed ends. There are pics on my blog. http://AHairStory.Wordpress.com

    If you post a clearer picture, I'd probably be able to help you figure out your hair type.

    I was tooo chicken to do the big chop. I just scrunch the straighter parts with light gel and try to get them to look more like the rest of my hair. If I deep condition its easier to accomplish.
