Hello Curls!

I've underwent chemo twice now...the first time my hair came back, it was wavy...no big deal...i usually straightened it bc I've had straight hair my whole life (I'm asian btw).
Now this second time around, my hair is coming back curlier than ever! I don't know what to do with it. Here's what it looks like now when I attempt to look cute lol (sorry for the bad webcam quality)
& this is what it looks like right out of the shower..semi dry with some products in it.
(see attachment)
I'm worried my hair is only going to get bigger & not grow down :(
Can anyone tell me what my hair will look like??

    first of all, how are you feeling? Hope you're doing well!
    secondly, curly hair can get poofy. But with the right hair cut and products, it will grow down and not be that triangle shape.
    Will you be having more chemo? Don't know if that will change the texture and pattern of your hair.

    IMO, when curly hair is super short, that's when it's the most difficult... but as you gain length, you gain weight which pulls the hair down.

    go to Live Curly Live Free - Home and buy the ebook. It's 10$ and amazing. All the info you need is there. You can find the info on the boards but with the ebook it's all in one central location. I use this book constantly! BTW, a stylist from the boards wrote the book so you're supporting her.

    I have fine, thin to normal density (i have lupus and lose hair from that), 3A/B curl pattern, normal porosity.
    Fine hair needs protein so I use protein daily.

    Some of my favorite products
    GVP The Conditioning Balm- Sally's
    ION Effective Care Treatment- moisture and protein from Sally's
    Salon Care Honey and Almond conditioner- cowash conditioner has a little protein
    Shescentit CoCo Creme Leave in Conditioner
    Aubrey Organics GPB Conditioner
    Jessicurl Too Shea conditioner- serious moisture
    Colorful Neutral Protein Filler- add to products or follow directions on the side
    Aphogee 2 minute reconstructor- medium protein treatment

    LA Looks Nutri Curl Gel
    LA Looks Sports Gel
    Homemade flaxseed gel- amazing and cheap. you can customize it to your needs. I add Colorful Neutral Protein Filler, agave for hold and a little oil http://www.naturallycurly.com/curltalk/recipes-%97-hair-body/61208-no-fail-flax-seed-gel-i-finally-did-twice.html
