    my hair started doing that when i stopped straightening and i was all "no ma'am!"

    a good haircut works wonders. i had long layers put in and i have a more rounded shape now. had about 6-8 inches of damaged ends removed as well and still trying to get used to the shortness. hair grows...

    She's right. Basically, you need a good cut. Otherwise, you're going to have to find creative ways to put up your hair, or pull back sections of it, to undo the pyramid effect.
