How do I get my hair curly again?

When I was a kid I had 2c/3a hair but now I have 2a hair because everyone loved straight hair so I colored it and straightened it a lot.

    This site:

    Live Curly Live Free - Home

    also has a lot of useful information. "Curly Hair Basics" will give you information on your hair (not curl) type, or you can use their hair analysis and let them figure it out for you. This will give you a starting point for figuring out what ingredients your hair will like best.

    Basically regaining curl is a balancing process of protein, moisture, repair, and sometimes growing out damage.
    Be Happy!
