Help! my hair is straightening on half my head

Wendy.JohnsoWendy.Johnso Posts: 2Registered Users Curl Neophyte
When I was 13 my hair went from straight and now At 43 I am going from curly to straight. I have been following the curly girl method for about 5 years and I learned to love my hair. I cut it shorter and now half my hair is just wavy. Does anyone else have this issue what do I do? Any ideas or advice?

    It looks like it still falls on the curly side. Our hair can change pattern throughout our life, and hormones may be an issue in the change.

    That's a really cute cut!  Have you just had it done?  My hair seems to act weird after getting cut.  It takes a could weeks for it to settle down.  You might just need a little time.

    I have this issue. The hair on the sides of my face is less curly than on the back of my head, and the hair on the sides is also less dense and less thick (less coarse). Most people have a variety of curl patterns on their head. 

    I try to add a little extra hard-hold gel to my less curly parts and make sure that I don't overcondition them. That helps a bit. But if I really want them to look curlier, I usually have to touch them up with a curling iron.
