    It can be difficult to get curls and waves all the way to the roots with some types of hair, so it requires some extra work. Here are some articles that might be helpful: https://www.naturallycurly.com/curlreading/volume

    I don't know much about haircuts, so I cannot advise you there. I would try following some of the tips in the above articles and then seeing if you need a special curly haircut.
    Low poo: Intelligent Nutrients (IN) Harmonic; Oribe Cleansing Creme
    RO: IN Harmonic
    LI: CJ Beauticurls; Jessicurl (JC) Gelebration Spray
    DC: JC Deep Conditioning Treatment; Weleda Rosemary Conditioning Oil
    Stylers: JC Confident Coils; IN Volumizing Spray; IN Perfect Hold Hairspray; John Masters Sea Mist; Bumble Bb. Gel; Kenra Firm-Hold Gel; Sevi Blue Yarrow Sea Salt Spray

    Can you post the ingredients of your shampoo and conditioner?   Ingredients can make a big difference.  

    I also don't know much about hair cuts, but my assumption is that a cut won't make a tremendous difference to root curl. I 2nd @Therese1's suggestion to check out some of those techniques.  I have  flat top problems myself and find concentrate on scrunching my roots while upside down really helps.

    Hi I’m a guy and my hair is a lot like yours. I’ve had curly hair cuts and the cuts haven’t helped much with root curl. But the cuts definitely helped with making my hair more wavy curly.

    Hello! II want to get myself cornrows , but I heard such braids are very limited since hair grows out and it won't look as good. . Despite the fact that I'm half black, I never tried any "black hairstyles" before because growing up my white mom wouldn't let me and say they're ghetto. But now I'm going to be a new me and it's always good to be adventurous and try things different.Wanna try long cornrows like here http://africanamericanhairstyling.com/cornrow-braid-styles/
    A little more info on my hair: It's type 3C fine hair, with low porosity, and unknown density (I think it's low too but not 100%). Also my hair is a dry mess at the moment because I've been too lazy to moisturize and probably doing something wrong in general anyway since it dries quickly, especially in the back of my head. Do I have to do something before heading to the salon to get my braids done or is that not necessary?

    I think your hair is typically straightened before braiding, but that might depend on the texture of your hair.  I think your best bet is to ask the stylist who's going to do it what you should do.
