I was a 2c/3a, but then i truly got my hair layered a;nd I dont know what to think of it now. I used to have tightish pipecurls that just started like 2 inches down my head and went to the bottom. Now, I have kinda ;big loose curls, no more pipe curls or ringlets or anything. I miss my old curls, but at the same time my new do is more functional.So, have any of you others had this kind of change happen? And does anyone know how to bring some of my old curl back?
Should get you to my fotki, if not tell me:

    Haven't had the same thing. Actually, just the opposite. I had some funked out waves, then got it layered by a Deva stylist and am now getting bigger spirals.

    I think part of the transformation was the gel I started using. It's more moisturizing (well, for some, I guess) and had a higher hold factor than some of my other gels. I have also found that the more moisture the gel tends to have (I live in an arid cimate, though), the better my waves are.

    Maybe your layers were cut too short. 2c /3as need length to twist and swirl.
    2C wavy with some spirals. CG since April 07. Medium texture and porosity.

    when i look at pictures of my hair from 3 years ago, before I went cg, i had ringlets all over and my hair was halfway between shoulders and bra strap length. I had a really bad haircut last summer and ended up with shoulder length hair and poof, no more ringlets. Had a couple of trims and a haircut since and my hair hasnt reached the length that it was but im starting to notice the longer pieces starting to spiral on the bottoms.

    I'm hoping with more length, comes more ringlets. This could be whats happening to you. :)
    2b with some ringlets. Modified CG.

    My hair really needs the length to get the spirals. I just got a haircut last week and now I have more wavies and not so much spirals. Boo hoo. But once I get my length back I will have more spirals again. It is weird. When my hair is long it is super curly, nice ringlets, but cut it off and not so pretty any more.
