In the transitioning process. Help!
Hi everyone. Im new to all of this. I have 3b hair and have been having it straighted for 5 years. My last one was in febuary which turned out to be a nightmare. My hair broke off in clumps, and I had a chemical burn on my scalp. I was told to check out the curlygirl book by massey. Since then i have decided to go back natural. I have been having deep conditioning treatments every 5-6 weeks. I can tell my scalp is better and its not breaking off anymore. My concern is how to style it. I usually blow it out straight or let it air dry and scrunch with angell. When I try to wear it curly my roots are super curly and the underneath is trying to curl. But the canopy is lifeless, and the ends dont curl at all. And forget using a curling iron because it doesnt hold the curl. Help! What should i be doing differently. Also I want long hair so should I keep having it trimmed? I only have 2 1/2 inches of regrowth. Do hair vitamins really work?
