Need help with thermal reconditioning in Sydney

orangemoon11orangemoon11 Registered Users Posts: 2
I just moved to Sydney, Australia from upstate New York last week, and my hair has looked like a bad wig since I stepped off the plane. Oh, the humidity! As far as I can tell, and I'm new to all this curl stuff, I'm a type 2B-C. At home I can step out of the shower, put in some leave-in conditioner, and generally it will dry in waves to ringlets and looks decent. Here it just gets HUGE. I have been seriously considering thermal reconditioning, but if I do it, I want to do it right.

Is there anyone that lives here that can recommend a salon/stylist?

    It's the dead of summer, you've just arrived and you are talking about something drastic. Why don't you wait a bit and see if your products need some ajustment to account for hard/soft water, among other things.

    Hang in there!

    Everyone I know talked me out of doing that to my hair. I'm glad I didn't flatten my curls permanently. But hey, if you seriously want to do it, go for it.

    I've been frying my hair all year so far, and One day my mom couldn't do it for me, so this week so far i haven' and I've decided to stop straghtening so much. But it all destroyed some of my hair, it will be a while before it can go back to normal. Definatley try some different hair products before you go there. Because you mgiht regret it.
