threw a tantrum a few weeks ago and tried to chemically straighten my curls, hair FRIED and had to get it all cut off (short than my boyfriends).

i've taken a serious vow to appreciate, care for, and love my curls from here on out starting now as they grow back.

this is a pic taken last year, what type would you say my hair is?

    I would say probably a 2c/3a also. When it grows longer does it get curlier? I'm a 2b/3a combo and mine gets curlier as it gets longer.
    2b/3a, primarily use Jessicurl and DevaCurl products, Curls Hair Tea conditioner and various gels. I'm modified CG-ish since 5/04.

    I agree 2c/3a. You have pretty curls. I am sorry about your incident, but the silver lining is you get to have a fresh start and will have virgin hair!!! It will probably be at its curliest as it grows out.

    Nature's Gate Awapuhi Volumizing Conditioner
    Graham Webb Making Waves gel
    jojoba or coconut oil as a DT

    Hair is pretty great now that it's colder, now I'm focusing on my skin. Sniffle.
