So I OC'd the top part of my hair today - too much LI I think so i just pulled that half back. Lo and behold... I finally saw the bottom layer of my hair on display. This is the shortest part of my style & therefore gets trimmed the most often & takes minimal diffuser heat. Its probably far and away the healthiest.

Im surprised! Real live spirals. Gives me motivation to continue taking care of my hair. Cant believe I spent so much time fighting what grows out of my head!

Last pic is awkward I know lol

    Pretty! Since taking better care of my hair, I've noticed the same thing. My bottom layer, which I thought was almost straight a couple weeks ago, spirals and waves pretty nicely now. I keep wondering exactly what I'm doing differently under there so I could make it all look like that, lol.

    Looks great. Totally wish all of my underlayer did that, but I've nice spirals next to loose waves. Very frustrating.

    Hey for a change in a couple of weeks, you're doing great! I wonder the same thing tho :lol: It's taken me seven - count em, seven! - months and 3 haircuts to notice a real difference.

    Your hard work paid off though! I always love seeing your siggy pics. Your curls are so shiny and even! I don't think my pattern will ever be that even.
