What should i do with my african american hair/?

i don't know what to do with my hair. i am half mexican and half african american and i don't know if i should relax it or let my curls grow back. when i was younger my hair was curly but then my mom relaxed my hair and now it's all dry.now i am trying to grow out my curls. i only have about an inch to an inch and a half of curls and the rest of my hair is nappy and dry.(typical black hair) what im asking for is that you help me decide- do i relax it and forget about the curls;grow out my hair and for however long it takes for my curls to grow out just leave it natural; or c-get something done chemically to make my hair curly?

I would let your curls grow out. More chemicals will ruin it even more. It will take a while to grow your hair out, but it will be worth it. Do you really want to relax your hair for the rest of your life? If you don't mind short hair, I would cut off all of the relaxed part too.

Don't put anymore chemicals in your hair,especially if you want it curly. Just grow your hair out and cut a little of the relaxed stuff off every 6-8 weeks. Check this website for tips on growing your hair out faster/

You could get extensions. Your hair can be growing out underneath, so when you are tired of the extensions, take them out and then relax your hair.

the more chemicals you put in your hair, the more your hair is going to get like you have it now...since you are mixed, what may be happening is that as with many mixed latinos as you grow older, your hair gets more curly (tighter)...but, you should not feel bad about that...your hair was obviously damaged with the stuff that your mom put in it...what you need to do is condition and treat your hair in order for it to become healthy again...don't put anything else in your hair that has any chemicals, not even hair color...just spend the next couple of months nursing your hair back to life...i'm sure it's going to look so cute once it gets healthy again...if you decide in the future to get anything done to your hair...you could just iron it out or get it blow dried at the salon...you wont have to do anything permanent to it

relaxers can be hard on the hair, if your not afraid to get your hair cut, you can cut of some of the damaged hair a little at a time, hair grows 1/2 inch a month on average, so you could go in and have them cut off a half inch a month to try and bring back your curls that way.



if you're looking for a chemical solution in the mean time, you can ask if they can Perm your hair curly..



but its prolly better just to let your hair heal rather than putting chemicals on it. putting more chemicals on already chemically damaged hair can actually cause your hair to fall off(chemical cut) which can cause split ends and make you hair look worse than it already was.



the stylist can recommend products to you that may help with the condition of your hair that will help it grow out more healthy.



hope it works out for you.

well, it all depends on how 'dry' and unhealthy your straight hair is looking. trying to re-curl it will only make it worse, but will be less noticable because it's curled. i don't know of any 'chemicals' you can use, because as far as im concerned, curls need to be burnt into place. (like when you use a hair curler, NOT fire lol)



so if you really want permenant curls, go and get a perm. it's like one big hair curler that lasts until it grows out. (which takes a long time so you will only have to get it done about two times a year)



anyway good luck :)
