i had a nightmare for years because every time i would walk into a hairdressers they would look at me and say "ugh, we dont do your hair" with a smirk. the cheek! well youre obviously not a very good hairdresser then, are you, if you can only cut straight hair?! i got really stressed out about it and went to a specialist afro hairdresser once and they charged me a fortune for the worst haircut in the world, it was all uneven and scraggly and there was a huge 'step' in it. my hairdresser now is great, she didnt turn me away just because i have semi-afro style hair. she likes a challenge! when she straightens it her eyes are all red afterwards cause she has been standing over the hairdryer for so long, bless her.(Original post by glitterdreams)
Although both of them hate their hair because of the hassel! they say they have trouble at the hairdressers too because no-one can cut it properly!

Le Vintage - i have very curly hair, and i find that altering evn the hair conditioner I use can make a big difference to my curls. Since curly hair tends to be drier than other types, try hair shampoos and conditioners from ranges such as Dove, and Aussie, which i personally find very good to alternate. Maybe invest in trial sizes of products to find out what suits you - Boots usually sell them in the summertime for when people go on holiday - I find that Dove and Frizz Ease are particularly good for smaller, more 'testable' product sizes.
I use hair serum and hair mousse afterwards to style curls with. For serum, I get some random brand that my hairdressers sells, but Frizz Ease is a good one. For hair mousse, Frizz Ease again is excellent, but another good one is Pantene hair mousse.
Finally, to keep curls in place, maybe use a diffuser attachement on your hairdryer when drying your hair.
