Finally after waiting for over a month my hairdresser was able to come and cut and put a temporary colour in my hair. it's so much easier to style when it's layer BUT I have to blow dry it straight until it grows a bit. The natural curl is hard to style if my hair is too short and it doesn't look it's best.
I also found a new shampoo I like that is sulfate free. Yay LOréal - who knew.
