    So my hair is growing back really fast, which is great...HOOOWEVER, I been playing with my hair by twisting it and in my other thread, about me chopping it off, I was telling another member that my hair wasn't twisting or curling and I figured it was because a little bit of relaxer was in it, but I'm quite sure it's gone after a lil snipping of where I saw some relaxed hair. Anyways, so I been twisting my hair and my hair will spiral up now or curl but it only does that on the side...In the BACK of my head, my hair won't friggin' twist! Especially on top towards the back of my crown. And it looks silly with the sides twisted and curly but the other part is just "Blah"...

    Anyone know how to fix that?

    I been wetting my hair and putting a little of the ECO Gel in it and it would define my curls but it won't help the other parts, so I'm kinda stumped.

    Here are some pics...

    On the back you'll see where I've been trying to twist it and you can see my scalp a little.

    The side is fine however....

    The inconsistency you describe may be from heat damage. You may need to trim the back more and then you will notice your curls becoming more distinct. This also happens when someone wears a lot of styles where they pull the hair up in a ponytail...but from experience, trimming will do the trick!

    Heat damage affects the hair you don't see.

    Deep protein and conditioner treatments helped me. Eventhough you did the big chop, your hair is still adjusting, so many naturals will share the same story and sometimes wear protective styles during that phase or simple trims will do it, but each one's hair is different so you try different things until you find what works!

    It looks like you have multiple hair textures/types which is common. It looks like 4a on the sides and maybe 4b in the back and I am no hair typing expert but that's what it looks like to me.
    You may find something that helps blend the two or you may just have to accept the fact that you have different textures that behave differently.

    Yup! And I was also reading somewhere and on here that your hair pattern can be different on different parts of the dome

    you might have to go to a stronger twisting agent such as beeswax to get ur twists to hold...my hair at first did not want to hold it's twist because it's kinda fine...but after a couple of months with beeswax i was able to switch to a lighter gel such as shea butter since my hair had gotten use to being twisted in that fashion....bottom line is that u have to train ur hair after years of rockin the relaxer style...good luck!

    one love
