I curly permed (big mistake) my daughters hair in feb, at first it seemed fine but just before the third touch up her hair broke, has become A LOT shorter and she is soo upset. I've had it in braids for a month, took it out last night and looks even shorter :-( I think maybe as these were braids were the end was left out (I didn't want but my mum insisted they'd look nice) and was a nightmare to take out last night. I just want her natural hair back as even though it was extremely thick it was in a much better state and longer.
So how do I grow it out back to natural hair? Does it have to be cut? As this will be really damaging for her (she doesn't want to go to school today) but I'd do it if it was the best thing for her hair.
