Since starting this blog I’ve received a couple of emails from people talking about how their hair was wavy and went straight (or noticeably straighter) after a haircut. They were upset and confused about why this happened. I personally haven’t experienced this so far, but it’s something I’ve seen discussed quite a bit in wavy and curly groups that I’m in. I’ve learned enough about it that I thought I’d share a blog post on this topic for those who need help.
Can wavy hair go straight after a haircut?
Sometimes wavy hair does go straight (or straighter) after a haircut. This is commonly referred to as curl shock or scissor shock. The good news is, it’s temporary!
