Cannot Keep a hairstyle!
I have 4a/4b hair. I started transitioning and whacked off the permed ends about a few months back. How she cut my hair is mushroom top like. Then she put on a wave nouveau. I rocked that for a month. I still have a few waves but I don't put in the activator or da lotion because my hair frizzes easily so i have to slather it on my hair. It leaves it greasy and drippy. So I been doing the wash and go. I'll shampoo with Pantene Prov Relaxed and Natural. I condition with Suave with cocunut. I'll put in Cantu leave in conditioner, Pantene moisturuzer, and then IC gel. Then shake my drippy hair. Then go! It looked cute these past two weeks. However I have been looking like a wet dog these past few days. I have no idea how to get out the nouveau completely to try the wash and go like that. Also, I used to slick my hair back with Let's Jam and bristle brush on top of drippy Pantene moisturuzed hair and air dry. That was cute for a few weeks then frizz was getting out of control around my edges, even when I tie it down with silk scarf at night! Any ideas on how to perfect these styles or any other suggestions? I am not will to try twist sets or bantu knots again. I did those a million times But after all the failures, time wasted, and embarrassment, I decided those are not for me. I am scared to curl my own hair cause it's so short in the back. Thank you for your time and attention.
