Hi everyone,

I am new here and this is my first post so I hope this is in the right place!

I would like to find out what I can do next to my hair to help smooth my curls....either my hair is frizzy or dry or over something but I am at a loss, so I need y'alls help! I can't get that nice smooth soft curl like so many pictures I have seen here!! Take a look and tell me what you think! What should I try???

Here are a few pics so you can get an idea:

I believe my hair is 2C. Here are the products I am using:

CO- Suave coconut
conditioner - Eulence
Curl Keeper - comb through soaking wet hair
KCCC- scrunched in wet hair
microfiber towel scrunch
BRHG scrunched in
Diffuse dry
SOTC

My curls are coming out more and more the longer I am doing CG, but would really like to figure out what else I need to do. Any advice would be so appreciated!!

Thanks!

    Do you know your hair's properties? If you know those it can help determine if or how much protein you should use. Fine hair almost always needs protein treatments. Porous hair usually needs protein treatments. They can make a big difference if you need them.

    thickness and texture

    I should have put that!

    Thick hair
    Normal texture
    Low to medium porosity

    Just did Emergencee protein treatment and deep conditioner 2 night ago- it did not help at all.
