My name is Tomy (pronounced Tow-Me) from Cincinnati Ohio. Right now I'm trying to grow my hair out but it's been kind of troublesome so far. I'm kind of new to this so I don't have much of a routine. I usually use some conditioner in the shower then put some gel in it after I get out. After it dries it looks like this.


I used to grow my hair out a lot when I was younger but lately my hair has felt rough no matter what and incredibly frizzy without gel. I don't like using gel because it takes hours to dry and it makes my hair way smaller, but without it my hair can end up looking like this.


My hair texture is coarse and I should have normal porosity. I'm pretty sure my hair type is 3c but I could be wrong. I'd like to be able to wear my hair out when it gets longer but if I can't figure it out I'll just wear braids. Thanks for any suggestions you might have.
