help me with my hair please!

Hello! I (as you can tell) need help with my hair.

Here are my issues:

1. My hair is SUPER thick so it doesn't exactly curl up that well.

2. My hair is two different textures! Here is the thing, My hair is about 3a-ish in the front part of my hair, and underneath the middle-ish area. And THEN, in the back of my hair it's all semi wavyish and flat! I REALLY REALLY need help with this issue.:sleepy3:

3. I have NO CLUE on what to do about my flat top! I scrunch it, duckbill clip it, you name it!! I have tried it all.

4. I don't know what products to use and in which order.

and last but not least, 5. I put my hair into a do rag thingy (wrap a t-shirt around my hair) to try to keep my attempted "do" last overnight but when I take it out it's all flat!



I know this is alot to ask for help for, but I would appreciate help with at least #3.


Thank you! :compress:

    first -- have you read all the newbie threads? lots of info there.

    do you know your hair's properties? - texture, porosity, elasticity? the texture and porosity are important in deciding which products to use.

    here is a good link for info:
    dormroomcurly.blogspot.com/2008/12/style-definitions-table.html

    sounds like you need a good haircut with a good curly stylist. a good curly stylist can blend in the different hair types. most of us have more than one type.

    if you give us more info, hair properties, what products you have tried, a photo would be helpful, we can give you more help.

    3a, some 2c & 3b, medium texture, porosity normal, low elasticity :-(
