Introducing myself :)

Hi everyone! My hair has never been chemically altered but I've been flat ironing it from the time I was 13 until my 20th birthday this year. I'll be honest, I really didn't like to wear my hair curly, hated it even. I couldn't manage it all but that's just because I didn't know how to care for it.

It's pretty dense but the individual strands are pretty fine and are weighed down easily, frizz a lot and I never seem to get the bounce and spring that other curlies do :( but I'm still trying to find my 'perfect' regimen.

This site has really helped me a lot in learning how to care for my hair!! It's one of the best I've come across! A great big thank you to everyone who contributes:thumbright:

Since I've been paying attention to the advice here my hair has been thanking me and I'm forever grateful :)
